Myhill aims to restore Tigers pride

BY foxsports • April 28, 2010

The Tigers saw their two-year stay in the Premier League brought to an end last weekend as they succumbed to the drop. Understandably, the mood within the camp is pretty sombre after a crushing disappointment, but belief that the club can bounce back remains intact. Long-serving keeper Myhill certainly feels that is the case and insists all the players are determined to ensure they never experience such lows again. He told the Hull Daily Mail: "It's a surreal experience, I struggle to describe it. I just feel numb. "It's something that will take a while to sink in. It'll probably not be until we get our fixtures for next year that it'll hit home. "I don't want to embarrass people but there were a lot of tears in the dressing room on Saturday. "We are a very disappointed group of players. There's people whose pride has been hurt and there's people whose reputations have taken a dent as well. "But it's up to us to roll our sleeves up and look to bounce back next year." While keen to make amends on the field, Hull have important issues to address away from the pitch before they can turn their attention to a promotion push. The club is currently operating under crippling debts, which could yet lead to administration. The Tigers could, however, be about to get a helping hand from the Professional Footballers' Association, with chief executive Gordon Taylor keen to ensure that Hull are not allowed to tread the same path as ailing South Coast outfit Portsmouth. He said: "It's just a watching brief at the moment. It's not going to be a Portsmouth situation we hope. "But clubs have got to be careful when they get to the Premier League that they don't over-commit themselves financially and that their Premier League fairytale doesn't turn into a nightmare. "We're keen to work with the club to make sure they survive intact and without any points deduction and without a fire sale of players."
