SOME PLAYERS WHO BECAME SUCCESSFUL AFTER A POSITION CHANGE 1. Vincent Kompany He was a defensive midfielder back with Anderlecht and Man City in 2008 under Mark Hughes. In 2010, he changed to a centre- back and rated among the best in the world now. 2. Robin Van Persie From being a maverick left winger with Feyenoord to becoming one of the deadliest forwards in the game. Arsene Wenger put him in the front attack. 3. Gareth Bale He started as a left-back at Southampton and changed to a left winger. 4. Bastian Schweinsteiger Louis Van Gaal converted him from the right- wing to a defensive midfielder in 2009. 5. Thiery Henry From a winger with Monaco, in 2000, Wenger converted him into a front man. 6. Paul Scholes Started as a striker with United, in 1997, he shifted to the midfield due to injury of Roy Keane. ADD Yours if you know any...
Stoke City registered their first Premier League victory in Manchester as Mame Biram Diouf's fine solo effort stunned the champions. Man City 0-1 Stoke Diouf 58′ The Senegal international and former United striker raced 70 yards before slotting under Joe Hart. The hosts could have had a late penalty but Yaya Toure was booked for diving. Stoke had lost all 12 previous league matches at the Etihad Stadium and Old Trafford and manager Mark Hughes will savour this victory at his former club. The odds were stacked against the visitors who had not even scored at Manchester City in the Premier League By contrast, Manuel Pellegrini's men had failed to hit the net in just one of their last 70 home matches and the Chilean started with Sergio Aguero, who had taken just 23 seconds to score off the bench against Liverpool, up front. The Potters had failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 12 league matches but a resolute performance from Hughes's side saw them do just that and Diouf's second-half strike capped a . ...

Man City: their players will have a fall out over who has the biggest bank account 4. Arsenal: they always finish 4th 5. Liverpool: won't recover from losing Suarez 6. Everton: squad is identical to last season but teams around them will improve 7. Spurs: they need a world class striker to get to the UCL and they'll still miss Bale 8. Newcastle: would've said lower but they've actually signed players who can compete with any top club in the league 9. Stoke: Mark Hughes isn't as bad a manager as captain obvious once thought 10. Southampton: they'll suffer from losing players, but shouldn't be in a relegation battle 11. Sunderland: their ridiculous escape from relegation will inspire them 12. Swansea: no pressure of Europa League will mean they shouldn't worry about relegation 13. QPR: they'll put in a bid for Messi but their squad is good enoug ...

The Five Top Worst Spending Sprees Based on the Following Season’s Results 1. Manchester City 2008 Man City, with Mark Hughes as manager, spent about a £140m in 2008 when they signed numerous players including Brazilian international Robinho for a £32.5m from Real Madrid. When the January transfer window opened they paid £18m for Nigel De Jong £12m for Wayne Bridge and another £14m for Craig Bellamy. The team ended the season in 10th place after buying a total of 13 players. 2. Manchester City 2009 After forking over £140m in transfer fees the previous year, City followed it up by spending another £130m in 2009. This time Hughes bought players such as Roque Santa Cruz for £18m and then paid £25m for Emmanuel Adebayor another £16m for Kolo Toure, £25.5m for Carlos Tevez and £24m for Joleon Lescott. Hughes took them to fifth place and was sacked. Roberto Mancini took over and they finished the campaign still in fifth. 3. Manchester United 2001 Man United shelled out a total of £75.5m in 2001 ...
Arsenal v Stoke City: Arsenal have had a very impressive away run 4 d past 2 seasons but they've often had lethargic "hit and miss" perfomances at home. partly bcoz of the negativity of the home fans who hv always put them under pressure to win trophies. luckily, the fans will welcome Ozil today 4 his home debut so the atmosphere could be calm and positive! I haven't yet watched Stoke this season but my idea is that they hired Mark Hughes to change the way they play. 4rm Tony Pulis' long balls to smthing appealing to the fans; probably more possessive and attacking football. I have watched Hughes' teams 4 d past 8years and I must say he lets his talented players express themselves- remembering Gamst Pedersen, Robinho, Elano et al. looking at Stoke's results; a draw against Man City, 2 wins and a loss to Liverpool that could have been a draw had Jon Walters converted his penalty, I get the feeling Hughes hasn't changed much! expect a tough tackling team like his Blackburn team but with players free to atta ...
Preview 2013/14: October Fixtures: 5 Oct Sunderland A | 19 Oct Southampton H | 26 Oct Stoke City H First thoughts: The title race gathers pace with the onset of Autumn. Toughest test: Southampton were among the best teams to visit Old Trafford last term according to Sir Alex Ferguson and Mauricio Pochettino’s men are likely to provide another stern challenge this time around. With a great work ethic, bags of flair and plenty of spirit, they’re definitely a team to watch. Subplot: United might face former players John O’Shea, Phil Bardsley and Wes Brown at the Stadium of Light before welcoming ex-Reds striker Mark Hughes back to the Theatre of Dreams - the 1991 Cup Winners’ Cup hero is, of course, the new Stoke City boss after the Potters parted company with Tony Pulis. Miles to travel: 298 Last January: P3 W3 D0 L0 (Newcastle 0-3 United, United 4-2 Stoke, Chelsea 2-3 United) Rivals watch: Man City: Everton H, West Ham A, Chelsea A; Chelsea: Norwich A, Cardiff City H, Man City H; Arsenal: West Brom ...
