Iain Dowie Confirmed As New Hull City Manager

Mark Cohen by Mark Cohen / 17 March 2010, 12:09

As the Sack Race reported earlier in the week Iain Dowie has been appointed as the new Manager of Hull City following the sacking of Phil Brown on Monday. Dowie has been appointed on a short-term contract until the end of the season with the remit of keeping The Tigers in the Premier League, Dowie has had a mixed career as a Manager and will know that if he can keep Hull in the Premier League he will earn himself a longer contract at Hull. It is somewhat of a surprise appointment from the angle that Dowie has very little experience as a Manager in the Premier League with only a short lived spell at Charlton on his record as a Manager.

The former Northern Ireland Striker has also had stints at QPR and Crystal Palace as a Manager with varying degrees of success which will be a worry for Hull fans as they scrap for their lives in the Premier League. Phil Brown had done an excellent job at the KC Stadium by firstly getting them to the Premier League and then keeping them up last season but in the end he paid the price for failing to kick-on this season. The appointment of Iain Dowie is a clear risk for Hull City with just a few games left this season as they try to keep themselves in the Premier League for a third consecutive season.

Dowie faces a crucial start to his campaign with a trip to the the already relegated Portsmouth on Saturday, three points looking absolutely essential for the new Gaffer if he is to start building some confidence around the squad. However, we take Dowie to be back looking for a new job come the Summer with Hull relegated back to the Championship and once again looking for a new Manager. This is a move that could well backfire on Hull Chairman Adam Pearson as it may destabilize the club if they do go down as the bookies are suggesting they are going to do, if that's the case then Hull will be looking for their third Manager in just a matter of months. Iain Dowie though has a chance to resurrect his Managerial career by keeping Hull in the Premier League and should he achieve it then he would become an instant fans favourite at the KC Stadium.
