Brown's reign ends at Hull
Phil Brown's reign as Hull City manager ended this week after the club decided to seek a new manager to steer the team away from relegation.
Brown took the Tigers to the premiership and in their first season in the English Premiership Hull managed to beat top sides like Arsenal and Tottenham away from KC Stadium.
However, despite the good start to the 2008/9 season, Hull did not perform particularly well in the second half of the season.
That poor spilled into this season and now the team lies second from bottom with just 24 points and a win from safety.
Hull has played 29 matches and therefore the new manager has nine matches to secure premiership survival.
Hull has won just five matches and all the wins were at home.
All the wins were won by a one goal margin. Hull is one of just two teams not to have won away so far this season. The other team is Burnley.
