Hull press release appears to show that Mike Phelan still has 11 months in the job

Mike Phelan has been sacked by Hull City... or at least we *think* that's what's just happened.

Sure, it's being widely reported that he has indeed been given the boot, but the emergence of a press release which appears to have come from the club suggests the club might actually just be *planning* to sack him 11 months from now.

Look, it's quite clearly dated for December 3, 2017. Perhaps it's just a draft?

After all, it would be a bit harsh to sack a man that's not even had the chance to improve his squad in a transfer window. A man that, having won manager of the month in August, still had to wait until late October to be given the job on a 'permanent' basis.

Or perhaps the person responsible has done what many of us tend to do at this time of year and forgotten the date? At least they got the year right.
