Hull City is the team from Kingston upon Hull in Yorkshire in the northern part of England. You can easily recognize Hull with its black and amber colours, which also leads to their nickname ‘the Tigers’. The team’s mascot is Roary the Tiger.
This season is Hull’s second season in the Premier League. The team had a fantastic start of the season last year, but finished 17th and managed to stay in the top league only by one point. How do you think they will do this year? Geovanni has an important role to play for the Tigers at KC Stadium. He came from Manchester City last year and became Hull’s top goalscorer in the 2008/2009 season, also scoring Hull’s first goal ever in the English Premier League.
Hull’s manager Phil Brown had a controversial first Premiership season. Away at Man City at half time, he yelled at his players at the pitch in front of the crowd, not allowing them to go back in to their locker rooms for their usual break. Because of Hull’s amazing start in the top league, he was selected as the Premier League Manager of the Month last September.
