Slovakia where Hull City make their European debut. We boarded by the

friendlies that they have been playing. I think they have realised
that now when they get to the airport, they have a big European
competition to play in. Let's hope we can do people proud.
It is a monument as occasion, so what will be good for those who get
out there to be there for the first game and hopefully we will pualify
and give them more games to go to. If you think the management and the
players are keen, can you imagine players are keen, can you imagine
how the fans feel? 110 years of history and finally Hull City are in
Europe. We have waited a long time for this.
