The Big Question

Three candidates named to nick Mark Hughes’ job

Hiddink – Manchester-bound?

Guus Hiddink 

Man City have proved pretty hard to beat this season, but a hunch suggests that the men in robes funding the whole thing were mainly after wins, not draws. After the mid-week Spurs humiliation, the whispers on the street are being drowned out by the faint chimes of a death knell in the background.

Is Mark Hughes on borrowed time?

According to today’s Telegraph, City chief exec Gary Cook has already been snooping around in the shadows left by Guus Hiddink. His agent said this:

“He (Cook) asked me if it would be worthwhile having a meeting to discuss the future and what might happen next summer. But I told him that Guus was contracted to Russia.”

A contract which may yet expire in the New Year. 

Also on the Man City radar are the ex-Inter Milan boss, Roberto Mancini, who is apparently keen to enjoy all the glitz and glamour of life in Manchester. Whilst The Daily Star have an inside “source”, who seems to think that a certain Frenchman is the one really getting those glorious white robes flapping:

“The one they really want is Wenger.” 

But what do YOU think? Should Man City scrap Hughes and go for someone a little more craggy-faced and experienced? Or should they be patient with the surprisingly soft-voiced Welshman?

Let us know with a vote and a comment.

    Hughes is the right man, christ it took ferguson years and years and he was spending much more money then the rest of the top division teams at that time, just like hughes!
    Sparky will be a great success at city , just give him time!
    In 3 years from now city will be one of the top clubs in the world, just be patient.

    Steal Wenger? Anybody who actually knows anything about football knows that is laughable.
