  1. Firstly I’m not thinking about the SL era, although you could say they’ve had a few that they’ve paid big money for - Briscoe for starters? The academy isn’t quite all it seems as like most clubs the players in it are not always local lads and often taken from other clubs... Maybe they had better talent spotters? Connor has lots still to do to become a great, but I can see a lot of tell tale signed he will be!
  2. Sounds like typical Leeds panic buying when things ain't going their way! I expect they'll be linked with a few players at other clubs in the next few weeks... Unfortunately (as Gareth Ellis regaled at a dinner I went to) Leeds are maybe not quite the draw they think they are any more! If Hull are to keep improving, then the sale of someone with the possible future before Connor, would be suicidal (at least to me and OF)!
  3. Just to compound matters, the ragtag crew will be dashing to the Whalebone straight after the game to watch the Pies v Stains
  4. Charlie Birdsall and Keith Boxall to open the soft underbelly of HKR allowing the Imperious Sneyd to run things. Hull by 18 in a fractious game smoothed over by moments of genius from Jake "the snake".
  5. Really hard one to call imo - If the good Cats team play it will be a long haul for FC... If FC fire and Cats don't it could well be a happy hunting ground for FC I'm going FC by 8 purely on the back of having Connor back
  6. You'll get OF going with this one! ?? He could be absolutely awesome, but was a bit of a handful off it as you say!
  7. If Little Jonny gets into a big club set up, surely the nutritional standards will turn him into Big Jonny? ?
  8. Hull Squad: 1. Jamie Shaul, 2. Bureta Faraimo, 3. Carlos Tuimavave, 4. Josh Girffin. 6. Albert Kelly, 7. Marc Sneyd, 8. Scott Taylor, 9. Danny Houghton, 11. Dean Hadley, 12. Mark Minichiello, 13. Joe Westerman, 16. Jordan Thompson, 19. Masimbaashe Matongo, 20. Brad Fash, 21. Sika Manu, 22. Jordan Lane, 28. Jez Litten, 33. Ratu Naulago, 34. Gareth Ellis.
  9. If I had to single one player out last night it’s Sika Manu - he was without equal and I thought MOM by a country mile... When he plays well the team tends to pick up on it - great win against a team seeming to lack direction ?
  10. George Robbies in at full back, so can't see Leeds crossing the whitewash much. Hull by 16 ?
  11. Charlie Stone and Trevor Skerrett to set the platform for a convincing Hull FC win ---- Hudds 14 v 28 Hull
  12. I didn't think he had any influence on Gareth Ellis, but you live and learn ?
  13. I remember the RU making quite a thing of Tim Rodber back in the day...
  14. All the greats had the ability to excite you by thinking fast and executing with precision. Always seemed to have the ability to make things slow down around them while they go full speed. Connor could well be that type of player if he keeps going as he is. He doesn't need to change his attitude imho, as it's part of what makes him tick. Without looking at stats I'm fairly sure there are plenty of current SL players with a much higher penalty count against them that I don't see the same rhetoric about that Connor gets! I'm not saying he's the answer yet, but he has a very good chance of becoming a great if he continues as he is ?
  15. Win or lose, I'll pay every week to see Connor play.... Thought Cas got the rub of the green and without a doubt manipulated a few situations. That said, Hull didn't help themselves, so no real argument from me about the result, but at least we looked 100% better than last week and there's hopefully lots more to come!
  16. The hip flask incident or Drambuie Under The Sun as it was otherwise known was an over zealous stadium employee (nice looking blonde woman) told me off for having a celebratory snifter after Hull had scored.... As we scored another a few minutes after, myself and a few around me started doing the old raise your arm to hide the drink trick which really peed her off!
  17. I'm taking a chinese banquet for 2 menu C to the next game, as I'm obviously going schizophrenic
  18. What happens on tour stays on tour! ?
  19. Not if he flops like Johns did! ?
  20. That should cure him of his "homesickness" !
