Carl McHugh: One more year at Valley Parade

The 20-year-old only arrived at Valley Parade last summer following a successful trial but proved to be a valuable member of manager Phil Parkinson's side during his debut campaign.

McHugh made 28 appearances in total including six Capital One Cup starts as he helped the Bantams reach a memorable Wembley final, even getting his name on the scoresheet in a dramatic 3-1 semi-final first leg victory over Aston Villa.

McHugh's efforts for Bradford last term saw him recognised at Under-21 level for the Republic of Ireland.

He will now look to establish himself as a regular starter in Parkinson's XI as the Bantams aim to survive in League One following May's play-off success.

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
