BBC Sport commentator turns Hull City match preview into work of art

How to make sure people read your Hull preview...

Faced with the prospect of hammering out a match preview for Saturday afternoon's fairly nondescript Premier League fixture between Hull and Swansea City, BBC commentator Alistair Mann decided to jazz things up a bit.

Mann cobbled together a wonderfully impressive 30-line poem to set the scene for the game at the KC Stadium.

The Swans they left defeated, the home fans'...

Steve Bruce may be confident his Hull side have enough quality to avoid relegation but that has not stopped him labelling Saturday's clash with Swansea a "cup final".

Hull move on from failed Ben Arfa experiement

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno, Shaka Hislop and Steve Nicol react to Steve Bruce's comments on how Latin countries applaud diving, sparking a heated debate between Moreno and Nicol.

When Hatem Ben Arfa drove into Hull City's training ground on the final night of the summer transfer window, it was quite the sight to behold. Supporters gathered around the Frenchman's car, chanting and applauding. Ben Arfa, like those all around him, grinned from ear to ear.

Inside the club's gated complex there was back-slapping and satisfaction all round. As well as signing off deals for Abel Hernandez, Mohamed Diame and Gaston Ramirez earlier in a chaotic day, Ben Arfa's late arrival was...
