Just read this beauty of a post on the reading forum:
Hughes would be a very decent appointment in my opinion. Certainly he knows what he is doing. Certainly he knows how to play football.
He does have a very drab and dour demeanour. That is the reason why people don't like him. But he has taken Blackburn to the top 6. He has achieved all of Stokes best Premier League finishes. He did well enough at Fulham. His teams always seem to place around the top ten in the Premier League. Something we could only dream of at Reading. We'd be delighted with that sort of consistent league finish.
Another positive is that it seems that he has managed these impressive league positions with clubs of a similar stature as us without leading to massive financial problems at Stoke, Blackburn or Fulham when they eventually dropped out the top division post Hughes like we have seen at other clubs like Pompey and Bolton.
Therefore he can do very well whilst being sensible at the same time. Not necessarily the case with Harry Redknapp who has left Pompey and QPR in big difficulties following his managerial stewardship.
I would be all for Hughes. As has been mentioned before. He has never managed at Championship level. But there is plenty of evidence that he can put a side together. So if he can put a good side together then I'm sure we can win promotion from the Championship with Hughes in charge.
Bloody hell again. That bloke is seriously opting for Hughes because he's better than Redknapp, like they're the only managers in existence? While Bowen gets to call himself Director of Football and Kia whatisface is still able to get inside a football club front door without anyone saying "Release the hounds"?
Just how often do crooks and incompetents have to screw clubs up in full view of a media that reports every time a Premier League footballer farts before anybody notices they are crooks and incompetents?
Please let it happen. Hughes relegating that bunch of plagiarist provincial nerds to division three while handing millions of pounds to his mate Jia and then f-cking off with a seven figure sum for his “efforts” would be too good.
Karma for stealing “Come On You Rs” as a song. That was unforgivable.
