Jake pins Sixer to the wall

Jake pins Sixer to the wall

Pete Sixsmith‘s boycott of expensive trips to London was maintained for the final game of the season, though he was able to follow proceedings from afar and supply a seven-word verdict. The game at Chelsea went to script despite Steven Fletcher’s rediscovery of his goalscoring touch, before Costa’s penalty equaliser in the first half and two Loic Remy strikes in the second. Fletch could have done better with his own subsequent chances. Not a bad display – we were far from overwhelmed – but logic prevailed. Whatever we think of Steve Bruce – and he fully merits what we think of him – it is more than a little sad to see Hull City, a decent club with decent fans, go down ..

    I got the right number of goals but in the wrong order lol so poor jeremy doesnt get his pot. I see the maggies finished just that little bit better than you lot

    • Drummer May 24, 2015 at 7:34 pm #

      Who cares ? Rather have the six easy points again , fantastic to see them sweat also. You going down to the smoke Monday? Hope you do it.

    While I don’t have a strong view either way about Hull having decent fans, there is no way they are a decent club. Please read the reports of what they have recently done to local clubs in their community and also imagine what it would be like to have your owner change the club name to gain money from the Far East, ignoring the feelings of the fans that now need to support them in the league below.
    Add in the fact that Mr Bruce and his mates in the media cannot now say that he was hounded out of Sunderland. We saw what was coming when he reached his 3rd season cluelessness and Hull didn’t. He spent £42m and still couldn’t but a goal.

    • John Mac May 25, 2015 at 2:37 pm #

      And how much did they charge away fans? I don’t know about other games but it was £50 for the Liverpool match. Even allowing for LFC’s own rip off prices that’s ridiculous

  3. KenG May 24, 2015 at 7:35 pm #

    Totally agree Dave. Hull were despicable each time we played them in the last two seasons, milking fouls and trying to get opponents ( Cattermole ) sent off. Sadly two of the worst culprits were our ex-players, Elmohamady and Meyler. Good riddance..

  4. Drummer May 24, 2015 at 7:39 pm #

    Looking forward to Bruce’s excuses now, who will he blame ? Bet its not himself !

  5. Jeremy May 25, 2015 at 2:17 am #

    Wonder if he get hounded out of Hull for being no good?

  6. Mike Sixsmith May 25, 2015 at 7:03 am #

    Perhaps someone might discover he has relatives from Grimsby.
    The problem with Bruce is that he is a short term manager, he does well for so long and then things start to go awry. Don’t be surprised to learn that he has left the club.

      Might turn up at ‘ the worlds biggest clerb ‘ yet . As if we could love them anymore !
