I do not think so.

The 3-point system means that the value of games are different.

The value of draw games is 2 points; while the value of non-draw games are 3 points.  This is extremely illogical.

If the number of draw games should be reduced and attacking play should be encouraged, that should be done in a logical way.

 

By the way, the 3-point system is adopted by also Hockey (not Ice Hockey).  I am, of course, opposed to the 3-point system in Hockey.

Football is not a subset of logic. Who cares whether it is logical or not? It just means better games. There is hardly a league anywhere in the world that hasn't adopted the Jimmy Hill 3 point for a win, 1 point for a draw. It works.

annoying person,

 

If it's good enough for the Premiership (Wendyball), then a modifiied version is good enough for the RUGBY LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP, I assume you follow Rugby League?

 

3 points for a win, 2 points for a draw, 1 point for a defeat less than 12 points.

 

Ice Hockey has a similar points system.

 

Do you know more about Field Hockey enough to provide us with the scoring system?

Having a wander down to the KC this lunchtime. A pal has lent me him and his daughter's Hull Tigers season passes so I'm taking the lad with me.

 

I'll let you know if I manage the full 90 mins without falling asleep.

 

Hull Targers 0 Man Utd 3 is my prediction.

Far be it for me to have a foot in the Allam's camp.

I just hope it's a case where neither side comes out with any credit.

It'd be interesting to see the not so good doctor walk away taking his money with him in one of his usual sulks.

Aye, not bad for a game. of soccer.

Tigers seemed unable to hold onto the ball. Individually, Man. U were far superior but City should have at least got a draw in the last couple or three mins.

A reasonable afternoon's entertainment.

Heard a couple of huge roars from the KC as the first two goals went in.

 

Nearly as loud as the roar of laughter that came over from the stadium when Man. Utd. took the lead.

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 way back for fruitcake Allam?

“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.

 

Was it Violet Elizabeth who said "I'll scweam and scweam and scweam!"

 

(With a lithp, obviouthly...)

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

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.
