Either that or they've believed the Allam's Melton stadium hyoe, albeit, a tad early.

They better get a wriggle on if they're going to build it in time for the Premiership season.

Hull City are in the Premiership next year.

They owe Leeds Utd a beer or several.

Speaking of beers I hope all those City supporters have drunk themselves stupid and cleared off home before we head out to Newland Ave later.

 

The last thing I want to encounter is a load of tanked up soccer fans.

Hmmm... I'm hoping all of the proper City fans are bankrupt now so I stand an outside chance of a ticket.

Que Será, Será,

Whatever will be, will be,

I'm going to Wembley,

But only for the Challenge Cup Final and the Rugby League World Cup Semi-Final Double Header as Swindon Town lost to cheating, diving Brentford on penalties!

North Ferriby United have won promotion to the Conference North this weekend. Ground share with the Targers at Church Road perhaps?

I might suggest that on the Dull Daily Wail website.

I feel a meltdown coming on...

Sky Sports Jenna Brooks to Jake Connor regarding England selection : "Shaun Wane has said that he's spoken to you about why you were left out, he's also said he's told you what you needed to do more of, I'm interested, what do you need to do more of and did you do it tonight?"

Jake Connor : "I don't know, to be honest I haven't spoken to him."

Fergie retires. Apparently this new is worthy of blanket coverage.

In football terms, surely it is worth big coverage, isn't it?

 

I can't see anyone but a big-name manager getting 1/10th of the leeway that Ferguson has had.  The news says that Moyes is the favourite but there's a big difference between squeezing excellence out of a mid-ranking, hard-working squad and persuading excellent players to get away from fixing their hair in the mirror and performing on the pitch.

Without a doubt, so avoid sky sports news for the next week.

 

However, it's still only a news item though, and I got fed up of 15 minutes of it on the radio that's all!

The fact that you can't just create another Fergie is shown by the (ahem) varied careers those who've learnt under him have had. Bryan Robson's career being a particularly fine example of a determined, grafting and gifted player tutored by a focused, knowledgeable and strong-minded manager leading to an utterly woeful sequence of flops.

I can't see Ferguson retiring without a succession plan being in place though.

Nicked from elsewhere: First Thatcher dies, then Fergie retires. Somewhere out there is a Scouser with a magic lamp and only one wish left.
