only caught the second half.. why did hesk go off so early? carew booting the corner flag was amazing and it's fantastic to see ash putting in a performance finally! brilliantly-worked goal and it's surely a sign of improvement if we didn't let those ugly dirty stokey mugs pull one back this time? fantastic. come on hull! come on the villa boys!

These stats go up super quick , very exciting game there was a 20 - 25 min period in the first half that was just magic but i get more grey hairs every 2nd half . Star lookalikes Brad Jnr and captain Kremmen

hull to sneak a point or snatch it would set us up for the arsenal/liverpool/triple blackburn games so nicely! i remember dredding this month, i really wasn't happy. i know spurs and city fans loved the look of our fixtures, but we've done amazingly well. so proud to be a villan right now! merry christmas everybody!!

Yup, great result...Stoke did a good job of not letting us play for most of it, but let's face it, last season we'd have probably lost this! UTV.

I only caught the second half to, I was impressed with carew giving away his shirt. I am really excited to see the second half of the season. UTV

Job done. 9 points in a week. Can not moan at that. Best Christmas present I could've asked for. Bring on Arsenal. Everyone's talking about Liverpool's place in the top four being vulnerable. I'd say Liverpool's place has GONE!. Man Utd's place in the top two is vulnerable. UTV!! COME ON HULL!!!

Pinch me... We are 5 points off the top of the premiership, and 6 points ahead of Man City, and 8 points ahead of Liverpool. I am dreaming right? Sounded like not the best game the bits I caught on the radio between the wedding speeches, ibut another 3 points in a game we would have been worried of loosing last season. Shame Arsenal are 1-0 at half time.

I know this is unrelated but I just watched Phelan give an interview AGAIN when United lose. Ferguson is a *****er and a sore loser. Never conducts interviews unless they win. Ya ******** **** bitch ass SAF!

personally I don't remember Friedel having a decent save to make so 5 shots on target doesn't seen right to me!

Not the best game ever, but 3 valuable points and just what we wanted before xmas. Looks like Arse might be without Fabregas for our game which is something, but that'll still be a tough game. At least the players get an extra day to work off all the mince pies. UTV !

Another great result, certainly had to grind it out but another worthy win me thinks. Exciting times!

shame there weren't more there but I guess games are coming thick and fast, people are struggling financially and xmas is just around the corner. Still thought we'd have got more in though.

Couldn't make it through snow and had to listen to that BIG nosed *****-wit Phil Thomson on SSN. He so badly wanted Stoke to win, it was embarrassing. The guy should not be allowed out of Merseyside because no-one wants to hear his single mindedness and Pro- Scouse rants, other than his fellow reds.

One interesting stat.

Take your shirt off in celebration...yellow card. John Carew *****s the corner flag at a kid and doesn't get anything?

Villan444 - I was watching it on the internet and listening to Phil Thompson as well. It was like 2 different games. Amazing that he's is allowed to keep his job, the biased *****.