BREAKING: until today Roque Santa Cruz was still a Man City player, proving that Mark Hughes is still the worst manager in the League.
A$ Monaco want to take Nasri and Ben Arfa from the prem back to Ligue 1.Mark Hughes set to be announced as Stoke boss in the next 48 hours. Man City want Sevilla skillster Jesus Navas. And Spurs could have a new £30 million strikeforce in David Villa and Leandro Damiao~ Santi
So with Stoke set to unveil Mark Hughes as their manager today or tomorrow, it's time to get behind the new boss. To be fair, Mark Hughes has done more good than bad. At Blackburn he worked wonders keeping them in the top 10 constantly. At Fulham he again got them into the top 10. At QPR and Man City he had money thrown at him and was told who to buy and play. QPR he kept up in his first season, but in his second season they were unsaveable! Even Harry Redknapp couldn't save them. I think that Hughes with Stoke (who have a solid plan) should be a very good team! He has done so much good in managing clubs than bad. Don't let the QPR job put people off him. That club is ran so badly that I don't think Alex Ferguson could have saved them. So let's get behind our new boss! I think this will be an exciting transfer window!!
Stuart Pearce was the last British manager to manage Man City? What about Mark Hughes?!
Can Mancini retain his job? by Sunday Oliseh 03/04/2012, 09:49 Roberto Mancini, manager of the world’s richest club, Manchester City, is definitely having sleepless nights these days! Why? His job and future as manager of this, now world renowned club, is threatened to say the least! Manchester City lie second in the Premier League, 5 points behind eternal Rivals Manchester United. Thanks to their 3-3 home draw vs. Sunderland whilst Manchester United came off at Blackburn with a 0-2 victory. Who could have thought this possible just a few months ago when City lead the pack, at one point with as much as 9 points! Man City is arguably littered with world class players, bought expensively and in large numbers. The players who sit on the bench of this team are easily regulars in most teams around the world today. Sami Nasri (ex Arsenal) Carlos Tevez, Dzeko just to name a few! It boasts of talented players like Silva, Ballotelli, Yaya Toure, Kolo Toure, Sami Nasri , Gareth Barry, Carlos Tevez, Edin Dzeko and ...
Research by thesackrace.com has revealed that a staggering 52% of clubs in England changed its manager in 2012! In total, over the past twelve months, 48 of the 92 teams that make up the four English divisions found themselves searching for a new gaffer, either because they saw it necessary to swing the axe or found themselves looking for a new man to take charge after another club persuaded the previous boss leave. In the top flight, nine teams have seen managerial changes since the start of the year, with Chelsea and Queens Park Rangers now on to their third managers within the space of twelve months! In January, QPR relieved Neil Warnock of his duties at Loftus Road with the club one place above the relegation zone. In came Mark Hughes to replace Warnock and by the conclusion of the season, the former Wales, Man City and Fulham boss had been unable to improve things, finishing 17th, avoiding the drop by one point. A disastrous start to the season saw QPR go 12 games without a win, a run of form that br ...
Andrew's Premier League Predictions Wigan v Arsenal Arsenal has already had a great week and a win at Wigan will be the icing on the cake. Jack Wilshere, Aaron Ramsey have commited their future to the Gunners and the win at Reading was the best display we had seen from Arsenal in a long time. Wigan on the other hand have won only one in the last seven games. i dont see them getting anything from this game. Prediction: 0 - 4 Man City v Reading Carlos Tevez and Sergio Aguero both starting is a huge worry for Reading because they will run riot. Reading just doesnt have the quality or team depth of the Premier League. the ease at which Arsenal desposed them off is something that should worry Royal's manager Brian McDermott. Prediction: 3 - 0 Newcastle v QPR Newcastle has a team with quality players but most of them are out of form or injured which is the reason for their poor form. QPR made a master stroke decision to fire Mark Hughes early on. Harry Redknapp is still unbeaten but this should be a hard game f ...

In the footy world, what can you do with money? You can sign new players, extend contracts, and so on. Everyone does that. But then there's Man City. It all started when Mark Hughes left, and Sheikh Mansour came. They won the FA Cup, and reached the Champions League. The last time they won a cup was... umm... and the last time they finished 2nd was NEVER. Never. So it deserved a celebration. Then out goes wright-phillips. And out goes some other good loyal and young city players. In comes the first signing; Kun Aguero, 35 million. After that, comes the problems with Arsenal. Three clubs battled it out for young star Samir Nasri. Chelsea, United, and City. Chelsea gave up on him in the middle, so it was United and City. The young Arsenal maestro was about to join United,until City’s monster bid took over. IT was all over. Samir Nasri, number 19, City winger. Then came Clichy. So footy came again, in the community shield, FA Cup winners vs. Barclays Premier League winners. City vs United. Lescott opened t ...

