Four Games And Still Hull Haven't Heard Of Oba Martins!

Martins: "Maybe I could find Hull with my satellite navigation! I would have no idea where it is on the map. I know nothing about the town.

"I did not know of them before I came to England, I'd never heard of them. It is quite strange when a side like that comes through the divisions - but that is football."

Newcastle have the big name stars and have spent millions on the quad that went to the KC Stadium on Saturday, but after FOUR attempts, United have yet to beat them.

Phil Brown shrugged off jibes from Newcastle United fans - he was taunted by travelling fans over his support of Sunderland - he admitted he "wouldn't be surprised" if the Premier League's relegation fight claims The Magpies.

Brown: "I wouldn't be surprised if Newcastle were relegated - I wouldn't be surprised if any team went.

"People say one's gone already, but that's a load of rubbish.

"I think it'll go to the wire for nine, possibly 10 teams. Everyone's still in it and fighting for their lives. Nobody's dropped off, and the team in 20th has still got a chance of surviving.
"With the amount of money Newcastle have spent compared to us, I'm satisfied to have won two and drawn two against them.

"If you're asking whether I'm happier than Newcastle at the moment, then of course I am."
