Things We Think We Think #38

1. Cameron Stewart’s call into the England under 21 squad is nothing short of a brilliant achievement. There is oodles of talent available at that level, and for the Tigers winger to make it so soon into his first-team career, and with one bad injury already interrupting those early days of senior football, is something […]

Things We Think We Think #37

1. Tuesday’s point at Birmingham was a very useful one, even if it means City are going to spend a period outside the top six. We’d have taken a draw before kick-off. 2. It was encouraging that this didn’t represent the limit of City’s ambitions, however. Amid the formidable ball retention and impenetrable defence we’ve […]

Things We Think We Think #36

1. What a welcome relief to get all three points against Bristol City without too much strife and in some degree of comfort. The early 2-0 margin wasn’t insurmountable — think about how Burnley responded to an identical deficit at the Circle earlier this season — but nonetheless City were clever enough and professional enough […]

OPINION: Why safe standing should be introduced at City

On Saturday, the Football Supporters’ Federation are bringing their Safe Standing roadshow to Hull. We support their efforts to reintroduce the option to stand at professional football in this country, and hope it will one day become an option for City fans at the Circle. It comes down to choice, and the freedom to choose […]

Things We Think We Think #35

1. Most City fans travelling from Hull were well south of Leicester when the Portsmouth match was postponed. To be allowed to travel more than halfway for a game that had no prospect of being played is a complete disgrace. 2. Quite who’s culpable is presently unclear. The rumours about Portsmouth not even troubling to […]

Things We Think We Think #34

1. The defeat against Crawley Town was absolutely abject — not the result itself, embarrassing though it was, but the nature of it. One part poor team selection, three parts woeful application. That’s what is difficult to take. 2. Crawley have drawn Stoke City at home in the next round. You’d fancy City at home […]

Things We Think We Think #33

1. Another week, another win. Frankly, we didn’t deserve it, but we didn’t deserve that run over Christmas. These things really do even themselves up. 2. Was Aaron Mclean offside? Yes. Was he interfering with play? Well, he got to within a yard of the ball, so yes. Was the linesman right not to flag? […]

Things We Think We Think #32

1. The victory over Peterborough won’t live long in the memory, but there were still positive signs to take from it. Robert Koren’s goal was yet another delightful strike, and the way City ruthlessly closed the game out by starving an eager but limited side of possession was a sign of maturity from a youthful […]
