London 0 Hull 4

TigersSo that's 4 London sides who've fallen to The Tigers so far this season :D

First it was the home game against Fulham, the first match of the season, full of expectation. It didn't look good, but they pulled it back, Super-Sub Folan grabbing the winner.

Then the "Cup Final"-like night in Hull watching them beat Arsenal 1-2 with Kev, Ian and half of Bev Road, screaming the pub down when Geovanni's free kick rocketed in, followed by Cousin's header from another corner set piece, breaking the home record at The Emirates. Funny, no-one at work was talking about it the following week.

Next, Spurs, and the rest of my mates at work predicting the bubble was ready to burst, and Geovanni makes another impressive free kick count.

So, today, West Ham at home, and all the pundits still not acknowledging the feat that is Hull City. Not comfortable, but we did it. And as The Housemartins so put it many years ago, it was London 0 Hull 4. And where are Hull City at the moment? Top of the league, nahh, top of the world more like :D
