PODCAST; TWTWT Podcast 73

Fancy listening to four ageing men of dubious hairstyles and personal hygiene issues rabbit on about how dreadful life as a City fan is?

You do? Excellent. Your boots can take a thorough filling right here. We wail about the defeat at Tottenham, whinge about the likely relegation this coming weekend and, just in case that isn’t morbid enough for you, we talk about The Worst City Manager In Our Lifetimes too.

    Great podcast as always, one 2@ of a city player a few months ago said ” there are 10 teams that could be relegated but Hull City aren’t one of them” could some one ask him what he thinks now.

    Sunderland battered again. They’re staying up because they have a Premier League keeper and we don’t. All City fans knew this and spoke of it 12 months ago but Bruce failed to act. In Bruce we trust but this has cost us!. #Stillbelieve

    Worst City Managers of my lifetime.
    1. Terry Dolan – the anti Christ of a manager. Almost succeeded in relegating us out of the football league. Achieved immortality with “hoof Terry Dolan”. Roundly booed and jeered each week. Immunity from the sack thanks to his partner in crime, the dour Martin Fish. Fish Out / Dolan Out. This pair brought austerity to Hull City in boom time Britain.
    2. Iain Dowie – looks like the Pub Landlord and managed like him. Short career but totally clueless. Sullied our club with his idiotic press conferences. Brilliantly managed to lose 1v4 at home to a Burnley side whose manager had lost the dressing room.
    3.Nigel Pearson – his track record wasn’t bad, however his style of football was dire. So bad in fact that I turned up 40 minutes late for one match because I couldn’t be arsed to watch this rubbish. Boring boring Nigel.

    There’s a reason why Pearson’s football was dire to begin with, he’d inherited Zayatte and Gardner from Phil Brown as first choice centre backs, and after a 4-0 dry bumming at Millwall he realised the priority was to shore up the defence or face a second consecutive relegation. So he set about making us defensively sound.

    Then he worked on giving the midfield some bite, and then he started bringing in strikers. He laid a strong foundation, then he built upon it. Perhaps you’d have preferred a succession of heavy losses at the start of his reign to ‘dire to watch’ football that put an emphasis on not getting beat first before he could work on winning.

    Les – Zayette was a liability at the end but was okay to begin with. Gardner was a good player but always crocked. Take your point but the football was Zero for entertainment. He’s had the last laugh this season but would anyone want boring, boring Nigel back?
    Who would you replace him with?

    After the way the club fell to its knees in all senses in 2010, entertaining football was the least of my worries. I was just grateful we had a manager capable of returning some soundness and decency to our club.
