McShane loving life at Hull City
SOCCER THINGS GOING WELL FOR KILPEDDER MAN
KILPEDDER MAN Paul McShane has admitted he is loving life at Hull City so much that the first three months of his time there have flown by.
The former St. David’s student joined the Tigers at the start of the season from now managerless Sunderland and has played in every game since, occupying the right back spot for the high-flying Premier League side.
As regards whether his stay at the KC Stadium could become permanent, the former Manchester United man says he hasn’t had time to think about it yet.
‘I haven’t even thought about the future because the three months I have been here have absolutely flown by.
‘I’m enjoying my time here and it has been good for me.
‘Things are going well and hopefully that will continue.’
Speaking before Hull’s 2-1 victory over Gareth Southgate’s Middlesbrough, the defender said: ‘I’m just looking forward to the game coming up.
‘People are saying that we’ve gone six games without a win now, but I don’t think that is something that is concerning the lads.
‘Two of those games were against Chelsea and Manchester United, two of the top sides in the league. We were disappointed not to get a win against Bolton because that was a great opportunity for us.
‘But we’ve drawn the last three, so you can look at it as three games unbeaten. I think the lads are disappointed that we haven’t picked up a win, especially at Stoke.
‘There is no real panic, but it would be nice to pick up a win against Middlesbrough.
The man that McShane was marking on Satur- day was none other than England international Stewart Downing and Hull’s number 17 was relishing the prospect.
‘I’ve played against him a few times before. We won’t be new to each other and I know he has two good feet.
‘He’s also got pace, so it will be a good test for me.’
Hull City is currently sitting in sixth place in the Premier League, with a total of 26 points from 16 games.
