Hull City had a January transfer window to forget recently, with both Jarrod Bowen and Kamil Grosicki heading for the KCOM exit.
The Tigers have pulled off some memorable wins so far this term, with solid victories away to promotion hopefuls Fulham and Nottingham Forest.
Inconsistency has blighted the Tigers season, though, and any hopes of replicating the 2015-2016 play-off success are seemingly slowly disappearing.
A mastermind to City’s success over the 2013-2016 period was current Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce, who guided the Tigers to automatic promotion in 2013 and play-off success in 2016.
As well as two promotions, Bruce also kept Hull in the Premier League in the 2013-2014 season, seeing the Tigers to a 16th place finish.
City had some memorable players at the KCOM during Bruce’s four-year tenure, and here we have taken a look of three players from that era who would walk straight into the current Hull side…
The Scot joined the Tigers back in 2014 and despite suffering a knee injury that would keep him out of action for the first season and a half, Snodgrass would go on to endear himself with the Tigers faithful.
Snodgrass made 54 league appearances for the club, scoring 14 goals and chipping in with 10 assists during his time at the KCOM.
The 32-year-old would leave for West Ham United in 2017 and have a successful loan spell at Aston Villa over the 2017-2018 season.
With the Tigers losing Bowen and Grosicki in January, Snodgrass would no doubt walk straight back into his former side, given the Tigers some much-needed creativity out wide following the January departures.
The current Manchester United captain joined the Tigers back in 2014, and it would be hard to believe that anyone would argue with the 26-year-old walking into the current Hull side.
The England international turned out 75 times for City and chipped in with three goals across his three seasons at the KCOM, before joining Leicester City in 2017.
After two impressive seasons with the Foxes, either side of a solid World Cup campaign with England, Maguire joined Manchester United over the summer of 2019 and has since been made Red Devils captain.
You’ll never get 13/13 on this Hull City quiz!
Another current Premier League defender to make this list, and it is no surprise to see the current Liverpool man here.
Robertson turned out 115 times for City managing five goals and 10 assists before joining Liverpool back in 2017.
Since then the 25-year-old has gone from strength-to-strength and is arguably one of the best left-backs in Europe at the moment.
Last season Robertson racked up 13 assists in 48 appearances in all competitions as the Reds, won the Champions League and finished second in the Premier League.
It’s a case now of when Liverpool win the Premier League this term, and there is no doubt Robertson would walk straight into this current Hull City side.
