Mark Hughes Facing Both Barrels

Mark Hughes Facing Both Barrels

Google language translator


Attention Manchester City fans. Should the Blues lose against Premier League bottom club WBA on Sunday, Mark Hughes can be assured of one thing and that is he will be facing both barrels.

City is in a precarious position whereby anything less than a win against the Baggies could see the club drop down into the bottom three. Defeats against our up and coming opponents Hull City and Blackburn Rovers could realistically see us at the foot of the table.

The Club has gone on record and said they hope to bring in four, possibly five new faces during the January transfer window. Mark Hughes has drawn up a wish list of players and if they are available at the right price, City fans can expect to see an unfamiliar starting line-up once the window closes. A blessing to many as this current crop is simply not up to the task of keeping our Premier League status.

The tabloid press are slowly but surely, beginning to sink their teeth firmly stuck into Sparky. They want to see blood and perhaps, they might just get their wish should our incredible drop in form continue to spiral out of control.

This is my first published article whereby I am setting out the stall, albeit with trepidation. I know there are several regular Vital Manchester City forum posters who will read this and take it as personal insult, nevertheless it has to be said, Mark Hughes is walking on thin ice.

Should we witness another poor performance and defeat this weekend I promise I will throw caution to the wind and give Mark Hughes, both barrels.

None of us would have believed, even with the key players we've had missing this season that with the players we have we'd only have 5 league wins by the time we travel to West Brom. It's a conspiracy theorist's dream but putting the questions why aside, facts are facts and we are going to be in deep merde if we don't start winning.

Couldn't agree more. Have never been one to suffer the knee-jerk reactions of some fans who are prepared to call for a manager's head after two or three months, but things are starting to look pretty bad. The Santander result was abysmal, I know Hughes allegedly rested several of the first team, but we were terrible in all areas. Anything less than 3 points (well won, not jammy ones!) against the basement team and Hughes must go. Injuries to key players and some pretty average players in the squad (Vassell, Elano, Tal Ben Haim, Ball, Benjani, Jo, et al) have had me thinking that things would get better sooner rather than later, but I can't see where our next three points are coming from at the moment!

Im not expecting us to win, things being as they are, but we need to see the determination and motivation to produce a good performance at the least, if not a win. But I wont be panicing just yet.... we are 3 points off 10th place. Lets hope we get a good run soon, im not expecting it though!

if we dont win on Sunday we will get stuck down there in the relegation area for a while.......Hull will come to ours full of confidence.....and I think Blackburn will do a Spurs with a new manager, so that will also end up a very hard game.......

If you want to turn your club into a respectable one, you need stability. Keep HUGHES.....

Spuds , bottom three sack manager instant improvement in results. Sunderland , Keane walks , back to back wins. Blacburn sack Ince , instant win. I there a trend here? City are now in the bottom three , will Highes sleep tonight?
