I KNOW WHAT I'M DOING !

In days gone by the South Americans were seen an an elite and expensive type that you’d find playing for a continental club, but these days because everybody is paying silly money for even the most mediocre performers…

… in the Premier League it is ‘der rigeur’ to have at least one Brazilian in your team.

I'm not scoring any more....Not everybody can go to The Apple Store though. Some of the sides are looking in the Argos catalogue or at Comet and the like.

And for Hull City – they’ll be at Cash Converters.

They thought at first that they’d found themselves a bargain when they go Geovanni on a free from Man City, but after 30 appearances this season he’s only bagged 8 and Hull have realised too late (sorry, no returns) that they’ve bought a lemon.

It is uncertain if it’s something up with the man himself, whether he has gone on strikers…err…strike. Or whether it is up to the tactics of the (increasingly loopy) Phil Brown.

But what is certain is that whilst other clubs are enjoying their Ferrero Rocher…Hull City know that they’ll never be able to afford that and will have to get used to having a Nestlé KitKat.

Personally I can’t understand why Phil Brown doesn’t just go back into the pantry and choose to use the bloke who got them into the Prem to keep them in the Prem. When it comes to big games like these and big performances are needed, why does he leave him on the shelf ?

I haven’t really looked to see what the current situation is with Dean Windass… Hang on I’ll google it… No it seems that “Loopy !” Brown has banished him from the club. Very stupid and very sad to read that.

To the music and with it being Hull you can assume that the celebrity musical act will be in the same…

Quo...?

But no ! Wait ! It isn’t !

I know it looks like the “local” Man U supporting musical act, but it’s not them.

It is in fact a Quo tribute band who call themselves StraightAs Quo and I have to say that they’ve got the look down pat. Take a quick glance and you could swear it was them.

And for their music I also have to say that they are pretty damn near to the real thing too.
– Don’t know how it came about or why but they recorded a single with the 2002/2003 Hull City team:

StraightaS Quo single cover » StraightAs Quo featuring the Hull City AFC 2002/2003 Squad – The Tigers, The Tigers

To the tune of ‘Rockin’ All Over The World’

Hull City Hull City The Tigers are back
Hull City Hull City The amber and black
Hull City Hull City The Tigers are back
Hull City Hull City The amber and black

In days gone by
We used to be Hull City lovers
We used to roar a lot
And so did twenty thousand others

Those days went by
And then we struggled for survival
But now were back
As we begin the great revival

Hull City Hull City The Tigers are back
Hull City Hull City The amber and black

We learnt to roar
Thats what the doldrum years have taught us
And so weve got
A loyal band of loud supporters

And we’ll be here
Whenever theres a game to win
And you will here
The Tiger fans get up and sing

Hull City Hull City The Tigers are back
Hull City Hull City The amber and black

Youll never catch that tiger
We’ll snatch the decider
Youll never catch that tiger
Were gonna surprise you

We’ll beat them here
We’ll beat them there and everywhere
Bad days have gone for good
Let all the doubt be made aware

Cos we’ll go on
Marching on as before
Yes we’ll go on
And you will hear the Boothferry roar

Hull City Hull City The Tigers are back
Hull City Hull City The amber and black

And we’ll be watching the Tigers
As they march to victory
We’ll go the ends of the earth
Just to follow the Hull City

We’ll paint the town amber
And yell it out in the street
We are Hull City
The City noone can beat

Youll never catch that tiger
We’ll snatch the decider
Youll never catch that tiger
Were gonna surprise you

Yes it is as low rent as the club…

If this relegation issue was to be decided by these songs then Hull would be doomed.

  1. I guess they were not so doomed after all. But thanks for your expertise.
