    When we acquired the football club we made it clear we would run it in accordance with sound and proper business principles and procedures.

    We have not and will not deviate from those principles.

    Therefore although we fully appreciate the supporters' and media's desire for information we can not comment on the manager's position at the present time. We will however provide further information when we are able to do so.

    Having listened to media speculation today over funds not being available in the January transfer window, we reiterate that funds were available as previously stated by us.
    We also confirm the club has terminated the consultancy agreement with Adam Pearson without notice and without compensation.

    We are also aware of speculation about the club being up for sale. We can categorically confirm there is no truth in that rumour and we are fully committed to Hull City and its future.

    Assem and Ehab Allam (camel lovers)

    Basically, we are ****ed! If the mental camel lovers think they can do a better job of running this club without Pearson then we really are in trouble.

    I dread to think what will happen next!

    That bit about funds in January is a fiddle, there were funds available, so long as Nick signed players that were on **** all money, any deal that involved paying a player the going rate for a quality player at this level was not sanctioned.

    I think Assem is bonkers. Ehab is probably more balanced, but it's his dad who calls the shots.

    They're used to getting their own way and they are ****ing clueless when it comes to running a football club.

    I think now they've shown their true colours and gone on this massive power trip, I'd rather they did sell up. Clearly they are going to be interfering with this kind of thing as long as they are here and I can't see who else is going to want to come here, that goes for managers, players and any replacement for Adam, if they even wanted one.

    Sorry but I don't believe a word of what they say. Yes they did bail us out but have they shown any real committment is strengthening the squad? I don't think so. Words are cheap and have no substance unless backed up by action.
    I know I am being negative but can't help feeling we are in for another 10 years of 'nothingness' to look forward to!!!

    I bet the allams aren't even aware how much they are alienating themselves.

    I give up now game over I layed me cards out. Can't be arsed with football anymore when all our hopes are pinned on clueless ****s like these. I'll be back when it's a game again, as at the minute I feel like I'm sat in a shopping centre cheering apples sales on to beat John Lewis.

    ..with regards to 'having a long term commitment to the club' do we believe this?.. I'm particularly asking you OLM, as I believe it was you who posted they were/are looking to sell?.. I'm not having a pop just desperately searching for ANY sort of clarification.

    Regards,
    An extremely worried Hull City supporter

    The comment I posted yesterday about the club being up for sale came from someone in the OSC who was at the KC yesterday, based on the statement issued today, you'd have to assume that they were wrong and it's not for sale.

    I would suggest that they altready have deviated from What they say on the first 3 lines. PR shambles and no way back for the Allams.

    As for the rest of the statement is there any wonder that the lawyers are now involved.?

    Both are bonkers and little to choose between the pair. Ehab has no interest in sport full stop and thats from his own mouth hence why having him involved at all with Hull City has been pure madness. They wont recover from this fall out and the mood of the players last night @ the OSC night was one of Must ring my agent next. Was there any wonder why Jack Hobbs did not turn up or was it down to his injury ? No Nick or Adam either but who could blame them. It was like trying to be cheerful at a funeral. But i still think there is far more going on than is being said. We all need Nick and Adam to have there say. I care less for anything that the Allams spin doctiors come up with anymore. As for Billy Davies rumour,, <doh> ffs :emoticon-0106-cryin
