Seems unusually quiet this thread. Both sets of fans nervous??

To be fair it is a tough one to call.

Golden point I reckon.

Charlie Birdsall and Keith Boxall to open the soft underbelly of HKR allowing the Imperious Sneyd to run things.

Hull by 18 in a fractious game smoothed over by moments of genius from Jake "the snake".

Squads named.

For Hull there is still no Shaul, so Wynne keeps his spot.

Taylor, Matongo and Paea are in and Westerman is named aswell. Thompson, Nzoungou and Washbrook are omitted from last week's 19 but Brown keeps his place. Not certain he will play, but I hope so. If not I expect we will see him on Monday.

For Rovers, Garbutt, Lunt and Jewitt are in.

All things being equal we should win this by at least a couple of scores, but strange things have a habit of happening in these games.

We should win but probably won't.

The Hull squad will be confident.  A bit more grunt up front back, Taylor, Paiea, Matongo, Welham.  Got to get forward and create that platform.

Will it be Albert on the bench again?  

 Record crowd forecast.

Rhino was an exceptional player who mainly due to playing for an unfashionable club didn't get further recognition. Similar current players would be Liam Farrell, only Box was classier a;; round and had a deft place kicking boot when needed. was my first 'idol' who I thought was fantastic and I always wanted to be like him when I started playing.

 

Hull by 20, we should rout the red and white bin dippers, if we don't and lose then w'we' should hang our heads in shame.

When I just read record crowd forecast I was rather sceptical so just popped over to the ticketing website. Bloody hell, didn't realise it had been selling that well! Assuming gray means sold out then you're quite right, almost whole place is full and the blocks not sold out only have a few singles dotted about. A full ground just adds to this excitement, this is gonna be a match for the ages I reckon!

Bloody Hell, I had no idea tickets had sold so well. Two fairly ordinary teams in some indifferent form and the place has around 50 tickets left if you click on availability in all areas. 😮

Should be a great atmosphere.

I went to get tickets this morning. Ended up with 2 unreserved ones for the west upper. There literally aren't two seats next to each other anywhere in the bottom bowl of the stadium.

I don't really know why this one has sold so well when derby attendances have been slowing falling in recent years, but we seem to be looking at comfortably over 20k. Maybe even upwards of 22k.

I'll have a whale of a time if we win. Trying not to think about if we lose. 😃

Just to compound matters, the ragtag crew will be dashing to the Whalebone straight after the game to watch the Pies v Stains

Could it be the fact that there hasn't been a Good Friday derby at the KCOM for a few years? There hasn't been one since 2015 and that game was the last attendance over 20k.
