Hull Getting Cocky

Well, to be accurate one bloke who played for Hull in the 70s is getting cocky. But it will be interesting to see how the Hull players cope with expectations being raised:

Ex-Tigers star predicts promotion

Hull City all-time great Ken Houghton has said he is confident that the club will be promoted to the Premier League.
Houghton played in the team which finished fifth in the old Second Division in 1971.

He explained to BBC Look North: "I don't think I've seen a team better at home. It's in our hands now, we're in pole position.

The Tigers moved into sixth place - and into a play-off spot - following victory over Scunthorpe on Saturday.

The last time Hull finished as high was in 1986.

Houghton, who also managed the club, was thinking of the fans when he added: "It would be lovely for them to have Premiership football next season.

"I think the chairman would have to think about extending the stands. Hopefully we can get 40,000."

I do think on paper and form guides they are the most likely to grab 5th spot now Charlton are flaging as they probably have the easiest run in and games in hand (unlike charlton who have a tough run in)

A Cardiff
H Soton
A Colchester
A Leicester
H Watford
A Barnsley
H QPR
A Sheff Utd
H Palace
A Ipswich

However Soton, Barnsley, Leicester and Cardiff will all be desperate to win to avoid the drop (Colchester gone IMO).

However 5th/6th spot is definitely do able for us.

You need only look at their team and then where they are in the table to see how distinctly average the division, as a whole, is.

hehe.

g*sh team, relying on an OAP for goals and with one of the most uninspiring squads in the whole division, you have to give Phil Brown credit for taking them to such a good position. Shame their fans are so obnoxious.

Premiership though? Yeah right. If you think Derby crashed & burned this season you aint seen nothing yet if Hull go up. Which they won't.

They are THE form team and if the play offs started tomorrow, they would win it because of the momentum they have.

I can't stand Phil Brown though... he is such an ****hole. I'm sure they think the same about NW.

Living in the Hull area I am treated to Tigers fans wild predictions of the play offs and promotion and even UEFA footy at the KC by 2010 !

The thing to remember is that they were in League 2 only four seasons ago so their rise pretty meteoric really. Their fans have some very unrealistic expectations though and although they have ( they think ) replaced Leeds as the big team around here , they have a lot to learn.
Older wiser Tigers fans are happy to slot back to the happy days of being a mid table ( old) Division 2 side capable of springing a few suprise results from time to time.

The play offs are in their sights and they are, rightly, very excited about the prospect of it at the moment, especially playing at Wembley.

The thing is, we will probably have to move after April 26th when Palace ruin it all for them by thrashing them at the KC. Can't wait
