A hangdog expression and a bad temper are two famous characteristics of Gregory House in the acclaimed U.S. medical show House.

Played by British acting legend Hugh Laurie, House is a disgruntled doctor who hates his job and hates his patients and colleagues more.

The other week I was watching Hull City Manager Phil Brown give his thoughts on the Tigers 6-1 loss away at Liverpool and I couldn't help noticing how very similar the former Bolton Wanderers assistant was to the fictional character of House.

Brown had the same forlorn look on his face, most likely wondering where the next win was going to come from, as House does when he gets a particularly annoying patient.

He also has developed a rather bad temper, deciding to slate his players in the press, most notably Caleb Folan who joined Middlesbrough on loan.

It wouldn't be so bad if it was just the mannerisms, but Brown's designer stubble look and starting-to-grey hair are making him look even more like the Hugh Laurie character.

Finally the eyes, just look at the eyes of Laurie above and those of Brown and you will see where I am coming from.
