    Hull(away)predictions

    A very tight affair that will test the nerves but I fancy us to nick it.
    1-2 win

    Hull was my first ever away game, Boxing Day I think, not sure, circa 1969.
    1-1

    Just checked it was 26/12/69 and we lost 3-0

    That got me thinking about mine, Seventwo.
    I'm going to have to work it out, though, because I've got several games muddled up in my head. I think it was 1960-61, but even that is a bit hazy.

    I've nutted it out - using an excellent site called "11v11".
    It was at Wolves in September 1960. My dad was a Wolves fan and we both had birthdays in September. I remember now that we stayed with his sister in Selly Oak, and my uncle dropped us off from there because we didn't have a car. I don't remember much about the game, but as it was nil-nil, that's probably not surprising!

    I used the same website to check mine. You must be an early starter or an older git

    Unfortunately, an "older git".

    Well it's been a bright start from both teams. Our final ball isn't quite there but we do have the speed up front to get goals.
    Once again our problems at the back are mainly our own doing.

    Well we've got in front but must not change our tactics! Let's not defend deeply, keep at them!

    Great performance, especially the second half. Williams MOM for me but a fantastic team performance.
    In January we need another Cunningham for RB.
    Well done TM

    Totally agree even though Bennett is starting to win me over.
    Well what can I say
    Great team performance and I am struggling to pick holes in any of them.
    Downing wow just wow for a man in his twilight years as a player what a performance and energy levels to match
    Most rovers fans doubted this signing but what a touch of class.
    Champs got it bang on with Johnson we needed that steely type of player in the middle and that's exactly what we have got,baring the penalty he had a great game.
    Gallagher another one unfairly written off proving his critics wrong.
    Hey even whalton is winning me over too.

    Just watched - courtesy of a friend.
    Defensively, it reminded me of some of those games under Howard Kendall, But I think this team carries more of an attacking threat.
    Surely, we're going to get three or four at some point, given the number of chances we're creating.
    I hadn't realised, beforehand, that Johnson was quite such a hard nut. He's bound to give the odd penalty away, but you can accept that in return for so many ball-winning tackles.
    Excellent for Travis to be playing alongside him too.
    As for Downing, the years rolled away! Strange, really. This was just what Mowbray expected - but rarely got - from Whittingham, so there was an element of gambling involved in the signing.
    Again, brilliant for Chapman, Buckley and Rankin-Costello to be able to learn from him (and Johnson) in training.
