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!

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.

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.

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 !

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.
