What's the best start to a season for a team that went on to get much worse and get relegated by the end of the season? In the EPL, Hull City is currently 15th (tied with 16th place Blackburn on points, games played, and goal differential and Hull City is ahead with 1 more goal scored if that is the next tiebreaker like I have sometimes seen) and 4 points above 18th (the top relegated team), but at https://www.bigsoccer.com/forum/showthread.php?t=965090, kevbrunton predicted they will get relegated and with 3 of their remaining 6 games against teams currently in the top five relegation is possible. Hull City is at Sunderland next and Sunderland will pass Hull City with a win. Hull City got off to a great start with 6 wins (including at 4th place Arsenal), 2 draws (including hosting 6th place Everton), and only 1 loss albeit a 0:5 home loss to 10th place Wigan Athletic. Hull City's tenth and eleventh games were acceptable losses, 0:3 hosting Chelsea and 4:3 at Manchester United. That started Hull City on a run of 1 win, 6 draws, and 11 losses in 18 games which is almost half the season. That ended with a March 4 win at Fulham, and after that Hull City has two losses and two draws. If Hull City barely survives it will be thanks to their great start and the opposite of Fulham barely surviving last season due to their great finish.
