Hull City Search For A Hero

In a strange yet understandable move, Hull City Chairman Adam Pearson has removed Phil Brown from his position as manager at the struggling side. It strikes me as strange as Brown has been moved on after an impressive, if limited, performance against Arsenal on Saturday. Removal after the dismal showing […]

Bullard’s Resurgence Can Lift Hull City

Things are very rarely simple at the K.C. Stadium, not while Phil Brown is there. Back in January, he raised eyebrows when he paid £5 million for the effervescent Fulham midfielder Jimmy Bullard. Not that there is any doubting the quality that Bullard offers, but that a player who had […]

Two Wins In A Calendar Year Isn’t Mischief Making

Can Hull City Avoid Second Season Syndrome?

Looking at the predictions that are currently flooding the world of Premiership football, two teams are entrenched in a dogfight for who will finish bottom. No-one, but no-one thinks both Hull City or Burnley will stay up. One if not both of them, in the eyes of everyone think they’re […]

Not a Happy Guus While Rafa’s Going No Where,

I’m happy Guus is not as thrilled about Chelsea’s 1-0 win as I am. A bit of a side bar before I get into the news tonight. Chelsea are extremely lucky they are a goal to the good heading into their Champions League second leg. For starters, I don’t believe […]

Hull City To Go Down?

Can anyone remember the last time Hull City won a Premier League game? December 6th at home to Middlesbrough was the last time. Since then, they have been very much in freefall.  When Hull first arrived in the Premiership, they were tipped to go straight back down but decided to […]

Hull City’s U.S. Charm Offensive Will Pay Dividends

EPL Talk’s ex-pat and Anglophile readers familiar with the classic British sitcom Only Fools and Horses will likely remember the program’s 1985 Christmas special, “To Hull and Back,” in which Del Boy and Rodney unwittingly end up in the northern English city of Hull on their way to picking up […]

9 Reasons Why Hull City Is My New Favorite Team

Fiorentina’s Juan Vargas was the hero for the Peruvian national team as he set up Johan Fano’s equalizer in the last touch of the game on Tuesday against Argentina.   Vargas wreaked havoc all over the left side of the pitch against a poor Argentine side and would put the fate […]
