Hull Man Of The Match Results

The Hull man of the match poll results are in.

Stiliyan Petrov - who only a year ago used to poll 0 votes at all, was once again the man of the match with 43%. What a turn around for this player... long may it continue!

Next up came Zat Knight with 27%

That left:

L. Young (7%)
Friedel (6%)
Davies (4%)
A. Young (4%)
Agbonlahor (2%)
Reo-Coker (2%)
Milner (2%)
Barry (2%)
Gardner (1%)
Sidwell (0%)

Our latest poll, suggested by Col8, asks if MON should play a full strength team v Gillingham in the FA Cup on Sunday.

Soooo glad no-one voted for Sidders, that would have been worrying. My vote went to Zat, but it was a close call.

Big turn around for Zat too. Is it the confidence of being given a start in a proper game or is it because he knows Martin (Laursen) isn't around to clear up? Keep it up!

Zat for me , Petrov was the only one who played in midfield and by God didn't we notice . Zat was really strutting his stuff for me , most confident I've ever seen him , wanted the ball and never just lauched it unless he had no choice.

Petrov has got to be the most improved player this season. He was utterly useless for a full two years, before becoming one of the key players in this brilliant team.

As for the Gillingham question, I'm not sure. We need to save our best players for the league, because we've got a very strong position to defend, and it would be a massive shame to let our form slip away from us now. On the other hand, I'm bloody sick and tired of seeing us doing so badly in the domestic cups, and I'm desperate to put together a decent FA Cup run for the first time since 2000. The BBC seem to think that MON is going to play the strongest team he can, but I reckon he'll probably rest two or three. The one change I would make is to give Delfouneso a run-out - he'll be well up for it, and he'd have a great chance of adding to his goal tally.

The lack of cup games will give our first team a well earned rest for the much more important task of finishing top 4. The recharging of batteries will be much needed especially seeing that we started before everyone else in the inter2bob and if the kids/reserves can do it then fair play to them. They should get some good experience regardless.

I think looking back at last years rest that the players got through not being in any cups was a god send and helped us finish sixth, so thats going to be a "No, play second string" from me.

i think we should play 5-6 second stringers but play key players that are not feeling too tired. i agree yeah the fonz should start!

Every travelling Villan deserves an award, even if only a free hot water bottle from AVFC, for surviving through that bitter, and at times excruciating cold.

Disagree IanSymes. Utterly useless to describe Stan Petrov's first two campaigns at B6 is extremely unfair. I saw him play many very good games, but too many focused on his below par showings. He looked a footballer from day one, he obviously had it in him. Bruce Rioch type player, always looked comfortable with the ball. Sadly though confidence went as the notorious boo-boys got their teeth into him.
