Hull to say bye to Brown before they play us?

Hull to say bye to Brown before they play us?

The Clarets play struggling Hull City at Turf Moor this Saturday and could be facing a team with a caretaker manager in charge.

Hull manager,Phil Brown has certainly been under the cosh recently with his team currently third from bottom in 18th spot with just 8 points from 10 games and yet to win away from home.

According to the Mail Online today, Hull City are on the verge of sacking their 50-year-old manager.

The curse of Twitter has also come back to haunt Phil Brown.

Andy Burton, a Sky Sports pundit according to Vital Hull City has revealed on his Twitter page that Phil Brown has left Hull, although there has not yet been any official confirmation. 'Think Phil Brown has left Hull' he 'tweeted'

The irony is that Brown recently fined their American striker Jozy Altidore £40,000 for 'tweeting' about his lateness during Saturday`s 0-0 draw with Portsmouth although it was thought that Altidore would feature for Hull in the clash with the Clarets this Saturday

Hull are certainly in the wars at the moment with further news today that they are in deep financial trouble.

Only now have their accounts covering the period for the year ending 31 July 2008 been filed at Companies House. They are therefore five months overdue and in addition they make disturbing reading.

They report a loss of about £10 million and the auditors, Deloitte have warned that the club will need a £23 million surplus in order to meet current liabilities.

So there we have it, a struggling club in financial debt, soon possibly to be without their manager and their demoralised fans baying for blood and demanding changes with relegation from the top flight hanging over them!

Damn why do we have to play the Tigers now?

God thats all we need, a team with no manager to play us! Recipe for disaster.

Clarets fans should appreciate Barry Kilby's desire to keep us on an even financial footing.

Stevie C departed the Clarets by mutual consent right after we last played the Tigers on the Turf. Wouldn't it be a coincidence and a half, if he now joined them in time for our next game against them? Don't even think about it!

The knives are out! This from Times Online: Dean Windass, the former Hull City striker, has increased the pressure on Phil Brown by calling for the club to sack him as manager. Windass, who left Hull in January after scoring the play-off goal that sent the club into the Premier League, said a fresh approach is needed at the KC Stadium after a poor start to the season. "I think sometimes you need a fresh change," Windass said. "Phil's done a fantastic job since he's been there but I think it's time that he should get moved on and bring somebody else in.

Local Hull Daily Mail though saying: "PHIL Brown WILL be in charge for Hull City's clash against Burnley, the Mail understands. Earlier reports had suggested Brown was in line to be sacked after bookies suspended betting on him becoming the next top-flight boss to be sacked. But the mail has spoken to three well-placed sources at the Tigers who have confirmed Brown will still be in charge at Turf Moor." Do we believe them?

its a weird one this. I think Hull look terrible ( cant believe I am saying that when we play them on Saturday), but keeping them up, getting them up, and keeping them up again is absolutely fantastic by Mr Brown. But they have been in poor form for the best part of a year! Where do you draw the line? If OC keeps us up in a similar manner, and we have a poor start to next season - will we want him out? As for the finances - Have to say that some of their signings raised eyebrows. Bullard 5 yr contact on £40kish i believe? Geovanni will be on a fair wedge too. It could be that getting to the Premiership is what breaks Hull. Hopefully ( and it appears we are) we are doing it differently!

A statement now on the club's official website says: "Contrary to media speculation the club can confirm that Phil Brown has not been sacked and remains the manager of Hull City Football Club."
