Ludicrously, the rules of FFP make it more 'economical' for us to run down his contract than to sell at a loss. Contracts signed before December 31 2010 (I think?) do not have to be included in the costs statement for FFP; however if he is sold at a loss then the difference between his purchase and selling prices have to go on the P&L. If our owners have made one mistake is not dispensing with the amateur Hughes as soon as they took over. The fact that they tried to give him a chance, however, is a testament to their integrity and should be applauded, even if it backfired in this instance.
