    How much did we get.....

    ...... for Hughes?

    In the past week I have seen figures as low as 2M and as high as 10M. I thought the club said 8M at the time.

    HKram seems to think 5M............

    Any ideas people?

    The Transfer Market website puts the fee at just over £8m
    and SoccerBase gives it as £8m.

    Stupid decision when players of his talent level go for double figures these days. One that Rowett was ok with apparently. That is why Im not sad to see him go!

    Now lets go and sell Thomas for peanuts. Thats what we do!

    Whilst agreeing with the sentiment of your first paragraph, we need to remember that Hughes missed 99% of the 15/16 season with his ACL injury. Didn't really perform in the 16/17 season, which is a common 1st season back consequence of such an injury. There were doubts about his being properly right for the start of the 17/18 season which seem to have been "proven" as he wasn't used much for quite a while by Watford and was eased in. Hit some form, scored two in two (or was it 2 in 3?) and then got injured.... I have always thought that we didn't get the huge fee we all think we should have simply because he wasn't right at the time. If he was right, we were right royally screwed. If he wasn't, then £8M is probably about right for a gamble.

    2nd paragraph. If reports of his going to WHU have any basis in fact, which I doubt based on the only source being some Gloucestershire local rag for both the original rumour and the more recent £1.2M story, is the fee quoted actually peanuts for a lad with 2 substitute appearances in the 1st team?

    1.2 rising to 5 or 6 with add ons would be a great deal although it would mean us losing a great prospect.
