Hull City have endured a tough couple of months and it is really starting to show, with frustration consistently bubbling away amongst their fans.
In the last month, they’ve seen their captain and vice-captain opt to not extend their contracts in the short-term, with a number of other first-team players also leaving Grant McCann high and dry ahead of the Championship run-in.
In addition to that, McCann’s side slipped into the bottom-three last weekend on the back of defeat to Charlton Athletic.

Now, the club have confirmed a contract extension for Daniel Batty, which on the face of things is good news.
However, it is just a single year extension for the 22-year-old, which is aggravating the fans, who are now expecting the midfielder to walk away from the KCOM Stadium as a free agent next summer.
The annoyance amongst sections of the club’s fanbase was evident in the replies to the news surrounding Batty, which we take a closer look at here…
A one-year deal for him to leave next year on a free. Hardly ‘good’ news, given his age and potential sell on value. It’s not even being negative anymore, it’s just how it is. This has happened 100 times before

I’m glad for him but it’s only a one year extension for a 22 year old but I suppose it’s better than what we are used to…..nothing #hcafc
