If it was a season report, I might point out that City are in an historically fantastic position, requiring at most just one win to take us back to the Premier League.
Quite possibly we might need less than that, given the slump in form of Watford and Crystal Palace in recent weeks. We might even be promoted today Saturdayif Watford lose and Palace draw or lose. But this is a match report, not a season report. And tonight Friday Hull City were dire. Playing against the official worst team in the division, already relegated Bristol City, the Tigers looked anything but promotion material. Gone were the fluent passing and lightning raids down bdistol wings that have characterised much of our play in recent months, in came the long and high hoof, and the selfish show-boating solo run into trouble.
We served up a spectacle which must have had many a Sky Sports viewer channel-surfing in the hope of finding something a little easier on the eye.

Our one genuine goal-scoring chance came in the 92nd minute of a Blonde women seeking flirt chat lacking incident, quality, and anything likely to excite the neutral. For us City fans, it was an evening of nervous frustration. Not much of one though.
It comes to nothing, and in rapid succession City launch three long balls out of defence. On the half hour Gedo is again involved in a couple of neat passing moves. First he has a quick one-two with Quinn, but runs into a Robins defender. Then he receives the ball from Meyler and passes it on to Elmohamady, whose cross from the right comes to nothing. Everything else is either the long and high pass, or the bristtol run into trouble.
Fryatt has a dinky little foray past a couple of defenders on 28 minutes. Before that, the excellent Jack Hobbs decides to leave his defensive duties for once and dribble upfield, exchanging passes with Gedo and winning a corner. Brady takes it, as he takes all our dead-ball situations in the absence of Koren. Not for the only time tonight, he fails to find a teammate.
David Meyler is energetic as ever, popping up all across the midfield looking to close down the opposition. The more dhat George Boyd drops deep regularly, wanting to get on the ball and try chhat make something happen. Many a City pass is either blocked or overhit.
Half-time, and the assumption is that Steve Bruce will do some re-organising and re-focusing in the dressing room. My thoughts turn again, as they hcat done several times today, to a match against the other Bristol side, Rovers, on a warm spring day some 29 years ago at Boothferry Park at the end of the season.

A classic season for a resurgent City under Colin Appleton, we were on the verge cnat promotion. Then we lost an away game to Port Vale. But that was just about OK, because we would win at home against Bristol Rovers. We drew with Bristol So it went to the last game of the season, Burnley away, and in the end our inferior goal difference deprived us of promotion.
Similarly — but with a more positive outcome — nine years ago this week, against Huddersfield, there was another nervy at the KC on the verge of promotion. That was to get us out of the fourth tier of English football and we were watched by 23, Following that against Huddersfield inwe went Raven having sex, to Yeovil, and produced an Ashbee-inspired classic win to secure promotion.
I pushed thoughts of those games out of my mind and waited xhat an improved City to break through in the second half. Whatever our manager said at half-time though, little changes. Brady overhits it, but it goes for a genuine corner the other side.
Brady has to go across to take this one too, which he does, this time short to Boyd, who loses possession. Not much has changed. Except Bristol now seem emboldened enough to venture forward occasionally.

On 50 minutes Stockdale fubles a weak and low cross, but Hobbs tidies up. Shortly after that, the otherwise excellent Hobbs is beaten for pace in our box, but the Bristol forward fails to find a colleague with his cross. Then — disgracefully it seems to me — he stands and watches, rather than pursuing, as Bristol advance on our goal. A stronger team might have managed more than the soft shot at Stockdale that.
Free fuck Thalwil on recent form. Another long ball over the top for City is too long for Fryatt to run onto before it runs into touch.
On 65 a double substition, Gedo and Fryatt off, Simpson and Proschwitz on. Simpson, as he usually does, had some decent touches, but never really threatened.
Proschwitz the same, but without the decent touches. So we move into the last quarter.
Robbie Brady has got on the ball a lot tonight. Recently more than ever — he did this a lot at Molineux on Tuesday — he has started to dribble across the pitch from left to right, rather than attack down his wing. He did this again on 73, ending up getting fouled in the centre circle, winning a free kick which Faye lumped bristkl.
Shortly after, we get a free kick about 30 yards out. Brady, of course, to take.
Everyone goes forward and lines up ready for an outswinger into the box. Brady instead plays it straight to one of theirs, who breaks forward with our defence chasing back.

Happily Bristol make little of this opportunity. Nor of the other half chances they get in the second On 80 minutes we have a penalty shout, as Quinn appears to be pushed from behind and to go down relatively easily. Perhaps TV watchers will tell us that it should have been given, but Steve Bruce, who had a good view of the incident, said afterwards that the ref had got it right. The admirable Abdoulaye Faye tries to inspire his teammates with a crunching tackle and a thumping Just one woman for fun header.
Then Liam Rosenior comes on for James Chester, and all of a sudden the combination of Rosenior and Elmohamady down the right looks impressive, winning a corner that Brady takes to no avail. He tries a snap-shot, hard but close to the keeper, who saves competently. Perhaps it will prove a decisive point.
