As a newcomer to RL, and someone who left Hull City under a cloud, according to the Tigers' owners not long since, could be a good listen.

Between 6 and 7 pm.

5000 season pass sales already is excellent news.

"Open hostilities" between the two Hull clubs! :lol:

Never mind Adam, I'm sure you tried your best.

Thought AP came over very well (as you'd expect from a media savvy bloke) and his business acumen was also very evident.
His conviction to the club and his obvious wish to get success, backed by investment across the whole set-up was well put over.
Thought the comments about the average age of the Leeds & Warrington squads was very interesting and food for thought!
At last I can see an exciting few years looming for FC - roll on next season, I can't wait :)

Royboy - Pearson is worried about Leeds and Warrington, the average age comment is designed to elevate FC higher..... IE get the fans believing !!

cant see why the average age of a clubs players would be a worry . i would have thought its how the players preform regardless of age that matters.

That was his point ;)
Both Leeds & Wire have squads with above average average ages!

Think it was in answer to those worried about Ellis, Galea, Prince (maybe) etc.

Yes, one or two on here with the wrong end of the stick. Pearson was offering his admiration of Leeds and Wire, not knocking them.

maybe RoyBoy could have offered more info - Just a thought!! ;)

mentioning the age you'd be inclined to think AP was having a pop - Not showing his admiration for Leeds & Wires. (I haven't listened to or read AP comments, Just RoyBoy's posting)

Enjoy the comments from George the "Hull FC pass holder for 30 years".

My ar*e, pass holder at Craven Park for the last 5 more like. That sad Rovers bleeder is always ringing Blunderside with negative stuff about Hull and they always let him on to spout his drivel.

Royboy, it's all your fault.

AP is doing a great job, well spoken and FC are in good hands.

AP sees Leeds and Wires as teams to aspire to, young old and alike

FC top 4 this year!!

He certainly says all the right things imo, and to date has backed that up with actions.

Haven't felt as positive as this for a good few years - next season will be a real yardstick for us. :)
