Mohamed Diame's goal sends Hull City back into the Premier League

Mo Diame
Mohamed Diame's 10th goal of the season clinched promotion for Hull City.

LONDON -- Three quick thoughts from Hull City's 1-0 win against Sheffield Wednesday in the Championship playoff final.

1. Hull return to the Premier League

We are often told that promotion at the first attempt, following relegation from the Premier League, is an incredibly difficult thing to do, such are the challenges of the Championship.

However Hull have now joined Burnley in managing it this season after a deserved win over Sheffield Wednesday, which came courtesy of Mo Diame.

Hull City and Sheffield Wednesday tantalisingly close to Premier League

The coverage of the Championship playoff final, one of the biggest games in English football, usually centres around how much money the winner will be guaranteed with a place in the Premier League.

Yet while that cash is significant (whoever wins can consider themselves around £180-200 million richer), for Sheffield Wednesday and Hull City and the 90,000 inside Wembley on Saturday, this game, day and occasion is not about finance but glory. It's about the glory of winning, of an entire season...

Championship playoffs full of talent with Premier League prize on the line

Brighton couldn't defeat Middlesbrough on Saturday and therefore begin the playoffs as the top seed.

One playoff "final" down, one more to go. The game between Middlesbrough and Brighton at the weekend basically amounted to a preliminary version of the one-game promotion decider that makes grown men and women weep with tension. Middlesbrough held on for the 1-1 draw they needed amid the nerves and can kick back for a while, but Brighton have to deal with the illness-inducing terror of the playoffs.

Perhaps it was the occasion and the tension but Brighton looked tired at the weekend. During...

Hatem Ben Arfa's revival at Nice under Claude Puel has been sensational

Hatem Ben Arfa has turned his career around in Nice.

When Hatem Ben Arfa left England in January 2015 his career was in tatters. Having had his Newcastle United contract terminated by the club a few weeks after his disastrous loan spell to Hull City was cut short in December, the French midfielder signed for Nice but was barred from appearing his new club by FIFA and seemed destined to disappear from the radar.

"I am ready to go to the North Pole to play football," he said after being told he could not play for Nice. That wasn't necessary, of course...

Arsenal strikers end drought in welcome FA Cup win at Hull

The ESPN FC panel assess Arsene Wenger's current position within the club, and note that Arsenal will most likely keep him in charge moving forward.

HULL, England -- Three observations from the KC Stadium where Arsenal defeated Hull City 4-0 to advance to the sixth round of the FA Cup.

1. Wenger's welcomed win comes at a cost

History has a habit of repeating itself at Arsenal. It may do yet again. For the third successive season, they have eliminated Hull from the FA Cup. Once again, it could produce a silver lining to a season which is unlikely to deliver a league title or a place in the last eight of the Champions League. But after Tuesday's...

Under-strength Arsenal and Hull go to unwanted FA Cup replay

LONDON -- Three thoughts on Arsenal and Hull's 0-0 draw in the FA Cup fifth round.

1. Managers make their priorities clear

We're now fully accustomed to managers heavily rotating their sides for the FA Cup, but this truly was a reserve game. Incredibly, Arsene Wenger and Steve Bruce made 19 changes between them, and each side featured only two players who would be considered first-team regulars.

Both managers were concentrating on more important midweek games. On Tuesday, Arsenal have a Champions...
