Hull are currently in 19th position in the league with 3 wins, 3 draws & 10 losses having shipped 35 goals (the most in the league) while scoring 14 (2nd lowest) and they have the worst goal difference with -21. They won their opening two games meaning they've only won one of the last 14, and they have only kept one clean sheet (Swansea in their 2nd game of the season).
On October 6th 1990 we beat them 7-1 at home in the old Second division (we got promoted that season while Hull got relegated.
Another win like that would be nice
Yesterday's win over Burnley has opened up a 4 point gap between us & relegation and a win this weekend could see us within striking distance of the top half of the table. Despite our disappointing start to the season we are still in with a shout of repeating last seasons 7th place. Hopefully we can keep everyone fit & get an established starting 11. We're still only about 40% of the way through the season.
I only saw the highlights from yesterdays game & they were pretty boring We're still not clicking at home & it might be another season until we do. As always our fans saw varying differences with some saying this player was shit while others say he was brilliant but so & so was shit. I heard Carroll shouldn't be near the starting 11 while on some sites he was Man of the Match.
I expect Bilic to put the same team out although I'd like to see us with two strikers against a team that leaks goals like Hull.
Kouyate Reid Ogbog
Antonio Lanzini Obiang Cresswell
But I doubt if Slaven will take any notice of my starting eleven
Hopefully we'll kick on & put two or three goals past Hull.
3-1 to the Hammers.
And I look forward to the completely different opinions after the game
