Not that I'm angrily obsessed by the media's Hughes love-in or anything (like many on here)...but this from the BBC website made me smile:
Did keeping Southampton up mask Hughes' indifferent record? Mark Hughes ensured Southampton stayed in the Premier League last season, but his record since taking charge at St Mary's makes for grim reading.
Since his appointment in March, the Saints have lost nine of their 16 Premier League games - only Newcastle have been beaten more times (10).
In fact, Southampton are second bottom of the table if you look at all the results since he took over - his side have taken just 13 points from his 16 games at the helm - only Huddersfield have claimed fewer points (9).
