Are Hull finally on the up again?
This weekend Hull City return to Eastlands to face Manchester City so stand by to see manager Phil Brown's half-time team talk from last season repeated ad-nauseam.
You can't forget it, it was the one where he delivered his half-time team talk to the players on the pitch.
It was Boxing Day 2008, and it was the moment it all went wrong for Hull City. At least that's what everybody says, so it must be true - mustn't it?
Cast you minds back - Hull had already won at Spurs and Arsenal, drawn at Liverpool and almost got a point at Old Trafford. They were sixth in the Premier League as they headed for Manchester City and were threatening to be the story of the season.
Perhaps a 4 - 1 defeat to Sunderland just before Christmas had burst the bubble?
What is certain is that Hull were 4-0 down at half-time against City when Phil Brown decided the sanctuary of the dressing room was too good for his side. To a mixture of astonishment and amusement, he made them sit in front of the travelling fans while he let rip.
And so did the media as over the course of the weekend Brown found himself on the end of tirade. We were told he had scored a spectacular own-goal, that the dressing-room would not forgive him.
And so it seemed for a long time. Hull's spiralling descent to the relegation zone seemed unstoppable, and people queued up to say "I told you so".
The City game marked the half-way point of the season and despite the defeat Hull had 27 points.
But they won only one more game and took just eight more points all season.
I was at the KC on that nerve-shredding final day.
Hull played like exhausted and petrified novices, losing to a team of Manchester United youngsters - but staying up because of Newcastle's astonishing incompetence.
At the final whistle the then chairman Paul Duffen was in tears and Brown grabbed a microphone, looked for the nearest camera, and embarked on a truly terrible rendition of Sloop John B.
"Lucky, lucky Hull" we were told, as they were installed as one of the firm favourites to go down this season with Brown top of the list to be the first manager sacked (that "honour" has since gone to Portsmouth's Paul Hart).
Even a month ago you could still have argued the City debacle was the beginning of the end.
Duffen's resignation removed Brown's biggest ally from the club's board, and Adam Pearson returned as chairman with Brown not given any long-term guarantees about his future.
So what's happened? Contrary to what everyone expected the players he "lost" at City have rallied round their manager.
They scrapped to victory over Stoke, rallied superbly to draw with West Ham, and swept aside Everton in a 30-minute blitz which left David Moyes' side with too much to do.
Hull are far from out of the woods, but they are four points above the relegation zone in only their second top flight season.
At the beginning of their Premier League adventure 16 months ago, I'm sure most Hull fans would have taken that.
