Hull City AFC (A Footie Club) are a little-known Anglo-Uzbekistani football club based in Kingston upon Thames, West Walking, Isle-of-when-a-man-loves-a-woman. Rumoured to be no more than a 2nd-hand Subbuteo team bought from a car boot sale and imbued with life by a mad scientist, they, unbelievably, play in the English Premier League.

Looking for something to do on quiet Sunday afternoons and settling on a 'kick about', Hull City were founded in 1184 by Arch-Bishop Gareth the Brown (Gary or Gazzer to his ale quaffing chums at the Rose & Vestal Virgin - a Whateverspoons drinking emporium in Lesser Chingford) and were the first Occidental team to win the prestigious Jewels Re:May trophy following a monumental 4-2 victory over a Mongol horde select-11 at the Xanadu Pleasure Dome - 1284; to which Mongol head coach Kublai Khan - founder of the Yuan Dynasty and grandson of marauding conqueror Ghengis Khan - is reputed to have exclaimed: "Do I not likey that!" - albeit in Mandarin. Hulls achievements were later immortalized in Samuel Taylor Coleridge's epic 1816 poem 'It is now!':
In Xanadu did Kubla Khan One hell of a beating endure : When Prescott, sacred striker, ran Through a flat back four And poked one in. Off cross-ed bar the ball didst come; The lino's call wouldst start a row That waged for years both dark and long. But who gives a shyte about that now? Cos we won the game and earned a gong!
These days the club plays their home games at the KFC Stadium in Tashkent - capital city of the Republic of Uzbekistan. They previously played at Boothferry Park but moved to their current home in 1992 after the ferry sank during a rather stormy crossing; resulting in the inpromptu deaths of several of the legendary William Wilberforce Babes.
Traditionally Hull played in black and orange, often with a striped shirt design, hence their original nickname 'Eleven Blokes With Really Bad Dress Sense' but, following the signing of Ian St.Triniansussanah, changed to a new strip of string vest and striped loin cloth; hence their current nickname The Mm.. Tigers! Meeeooow!!
In 2003, following a ground-breaking law suit in which it was claimed he had been coating his breakfast cereal with 'sugar', former club mascot Tony 'The Tiger' Tiger was sensationally sacked by the Holy Roman Empire; who had camped outside his walls for fifty days and fifty nights hoping to get an eyefull of his (then) wag girlfriend Abbey Titmouse.
The Glory Years
In 1996 - having finished top of the English Championship (formally League Division 1-0) - Hull City were relegated to the Scottish Premier League. It was during this brief flirtation with 'Pagan Soccer' that Hull became the first team to win a British Championship Trophy with a negative goal difference (1996-97 season) having lost their opening game against Bon Accord 35-0; a feat that almost earned them a place in the Guinness Book of Numpties. Famously the (then) team manager, Gary Brown (an indirect illigitimate descendent of Ach-Bishop Gareth) sat the players down in the centre of the pitch at half-time for an impromptu picnic of ham sandwiches and Irn Bru, making it one of the only games in Scottish Premier League history to be almost called off for crippling indigestion in the Hull City team. Garry Brown himself did not appear for the second half after driving to the local spar for alca-seltzer. After the game he said: "It was disappointing to come so close and yet to have missed out over a paltry brace of goals. At half time I asked the boys for a little more effort at the back during the second half, yet, although there were several clear-cut opportunities in front of our goal, no one was able to poke one in when it mattered." Hull went on to win every other game that season.
In 2008, Hull City began their campaign in the English Premier League by accumulating 17 points from their opening 8 games; with notable victories over London giants Arse'n'all, West Ham-it-up United and Fulham Road, as well as Tottenham not-so-hotspurs. However, adopting the policy of 'It's better to quit while you're ahead' Hull brought an abrupt end to their season and were subsequently relegated with only 20 points to their name.
