2014/15 Premier League Review: Hull City

Premier League Final Position: 18th 

Review

The 2014/15 season was a difficult one for Hull City fans to take and the side never really got going. The Tigers won on the opening day but then had a run five games before their next win came and winless streaks became a feature of their season. Their longest winless run came between October 18 and December 20, where Steve Bruce’s failed to take all three points in ten. The Tigers only registered eight wins all season, drew 11 and lost 19 games and their tally of 35 points was two worse than last season. They did show in patches in the season they were capable of picking up points from difficult games but ultimately Bruce’s side never had enough to stay up.

Best Moment

1-0 win over Liverpool – one of the better moments of Hull’s season. This gave them some hope in their battle against relegation but, unfortunately for them, it wasn’t enough.

Worst Moment

Losing both home and away to Burnley. To avoid the drop it is essential to pick up points from teams around you in the league and taking points from both these games could have made all the difference.

Player of the Year

Ahmed Elmohamady – the winger featured in all 38 of the season and his work-rate was impressive. If Hull can keep players with his mentality they will have a chance of bouncing back next season.

Biggest Win 

Hull City 2-0 Crystal Palace (Oct 4, 2014)
Sunderland 0-2 Hull City (Dec 26, 2014)
Hull City 2-0 Everton (Jan 1, 2015)
Hull City 2-0 Aston Villa (Feb 10, 2015)
Crystal Palace 0-2 Hull City (Apr 25, 2015)

Biggest Defeat

Manchester United 3-0 Hull City (Nov 29, 2014)
West Ham United 3-0 Hull City (Jan 18, 2015)
Hull City 0-3 Newcastle United (Jan 31, 2015)

What to improve for the 2015 season…

Hull City have an awful lot to improve on if they are to come back into the Premier League. Steve Bruce will be hoping to avoid a mass-exodus, but at the same time there are players who Hull need to move on. Conceding was a real problem for Hull this season and if they are to stand any chance of a swift return to the Premier League they have to solidify their leaky defence.
