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.”

27th August 2016 KC Stadium Saturday: The team whose fans can chant “we don’t need no players” almost pulled it off this afternoon by taking the game to the wire in denying the money bags, bloated squad of Mourinho what they wanted….a bloody goal.

The Red Devils got their goal in the 92′ but it was the home grown teenage football genius Marcus Radford  who got it for them not the expensive pony-tailed genius brought in by Jose Mourinho.

Curtis Davies…….Davies what a player he is; a man with the heart of a lion who just won’t give up. Battered and bruised at the heart of the Tigers defence he shut down Ibrahimovic time and time again.

But all the Tigers players were heroes today, not one let us down. Robert Snodgrass came very close to scoring a a couple of occasions and it wasn’t all one way traffic.

20th August 2016 Saturday Liberty Stadium: City are making a difficult season look easy and the pundits are all over the place in what to say and write. Two wins from two games  = 3rd place in the EPL below the Manchester clubs on goal difference.

The Tigers were well worth this win with goals from Maloney 79′  nudging in from a deflected corner (on for Diomande 73′)  and Hernandez 93′ after an assist by Maloney. Hernandez seemingly wants away from our club…..he may have a change of heart.

Another good stint from Robert Snodgrass who is repaying the club for the loss of his services after joining us. But to be honest all this group had good games.

City are putting away chances when they really matter. Although they had a lot of defending to do, still managed to find time and opportunity to create chance after chance.

Possession at 43% isn’t bad for a Hull City away game in the EPL.

It’s likely that Exeter beckons for a few of the young faces on the Hull City bench this afternoon.

Once again Mike Phelan has done a great job…..what is Ehab waiting for?

Mike Phelan post match:

“We still are short on numbers and have to be realistic. It was a tremendous performance and the character of the group has been brilliant from day one.

“The difficulty to come here was to see if we could go after them or contain them. The players stuck to their task and we created more chances than them.”
