Hull fans deluded by their good start?

Saw a link to their match thread today and ended up reading the whole thing.

The more I read the more I felt they have become deluded very quickly calling us no hopers and claiming it should have been a walk in the park beating us.

With their fixture list looking tough in the next month or two, perhaps they needed the reality check today.

I think they were more focused on the name change protest than supporting their team. Not as comfortbale a season as it was a couple weeks ago. Hopefully we are starting to learn how to play in this league.

How lucky were they yesterday?

Firstly meeting Liverpool without Sturridge and them playing just about as badly as I've ever seen the scousers play?

Two spawny goals helped in by Fred Skertel.

Agree Hoof for exactly the reasons you mentioned.
Had to switch off when they went 2-1 up as the writing was on the wall.

Liverpool looked awful despite being pretty good up to now.

Lets hope their owner continues to berate and p!ss off their fans the way he has been.

It will be interesting to see their 2 new strikes deal with our defence.

This has turned into a huge match.

Palace have dealt well with much better strikers from other teams recently so I wouldn't worry too much about Hull's strike force in particular. Over the past two seasons Jelavic and Long don't have that impressive of scoring records. Everton and West Brom sold early because Hull were willing to overpay to get the deals through. For instance, Long's contract was about to expire so it was a very good deal for them at around 6 million pounds. If Palace were willing to overpay too then we would of had deals in this window already. I don't mind that the owners care about value especially as the team is playing solid together.

Long's contract had 18 months left so wasn't really about to expire.

They have shelled out millions for two strikers who have a proven track record for not scoring many goals.

I'm confident we can go about stuffing them the same way we did on a Tuesday night last season at Selhurst.
A 4-2 loss really flattered them that night. Gayle to step in to KP's boots and fire a hattrick!
