Hull City have been managerless since Sunday when Leonid Slutsky left by ‘mutual consent’, but here’s how football fans have reacted as Nigel Adkins was announced as the new Tigers boss.
So far it’s been a rather depressing season for Hull supporters. Sitting three points outside the Sky Bet Championship relegation spots, having failed to win in the League since October 21st (a 0-1 win at Barnsley) – and not at home since the end of September. The Tigers exited the EFL Cup at the first hurdle with a 2-0 defeat at Doncaster Rovers, and an immediate return to the Premier League now looks unlikely.
However some Tigers supporters have already made their mind ready for potentially a season in the Sky Bet League One next term, with Hull City sitting in a precarious current situation.

Hull city show their ambition for league 1 football by appointing Nigel Adkins as manager #hcafc

Meanwhile other supporters are already counting down until the inevitable end of Adkins’ tenure, with the Tigers having had four different managers since Steve Bruce’s four-year tenure at the KCOM Stadium came to an end in 2016.

While a few Hull City supporters are taking a positive stance on Adkins’ appointment.

Although, while the Club may be going through a difficult situation, at least this fan was able to take some humour of the ongoing circumstances.
As long as Adkins doesn’t crack out another poem at a press conference, we’ll be just fine. This City has enough culture. #hcafc

Adkins may not be Hull’s supporters’ preferred option, however the 52-year-old has plenty of experience when it comes to winning promotion and he could use these past experiences in order to salvage the Tigers. And that task begins when Hull City host Brentford in the League on Saturday afternoon.
