Sheffield United 4 Hull City 1

So, imagine this for a minute. One day you get a call from Kim Jong Un’s office, informing you that the Chairman of the Workers’ Party of Korea is to honour you with his presence at dinner chez vous. Aware that nothing is too good for the great socialist leaders of our time even though …

Hull City 1 Middlesbrough 3

Middlesbrough at home for the second time in 2017. A little over half a year ago, City tonked Middlesbrough 4-2 in the Premier League, our second Premier League win in 5 days, taking us out of the relegation zone and setting us up nicely for what would turn out to be a narrow defeat in …

Hull City 2 Nottingham Forest 3

This report won’t be long, as this match doesn’t deserve anything more than a cursory recollection of the simple facts. Slutsky recalled Meyler (for Stewart) and Campbell (for Dicko) from last week’s Oakwell smash & grab, In front of 15,780 (yeah, right) and after a justified minute’s applause for City legend Les Mutrie the Tigers …

Norwich City 1 Hull City 1

It’s a little over seven years since that cathartic day when we won at Carrow Road to record a first away victory after thirty or more futile journeys. We haven’t won there since but that is largely down to both teams yo-yoing between the top two leagues. On a sunny Norfolk Saturday we travelled more …

Hull City 6 Birmingham City 1

Hull City 6 Birmingham City 1 Hull City six. But it would be no less apt to have written “Hull City sex”. For this at times was as close to the genuine article as you could get: it was proper pulse-accelerating, breath-shortening, cheek-flushing, pupil-dilating (that’s enough: Listmeister) stuff. Granted, it wasn’t the finished article and …

Reading 1 Hull City 1

Reading 1 City 1 To the Madejski, dull and unimaginative, the most colourless of the stadiums newly built round the country these last twenty years. Outside they sit in the September sunshine on friendly wooden benches, laughing and joking, shoving down burgers on the concourse, gulping chemical lager, tasteless and bland as the out of …

Hull City 1 Sunderland 1

If ever you want to know what makes a touchline different from a goal line, or what materials football pitches have to be made of, then read Law 1 of the rules of association football. It’s not racy, nor is it unputdownable, and there are nopictures, but it’s handy. Especially if you’ve just watched a …

Fulham 2 Hull City 1

Fulham in the Autumn. It doesn’t quite have the same ring to it as Paris in the Spring, but it’s as pleasurable an away football experience as you’re likely to get on the face of it. Except Hull City don’t do pleasurable away experiences any more. I’m not that sure we still do pleasure full …
