Mark Hughes loves to talk about his sideboard
It has been so long since Manchester City won any silverware that the club seemingly no longer has a trophy cabinet, let alone a trophy room. That is if manager Mark Hughes’ comments are anything to go by.
Sparky appears to be obsessed with picking up a trophy to put on his sideboard. In fact, he can’t stop talking about his favourite piece of furniture. See the evidence after the jump.
“For instance, to win the Carling Cup would be great for us. I can remember what winning that meant to United three years ago. They beat Wigan in the final and it was the first thing they had won for a couple of years. It’s about putting silverware on the sideboard.”
“Over the years the club have struggled to put silverware on the sideboard. It would be a great achievement if we could do it this year.”
“We are very mindful the expectations have been raised but before the start of the season we wanted to win something and we are at the early stages of a competition that in the past has allowed clubs other than the top four to get some silverware on the sideboard.”
Can’t you just get a vase in the meantime, Sparky?
