City boss could be in the Brown stuff come Saturday

Sources close to The Sack Race have informed us that Hull City boss, Phil Brown, has been given just one more game to turn around the club's fortunes following a dismal start to the season which has seen The Tigers win just two of their opening ten Premier League fixtures. There have been rumours all week about Browns future with the bookies stopping bets on him being the next for the chop on Wednesday and with Chairman Paul Duffen resigning on Thursday the speculation continues to mount for Phil Brown. The Next Hull City Manager Odds are already in full flow with many sure that Brown is for the high jump over the next few days and it is looking an increasingly untenable position for the former Derby Manager.

Whispers coming out of the KC Stadium suggest that Brown is on the brink of being sacked, and Saturday's game away to Burnley could be the final straw. Last weekend's goalless draw at home to fellow strugglers Portsmouth was the first time in the club's dour run of just three wins in thirty Premier League matches (dating back to that now infamous 5-1 defeat at the hands of Man City on Boxing Day last year) that the City faithful have vociferously expressed their disapproval at the current state of affairs. Loud booing from large sections of the support together with chants directed at Phil Brown himself are believed to have alerted the Hull board to just how severe the paying fans see the situation and crisis talks are thought to have already taken place between Chairman, Paul Duffen, and Brown.

Beginning of the end? Hull have won just three Premier League matches since Brown's infamous team talk.Defeat to Burnley on Saturday is likely to spell the end for Brown who took over at the KC Stadium in December 2006, replacing the now Charlton Athletic manager, Phil Parkinson, who was sacked after managing to guide the team to five wins from a short spell of just 24 games in charge, a sequence that ironically is better than Brown's current run of form!

Bookmakers, Paddy Power and Victor Chandler are currently offering the best odds about Phil Brown being the next Premier League manager to leave with both firms offering 2/1. However, if the speed at which a couple of staff in the Sack Race office got their bets on is anything to go by upon hearing this rumour, that price is likely to be gone before too long.

Burnley have won four of their first five games at Turf Moor, the best start at home of any team promoted since the Premier League began. In comparison, Hull have lost four of their first five away matches this season and The Clarets are justifiably favourites to win this game, a result that is sure to bring an end to Brown's tenure as Hull City boss.
