The Tigers also missed several 'sitters'

The Housemartins, the now-defunct Hull pop band responsible for the iconic album 'London 0 Hull 4', have renamed - and will re-release - the disc from today, as a tribute to their heroes, Hull City.

The Tigers were in action in midweek, against promotion hopefuls, Preston North End, but swept their Lancashire opponents aside by the convincing margin of 4-0, their biggest win of the season, so far.

Not surprisingly, the renaming of the album is as follows:

'Preston 0 Hull 4'.

Housemartins' lyricist, Paul Heaton, who still lives in the city, and attends City's matches, said:

"It was a great win, and, in fact, could just as easily have been ten!"

That would have ruined the renaming opportunity, however.

Sir Tom Finney and Sir Bobby Charlton used to play for Preston, but not in the same team.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
