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.”

9th January 2016 KC Stadium – The Tigers progressed to the 4th round of the FA Cup via a sound home win over Brighton.

Robert Snodgrass slotted in a penalty in the 41′ following a foul on Harry Maguire by the Seagulls Lewis Dunk.

Stats cannot tell everything about a game but this time they come near. City managed 18 shots to Brighton’s two. OK only 7 were on target but the visitors had none on target. Although they managed to hit the crossbar in the dying minutes of the game.

As expected both teams rested players and it was the usual turn for Jakupovic to get between the sticks and Taylor, Huddlestone, Hayden, Diomande and Aluko all got starts. Plus Luer had to replace the injured Diomande after 51′.

Brighton have not won in the last 7 games and seem to be struggling.

Post match Steve Bruce said

“We’ve seen Snoddy produce a performance to show us what we’ve missed. A big pat on the back to him and I have to say to my medical staff. It’s been one of these complicated injuries. He has been terrific.”

“I’ve said repeatedly one of the reasons why we are not in the big league is the loss of our big players.”

Hull City: Eldin Jakupovic, Moses Odubajo, Ryan Taylor, Curtis Davies, Tom Huddlestone, Robert Snodgrass, Harry Maguire, Isaac Hayden, Sone Aluko (Sam Clucas 85), Adama Diomande (Greg Luer 51), Andrew Robertson. Bench Unused: Allan McGregor, David Meyler, Abel Hernandez, Mohamed Diamé, Ahmed Elmohamady.
Brighton: Niki Maenpaa, Lewis Dunk, Andrew Crofts, Inigo Calderon (Kazenga Lualua 63), Connor Goldson, Elvis Manu (Tomer Hemed 76), Danny Holla (Sam Baldock 57), Rohan Ince, Adam Chicksen, Richie Towell, Liam Ridgewell. Bench Unused: Casper Ankergren, James Murphy, Bobby Zamora, Robert Hunt.
