Hull City Reserves 3 Wigan Athletic Reserves 0

I didn’t go to this match, but hundreds of City fans did to see Jimmy Bullard’s goalscoring return to action in the reserves match at North Ferriby.

And fortunately one of them, DaveHullCityFan, filmed Bullard’s control, flick and volley into the corner of the Latics keeper’s goal.

It’s recorded nearly 70,000 views so far, while my similarly shaky video of Amr Zaki’s reserve team goal a few weeks back notched up similar traffic.

With the rise of good quality videos on mobile phones, hopefully we’ll get to see more of these. So if you’re going to a reserve or junior game, keep your camera handy as you never know if you’ll catch something interesting.

Terry Dolan saved Hull City, claims magazine

Terry Dolan saved Hull City.

Or at least that’s the opinion of this article in The Journal, the spin-off magazine produced by the Hull Daily Mail.

Take a read and see if you can see any spin. Here’s two to get you started:

The manager many fans today still do not realise saved the club on three separate occasions from winding-up orders, thanks to his successful work in the transfer market

Erm, perhaps if he didn’t take a slice of those transfer fees himself. we’d have been a bit better off?

The club ended up in the basement football division

What, as if by magic? Or perhaps we arrived there after Terry Dolan’s team posted the worst ever points total in our history, for which he was rewarded with a longer, juicier contract. Even in the basement division he could only manage to finish 16th, despite being one of the bigger teams.

And you’ve got to love photos like this!
