Real blood there, not the fake stuff those egg chasers used to cheat! *
Hull have signed another striker…I KNOW. And this time it’s the man with the longest name in football? (find me a longer one). Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink was a free agent after being released by Celtic and the Dutchman waited 3 weeks into the season to decide who to join. If you ask me he just fancied a longer holiday!
Vennegoor of Hesselink will be joining Craig of fagan, Jozy of Altidore, Kamel of Ghilas, Richard of Garcia, Caleb of Folan and Daniel of Cousins vying for a spot in Phil Brown’s starting 11.
Vennegoor of Hesselink has a pretty good strike record, scoring 76 goals in 157 appearances for PSV Eindhoven before joining Celtic and slapping in 34 in 78. Of course the Premier League will be a different proposition for the Dutch international, who has appeared for his country 17 times.
Seven forwards seems a little excessive but maybe not, before Vennegoor of Hesselink joined Hull they found the net four times in their first four Premier League matches this year, winning just one of those games.
