Half Time Hull 0 Villa 1 - So Far So Lucky!
Well the score is fine but that was a tense 45 minutes. Hull are fighting like tigers and, in Bullard, have a player with far more flair than anybody in the West Ham squad, Diamanti apart. Why is it that Hull can accommodate Bullard against Villa but Zola can't find a way of getting our equivalent into the first 11 against Liverpool?
Ivebonkedawhore's finish for the Villa goal was superb but it was a very lucky rebound from an attempted clearance that gave him the chance. Apart from that, and a couple of long shots early on, Villa haven't offered a lot going forward. Hull, on the other hand, have missed two good chances, one with Bullard shooting high and the other seeing an incredible block on the line from our own James Collins to stop Kilbane scoring. If Villa win this 1-0, I might end up calling the decision to sell Ginge to them as inspired. It was, quite simply, one of the best goal line blocks I have ever seen! Keep it up Ginge! By the way, there was a Hull tackle in the build up to the Kilbane chance that showed more commitment than our whole team mustered in 45 minutes at Liverpool.
Fingers crossed that Villa find another goal and kill the game off. If Hull equalize, I could see them winning. And on this showing, they would thump Sunderland at the weekend! The next 45 minutes could decide whether we stay up or go down! Don't let Zola near the Villa dressing room!
