They did it! A 2-2 draw was enough as Leeds beat Watford to ensure it was Hull that would be joining Cardiff in the premier league. Dubbed the £100million game due to additional advertising revenues and crowd attendance.
Steve Bruce should be given all the credit. Written off after being sacked by Sunderland he has once again made his critics eat their own words. Bruce is a good manager but underrated and so has had to manage small teams. He is like Sam Allardyce in the sense that he always offers either promotion from the championship (as guaranteed) and usually a mid tabe finish in the premier league.
Hull will have to strengthen wisely if they are to survive in the premier league.
Look at the team:
Chester McShane Faye
Elmohamady Boyd Meyler Quinn Rosenoir
Not much better than Reading and they have been relegated.
One thing can be counted… Bruce will know and has the experience of surviving in the Premier League on a shoestring budget. Look at Wigan as an example of how it can be done, don’t follow the QPR example of purchasing many expensive failures.
