I'm no fan of Hull Tigers but that scoreline today has to be the greatest result I could have wished for.

 

Hull City 6-0 Fulham

 

Absolutely bloody brilliant. :sarcastic:   :biggrin:   :dancer:  :D

As Butch Harry said to Camp Freddy 'Fulham, bit dodgy at the moment'.

“No-one on earth is allowed to question my business decisions - I won't allow it,” he said today in an interview with Sky Sports News.
 

So, presumably it's only a matter of time then. Really looking forward to the outcome of this.

Went to Man City last night as a neuteral and thought it was excellent.  Other clubs/sports could learn alot, tickets went on sale 1pm last Friday, arrived with me on Saturday morning with a stack of information about getting there and layouts etc.

 

Yesterday afternoon got an e-mail saying basically we notice this is your first visit here's a stack of information that may be of interest. 

Then thought the "City Square" set up was excellent.

 

Never really been big on the "match day experience" but was really impressed.

Yes.

 

It's the thin end of the wedge.  Clubs should never be renamed.

 

Fans of Newton Heath would be up in arms at the very idea.

Theyre not even being  renamed all that's happening is that their informal name is becoming their formal one. Ffs

 

One would have thought they'd have better things to get upset about

You would have thought so but apparently not.

 

Changing from "Hull City AFC - The Tigers" to "Hull City Tigers" is an actual insult to everybody who has ever even thought about watching a Hull City match, their family, their friends and their pets.

He just wants them to be known as "Hull Tigers", dropping the word "City", so there can't be any reason for thinking they're anything to do with Hull City Council, against whom he seems to have a long standing vendetta.

 

All because he thought the Council should give him the stadium because he saved the football club.

I suspect you're not far off the mark.
