Hughes has also admitted city have failed with a joint bid of the average Scott Parker and the disruptive Craig Bellamy.
We made a double bid which was rejected and we haven't got back to the table on that one."Zola doesn't want to sell his 'best' players! Also Hughes doesn't think we have made a bid for Given and didn't elaborate on whether we would be doing so in the near future! So 8 days in, we have still only signed one player, which was before the Forest debacle. I think we will have to be more patient than 1st anticipated.
There is some worry about the Pompey game as they have a tinpot ground, and have had to bring in giant blowers to heat up their frozen pitch, hopefully with rising temperatures the pitch will be ready for sat.
