elephant-man-free6THERE’S no doubt that Phil Browny-orangecolour did a terrific job at Hull City. Unfortunately, that job ended about a year ago. Since then he’s done a pretty shit cowboy job, that’s involved him rubbing his chin and saying ‘dear oh dear, which joker put this mob together? No wonder they keep losing love. ‘ere get us a cup of tea cheers darling.’
Well last week’s last-gasp defeat to Arsenal was the final straw for Phil, and he’s back on the job trail. Like flushing away a strangely rust-coloured large turd, however, we’re sure that’s not the last we’ll see
of him.So the big question after that was – who do Hull bring in? Who’s out there who can stop the rot, keep the club safe in nine games and earn themselves a tidy $1million bonus in the process. The inspirational
Mark Hughes perhaps? Old hand and steady head Terry Venables? Alan ‘proven Premier League manager’ Curbishley?
Well all their names were touted, but instead Tigers chairman Adam Pearson plumped for Iain Dowie – a man so ugly his face practically screams Championship football.
So that’s Portsmouth and Hull down then. And with Brian Laws at Burnley, that’s this year’s relegation issue sorted in record time.
