Catching up with a Tiger!

Catching up with a Tiger!
Emerging from a town more renowned for its Rugby League Counterparts, Hull City A.F.C was founded in 1904. Often regarded as a cup team, with several Semi Final appearances over the years, Hull City can lay claim to the League 1 Title in 1965-66.

The big break for Hull came in the 2007-08 season, earning Promotion to the Premier League. Surviving their first season, Hull never managed to push on and returned to the Championship in 2010.

Playing out of KC Stadium, (32000 Capacity), Hull City's most capped player would be Andy Davidson- 520 appearances, whilst the oldest goal scorer is Dean Windass, at the young age of 39!

Passionate Tiger Daniel Chapman has stepped up to the plate to answer a few questions.

1) Tell us a little about your self Dan! Why Hull City?

I started supporting Hull at 4 years old. My Dad is a massive Hull fan and took me to the first game at Boothferry Park (Former Home Ground before the move to KC Stadium in 2002)

2) Who is your star player and what does he bring to the team?

Robert Koren. He has just signed a new two year contract and was in demand over the off season, chased by Leicester City manager but chose to sign for Hull. Robert Koren brings to the team experience, he reads the game exceptionally well and will be a massive player for us this season

3) Who is your emerging star?

Cameron Stewart, former youth player at Manchester United. He can play on either flank and is dangerous in attack, but poses a risk whilst not covering in defence.

4) What are your thoughts on Blackburn Rovers

I believe that Blackburn Rovers will gain automatic promotion, they have a solid squad but really do need to give Steve Kean a chance (Editor Comment-Go easy on Dan lads)

5) If your could sign 1 Player from the Rovers squad, who would it be and why?

I would go for Morten Gamst Pedersen because he is a hard worker, reads the game well and the games I`ve seen him play gives 100%.

6)Promotion. Is it achievable for both of us?

I believe Hull City can gain promotion back to the Premier League via the play-offs. To achieve this, we must get off to a great start. I think Blackburn Rovers should achieve automatic promotion.

7) Make a team from both sides consisting of no more then 6 players from 1 team!

Robinson

Orr, Hobbs, Givet, Rossenior

Stewart, Koren, Murphy, MGP

Best, Fryatt


8)Predictions?

I'll go with a 1-1 Draw with Fryatt and Murphy on the score sheet!

A big thank you to Dan for this who can be found on twitter

Another person that thinks scraping survival one season then relegation the next doesn't fall into the "giving him a chance" bracket but that aside a good read! Should be a good game tomorrow!
