22nd October 2016 KC Stadium: The Tigers finally got some shots on target after allowing Stoke to take all the initiative early on. However even if those two shots had netted the longed for win would not have happened.

Phelan continues to dabble with team selection and seems incapable of putting that season opening combination into battle.

His team have conceded 19 goals in the last five EPL games. A staggering statistic to follow such a bright start.

We dropped into the relegation zone with this game, eight league games since we momentarily topped the league.

Both goals from Shaqiri were spectacular and that is the only sympathy I can muster for Phelan and his unhappy band.

Phelan’s men visit Bristol City in the fourth round of the EFL Cup on Tuesday and then travel to Watford on Saturday. Some players need to stand up and believe they can stay in this league.

Oh, and the advertising board lyrics fiasco is just another embarrassment heaped on the club and supporters by pathetic owners. Will it ever end?

10th September 2016 Saturday Turf Moor: City came very close to losing this, but a Snodgrass special free kick rescued the Tigers and gave them a precious point in the 95′.

The Clarets have been something of a bogey team to the KC outfit over the years and although the Tigers looked the better team at times it was the home side who went ahead after 72′ from Belgian Steven Defour their new midfield signing from Anderlecht, a stunning 25 yarder.

Solid displays from Snodgrass and Davies. Snoddy is a shining light and look too player for the Tigers and Curtis Davies is surely in the the best form of his life.

That’s 7 points from a possible 12, who would have dreamed of that!

The Mike Phelan Manager thing is now getting embarrassing for the club, Phelan, and all of us watching our dawdling, lost in the wilderness owners. They’ve already pissed off one great Manager this season, to do it twice requires Allam’s at their worst.

Mike Phelan:

“I’ve made it pretty clear I want to be in charge of this group of players.

I think the players have made it quite clear too,” he said. “At one point I thought we were playing really well, we might win the game and then it’s over to negotiations again…then at 1-0 down you think maybe not, maybe another week. “But I’m sure things will get resolved.

They probably will do, one way or another. “We haven’t fallen out or done anything drastic, we’re taking it day by day and hopefully another week doesn’t go by without it being resolved.”

“We suffered in the last minute in the last game (letting in a late goal against Manchester United).

“Credit to us as we kept going. The players did what we asked of them today.”
