That Friday Feeling...

That Friday Feeling...

That Friday Feeling! You do get me wondering, Wednesday!

Picture this - Its Friday afternoon, 1 hour left at work until your birthday weekend… possibly the most productive hour of my working year, filled with positive vibes… lest we forget birthday tickets from our young 'un for the reasonably local derby with the tigers; a first visit inside the pretty little KC Stadium to boot, writes Mark Hollins.

Now you have an idea on things preceding the game I shall begin a report on all things Hull-Wednesday…

Driving to Hull is always a pleasure and never a chore, it`s like the perfect distance for an away game - not too far that if(when) you lose you have to drive miles to sulk at home, but far enough so you know you`re going to watch your team on someone else`s patch.

Parking was ideal; £3 and 5 minutes walk and clearly no danger of getting stuck in the cark park as it was huge!

Into the ground and no sign of a cheeky beer opportunity as they only sell it for 30 minutes after the gates open… Not good. Alternative hot dog and bottled water made for a pretty poor replacement… Think replacing David Hirst with Barry Corr….

Nice seats - right behind the goal and a few rows in front of the injured Richard Wood!

After the crowd had been stirred on the three home sides by the little chubby 'radio voiced` announcer it was time….

To the game!

What a start, domination from the off and a quick fire penalty for our efforts; note to self - cheaters CAN prosper.

"Der Der Der Der, Deon Burton" with a fantastically cheeky handball and the best opportunity he has of scoring is well earned… 1-0!

"Who needs Mourinho…"

We`re looking good and the crowd is sounding great - unlike a late taxi driver, are we actually turning the corner now?

I had to ask!

Enter the defence of the season + Brad "can`t kick won`t kick" Jones

BOOM!!!

"1-0 and you ****** it up"

BOOM!!

"1-0 and you ****** it up"

All of a sudden we`re behind! (Normally this is where supporters of most other teams would write 'I couldn`t believe it`… Of course the stench of defeat was all too familiar from where I was sat)

I don`t really remember much of the game from then on, couple of decent efforts, cracking volley from Tudders, thunderbolt from Brunt and a second half mildly dominated by the team in blue and white. 'Domination minus End Product` is a formula all too familiar for Wednesday.

For the first time this season I think it was difficult to take any positives from a game, we sorely need a goal machine, something which has never been in doubt, but also I think we need Mr Folly returning ASAP. I am no fan of Steve 'I do the dirty work` Adams, Whelan didn`t perform and on Friday`s showing picking Brunt over the invisible BOB will be the easiest decision of the week for KPS.

Before I finish I`d like to banish any myths about the KC being soulless and quiet; their fans were impressive and it is very easy on the eye, some nice pictures were taken on the old dog and bone on the way out.

35 minutes and were back in Donny… Good things

Final thought…

We sure know how to pose for the Sky cameras!

A win sorely needed now at our place against an inconsistent Derby…. 2-1 Wednesday ;)

See you Saturday!
