There was drama in East Yorkshire yesterday afternoon when Hull City, the Premiership whipping boys, stunned current champions Manchester United with a fantastic display at the KC Stadium.
The Tigers, languishing in 19th spot, and destined for the Championship if they don't pull their socks up, managed to stifle Sir Alex Ferguson's rampant Reds, and came out of the encounter with a face-saving 3-1 drubbing.
United, fresh from their own humiliation against Fulham at Craven Cottage last week, struggled against a Tigers side that was brimming with confidence after the 3-0 reverse at Arsenal last Saturday.
They huffed and puffed, but couldn't blow Phil Brown's men's house down, with biased referee Alan Wiley conspiring against the men in black and amber, with a ludicrous decision on a cast-iron Tigers' penalty appeal.
Manager Brown said:
"We expected a backlash after United's result at Fulham last week, but it didn't come, and I thought we were well worth our 3-1 reverse."
City play Chelsea next week, and their fans can expect more of the same.
