So Iain Dowie has been employed as Hull City manager.
The man who helped relegate Newcastle, did relegate Charlton and got sacked shortly after, and recently got sacked at both Coventry and QPR. And is known for playing the long-ball game. Oh and is horrifically ugly.
Oh and last time we tried to employ him, he turned us down, quote “it would be a slap in his families face if he were moved to Hull”.
This was about 4 years ago, and we ended up with our saviour, Phil Brown instead.
I wonder why Mr Dowie is now interested in the post? I have been to Hull since he originally turned us down and I can confirm with certainty that it is even more of a shit-hole than it used to be (recessionary effects – lots more closed businesses and shops, lots more unemployed people, etc). Perhaps his family have now dis-owned him?
However his saving grace seems to be how ugly he is. He will fit in well as the people of Hull are not especially known for their beauty (I think I can get away with saying that as I spent the first 18 years of my life there).
Oh and we were quite used to the long ball game in the many many years of shit managers that preceeded Phil Brown.
I have to admit, I did rather enjoy the Championship. And there are 8 more games of football each season.
