Is Mark Hughes A 'Dead Man Walking'?

Is Mark Hughes A 'Dead Man Walking'?

Google language translator


Dare I say it but the majority of Manchester City fans are calling for our manager's head. Therefore, we ask the simple question, 'Is Mark Hughes A Dead Man Walking'?

Not only ours, but several other City forums are full of disgruntled fans all asking similar questions - is it time to get rid of the ex Rag?

It appears an awful lot of you have finally lost patience with the Welshman, especially after the humiliating way we exited the FA Cup on Saturday. Perhaps it wasn't the result that is close to breaking the camels back, but the way City players performed. In essence, it was an embarrassment.

With the above in mind, we have decided to run yet another forum poll, however on this occasion we ask the question...

I think so many of us are so demoralised following seriously raised expectations following Svengate and the takeover. The fact that so many players are not motivated to perform for Hughes or Manchester City is shocking. Maybe Robinho was right when he said a number of them were fearing the axe. I certainly didn't expect to see only 13 wins in 33 games considering the 7 players added to the squad last summer.

I admit that some of his lineups have been odd to say the least and he has been quick to fall out with players.

Just weighing up the fixture list. I reckon we need to beat at least 3 of Pompey, Wigan, Newcastle and Stoke this month to stabilise the league position before the squad becomes stretched again by the European games. A tall order, even with 5 signings this week.

Merlin that would prob be better for both teams. Hughes is uncomfortable spending cash on real top level quality that we need despite our owners wanting him to. Chelsea does not want to spend anymore and want a man who is comfortable dealing and getting the most out of an existing good squad which Scolari is struggling with.

I would'nt say dead man walking but more a man out of his depth. I would give him until the end of the season to sort things out. I ask does that one humilating performance Of Sven's 8-1, compare to the many defeats under Hughes?. If you ask me, Atleast Sven had the team together, and knew how to draw that wining mentality.

I miss sven. Id sack hughes tommorow. I reckon we will lose at pompey and im wary of wigan coming eastlands and getting something. Steve bruce would love that. Would 1point in the next two games be good enough?? seems like most fans are happy, im not.
