I would like to congratulate the chairman of Hull City, Adam Pearson, for appointing a less ugly manager than the previous sloth-like character of Iain Dowie, and also a less hideous looking manager than the perma-tanned Phil Brown (born in Sunderland, living in Hull, and without bleach blonde hair – how the hell do you think an all-year orange glow is a good idea).
Not only that I think Nigel Pearson could be a good manager. He seems quite successful.
Our chairman does have a habit of picking a shit manager followed by a successful one;
Jan Molby (erm, where is he now?)
Peter Taylor (2 promotions)
Phil Parkinson (sacked after 4 months)
Phil Brown (saved us from relegation, promoted via Wembley, kept us in Premiership)
Iain Dowie (less said the better)
I don’t want to get promoted. I will be happy just to beat Reading.
