A great read it has to be said.
Former Blues midfielder recently gave an interview with Birmingham Live, in which he detailed plenty of stories from his time at St Andrew’s, from the day he joined right up until the day he left.
He also included some great insight into some of the most famous moments during his time at the club, such as the 2002 Playoff Final against Norwich.
Perhaps the most fascinating tale though surrounds the way he left the club and the contract negotiations that were going on at the time, and how he could possibly have come back to the club after his move to Charlton at the end of the 2003/04 season.
Were you sad when Hughes left the Blues?
The interview gave fans the opportunity to talk about his time at the club, and how much they appreciated his effort when he was in B9.
Gutted when you left, couldn't believe the club didn't renew your deal

My favourite player growing up! So annoying reading that, he could have easily played higher than blues aswell

Yet another lack of class shown by owners of the club at that time. Another clue as to why we couldn't sustain premier League football over a longer period; souless in the boardroom which filtered down to the manager. Enjoyed watching you in a Blues shirt @yozzer10, class act.

Fantastic player. Class act, never let us down. KRO Hughsey

I loved him playing at Blues, one of the most skillful players, and he knew how to place a pass. Gutted when he left.

That’s a great read. Sad to hear he was chucked under the bus. Definitely unfinished business at blues.

I’d never do the article justice if I were to try and sum it up, so I implore you to read it if you haven’t already, it’s a very compelling interview.
