Hull City looking to pip Crystal Palace to appointment of 38-year-old manager

The Hull City supporters here in the Football Transfer Tavern are desperate to establish who will be their next manager following the departure of Marco Silva who has joined Watford.

The Tigers were relegated from the Premier League last season and it is imperative that the club get a new manager in place ready for an assault on promotion during 2017/18.

Our landlord has spitted some potentially exciting news for the Hull supporters in the Croydon Advertiser, who are reporting that Garry Monk is in pole position to take the vacancy at the Yorkshire-based club.

The ex-Leeds United manager is out of work after departing Elland Road at the end of the campaign and Hull hope to entice him into an immediate return to the Championship.

Monk revived the fortunes of the Whites last season, although the season did ultimately end in failure as the club were denied in their attempts to earn a play-off place.

The former Swansea City man would represent a decent appointment for a club in the second tier, although some of the Hull supporters are unsure of his arrival after his failed bid to take Leeds into the Premier League.

One Hull fan is enjoying a bottle of the house white wine and she thinks that Monk would be a solid appointment, stating that if he is backed in the transfer market the club could challenge for promotion next season.

Hull City fans, would you welcome Monk to the club? Let us know in the comments below!!!
