Top targets from Hull City


The Premier League new boys have 6 tremendous home matches to start the season, so I’ve picked out 6 players who could be potential bargains.

The only caveat is that Hull’s first lot of away matches are awful (trips to Chelsea and Man City, for example), so we should make sure we can bench our Hull players for those games.

But let’s focus on the positive: Hull’s first 6 home matches are against Norwich, Cardiff, West Ham, Aston Villa, Sunderland and Crystal Palace. So who could we invest in?

Allan McGregor

The Scottish goalkeeper is Hull’s new number one, signing from Turkish side, Besiktas.

McGregor rotates perfectly with Crystal Palace’s Julian Speroni, so when McGregor is away, Speroni can be called upon at home.

I’m hoping these keepers are priced at 4.0, but 4.5 seems more likely.

James Chester

The former Man United centre-back looks nailed on in any formation. Chester recently signed a new 3 year contract and is highly regarded by The Tigers.

Chester’s only scored 4 goals in 109 appearances for Hull, but he’s definitely worth a look if priced in the 4.0 bracket.

Curtis Davies

The centre-back recently signed from Birmingham, and is set to take his place alongside Chester in a back four, or alongside Chester and perhaps McShane in a back three.

Davies scored an impressive 11 goals over the last 2 seasons, and will likely be priced at 4.5.

Ahmed Elmohamady

The former Fantasy favourite racked up 9 assists from right wing-back last season. He was on loan but Hull have made the move permanent.

If Elmohamady is listed as a defender, we’ll be dreaming of those glory days at Sunderland when he graced our Fantasy backlines.

Robbie Brady

The 21 year-old made 13 assists last season from his left wing-back role, and takes some corners and free-kicks. He can also play in behind the striker and is backup penalty taker.

Brady is another who Man United let go but he’s a contender for our cheap fifth midfielder.

Robert Koren

Koren was Hull’s top scorer last season with 9 goals from his role behind the striker, and has the crucial weapon of spot kicks, along with some corners and free-kicks.

He’s another contender for our fifth midfielder, especially if he keeps his role in the hole, which isn’t certain if Hull revert to a more defensive formation from last season.
