Would we have stayed up had we have stuck with Mulenstien?

BBC Sport

Hull scored six second-half goals to thrash Fulham and go seven points clear of the Premier League relegation zone.

It was the Tigers' biggest-ever victory in the Premier League.

Ahmed Elmohamady started the rout with a 15-yard shot before Robert Koren swept in from Yannick Sagbo's cross and George Boyd drove in a third.

Tom Huddlestone thumped in his first goal since April 2011, Matty Fryatt tapped in a fifth and Koren prodded in the sixth from close range.

Tigers among the goals
Hull had scored seven goals in eight home games before Christmas but have now managed eight in their last two matches at the KC Stadium.

Huddlestone had promised not to cut his hair until he ended his goal drought. His long-delayed trim started within seconds of him scoring as he ran to the touchline so a member of Hull's backroom staff could snip off a lock of the midfielder's hair.

It was only the fourth occasion this season that Steve Bruce's side have managed more than one goal in a game and it doubled their previous best Premier League win, a 3-0 victory over West Brom in October 2008.

After a five-match winless run, and with games against Liverpool and Chelsea to follow, it could be a pivotal result for the buoyant Tigers.

Nothing against Rene but that squad, from its characters to their application, fitness and motivation was making repetitive replies that aren't funny! . He would probably earn a point or 2 more than Felix but also take a few 6-0 batterings too

I very much doubt it. Rene was a decent, experienced coach but we'd already started down the slippery slope on his watch.

We would have stood a better chance of staying up with Rene.
But once Magath had sunk his teeth into Fulham’s neck, any chance we may have had went down the toilet.

Nothing in any of the records says Rene would have kept us up.

Jol record 13 games 10 points (3 points last 6 games)

Rene record 13 games 10 Points. (1 point last 6 games)

Sacked when bottom at 26 games and 20 points and 4 points short of 17th

Magath record 12 games 12 points (8 points last 6 games) Form wise we were 16th for last 12 games.

Finished 19th 4 points short of 17th

No but we probably would have if we'd got Pullis in. 

Out of interest - How may on here would have taken Pullis if it meant staying in the Prem.  Or, to put it another way: Premier League v integrity.

The overriding feeling as an outsider seemed to be the lack of fitness and motivation throughout those first 26 games. It was downhill from Jol and Rene couldn't find the brakes , throwing Cole and Tunnicliffe straight into a huge game showed he didn't know what he was doing and just thought a United bias would improve us

The logic in Felixs appointment was clear. The dictator style authoritarian leadership to kick a few behinds and improve fitness. It failed miserably when he used odd methods, bizarre attempts at leadership and without a window, used the kids to shake things up and was a failure waiting to happen. His championship start exposed him as a woeful fit for the squad, our club and this league

Probably a word substitution put in by the mods from back when half the posts consisted of that a couple of seasons ago.

In a thread pertaining to THAT season, that word had to crop up somewhere
