A good start for both Hull and their likely talisman, Rhian Brewster.
Back With An Ang
Angus MacDonald returned to training this week and was met by warm applause in the changing rooms. Tears aplenty it's been a long road to recover for Angus who was diagnosed with Bowel Cancer some months ago. It was a heartbreaking moment for the ex Barnsley center back but the overwhelming support for him really aided his recovery. Angus said "I was lucky to catch it early and to overcome this in just a few months is really fantastic and the support for me has been nothing short of incredible" when asked when he would see himself back playing Angus was quoted "Well that's up to the gaffer, we have a few meetings to catch up and it looks like things won't be rushed but watch out for October, I think I'll be ready by then". These are the types of stories you love to see, good news comes once every blue moon and this will certainly be a gift of optimism and togetherness at the KCOM Stadium for the season ahead.
In other news, there has yet to be any news on a potential suitor for Hull City after numerous attempts to sell the club have fallen through. The fans have held nothing back this season again with numerous chants from the sidelines screaming Allam out. Its been no secret that a mixture of poor performances, overprices tickets and poor ownership has driven fans away from the KCOM Stadium with Hull only managing to fill around half the seats of their KCOM Stadium. Something will surely need to be done to see fans return to West Hull and Caville is hoping he can be the spark to reignite that flame. When asked by local newspaper Hull Daily Mail if the club was aware of the support being driven away from the club Caville's answer was one of optimism " I think it's a definite concern for sure, over recent years there has been a lot of incidents on and off the pitch and ultimately I think the fans are becoming fed up, its not my place to discourage the owners as they have given me this wonderful opportunity, however, I think that reinventing this club from top to bottom and focus on the pitch can help push this club realize the ambitions of every supporter far and wide". Who knows what's to come in the Hull City Sage all we do know is that a fantastic month in August has positioned Hull 8th in the table to points of the play-offs.
Consistency is key will be reverberating across all of Hull this month with The Tigers set to play another month of Championship Football. September will be sure to separate the boys from the men as form will take hold and we can get our first glimpse of who will be promotion favorites and who's set for further misery. City will be looking to take full advantage of their current form and will be hoping to hit the ground running when they play (Team). A 2-week break will allow tired legs to rest and hopefully see the attacking trio Grosicki, Bowen and Brewster (G.B.B) back to full fitness and form. With an impressive start its no suprise to see Brewstewr picking up young player of the month for August
Hull will have 2 games at home against QPR and Coventry on the 21st and 24th of September respectively whilst the traveling supporters can look forward to trips to 2nd placed West Brom and 10th placed Cardiff City on the 14th and 28th. There are plenty of points to be won this month and Caville will surely be looking to keep on defying expectations and showing the pedigree of what looks like a strong Hull City side this year. A case of injuries may be called into question at some point with the depth wearing thin for the first team and a team with such quality on the field could easily be derailed if key players begin to fall foul to the injury plague. Let us know how you think September will go for The Tigers and we will join you back for a comprehensive review of The Tigers in Septemeber, in the words of Porky Pig "Tha Tha That's all folks..."
