He must get really cheesed off being who he is at times. It's like everything seems to revolve around him at Norwich ? it certainly has in recent weeks.
He even acknowledged that everything he says is usually made into headlines, and when his name didn't even make it onto the team-sheet for last Saturday's trip to Leicester, well, the stories were already being written, weren't they?
But sorry Hucks, that's just the way it is I'm afraid when you're the star turn!
No disrespect to Matty Pattison, Alex Pearce, Kieran Gibbs and Jamie Cureton who also made the starting XI, but naturally all the pre-match gossip before kick-off yesterday centred around Huckerby's return from exile, even though we'd known that was to be the case some 24 hours earlier after City boss Glenn Roeder had ? astutely ? indicated his choice of left-winger against Barnsley on Friday morning.
I tell you what though, with all this fuss it doesn't matter how many top-flight games he might have played, you can bet your bottom dollar that as kick-off time approached yesterday Huckerby would have felt more than the usual odd butterfly or two knowing that as soon as he walked out of the tunnel all eyes would be focused in his direction and expecting him to deliver.
As it turned out Huckerby didn't rip the opposition to shreds in the manner many might have been hoping for or expecting.
The determination was there alright, but aside from the occasional flash of Huckerby magic at the start of the game and then at the end, it wasn't a vintage display from him by any means.
Indeed, that could be applied to the Canaries' performance in general yesterday. Impressive in bursts, bags of energy and commitment as usual and a whole-hearted effort in general, but nothing to get too excited about in all fairness.
The fact Glenn Roeder was forced to field a considerably weakened team to what he would consider his first choice XI though, and that they were able to pick themselves up after their mauling at the Walkers Stadium and secure all three points off an opponent that had beaten Liverpool at Anfield in the FA Cup last week, is testament to all concerned.
The players deserve credit for their attitude and resolve to try to right the many wrongs at Leicester last week, and it was particularly pleasing in the first-half to see them being intent on keeping the ball on the floor and moving it about the pitch quickly.
By contrast, you could be critical and reason that City didn't keep the ball effectively enough in the second period.
And when a calm and collected approach was called for in order to snuff out any hopes of a late Barnsley equaliser, as the game drew to a close Norwich were also guilty of taking the easy option of just clearing their lines and pointlessly hoofing the ball downfield.
But a win's a win.
Individually there were a few impressive performances from players in yellow shirts on Saturday.
Lee Croft continued to demonstrate the positive and energetic form on the right flank that seems to have cemented his place in the starting line-up these days, while Jon Otsemobor delivered precisely the type of attacking contribution that the manager has asked of him.
But the start of the show for the Canaries was undoubtedly debutant Alex Pearce. He's had to be patient has Pearce and bide his time while all the other loan signings have been given their chance to impress.
But it was certainly worth the wait.
The centre-half produced an assured display at the heart of the Canaries' rearguard that belied his tender years, and he rightly received the sponsor's Man of the Match champagne as he left the field.
Almost ironic really, that when they stage was all set for the big crowd favourite to go out and perform, it was the new boy who went and stole the show!
