Hull City betting
Hull City’s recent seasons have been a roller coaster ride between the Championship. This is now their third consecutive season in the second tier after the 2017 relegation, in which they finished 13th last term.
They aren’t very likely to get back up after this season, with a number of other clubs appearing to have put much more effort into their bid for Premier League promotion. Therefore, the betting odds of 34.00 of that happening, along with those of 251.00 to win the league, seem right and proper. The betting odds on them going down to League One are significantly shorter, standing at 6.00.
Hull Key Players
There were a few comings and goings at the squad this summer, but very little money (comparatively) changed hands as they were mostly free transfers and loans. Midfielders George Honeyman and Leonardo da Silva Lopes, defender Matthew Pennington and striker Josh Magennis are among those that have arrived, while the club saw the backs of goalkeeper David Marshall, defender Liam Ridgewell, midfielder Evandro and strikers Nouha Dicko and Will Keane.
Captain Eric Lichaj probably remains the most important player in the back line, along with Reece Burke and Jordy de Wijs. Former Liverpool midfielder Kevin Stewart is still there, with Jackson Irvine and newcomer Honeyman likely to play vital roles in linking the team front to back. Manager Grant McCann likes to arrange his attacking game in a way that allows wingers to score, so Kamil Grosicki and Jarrod Bowen should be chipping in with goals on a regular basis.
Hull City fans mostly regard Leeds United as their biggest rival, though tradition says Sheffield United are right up there as well. In 1984, Hull only just missed out on promotion to United, with 33 of the Blades’ goals coming from Keith Edwards, former Hull striker.
There are also rivalries with the likes of Scunthorpe United and Grimsby Town, but those teams rarely play at the same level as Hull.
Hull City Association Football Club (Hull City A.F.C.) was founded in 1904, with several previous attempts at establishing a football club there failing due to the affections of the sports public being mostly turned towards rugby, and they were admitted to the Football League Second Division the following year.
The club spent its entire existence in the 20th century outside of England’s top flight, hovering between the second and third tiers. In the mid-1990s, they suffered a heavy financial crisis, coming very close to liquidation and they only avoided it by selling off their best players at the time, Alan Fettis and Dean Windass.
But after former Leeds United commercial director Adam Pearson stepped in and bought the club, things started improving gradually. Funds were invested both into the team and the infrastructure, and stability, as well as the relief that comes with being free of liquidation fears, was felt on the pitch as well.
The club earned their first ever top-tier promotion as they broke into the Premier League in 2008, and now it’s another period of their history where they’re going up and down, but this time between the top two flights.
Their greatest success ever was arguably reaching the FA Cup final in 2014, which they lost to Arsenal.
