It has been a familiar script as Robert Snodgrass scored but Hull City fell 3-1 to West Bromwich Albion on Monday in the 20th match of the season for both clubs.
Robert Snodgrass scored his seventh goal of the campaign and was generally effective in putting up peripheral fantasy points as well. His teammates, however, couldn't keep pace as the Scotland international's goal was their only one of the match. After opening the scoring, the Tigers saw Chris Brunt, Gareth McAuley and James Morrison score without reply as they continued on a trajectory that will have them relegated with plenty of the season remaining.

Despite an assist and a goal from Robert Snodgrass, Hull City were unable to hold off Everton and drew 2-2 on Friday at the KCOM Stadium.

Snodgrass has been the best player for Hull this season and once again proved this with an excellent performance against Everton. Hull took the lead after six minutes when Snodgrass delivered a corner that found Curtis Davies who flicked across goal and found Michael Dawson to headed home at the far post. After the goal Everton responded with pressure and found the equalizer just before halftime, as David Marshall rose to punch clear a corner but sent the ball into his own net. When the match restarted Snodgrass was once again in the action, tucking a free-kick into the upper left corner after curling an effort off the bar 10 minutes earlier. Unfortunately for Hull they couldn't hold the lead, as Everton leveled through Ross Barkley when he headed home a Leighton Baines cross just six minutes before the final whistle. The draw moves Hull off the bottom of the table, on 13 points, ahead of a trip to West Brom next Monday.

Hull City have activated a clause in the contract of Scottish midfielder Robert Snodgrass which will keep him at the club for an extra year.

Hull's top scorer this season (7) had reportedly rejected a contract offer and rumours were abound about his future. However, the risk that he would leave the club in the summer for free are now quelled and long term contract talks will resume in the New Year. Manager Mike Phelan said in a press conference ahead of GW18 that he expects the club to hold onto "Snoddy" unless a huge offer is tabled by another club. The playmaker was linked to Aston Villa,West Brom, West Ham, Middlesbrough and Newcastle in recent media reports.

Hull City hero Robert Snodgrass has reportedly turned down a contract offer from the club.

The Scot, who has been among their stand-out performers this term, is apparently unwilling to sign a long-term deal due to the continuing uncertainty at the East Yorkshire club. Snodgrass has six months left to run on his current deal but the club have the option of extending this by a further season. His contract situation also strips the club of any chance of earning a big fee for Snodgrass' services from a club in January, in spite of his 7 goals and 2 assists. Rumours linking him to Celtic for a £4m price tag are the most prominent of the bunch, but the Tigers will surely want to hold onto their marquee playmaker if possible.

Hull City overcame Championship leaders Newcastle United in a penalty shootout at the KCOM Stadium on Wednesday.

The regulation period of the game was dour at best. Between both teams, only two shots were registered on target in all. Hull's chances of progressing looked even worse in the 89th minute as Dieumerci Mbokani saw red for losing his head completely. The man on loan from Dynamo Kiev pushed and kicked at Jamaal Lascelles before lunging forward at him at his head. He may now face a 3 match ban. Meanwhile, the tie spilled into extra time and former Hull man Mo Diame put the Toon ahead. However, the Tigers showed some real grit and equalised a minute later. Henriksen's strike was spilled by the Newcastle 'keeper before Snodgrass knocked it in. Jakupovic amde two saves in the shootout as the Tigers won 3-1. Snoddy, Dawson and Huddleston were all on target as Newcastle missed 3 of theirs. Newcastle's finishing had been poor all night and they had looked the better side with 32 shots. However, their profligacy in front of goal cost them dearly.

It wasn't much but it was enough for a draw as Michael Dawson scored from a Robert Snodgrass free kick for a 1-1 draw.

Robert Snodgrass has been Hull City's best attacker this season by a fair distance. He did just enough on Saturday against West Brom to secure a needed point for,the home side. The results must still be better if City want to stay up but given that Albion has won twice in a row it was a solid point.

Robert Snodgrass yet again fell victim to being the outstanding player for an outclassed side as Scotland lost 3-0 to England.

At least while the result was the same, it all occurred in a different jersey as Snoddy represented Scotland against England at Wembley. Snodgrass proved his fitness again to fans playing 81 minutes while still coming off the back of an ankle injury which was meant to rule him out of this tie. He made a few good touches and continued his usual service with good deliveries to the extent that Danny Rose was kept occupied. Passing to Snoddy in one breakaway would have been the better option for Leigh Griffiths but he didn't utilise his open teammate. Hanley should also have finished a chance put on a plate for him by the Tigers' playmaker. David Marshall sat on the bench for the Scots while Shaun Maloney was not selected for the squad. Andrew Robinson also missed out as he is injured.

Mike Phelan played his cards brilliantly last weekend as Hull ended a streak of 6 losses in the league with victory over Southampton.

