Bruce Sacked Over Recent Dispute Of The Name Change
We've been getting reports from the KC Stadium that Steve Bruce has been sacked after dispute over Hull City's name change to Hull Tigers.
In this debate over the name change, the supporters of the club took a vote and just over 3100 said yes and just under 3100 said no. In a recent press conference Asem Allam said "the supporters that didn't vote were fully in support of the name change". Obviously, Steve Bruce didn't believe this and that led to the whole dispute.
We have thought up some favorites for the job:
Malky Mackay 1/2
Gianfranco Zola 1/3
Owen Coyle 1/4
Paul Scholes 1/8
Good luck!
Good luck, hopefully stoke get relegated (From an Arsenal fan) :p
Thanks for all the good lucks. I also just want to say #saynotohulltigers
City Hire Mackay
Hull City have confirmed the appointment of Malky Mackay after 2 weeks of having no manager. Malky Mackay said in his first Hull press conference that he believed he could keep the Tigers up; he then added "it would be no easy task". When asked about the quality of the squad, he then said "the quality of the squad is great". We've got great quality and I thoroughly believe we have the quality to stay in the division".
"Pre-season predictions have said that Hull are predicted to finish 18th. Although, if the Tigers show their full quality they can definitely stay in the division", Hull favorite Dean Windass says.
For now however we'll have to see how they perform in pre-season to make any quick judgement of their survival chances.
Good Pre-Season For The Tigers
In the pre-season, the Tigers have only lost 1 of 5. Here are the results.
St Johnstone 3-2 Hull City
Ballymena United 1-4 Hull City
Portadown 1-3 Hull City
Hull City 2-1 Mainz
Winterton 0-5 Hull City
North Ferriby 3-4 Hull City

Capital One Cup fixture: Doncaster vs Hull
Man City 3-1 Hull City Post-Match Interview
Geoff Shreeves: "That first goal for Man City must've really made you frustrated?"
Malky: "Yeah, it was a miscommunication between Allan McGreggor and James Chester."
Geoff: "However, your second half performance must've given you a glimmer of hope after you started to attack very well?"
Malky: "Umm, yeah after we got used to the way they were playing we started attacking much better rather than being stuck defending."
Geoff: "Okay Malky, I'm going to see what Manuel Pelliguini though of their perfomance."
Good luck man !

Mackay Doesn't Enjoy Best of Starts
The start of Malky Mackay's Tigers career isn't the best he's ever had. With 2 wins in 7 matches it's been a tough start. However, they have managed to score in 6 out of 7 matches so scoring isn't the main problem. The problem is that their defence isn't up to scratch since they haven't had a clean sheet since pre-season.
However, Malky Mackay said in a recent press conference that they are trying to tighten up at the back, and it would only be a matter of time untill their first clean sheet.
October Results
Norwich 1-3 Hull City- Scorers: Shane Long(19,49) and Eduardo(30)
Hull City 4-1 Chelsea- Chelsea's Scorer Willian(22). Hull Scorers: Robbie Brady(46,67) Ahmed Elmohamady(50) Shane Long(90) (For this game I have to admit Chelsea were not at their best and this result proves that. I expected a heavy loss like the Crystal Palace one but that's just football.)
Hull City 1-1 Tottenham Hotspur- Scorers: Sone Aluko(84)
Mackay Improves To Make An Unbeaten Month
Malky Mackay has finally found his footing in the Premier League and Hull now sit in 8th place. They have also had some truly sublime results such as 4-1 win against Chelsea.
Great result against Chelsea! You got battered by Everton, but they're amazing so that's understandable. :P
Shut up, Deji, they suck ;). Some great football results last month, keep it up!

The Tigers Are Burning Bright
Right now the Tigers are flying high in the promised land and they look like there in good form as they haven't lost in 6 games.
