...on the downside, Hull City 1, Tottenham Hotspur 5 was a bit of a chastening experience.

So, dutifully clad in this season's pin-stripe tigers' shirt, I took my seat in the upper tier of the West Stand, more or less in line with the penalty spot at the southern end of the ground, at 7:45pm yesterday evening. You could see across Hull to the Windmill off Oslo road - rather nice view.

Defoe got a hattrick - his final goal (and Spurs' fifth) was absolutely awesome. Watching the game live, rather than with the luxury of action replay/commentary or what not, is a different experience - things happen incredibly quickly, and you're sometimes (often!) left a little bemused by the ref's decisions. On occasion. Every now and then.

Hunt scored Hull's consolation - he looks pretty sharp, to be honest, and the fans all perked up at Giovanni's introduction, mid-way through the first half, too.

The second half started off very quietly, but gradually Spurs asserted themselves, and once they scored their third it was all over as a contest. Nonetheless, too frequently were we looking lethargic and uninterested - players would lose the ball upfield, and then stand around, artlessly, as Spurs pinged the ball around the pitch, edging towards our goal.

Ah well. Next match is Bolton, at home. P and I'll both be there for that one.

I would mock you, and your side, but after Everton's first game of the season I have little I can say. Though, I do believe we should all go off and support Burnley now. ;)

Indeed, the lofty heights of Hull's result last night await us! ;)

Ouch, not a very auspicious start to the season from the Tigers :-(
