Hull...will the fairytale continue?

Geovanni - Hull's Midfielder

Recently promoted Championship side Hull have made a blitzing start to their first year in top flight football. Hull have managed to make the best start from a team just promoted to English Premiur League since Ipswitch in 2003-04 season.

Having won 6 games and drawn 2 from 11 possible starts Hull have the opportunity to scare the top four already downing Arsenal 2-1 earlier this season. It seems that they have the audacity to cause a stir and only going down to Machester United in their last game 4-3 they showed something that lacking in most sides...the ability to battle on.

Whats making Hull surprise the critics even more is their ability to continue when down, it seems that their never give up attitude has hasseled the big guns of the EPL.

But will it continue? Hull have been lucky when it has come to injuries as they haven't been hit that hard, and with minimal depth in their squads ensuring that injuries are kept to a minimum will make them a sucess. Going by recent form they will challenge the top six for UEFA at the end of the season.
