After Tuesday's game I was like this Shetland Pony........a little hoarse
I must try and cut down on my shouting tomorrow. The Leicester game had me suffering after and it took until about midday on Wednesday before my voice returned fully. Mind you, an exciting CB40 game at the St Lawrence ground soon had it back in danger once more ! I'm pleased to confirm a Kent win and one that was celebrated in the Bat & Ball afterwards.
After two very creditable performances from the lads it's Hull City tomorrow. They've several good players and will provide another tough test. I'll be taking my lad to the match as will Steve Bruce whose son, Alex, he has signed for the Tigers. It seems Alex shows more loyalty ( or perhaps no one else would have him ? ) than his dad who has racked up 8 clubs in his managerial career ( including Palarse ) after not stopping for too long at the majority.
Bruce senior hasn't set the footballing world on fire as a gaffer and it's hard to envisage him seeing out the entirety of his 3 years contract at the KC. This'll either be because he'll fail to do whatever Hull have hired him to do or some misguided chairman will offer him something he perceives as better elsewhere.
My recollection of the last time we played Hull is of the side managed by Phil Brown. It was one which played dull, time-wasting football with an overly physical approach which sadly saw them promoted at the end of that season. Let's hope that Bruce's side offer up better fayre than that.
The Tigers have achieved perfect symmetry this season with a win, draw and loss. They drew 1-1 with Rotherham in the league cup before finally winning 7-6 on pens. They beat Brighton at home 1-0 last Saturday and lost 1-0 away to Blackburn on Wednesday.
It's hard to envisage a game as exciting as Tuesday's nor indeed any changes to the starting eleven. I doubt that Fuller will be on the bench as the general consensus is that he needs to get match fit. If we can match the effort shown in midweek then we'll be hard to beat.
The forecast is for rain and lots of it tomorrow and I hope it won't spoil the spectacle or indeed dampen the atmosphere which was terrific against the Foxes, more of the same please !
A reminder that another edition of Anorak Addick is due tomorrow so keep an eye out for that. I miss those days when we had several fanzines, VOTV and GH being the two most notable.
Come On You Reds !
