I Thought Mark Hughes Was Mr Discipline Man?

Google language translator



From Jo being fined for breaking his curfew, Robinho being arrested over an allegation of rape and this week`s drama of Richards being arrested over an alleged attack at a nightclub? I heard great things about Hughes from Blackburn fans about how Hughes kept his players in line, but surely theirs something not quite right now?

It seems the players don`t respect the manager any more than they would respect me if I was manager of the club. Mark Hughes has backed both Richards and Robinho in the latest charges, but is that a sign of understanding between player`s and manager or rather Mark Hughes trying to support them in an attempt to become friends with the players?

You could say that I`m talking complete rubbish but it seems odd that when Sven was manager the players where allowed to do mostly anything they wanted and nothing major like this happened, yet Hughes comes in and talks the talk about getting the players back to a schedule and tighten up the slack that Sven left. When in contrast its under his regime that the players are getting caught up in arrests?

Don`t get me wrong, Richards and Robinho have my backing until proven guilty as it is most likely some random person trying to get a bit of money by throwing an allegation at the most famous person they could find that night, but something is not right. Meanwhile another charge involves Shaun Wright-Phillips who will also hear his fate after kicking out at Delap last weekend, on Monday.

*laughs* Surely you can't say the players are not disciplined, its because we have suddenly turned into England's most wanted thats the reason with the storys!

Istanbul and PL European qualification here we come. Staring with a 9-0 thrashing of Middlesbrough!

I think there is a bit of a long bow being drawn here. I cannot see why tighter discipline would suddenly make Richards get involved in a fight at a night club for instance, surely under Sven he would have still gone to the night club because he could and surely he could still have got into a fight.

i don't think we will qualify for the eufa cup through the fair play the n this year,LOL we will be further up the league instead as for the allegations to robinho and richards no-one really knows what went on except them 2 and the club, (unless its in the sun,mirror)then it must be true...... not we will get the trophies we deserve PATIENCE AARON
