Not doing great is he? In fact Mark Hughes is now statistically worse than Pellegrino, poortvliet, Wotte, Pearson, Redknapp etc, and ignoring Dodd/Gorman and Wilkins is your worse manager since Wigley.
Probably the standard of your players these days hasn't helped though.
I can’t think of many clubs that have such an irrational hatred of another club who clearly aren’t and will never be their rivals. The hatred of Liverpool by Southampton fans is all rather embarrassing. OK, they have taken a few of your players, but that is due to your club philosophy and hierarchy. Big clubs nicking little club’s players is what happens everywhere in football today. You just need to accept it, and just accept that maybe one day you could win a cup again with a good team ethic and players who really want to play for your club.
The link provided just illustrates the point that Celtic fans mention the shrewd bit of business and their club being paradise, but fans of Soton just spew bile from every pore.
Frank Xerox: Would be playing older more committed players, and would have no messing about. The banter would be tops, and the team would walk-in the goals. The team would be sponsored by Sage.
Dirk Doone: Would play a lot of the youngsters, and would probably make Sims the captain because he is absolutely brilliant. Reed would be sidelined. The club would be a lot more serious, and would be run on real statistics, unlike the black box which was just that bloke who went to Tottenham..
Dune: Would make team predominantly British with a few European players from nice countries. All African and Asian players would be banned. He would be very sarcastic to the media when he showed up for games. The team would be sponsored by Yorkie.
Patred: Would sack Reed straight away, and get rid of the prima donna’s. With his vast experience he might do well, but he would tell the occasional fib about scouting reports on other teams and players.
Del Bianco: The banter would be absolutely top drawer. The team spirit would be good, and the captain of the week would be the one who had told the best jokes/ anecdotes. Every month there would be a special pre-match team talk to pep up the lads. Harry Enfield has been pencilled in for January.
Boris: The wages would sky rocket, and bonuses would be the order of the day. He would use every opportunity to get close to the friends of the wags. The team would be sponsored by Carling.
Chesham: Would be a throwback to the old days, no messing. Any players talking back, or not trying hard enough would be sidelined or sold. The mentality of the club would go back 50 years. All humour would be banned, except for people telling good stories with northern accents. The team would be sponsored by Allinson’s Bread.
Saint 22: Would sack Les reed from his New York Base immediately, and make Maida Vale his Uk HQ. The club would take on a new cynical edge. The team would run out to Benny and the Jets by Elton John.
