Brown to make big decisions

Phil Brown admits he has some 'big decisions' to make, but insists he 'can't go wrong' if he retains the support of the Hull City. Reports have placed the Tigers boss under pressure following a lacklustre run of form which has seen the club slip to second bottom in the Premier League. Hull were also thrashed 4-0 at home by Everton in the Carling Cup last week before being crushed 6-1 at title contenders Liverpool on Saturday. Brown, who led the Tigers into the top flight for the first time in the club's history, has been assured his job is safe by chairman Paul Duffen. And though he acknowledges everyone at the KC Stadium is currently 'suffering', he believes he can turn the Tigers' season around by acting decisively. "Obviously we are all suffering at the moment and people have called for change," Brown told the club's official website. "We are still in a position higher than we have ever been in our careers in terms of the history of Hull City. "We are still proud of the fact we are hosting 25,000 at the KC, have 21,000 season-ticket holders and proud of the fact we had 3,000 fans chanting my name, and Hull City, at Liverpool on Saturday - even in the face of defeat. "With that kind of support I can't go wrong. Obviously you are going to have your critics, but now is the time for strong men to make strong decisions and I am going to have to make some big decisions."
