Hughes Gets The Boot (At Last)

After so many false calls ...
... Mark Hughes has been sacked as manager of QPR after failing to win any of their opening 12 Premier League fixtures this season.
Despite the dreaded "votes of confidence from the QPR board" - last weekend''s 3-1 home defeat to fellow strugglers Southampton was the final straw.
QPR statement: "Queens Park Rangers Football Club has today (Friday) terminated the contract of manager Mark Hughes with immediate effect.
"This decision has been taken after careful consideration by the Board of Directors, following numerous meetings over the last few days.
"The Board of Directors wish to thank Mark for his commitment, hard work and dedication in his 10 months in charge. Mark has shown integrity and professionalism throughout his time here, but ultimately the circumstances we find ourselves in have left the Board of Directors with very little choice but to make a change."
