Post your comment about Aaron Hughes
 It's a great opportunity for him. It's not often you get the chance to go and play for one of the top four teams in the country, especially when you're down to the last few years of your career. You can understand why Arsenal want to take him and why it's important for him. If he went we'd miss him, but we wish him well. It's a fantastic opportunity.

 Mark has been one of the top three keepers in the league for the last two years. He's been very important to us. Some of his saves kept us in games. Sometimes if you have a successful season it's harder afterwards and you almost find yourselves hanging onto your players rather than trying to build on your success.
