    Here we go again. Double bluff, don’t name your team or formation we all know what it’s going to be….
    Can we scrap it out for a draw? Let’s hope so. The Wigan result feels to be heading our way again to me! Will it be tomorrow ?

    Hull City sent Luton Town Championship warning as 'special' claim made
    Luton Town have high hopes for the 2021/22 Championship season as opposed to Hull City at the moment

    Hull City will be looking to get their season back on track when they travel to Kenilworth Road to face Luton Town on Saturday afternoon.

    The Tigers currently sit in the bottom three of the Championship and have won just one of their last 12 matches, scoring only five goals in the process.

    Saturday’s opponents Luton, though, will provide Grant McCann’s side with an extremely difficult task; the two clubs are currently an almost complete antithesis both on and off the pitch.

    The Hatters have enjoyed a clear upward spiral in the last four seasons, earning back-to-back promotions from League Two to the Championship between 2017 and 2019, before then ensuring their status as a second-tier side in the two seasons that followed.

    Under Nathan Jones, Luton formed a clear recruitment strategy in the summer in order to progress from a team content to retain their Championship status, to one with ambitions of potentially achieving a top-six finish.


    Experienced professionals such as Henri Lansbury and Cameron Jerome, alongside promising young talents like Allan Campbell and Carlos Mendes have given Jones the platform to do exactly that.

    Luton are currently enjoying a run of one just one defeat in nine Championship matches, and although six of those results have been draws, it has not stopped in-form attacker Harry Cornick from discussing their Premier League ambitions.

    Speaking to Luton Today, he said: "Hopefully we’ll take Luton there (Premier League) this year, hopefully we’ll keep getting wins and who knows. There’s no bad eggs in the team, everyone wants each other to do well, and we know if we put our mind to it we can achieve something special.”

    For the Tigers, though, the mood around the club is an almost complete contrast. Chants calling for the return of former manager Steve Bruce in place of McCann suggest that patience with the club’s current boss is hanging by the thinnest of threads.

    After a League One title triumph last season, which is no mean feat given the struggles Sunderland have faced in the third tier, City should still be riding the crest of a promotion wave.

    But after the highs of last season, it appears as if they are back to square one, where a run of 16 defeats in 20 matches condemned them to relegation.

    McCann's side have conceded the fourth most number of goals in the division and with Barnsley the only team to have scored less, it is clear the Tigers are struggling in both boxes.

    However, amid all the doom and gloom, Saturday’s fixture represents an opportunity. The Hatters showed earlier in the season when they were beaten 5-0 at home by current strugglers Birmingham City that they are more than capable of producing an off day.

    If McCann’s men can inflict another one of those days on the Hatters, then perhaps it could provide City with the result they need to kick start their season into gear.

    Hats.

    Luton hosts the UK's biggest one day carnival.

    Upset over the lavish spending on London’s Peace Parade, servicemen began to riot between the 19th – 21st July 1919, arguing that money would have been better spent reintegrating soldiers after the war. During the riots, Luton Town Hall was burnt down and afterwards all of those that were involved received severe penalties.

    Luton is recorded in the Domesday Book by the name of Loitone with 750 of the population. Luton was founded in the 6th century during the reign of Saxons when they were dominant over River Lea. Historians write that this river was mainly the root-cause of Luton’s name.

    People from Bedfordshire are called “Bedfordshire Bulldogs” or “Clangers”. The term “Clangers” originates from a traditional local dish.

    The Clanger is a traditional Bedfordshire dish, a suet pastry with meat at one end, and jam on the other.

    The concept of afternoon tea was born in Bedfordshire.

    Wendy from Peter Pan was based on a real person. Wendy’s grave is in Potton. Her actual name was Margret Henley and the name Wendy came from mispronunciation. Her dad also inspired Long John Silver. He was the poet W. E Henley. Both of them are buried at St John’s Church.

    Former Luton Town and United States international goalkeeper Ian Feuer played one of the predators in the film Aliens vs Predator: Requiem.

    Britain’s first hot air balloon landed in Bedfordshire.

    We can’t score regularly enough to compensate for our piss poor defending.

    Luton 4-0 City

    Hopefully then McCann gets ****ed off and we get a manager in who can turn this squad into a team capable of staying up.

    You don't need to worry, McCann has just said in his presser that "The formula is working" so everything is going swimmingly.

    Gunna be another shocker isn't it. McCann too stubborn to change anything, starting 11, formation and tactics utterly predictable, Luton will score at least 1 from a corner, nullify us in attack and walk off with a comfortable 2 or 3 nil win.

    Is the starting 11 predictable? Obviously it'll be 433 but apart from the defence and probably KLP I'm really not sure who'll play. We chop and change all the time.

    “The Formula works for us” What! Against Preston?
    Completely delusional Grant. Your record in the Championship proves that.
    No improvement until he’s gone I’m afraid. Tactically inept. Can’t see anything but a comfortable Luton Town win.
    Prove the Formula works for us on Saturday then Grant!
