Manchester City may have caused a stir among the Top 4 of English football with maximum points from their opening four games, but manager Mark Hughes caused a stir of his own today, as he announced he had decided to give himself a 1000% pay rise!

City have gained maximum points from their four games against Blackburn, Wolves, Portsmouth and Arsenal - apart from the latter, not exactly world-beating sides - but Hughes claims he has done enough to warrant the tenfold increase which will take his enormous salary past the £10million-a-year mark.

City's rich Arab owners have sanctioned the increase, saying that they couldn't care less how much he pays himself.

Sky Blues fans have been quick to voice their support for the Welshman. One, John Dolt, said:

"He's worth every penny. Or is that 'a penny'?"

Asked how long he had supported City, Dolt replied:

"Since just before I wuz born. City play in blue, dote thee?"
