Wtf?
« on: June 21, 2009, 04:03:01 pm »
I'm sorry, but maybe I'm just being stupid. But could someone help explain to me the logic that runs through Mark Hughes' head?

I mean, we've got a shitload of money so I'm glad we're finally spending it. But where is the logic in buying 3 - 4 'quality' strikers? And for ridiculous prices? I mean, Bellamy (waste of money imo), Cruz (18m it seems), Tevez (30m was last report? Looks likely we'll get him, but not certain obviously) and now Eto'o for £70m...(Barca are on the verge of accepting, and with nearly £200k/Week I can't see Eto'o saying no.)

My question is where the hell he plans on playing these players? I can see some what of an amazing forward with Tevez and Eto'o up, and Robinho supporting. Ireland and Wright-Phillips on the side? Or possibly a triple entente with Cruz, Tevez and Eto'o upfront? (This is the only logical explanation I can see for him chasing all three of them with bloody high asking prices). Anyone have any ideas? Cos I'm stumped.

I still don't see how 4-3-3 would allow him to use the quality players we already have. With that, lets assume we succeed in buying Tevez, Cruz and Eto'o. So they're our three strikers. Now, usually we would say Robinho, Ireland and Wright Phillips would be playing mid. But now we've bought Barry...So we have to drop a quality city player, which all of us are very pleased with (as we would hate to see any one of those three midfielders gotten rid of) to make room for a player which I don't think is much better.

I thought Robinho would be moving soon anyway, and I think Wright-Phillips is over rated.

Yeah, we're aware of it not being that great. We have Richards and Dunne which, whatever you say really, is still a solid defence. We have good defenders, just not great. I read somewhere that there was some defender we were trying to buy, I can't remember who. But meh, we have some decent players back there.

Dunne, imo is one of the best in the league, however Richards seems distinctly average, he doesn't seem to bring anything special to the team.

Remembering he's still pretty young and got a lot to learn. I think he can be something great. Tbh, personally, I don't think defenders reach their proper peak till around mid-career. 20 years old and already playing internationally shows at least some good potential.
