One87OneNotts RoyalOne87One Hughes played with a lot of heart and would run all day, but was bang bang average. He was a modern day Karacan.
Karacan was a brilliant player - energetic, great tackler, scored a few. I remember him saying on a podcast that Adkins told him we would’ve gone up in 13/14 if he’d stayed injury-free. He started the season really well & would’ve been better than Guthrie. I’m stunned Jem’s been mentioned in this thread at all!
Jay Tabb from that era was far worse - an embarrassment when we were in the Prem. Legs of sand I called him, as he played alongside Legs of Wood
You sure? Where's he now...? He had third division written all over him. A competent back up at this level only. Now at the level he's better equipped at.
I know football is all about opinions but this is another level.
Karacan was a key part of our promotion but then spent three years out injured. Those should have been the peak years of his career but he lost them. It’s no surprise that he’s not as good any more but we wouldn’t have gone up that year with a Third Division player in our midfield.
