I think this is highly unlikely. He is £5m Championship quality player. Im not sure why we have bought him, I can only assume as back-up. He may make the bench and perhaps the best thing he can hope for is a string of injuries.

Hahaha

Still. He bossed it Derby.

I am firmly in the "good signing" camp. He's very much a ward-prowse type player from what I gather, and I think we definitely could do with one of those. I also think given the relative ages of most of the rest of our midfield, he'll be a regular starter before too long. Maybe even as soon as he is match fit. The consensus outside of these forums is that he certainly is premier league quality.

Good solid signing , can't really see what the issue is. He is 26 years old so will be at his peak at Palace, for his age he has a huge amount of experience 200 games at the top of the championship and 80 in the premier league.
We have made some great signing this summer and the future looks bright maybe this isn't as exciting as Olisse, Guehi or Andersen but he is good addition.

Smashing signing and a lot of people are going to be surprised how good he is. He is a better player than Jairo, Kouyate and Luka.

Agree, we have basically signed a younger version of Macca. No not an exciting signing, but a really useful player, for really cheap. I'm really not sure what planet all the haters are on.

How do you think the team would look with Hughes? And can you see Palace pushing for the top 10 with this side?

I think 4-3-3 (Guaita, Mitchell, Guehi, Andersen, Ward, Gallagher, Hughes, Mcarthur, Zaha, Benteke, Olise)


If Palace did buy a new striker like (Edouard, Nketiah or someone else) then they would start ahead of Benteke most likely.

Edited by Zaha127 (29 Aug 2021 4.50pm)

Who has said that we are pushing for the top 10? I have read that the project is about changing the style of play, having a younger squad and key to it all, a lower wage bill. Obviously we all hope that it will lead to better league performance but I donít think thatís a primary aim. Clubs that have focussed solely on league position in the past have usually got into financial difficulties and been relegated pretty quickly. Steve Parish is smart enough to know that we must avoid that.

Hughes is an excellent signing and I hope he impresses enough in training to earn a start against Spurs.

Have him on the left in front of young Mitchell where he can also support him.

Probably because we bought him from Watford, good solid prem midfielder, who will improve us in that area.

Watford fans thought he was going to be there next captain, rarely gives the ball away, good in tight areas, can pass the ball forward. Good signing.

Looks like Nketiah next.

Seen the shirt photo. Quick look, thought who's that old man with a palace shirt on? Looks about 73.

I will judge him on his play and give him time to bed.

I think there may come a day when this is seen as the "steal of the window". I have yet to speak to a Watford supporter who isn't gutted that he left. Hughes is the sort of bread and butter, unspectacular "glue" player that really good clubs rely on; the sort who doesn't get the headlines and you only notice when he's not there. But then, boy do you notice him. Think Martin Hinshelwood if you're a long-term Palace fan.

As for Sissoko, I'd much rather have Hughes personally. Sissoko had a ten-minute spectacular period before signing for Spurs for a huge wedge and has done relatively little since to live up to the fee. He's the sort who's absolutely dominant when motivated and could be world-class if he had a mindset like Ronaldo but he doesn't and he isn't. He's motivated for a month or two once every couple of years. With Hughes, you get 80% of Sissoko's ability 100% of the time. With Sissoko, you get 60% of Sissoko's ability 40% of the time. The only place Sissoko is better than Hughes is on paper.
