Premier League Hull City

Manchester United supporter in peace

I really hope things work out for Hull and Phil Brown but if the board decide to get rid of Phil Brown who would you like to see as your new manager? Im a massive fan of Brian Horton and I think he is a good honest manager who knows and understands Hull City like no other manager out there. Just as how Roy Hodgson steadied the ship at Fulham I believe Hull should they get rid off Phil Brown should consider appointing Brian Horton as manager - atleast temporarily

Sacking a decent manager like Phil Brown will only damage the club, we all know who the most successful managers are and also the ones who have been with the same club for a long time, you cant build a great club by sacking everyone just because it doesnt go your way.

Honest and Horton are not two words that belong together! Remember his lies about Fabregas gobbing at him? Both him and Brown looked pretty silly after that one and turned a lot of fans (other teams) that liked you in to fans that didn't!

Brown has to go. His record, especially on selecting & signing players, is awful. He is a fantasist. Do you recall the recent event in which he claimed to have dissuaded a woman from jumping off the Humber Bridge? In today's Guardian it was reported that neither the Bridge authorities nor some of the players that were with him are able to confirm this event. Displays of this sort, plus petulance and a massive ego are disqualifications for the job. He will not improve. Given the parlous state of club finances, they have to give Houghton a try. McClaren would cost a packet (for what, exactly?) and Curbishley has a chquered record anyway. So, Brown must go, Houghton must be given a chance, and support, and they have to get rid of some of the mediocre players that Brown & Duffen bought.

I think the stat above about 4 wins in 12 months says it all. Phil Brown may be a good manager but what good will that do Hull in the Championship again? They have only one card to play- sack him and hope.

'backs' looks a lot like 'sacks'.

he'll be gone sometime this season, the question is who do Hull fans want?

I don't think a lot of you 'get' why he lectured the players on the pitch - it was less about his own ego and more about showing the fans how much he cares about the performance of the team. On the day in question, the team performed woefully, were an embarrassment to themselves, the club, the manager, but most of all to the fans who pay good money - and ultimately the players' wages - to see a bit of effort put in. Personally, as has already been stated, he got you into the Premiership - to not let him have the season - or the best part of it - to try and turn it round for the club, would be criminal.

Of course - having the 'backing' of the Chairman is the death knell for PB - and he will know that.

It's as plain as the nose on your face that Brown has to go. Talk of Horton getting the job is ridiculous. He is 'yesterday's man'. Give Dean Windass a go. He'd be a breathe of fresh air. His passion and commitment are legendary. While playing for Aberdeen (not then managed by SAF) he got three red cards in one game!

Thank God for the Hull support that this weekend will undoubtedly see the demise of Brown. It's all for the best!
