Curse of Dowie strikes again
A nose for success
Iain Dowie confessed to a dark feeling in the pit of his stomach after Hull lost 0-1 at home to Sunderland today, making their relegation from the Premier League a near certainty. Dowie is 'temporary management consultant' at Hull, but relegation consultant might be a better title after he relegated Newcastle as coach last season and set up the Addicks for relegation before he was sacked. He also had unsuccessful spells at Coventry and QPR.
Such is the ingratitude of a section of the Hull City support that they have taken to jeering the maestro.
Unfortunately it is more than likely that he will re-appear on Sky as a goggle eyed match summariser, frightening children before the watershed.
