Hull City

Hull City 5-0 Southampton. Ear Wig Joe…

This is the best Tiger’s team of my lifetime so it annoys the pants off me when I hear on the phone-ins about, “not getting carried away”.


Absolute balderdash.


Without sounding like some sad old git, I have watched some absolute dire fare at Boothferry Park over the years, and I must have needed locking up for my own good when the first thing I did on arrival back in Hull full time at the back end of August 1999, was to turn up at the Box Office and purchase a Season Ticket for the West Stand. Row R seat 75. We finished 14th in the Third Division and Warren Joyce was sacked….


Therefore I am going to get jolly well carried away thank you very much.


Some perspective. In May 2003 we finished tenth in the bottom Division and suffered defeats to the likes of York City and Wrexham.


Southampton played Arsenal in the FA Cup Final and qualified for Europe.


Today we stuffed the Saints 5-0 and played superb football to boot. It was an absolute joy to watch as the confidence just flows through this team that believes and trusts themselves to beat anyone in this Division.


We can realistically dream of the Premiership and if it’s not this season, then why not next?


We have oodles of young and talented pros blended with experience and a well-balanced Management Staff who boast a top ranked Coach in Phil Brown, and an astute wily old fox in Brian Horton who has seen it all from the top of the Premiership to the lower reaches of the game.

Hull City: Myhill, Ricketts, Turner, Clement, Dawson, Garcia (Bridges 78), Ashbee, Marney, Pedersen (France 70), Campbell, Windass (Hughes 59).
Subs Not Used: Tyler, Walton.

Att: 16,829
