Mark Hughes channels HP Lovecraft and Necronomicon or is he digging on the "foreignness" of Arsenal's squad. With Hughes one suspects the latter. Whatever it is, it does make for a very quotable quote.
“Certainly in the past, teams have put comments out leading into games in an effort to influence the refs. It’s a touch of the dark arts, I suppose.”
A case of the pot calling the kettle black or ummm... dark.
Anyways, its been a week of playing clubs who have had a testy time with Arsenal over the years, Chelsea, Blackburn, and this weekend it is Spurs. So look for more dung to be flung.
