That Same Old Question?
I`ve never really liked Mark Hughes and I`ve never denied that fact. Through some games though I have to say he`s made some right choices and the team have performed well but this awful away record and the questions raised over his squad selection have over balanced the positives and our club is looking negative for most occasions. What is the next step that City should take?
Apart from the UEFA Cup, their really hasn`t been to much for us fans to shout about. The 6-0 thrashing we delivered on Portsmouth got the fans applauding but it didn`t take long before things started to go wrong. The signing of Robinho was also another happy time for the club but that had hardly anything to do with Mr Hughes. So what exactly has Mark Hughes achieved from this so called "blank cheque book"?
To be fair the signings of Bellamy, Kompany and De Jong have shown that Mark Hughes has an eye for good talent. However his failure to bond the team together and get them producing the flashy football that was produced under Sven is still a mystery to me. When Hughes managed Blackburn they were known for their work-rate but lacked that class to send them further. At City, Hughes has that class in abundance but somehow seems clueless in finding the form that could see us in the top 6 where we belong. I know City are not the strongest bunch of players but what they lack in psyche they more than much with skill. Elano is one of the main players for City who has fallen victim of this. Is Hughes right in dropping the lad, just so City can add a bit more "bite"?
It`s been proven that when Elano is brought on he changes the pattern of the game. His eye for that final ball is something City have been missing recently, and I am completely mystified to how Elano is not picked from the start. Hughes`s squad selection is something I hardly ever agree on. I am one of those fans that loved the attacking approach Keegan supplied to us. So to see every line-up a 4-5-1 is disappointed especially when Caicedo has excelled this season. I know that when Petrov comes back it may be a completely different story but it`s too late for Hughes to blame his injuries on the performance of a team he selects.
Is it time Mark Hughes is sacked? Or should he be given more time to deliver? If you ask me, Hughes is a man out of his depth! The UEFA cup is that last piece of string holding him up and even if we do manage to win the cup, I still would like to see another man in-charge regardless of our final position. Robinho and Co will work better from a Manager they respect! Rant over!
