image for Hull City Aiming For Top 17 Spot - Brown
Browny: for the chop?

Hull City manager Phil Brown might be a lot of things, but he is certainly a realist. The sunbaked Tigers boss told reporters from the Hull Daily Mail today that, whilst other clubs were competing to get into the Premier League European places, his team were setting its sights on a Top 17 finish.

City finished in 17th last season in the greatest campaign in their entire 104-year history, and Brown believes they can reach those glorious heights once again this term, if his squad stays clear of injuries and suspensions.

And drubbings.

The Top 4 - Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool - are conducting their annual dogfight for the title, but teams like the Tigers are content to avoid the drop into the Championship and almost certain financial ruin, so Brown's target for his team seems sensible enough.

Said Browny:

"It's fine haven' these dreams about Europe, but we have to be realistic. If I can get us into 17th, and save my job in the process, I'll..., I mean..., we'll be smilen' all the way to the bank!"

A survey conducted by a well-known football magazine this week showed that NO OTHER CLUB would employ Phil Brown as their manager.
