A massive season for Hull City looms ahead with the ambition of becoming a stable Premier League team and the chance to make their name in the Europa League. Could they live up to expectation or will they flop to relegation?

For some reason my computer is not allowing me to upload images. Have tried and tried and it doesn't work, sorry about this.
Hull City - The Perfect Pre-Season:
Hull City 1-2 Zenit
The 2013/14 Pre Season started with a tricky home game against Zenit St Petersburg which resulted in a defeat. Livermore scored an early 8 minute own goal before Tymoschuk made it 2-0 right on half time. Early in the second half Jelavic pulled one back with a 25 yard strike but it wasn't enough for The Tigers.

Hull City 3-0 NEC
A magnificent start to the game proved how dangerous Nikica Jelavic will be this season. Within the first minute he put Hull 1-0 with a tap in from inside the six yard box. Then, in the 3rd minute Jelavic made it 2-0 with another tap in. Long then completed the scoring in the 26 minute from a corner.

Clyde 0-4 Hull City
What was expected to be a comfortable victory proved correct as Hull pulled out a perfect display at Clyde. Yannick Sagbo scored a free kick in the 6th minute before Ahmed Elmohamady beat the Clyde left back to the ball and scored from an acute angle. He then doubled his tally in the 44th minute from just outside the 18 yard box as he cut in and curled it in to the top corner. Robert Snodgrass then scored from the penalty spot in the 65th minute. Later on, Snodgrass missed a penalty to double his tally.

Partick Thistle 1-3 Hull City
Halliday put Thistle 1-0 up in the 3rd minute when Curtis Davies gave the ball away with a silly pass as he looked for Angel Rangel (new signing) who was being marked. Long then made it 1-1 with a simple tap in before Sagbo made it 2 with a quality strike from the edge of the box. Brady then made it 3-1 when he curled it into the top corner from the left wing.

Roda JC 0-3 Hull City
83% of the ball proved that Hull were dominant against Roda JC. Ince put the Tigers in front with a drilled shot from 12 yards out. Elmohamady then carried on his great pre seaoson form when he scored a free kick from 20 yards out. He then scored again in the 57th minute when he beat the left back and place his shot in to the bottom corner.

Hulls first competitive game saw them win 3-0 away at AIK. Jelavic scored after 4 minutes when he pounced on a horrible pass back from the AIK centre back. Long then doubled Hulls lead from the penalty spot. Long then found space to curl a shot in from just outside the 18 yard box in the 44 minute.

Hull progressed through to the Euro Play Offs when they luckily beat AIK 1-0. AIK wasted 23 opportunities in the game. Hull then took 1 of there 3 chances in the 73rd minute through David Meyler.

August 2013 Review

Hull City 4-0 QPR
Well, this was the perfect start to the season and the result was slightly unbelievable. Hull we're dominating when Karl Henry was sent off for QPR. Then, in the 78th minute, Curtis Davies put Hull in to the lead before Aluko scored a cracking goal from the edge of the box to make it 2-0 in the 80th minute. Curtis Davies then made it 3-0 in the 85th minute before the rout was sealed in the 90th minute through Maynor Figueroa.

Mlada Boleslav 1-2 Hull City (EL PLAY OFF)
Jelavic opened his account when he put the Tigers in the lead after 9minutes. Then Boleslav scored an unexpected equaliser. Hull then regained there lead in the 32nd minute through a quality strike from Jake Livermore.

Aston Villa 2-4 Hull City
Wow!! That's one word to describe this game. Hull took the lead in the 19th minute through an Okore own goal. It wasn't long before Villa were level though as Kozak equalised with a cracking volley from 13 yards out. 4 minutes later, Hull were back in the lead through in form Jake Livermore as he smashed home a beautiful header from a Snodgrass corner. Long then (in the 40th minute) made it 3-1 when he scored a tap in as Guzan smashed his kick straight in to him for him to run in to score. In the 46th minute, Jelavic made it 4-1 and Hull were in dream land as Okore gave the ball away as they were passing it around the back, Jelavic then couldn't miss. After the goal, Villa dominated the rest of the game and Agbonlahor made it 4-2 in the 56th minute. Davies could not deal with his pace as he ran in on goal to slot home.

Hull City 2-1 Mlada Boleslav (EL PLAY OFF)
A poor display from Hull and a very lucky victory. Boleslav dominated from the first minute and it was no surprise to see them go one nil up after 12 minutes. Hull did not recover from this and were lucky to go into half time 1-0 down. Tomkinson then ripped through the Hull side at half time and it made little difference. Davies did however equalise from a corner in the 56th minute when Jelavic headed it and it rebounded everywhere before falling at the feet of Curtis Davies to pop home. Then, Hull got lucky as McGregor made a magnificent save from the penalty spot before Livermore ran up the other end to slide home. A lucky victory for Hull and with Manchester United being there next game they would have wanted a much better display.

Hull were drawn in a very tricky group along with:
Inter Milan

Will September be as successful for Hull City?
Hull City fail in the attempt to sign De Girolamo from Sheffield United. A £250,000 bid was accepted from United but Hull and De Girolamo could not agree on his contract talks. He wanted £10,000 a week which proved to be too much for Hull as it could be spent elsewhere.

In other news, Stephen Quinn believes that he should be playing at a bigger club but was proved wrong when nobody came in for him.

Hull City rejected a bid of £5 million for Nikica Jelavic from Rayo Vallecano. Jelavic afterwards signed a new 3 year deal at Hull and is in Tomkinsons plans for many years.

Hull also rejected a £1 million bid from Brighton and Hove Albion for Yannick Sagbo. The player was happy that the bid was rejected and pledged his future to Hull.

Within the last few minutes of Deadline Day, Hull City accepted a £10 million bid for Shane Long from Wolfsburg. Contract details however could not be agreed and Long was disappointed to see that he was still playing for Hull City. Fans were annoyed with the behaviour of Long and were pleased to see him transfer listed.
