EBENEZER COBB MORLEY
CAMPAIGN FOR STATUE TO HONOUR HULL BORN
'FOUNDER OF FOOTBALL'
Widely regarded as the founder of modern football - Ebenezer Cobb Morley was born down Princess Street and lived in Hull until the age of 22.
After some initial local interest a few years ago, a statue seems to be no nearer being created. A new Twitter account has been set up hoping to generate support for a statue. Let's celebrate our history and heritage - we have a lot to be proud of in this city!

HULL CITY v CRYSTAL PALACE
Q & A WITH THE EAGLES BEAK
Thanks to Jay at Crystal Palace fan site 'The Eagles Beak' for answering a few questions for us ahead of the visit of the Londoners on Saturday. Here are his thoughts;
Is there a clear picture now of the sequence of events prior to the departure of Tony Pulis?
Not really, it is all hearsay and both parties have kept very quiet about the situation. The view is that it was a mutual agreement which in most fans eyes had a lot to do with the finances at the club which restricted Pulis in what he had visions of doing. Palace is a club that has had its financial history and the current owners are those that picked it up off the floor the last time. They know as well as anyone what a poor position the club were in when they took over in 2010. This is why they have a wage structure along with what they see as an appropriate transfer budget. If Pulis could not understand or appreciate the reasons why then the relationship would only have got worse in time so perhaps it was best it happened when it did. Not ideal two days before the season starts but arguably better at any stage during. Regardless, we are thankful for what Pulis came in and did for us last season and we move on.
How was the appointment of Neil Warnock received? And how has the club settled down after the early season dramas?
Many fans were looking above and beyond such an appointment which is perhaps why it was not met with an awful lot of excitement. For me, the appointment just fits. Neil Warnock left in 2010 and we could not financially keep him on the payroll as we headed towards our second period of administration. He did well for us in his time at Selhurst Park then before it was ended abruptly but the big question mark is that he has not really cut it as a Premier League manager before. I like Warnock and he likes the club and the area, it just works for us and he has been known to reveal that this is arguably the only position that he would have been interested in taking up. Since he joined we have not looked back. Unbeaten in the Premier League and at the time of writing sitting 9th. It simply could not have been any better, the last two wins against Everton away and Leicester at home were superb. There will be ups and downs as the season progresses no doubt but right now, we are a happy bunch.
How would you assess the current squad and where do you expect to finish in the table?
The squad that we have at the moment is arguably the strongest that we have had for several years now. This much is evident by being able to field a completely different starting eleven in the League Cup at home to Newcastle and run them close. The first eleven from last season has been built on solidly. The addition of James McArthur has been excellent business having now watched him play a few games for us. It remains to be seen if Zeki Fryers will be able to break into the first team but Martin Kelly from Liverpool, Brede Hangeland on a free, Kevin Doyle on loan from Wolves and the return of Wilfried Zaha from Manchester United just add strength throughout.
What are your own views on the FA's decision re the Hull City name change request?
Superb. I had my doubts whether the FA would have some compassion for the fans even though the campaign was excellent. As you know, we at TEB supported the campaign throughout and followed it closely. In the end there was only one decision that needed to be made and thankfully the FA did. If they didn't then it would simply have opened a can of worms but there had been previous with the decision to allow MK Dons to exist. That is what created the doubt in my mind.
Who are your 'form' players at the moment and have there been many changes in style and personnel since your great form last season?
In terms of style, I think we are set up in pretty much the same way and have built on that this season. We give up possession an awful lot, that is plain to see from the match statistics but our strength is winning the ball and turning that quickly into attack. It is not direct or long ball, it is effective for the personnel that we have. In terms of form players, there are plenty at the moment all playing well. If I was being pushed to pick one or two then it would have to be our captain Mile Jedinak for his two goals in the last two games, James McArthur for his tireless running throughout games and Yannick Bolasie for his goal at Everton and his exciting wing play. With Bolasie, you just do not know what he is going to do next.
Do you know much about the Hull City squad and are there any players you fear or rate highly?
The new Uruguayan striker Abel Hernandez looks an exciting, powerful player after scoring a few goals for you since joining. Curtis Davies at the back is an excellent defender but it's a shame Robert Snodgrass is injured so early in the season as I rate him highly. A real addition to your midfield.
Your score prediction and the type of game you expect?
With our recent form in mind and confidence at a real high, you will forgive me for expecting a decent result from this one. I would not be too disappointed with a draw as the KC is a difficult place to travel to get a result but we managed it last season. I am going to be bold and predict a 2-1 win for Palace.
Tell us a bit about your Group?
We started as a small blog site in June 2012 by fans, for fans and simply
have not looked back since. A twitter account began alongside the blog site which grew as well and within a year we moved to our own website after accumulating a handful of regular writers. Our first year on the new site we achieved hits of around one million and we have gone from strength to strength by continuing to provide popular news and views from not just Palace fans but we are proud with our interaction with opposition fans too. We are planning to evolve over the coming season with plenty more being worked on behind the scenes. It's certainly an exciting time for us. We are represented often on the EPL Roundtable podcast as well as a few other online football shows.
