'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Hughes For Fulham

It was finally announced yesterday that Mark Hughes would commence duties at Fulham FC next week.

I am sure that most of us at Vital Manchester City want to wish Mark well. Of course there are 2 matches next season we don't want to see his team win, but I hope he does well.

It is interesting to see that he apready seems to have his sights on some of our footballers and he could be useful in helping us trim our squad.

Also he will be once working with Alistair who was highly regarded at Eastlands and has helped Fulham get off to a great start under his guidance.

So, good luck to both of you, except of course against City.

Finally for those of you asking about the future for Gibbo, my understanding, from a source totally unrelated to City is that he is headed to Dubai to team up with David O'Leary at Al Ahli FC. This is unconfirmed, but the cocoa tins are not often wrong.

Wish him all the best. He was in charge of some truely memorable games in his time at CoMS, instigating the beginning of our resurgance. He may not have overseen the transformation, but he certainly helped lay down the foundations. I hope fellow blues feel the same.

Sparky had difficulty with the Brazilians for starters and they let him down badly, every one of them, IMHO. That said, for his start he was also too stubborn and never had a Plan B when it wasn't working out for us. Still, he singlehandedly fronted the club with dignity when Thaksin went into hiding that summer and stopped Irleand from leaving for Sunderland. He rapidly took control of Carrington and made it a serious workplace. That said, he was never ADUG's appointment and I guess it was no surprise when he got the boot. All the best Leslie.

I think Sparky is probably the type of manager that can do better with the 15M he'll be given at Fulham than the 150M he had at his disposal at city. He did do a few good signing for us though...Kompany and Given probably with the best value for money. Best of luck to him at the sympathetic Fulham.

i wish Sparky all the best in his new job, i was one of his biggest fans in his time at city, as i hoped he would get a 5yr mandate, as with any new man, but i am glad he's back in football, as i dont think his record with us was BAD, just was not the Sheikh's choice of manager so was on a limited time scale since the takeover,i just hope he does not come back to haunt us at CoMs, but he most probably will, i hope the fans give him a warm welcome no matter what has gone on, and been said last year, i wonder if he shakes M Cooks Hand? ala Bridge and Terry?????? it makes it all interesting!!!!
