How many times has either Frazer or Douglas been awful and Hughes come on and got all over a particular winger. Yes he gives free kicks away but he will also never let someone dance around him or routinely slice the ball into touch.
Huddersfield away last season. Just one example of Hughes at his worst. Regularly found touch when unpressurized, kept giving the ball away, was skinned repeatedly by their winger and eventually went off injured. I haven't got it in for the bloke, I just think he's rubbish.
Fair do's, I accept he's limited. I just think he has something to offer, particularly from the bench but I haven't been to every game so accept I may have missed some of his more cack performances.
Well RP, you seem to have it in a bit for Robinson who has tons more skill (and weight ) than Hughes and has proven it a fair few times. Hughes does have something to offer, his great energy and commitment for two, but in my mind we should be looking for more than that. He's an average utility man at best. Put it this way, I won't be bawling if he comes on as sub ever but I won't be giddy with expectation either. And to be fair to Robinson, he does need to prove himself and get properly fit but he has been that cliche of an 'impact' substitution a few times.
Not too bothered that you haven't seen him in every game but I can honestly tell you that I've seen Hughes at right-back and he has looked one of the dimmest players ever - I think it was P'boro where he and Robinson funnily enough, instead of deciding who would pick up their dangerous winger, BOTH left him unmarked. We won though
You know they're on about lots and lots of players being at risk of ending their careers early? Well I'll say this for Hughes - some players don't earn their crust but he is one that does his best and never stops working hard. An honest pro, but bottom line for me is, I don't think he's good enough, he's like Dill the Dog!
