Two matches in. 4 points. Today Hull city proved that they can stand up to the better teams in the premier league. Like last week the first twenty minutes or so proved difficult and Blackburn had the better of the play. After 38 minutes Blackburn went ahead thanks to a long ball from midfield and a well timed run and strike by Jason Roberts. The fact that he managed to tuck himself behind three Hull defenders and stay onside was a great move on his part. It also highlighted to us that at this level every player has to have %110 concentration .
A huge plus from this game is that we kept pushing until the end. A goal seemed possible right up until the ninetieth minute and Hull could’ve easily picked up the victory. Also the team came back from one nil down, for the second week running. Where Hull may lack in quality and spending power, sheer grit and determination may see us surprise a few people this season. In the mean time, I’ll enjoy seeing city in the champions league spots!
