Talk about rose-tinted spectacles! The idea that Hull's good form coincides with Chris Martin's starts is laughable.
The truth is that Hull's shockingly bad run of form began with the introduction of Chris Martin into their team.
He made his debut on 15th Sept in a 2-0 win at Home against Ipswich, albeit just in a 3 minute Substitute Cameo at the end of the game.
He then started in Hull's next 7 games, which saw a run of 5 defeats and 2 draws.
He was dropped to the bench for the next 3 games, which yielded 2 wins and a draw.
He then started the next 2 games, yielding a loss and a draw.
Not surprisingly, he gets dropped again, for the next 6 games, and hey presto!, the team gets back on track with
5 wins and one draw.
Frazier Campbell gets injured, so CM starts the next game at Home to Relegation near-certs Bolton, and
Hallelulah!, he finally manages to score a goal - the fourth in a 6 nil romp.
In total, Chris Martin's 16 starts for Hull has yielded 4 wins, 4 draws and 8 defeats.
In the League, he has 15 starts for 4 wins, 4 draws and 7 defeats - so just 16 points have been gained in
the 15 League games that he has started. They've got 34 points when he hasn't started.
He has scored just one goal in his 20+ appearances, and that came in a 6 goal Team demolition of Bolton.
He's been eligible to play in Hull's last 30 games - this is Hull's Results sequence in the 16 games he's started :-
LLDLLDLLDWLWDLWW 4 wins/4 draws/8 losses
This is Hull's Results sequence for the 14 games he could have started, but didn't :-
WWWDWDWWWWWLDL 9 wins/3 draws/2 losses
Are you seriously suggesting that Hull are a better team when he starts?
