Hull City 2 Stoke 0: Rick's Match Report
I hate playing Stoke. I’ve only seen us beat them once since 1992. There was another very memorable win in the league but given I didn’t go and missed Myhill’s brilliance that day, it doesn’t count. After a quiet end to the transfer window and a disappointi...

Hull City: Nigel Adkins Anniversary ... Bring a board game
It has been a year (and four days) since Nigel Adkins
took charge of Hull City for the first time in the wake of Leonid Slutsky’s

Hull City 1 Aston Villa 3: Same mistakes, different season
Was it nice to be back at the KCOM Stadium for one of the warmest nights of football I've ever seen in this country? To welcome Aston Villa to our 2/3 empty mausoleum? Eh, no. Villa have had a torrid few months since their play-off final loss but already ha...

Chadwick Stadium to face North Ferriby United for the Billy Bly trophy after all
– for most of pre-season it didn’t appear that it would happen. The game against Ferriby used to be the curtain raiser

The Joy of Six! Hull City's summer signings so far..
It's pleasing that Hull City have moved to make six signings so far. Decisive action was needed after so many departures in the summer and this is as active as we dared hope we'd be.  I'm not sure we've signed six players who'll start games but they have pr...