The inclusion of Robert Snodgrass on the bench was a bit of a surpirse, as the Scot had only just returned (early) to training from an ankle injury during the week. However, when needs must and desperate times call for desperate measures, it was to Snodrass who Phelan turned. Early injuries to Keane and Hernandez saw Snoddy take to the pitch midway through the first half. Phelan had only planned to give him 30 minutes, but in an hour of play, he scored once to cancel Austin's opener and assisted Dawson's winner. Both of those pivotal moments came within a two minute period where Snodgrass' guile and creativity won them the game. He finished well from Clucas' cross after holding his run to lurk near the spot. His curling powerful cross from deep seconds later was perfectly teed up for Dawson too while he had created a good opportunity for Maguire early on.

Hull City have confirmed via their official Twitter account that their Scottish midfielder Robert Snodgrass will be out of action for up to four weeks.

The Tigers confirmed that Snodgrass had damaged the ligaments in his ankle during the 2-0 defeat to Stoke in GW9. This will come as a huge blow to the side whose form has dipped and now find themselves in the relegation zone. The 29 year old winger is currently the team's top scorer with four goals and they will now have to cope without him for up to five games.

Hull City dropped into the bottom three after their fifth straight Premier League defeat.

The Tigers followed up last weekends’ drubbing by Bournemouth losing 2-nil at the KCOM Stadium to a resurgent Stoke City side. Pre-match Mike Phelan had been forced into a reshuffle after scans confirmed Andrew Robertson could miss up-to 8 weeks having sustained a significant calf strain. Sam Clucas dropped into left-back with Robert Snodgrass playing just ahead of him in a wider role, and it’s the Scottish international who will be the cause of major concern after coming off second best in a collision with goalkeeper Lee Grant. "He got stood on," revealed Phelan after the game. "He's got a bruised ankle and we will assess that in the morning." Snodgrass was seen leaving the stadium on crutches with his foot in a protective cast and the early signs ahead of game week ten do not look good.

Hull's caretaker boss Mike Phelan will be hoping that all of his club's off field ossues can be advanced or resolved in the next fortnight so the club can focus its efforts on the pitch.

A promising start to the season has begun to fade into memory after three successive defeats - to Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea. Two of those three defeats also featured a sending off which highlights just how tough a task those games were. Phelan himself will want his contract situation to be resolved. He is still a caretaker manager after 7 GWs and it can't be a comfortable situation. The club is also going through a takeover. Regardless, at 15th in the table, the Tigers need to buck up their ideas in a forthcoming set of favourable fixtures - Bournemouth (A), Stoke (H) and Watford (A).

Hull City under still-caretaker manager Mike Phelan have continuously churned out unlikely results this season. However, maybe there is too much luck involved for it to continue?

The Tigers have mainly got to thank Scotsman Robert Snodgrass for his contribution to this with 2 goals - he is also their main shooter with 12 shots. What's most striking is Hull's dependence on the long ball and Abel Hernandez's ability to compete for it. They lead the league for long balls attempted with 83 and more of their action comes in their own third than any other team. Amazingly, they also play the least football of any team in the opposition third. Their conversion rate of the (2nd last in PL) big chances they had points to how perilous their play really is. 6 goals is an overperformance for their play, and as defences wise up to their basic tactics, it's hard to see their success continuing.

Robert Snodgrass scored for the second consecutive week and the third time this season in Week 5.

It wasn't a strong outing from Hull City who have started the season in surprisingly good form. While it wasn't great from Mike Phelan's men overall the match saw another goal from Robert Snodgrass who has been Hull City's best attacker thus far with three goals in five matches including today's penalty and last weekend's set piece.

Hull City was on the other side of a dramatic late-game goal with Robert Snodgrass securing a point in a 1-1 draw with Burnley.

Snodgrass carried over his spectacular form with Scotland during the international break, where he scored a hat-trick in a World Cup qualifier against Malta just days ago, to score the equalizer against Burnley on the final play of the match off a free-kick in the 95th minute. Down 1-0 after Burnley's 72nd-minute goal, Tom Huddlestone drew a foul outside the box that set Snodgrass up for the last-second goal, his second of the season. Both Ryan Mason and Will Keane made their club debuts as substitutes.

Robert Snodgrass continued his fine start to the season by netting a hat-trick for Scotland.

The Scots were pitted against Malta in their opening World Cup qualifier and swatted the minnows aside after early struggles. "Snoddy" opened the scoring on the night when a cross from the right flank on the edge of the box curled over all the expecting foreheads to nestle in the top left hand corner. However, Malta drew level and held out until the interim with the score 1-1. Snodgrass spurned a great headed opportunity before later scoring a penalty and slotting home his side's 5th in a 1v1 with the goalkeeper. Hull fans and fantasy managers alike will hope that the 28 year old can maintain his form when the PL returns.
