Home and away

Now to more important matters.


Hull City have just chalked up their 4th consecutive away win, 1-2 at Watford. This is truly bizarre, since their last 4 home games read: LLDL. This must be the only team in the league that has promotion form away and relegation form at home.
So this great result leaves them 10th, with an outside chance of making the playoffs. But I'm less than elated, since I'm resigned to the fact that the team's inability to perform at the Anlaby Circle (scene of my senior cricket debut, back in the day....) means there is no way they'll get promoted.


What's even more bizarre is that for most of their time in the Premiership, their away form was truly horrendous, with barely a point last season. 


You can observe their weird performance here:
