    I don't think we ever lost 6 in a row, or 6 in 7 or whatever their run is.

    The style of play is purely a matter of opinion.

    We do have a habit of gifting three points to those who have lost 6 or 7 in a row though, Peterboro, Burnley, Palace, and Leicester come to mind.

    I ain't counting my chickens yet.

    I feel sorry for Villa having to put up with little old Bruce.

    Must admit that's a really **** interview. Was he emotional, drunk, disinterested or all three?

    Jesus H Christ.

    I'm puzzled how anyone can seriously knock the bloke after what he did for us.

    Fair comment but we move on.

    I hope he gets sacked at Villa.

    I liked Brucey when he was our manager. I still like him even though he's the manager for a club for which I have absolutely no affinity.

    If I ever bump into him at some point (which is highly improbable now but you never know) I'll shake his hand and say thanks for the memories.

    I'm grateful for what he did for us, but not remotely bothered that he's gone.

    Bruce was good getting us up initially but then it was stagnation, he didn't have the tactics or couldn't get players to move us on. He just couldn't couldn't get the best out of players often, sometimes they looked disinterested like they weren't up for it. I think he was easygoing and could relate to them and so had their support but at the higher level I think you have to demand more.

    Noone claims Bruce was perfect. If he was a faultless manager, he wouldn't have stayed at little old Hull for years. It was a great fit for a while though, many more good days than bad, and we got two promotions to the PL and a cup final. For that I'll always be grateful to Brucie. Silva is a breath of fresh air, and from the outside looks to be the most thorough, tactically aware manager we've ever had. But that's no reason to be horrible about Bruce. He's a decent and very fair bloke, I wish him luck at Villa, he's gonna need it.

    I think you'll find that they all came here because we were in the Premier League

    We will always be 'little old Hull City' and 'small time' as long as we have fans who rubbish all our ex managers like spurned teenage lasses
