Welcoming Back The Allams. Cautiously

History has ended. We have won. We may not have achieved the ultimate goal of replacing the Allams with a new Srivaddhanaprabha, however all the other goals of the campaign which started with “No To Hull Tigers” have been achieved, more or less. They have done what we demanded. The stealth rebrand is over. We … Continued

2019/20 Season’s Expectations

What are my expectations for this season? There are far more unknown quantities than known quantities. Is George Long, assuming he will be our first choice goalkeeper, good enough for the Championship? He conceded 14 goals in 6 appearances last season, but given the type of games they were – cup games and end of … Continued

How Much Do You Still Care?

It’s less than a week to Hull City’s first game of the season against…hang on, I don’t actually know this…Swansea. The idea that I wouldn’t know who the first game of the season is against, even in my most-disconnected of City-following days would have been preposterous. I know that we’ve signed a few players, but … Continued

Hull City AFC – In 10 Years Time

I remember those dark days of 2020, when Hull City were again flirting with relegation from the Championship. Amazingly, the Allams through their marine generator business had managed to strike some interesting acquaintances – quite where this world-famous acquaintance got the £70m that the club was valued at was another question, but it looks like … Continued

My Attempted World Cup Boycott

A long time ago I said I was boycotting both the Russia and Qatar football World Cups, partly because I believe that they were corruptly rewarded by FIFA, but also because I fundamentally disagree with the way both countries are run, and neither should have a prestigious tournament awarded to them, with the subsequent ability … Continued

Keep On Protesting

I welcome the meeting last night offered by the Allams, and also thank HCST for their continued efforts in trying to bring a positive way forward – not just by attending this meeting but their repeated attempts at dialogue with the club. Whilst the more vociferous protesters may have forced the Allam’s hand, if it … Continued

Should There Be A Truce?

I’m an optimistic person.  I wrote to the Hull Daily Mail in 1996 arguing that if everyone in the city got behind the club, that we could end up in the Premier League.  I still believe one day that we will be playing Barcelona in Europe. Alas, as per seemingly fucking usual, my mind is … Continued

No Need To Panic – Yet

Prior to the season, it seemed many were expecting some kind of vague promotion push, or at least for us to be challenging for play-offs. Seven games in, a few are apparently now believing that we are in a relegation battle. 7 points from 7 games. Relegation form so far #hcafc — 3 O’Clock At … Continued
