    Over the piece he's done very well for Stoke.

    They're having a terrible season though, and that result today was a shocker.

    Premier League chairmen get twitchy at the thought of relegation and losing out on all that cash.

    This was inevitable really.

    He just seems like a massively arrogant, unlikeable individual. A bit like Billy Davies.

    He was good with Wales and Blackburn, and I think he was unlucky to get emptied by Man City. He seems a decent enough bloke, so I hope he gets another job in the PL.

    Done great job at Blackburn and Fulham and kept Stoke in the EPL which was his only remit.

    Fantastic player in his day but just curious why you don't like the guy what's he done that upsets you so much ?

    I only read this as was curious as to what the Hibs connection was.
    There doesn't need to be a Hibs connection. The forum is for people to talk about "Hibs and football in general".

    Mark Hughes will become a likely target for the rangers....

    He had quite the career.

    Domestic honours with three English clubs, European medals with two of them. And played for Barcelona and Bayern Munich. You'd settle for that.
    There's only one thing better than a Hibs calendar and that's two Hibs calendars

    Underrated as a player and manager imo.
    I've always felt like he's just managed to keep a lid on it during his managerial career, seemed to always be a smidgeon away from going radge.

    As a player? He was well rated and played for the biggest clubs.

    As a manager? Better record than most.

    Wouldn't be surprised if he has a massive ego but don't they all? Maybe he's just come to the end of the road.

    There was a Stoke fan on radio tonight saying Hughes had a total win record of 38 percent over his Premier League managerial career. He was clearly of the opinion that Hughes was, statistically at least, a poor manager and was glad to see the back of him.

    Does anyone know what Stubbs and Lennon's win percentage is at Hibs?

    I'm sure Mark Hughes won't be out of work for long unless he chooses to be. Of course there's a decent chance that Stoke will replace him with a manager who will have been judged in the past to have been not good enough at another EPL club!

    The focus on TV cash has engendered such short term thinking that the people running clubs end up sacking managers who have a run of poor results even if they know they are perfectly capable .

    Exactly, I canít believe the OP didnít run this past you before posting it. Shocking.

    Hughes is a victim of his own limited success, heís done a more than decent job without having stellar success and heíll likely get another mid table gig before long.

    Loved him as a player, fiery, robust, but with great technical ability and a scorer of some sublime goals.

    Out of all fergusons lot that went on to be managers heís probably one of the best, not much competition there mind.

    Another millionaire sacked, presumably with another hefty pay off.
    My heart bleeds.

    I tend to agree, as have zero interest in Stoke City, so find it odd to find a thread discussing their managers demise on here but each to their own. Wonder if there was a thread on the Stoke City message boards discussing Stubbs when he left Hibs?
