fully agree...i think hughes has been awful! Didnt strenghten where we needed strengthing last season, left back....we all knew it then...and still know it now. ben haim was a massive waste of cash. and it appears he wants warnock or bridge...one was a liverpool reject, who is very average in an average side, the other is vastly over-rated and rarely plays football. he also wants roque santa cruz, a plyer, before last season onyl averaged 5 a season in his career. There is no evidcne this season that he can carry this on. hughes signed him on a small fee and is now willing to pay 18 mill for him for one seasons work, crazy! we are 1 point off relegation spots. He refuses to play elano, one of the best players at the club, dropped Jo who's young and was starting to look good - confidence comes with goals. he fell out with ball and hamann.. ^ this is a sign of man who cant controll a dressing room, he doesnt deal well with the foreign players..and persisted with taffy evans for ages. despite him being a donkey

As I have said before.......I will reserve any judgement on MH until the end of the season.........everyone in the world is saying he is doing crap, and with all that money too........yet he hasnt really had chance to actually buy players without worrying about money yet........all the players he bought were actually before we had the big money........ .....again ...as I have said before......if we are in the same or similar position this time next season, then I would be saying things are not being done right by MH, and maybe he is not the man for City.....but until then he has my backing !!!!

TommyTB agree with most of what you said, but Hughes had no idea what he had when he signed and I think he was then told he had limited funds. They were off chasing goofy. He signed TBH because he was either going to lose Dunney permanently to Pompey because of his contract talks and was going to lose him anyway because of suspension. There was a lot of talk about a CB, but TBH seemed to be the best on offer for what money he had. The season is not half way gone yet.

I think he probably tried to inject more steel into the side which hasn't worked with the type of players we have and has resulted in us giving silly fouls away which has now brought us 26 Yellow cards and 3 Red. So perhaps time to to revert to plan B.
