They may not have the term ‘Tigers’ in their official name but Hull City F.C. certainly have shown that they can scratch and claw.
For the third time in five seasons Hull City Football Club are back in the Premier League. The living definition of a yo-yo team Hull have gone up and down the ladder of English football more so than any other side over the past few seasons. It is almost as if they need to create a new league of teams that are too good for the English Football League but just not quite good enough for the Premier League.
But until that league comes into being Hull (2-1-2, 7 points) find themselves once again looking to stay in the top league in England. If their early season form is any indication they may actually have a chance this time. With wins over Leicester City and Swansea City and a good draw on the road against Burnley Hull have started their campaign in good form.
Despite two tough losses to Arsenal and Manchester United Hull supporters are hoping that they have what it takes to finally stay up in consecutive seasons. But the fear is that ownership’s penny-pinching will spell another drop.
So can Hull City F.C. stay up? Let’s take a look at their three hopes and one fear and find out.