Love how Man City fans lay into Mark Hughes, they must not remember the days of Brian Horton, Stuart Pearce and Frank Clark like I do.
Mark Hughes uncertain whether or not to keep Joey Barton as the QPR midfielder was handed a 12 match ban for his antics vs Man City
When Mancini joined Man City he joined a club in anarchy. Robinho, Bellamy, Adebayor all thought that they were in charge and could train or play whenever they chose. Mancini got rid of Robinho after a month. Bellamy followed. Then Adebayor. Each decision was massive- as each was a world class forward and each had a huge fan base. He then cleared out Given - supposedly Britains best goalkeeper, Bridge- an England left back, Santa Cruz- a Mark Hughes big buy and others followed. He dropped Carlos Tevez and put him on the bench for so long until the player went home- then refused his return until the player apologised. All these things he did in order to get a team of players who would play 100% and to his instructions. No one but Mancini would have done this. Result? An FA Cup, Champions League guaranteed and a Premiership win. City's best ever manager.Mancini. Read more:
“In the past, I have signed Vincent Kompany (at Man City), Christopher Samba (at Blackburn) and Mousa Dembele (at Fulham),” Mark Hughes
Mark Hughes looking to move anothr captain on. At Blackburn, it was Andy Todd.At Man City, Richard Dunne. Now at QPR, Barton.
Man City end the most parodoxical and dramatic end to the most end of the pier football season, since 1994. Man City are crowned champions of the Premier but only after a `roller -coaster' match that saw the sending-off of the QPR capt.Joey Barton.Then QPR lead 1-2 until- the extra time 6 minutes- when Man.City score twice including the winner from Sergio Aquera the Argentine ,in the final minute of time plus extra time. The parodox being that even at the death of this match QPR escape relegation, as Bolton Wanderers,can only draw 2-2 with Stoke City by courtesey of a second half penalty from John Walters. Some of the punitry from R5 Sport: 1.Mancini is now throwing the kitchen sink,sofa and everything in the back of the sofa,at QPR. 2.For QPR it is like that QPR are facing the Alamo. 3.Mark Hughes is a warrior, with whom you would trust your wife with. 4.All Joe Hart has had to do in the second half is to pick the ball out of his net ( then his team scores twice in last 6 minutes). 5.Where has this perfo ...
A little ironic that Roberto Mancini & Man City are set to celebrate the title as his predecessor Mark Hughes & QPR could be relegated.
QPR, do you have what it takes to beat Man City? Can you repeat what SAF did on 11 May 1983, Aberdeen beat Real Madrid to win the European Cup Winners' Cup. Mark Hughes you have a huge task mate! GO QPR!
Mark Hughes to get a wooping One Million pounds, yes one million if he beats Man City tumoro. i hear Diva and n'anga, Shedza u were part of the fundraising team in Zimbabwe to mek sure the bonus is ready for Super Sunday. hamunyare here varume title yaenda zvakadaro nemiriyoni yenyu iyoyo.
Mark Hughes is in line for a £1m bonus if he keeps QPR in the Barclays Premier League on Sunday with a result that could also stop his former club Man City winning the title.
It's not over till it's over... Man City vs Tony Fernandez's Queens Park Rangers! A few sub-plots : Champions elect vs Potential relegated team; Mark Hughes vs Sheikh Mansour; Barton vs Mancini; Anton helping the big brother?...hmmm, it's gonna be a Super Sunday!
Manchester United legend Teddy Sheringham has warned Manchester City the title is not yet decided.Sheringham feels QPR are capable of upsetting City on Sunday. and you ? do you still believe it ? “Who knows. QPR need to get a result to make sure that they are safe. Bolton could quite easily go to Stoke and win and overtake QPR, so they have to have the mindset to go to Man City and try to get a draw. “Mark Hughes is the manager and he won’t want to see Man City lift the title in front of his very own eyes. He’ll be fighting very hard for QPR to get a result so we’ll keep our fingers crossed that there might be one more little twist in the tale.” - Sheringham
Djibril Cisse believes it would be a sweet moment for former Man City boss Mark Hughes if QPR can get a good result at the Etihad Stadium.
Man City's players will receive reportedly each a £250,000 bonus if they win the league on sunday. Djibril Cisse is to deny Man City's three points on Sunday to give manager Mark Hughes "sweet revenge" over the club that sacked him in 2009 Can QPR spoil the party for Man City on sunday?
Only next Sunday left to decide EPL Title: Man City vs QPR, Sunderland vs Man United. We had hope for Newcastle to do us a favor but it did not happen. Next should be QPR who is fighting to stay in Premium league for one more season. I think it is a good show down with ex-Man City Mgr, Mark Hughes taking revenge on Roberto Mancini who replace him. C'mon Hughes, it is time to show that you still have United in your heart as like your prime playing years back then with us.
Interesting thought,can Mark Hughes and Joey Barton ,take the ultimate revenge on Man City next weekend.poetic justice at its best.?
If we stay up at Man City, will Mark Hughes do a David Pleat like skip across the pitch?
Matt Busby, Steve Coppell and Mark Hughes. Honorable mention to Brian Kidd who played Man Utd and is *** Man at Man City
