    Or having a home game called off because a couple of roof panels blew off the West Stand the night before and 'no-one would repair them'
    Players car sharing to away games.
    Never mind mirrors in the toilets, the piss house behind Kempton had no lights in it for ten years.
    Before the 70/71 season, Div 2 ( Championship today) we had the Terry Neill appeal begging to fans to donate a pound so he could strengthen the team. This followed a pre season friendly Watney Cup game at home to Man U which attracted over 34,000.
    Could you imagine the outcry if Grant McCann pulled a stunt like that now ?
    But no- one was offended then.

    Yes, I should have been offended when I chipped in to that. And absolutely outraged when I joined the Bob A Goal Club. Remember that thermometer type thing on the North Stand showing the progress of funds? Which was rather slow in rising. And having a meltdown when we got together In The Well to sponsor Brian Marwood's first kit.
    Now we have fans who won't pay the cost of 3 pints to watch their team on ifollow and ask for links to free (illegal streams). Any potential buyers will be impressed with a fan base like that I am sure.

    Remember it well matey. We even offered to pay Keith Edwards pay increase, remember that ? putting a proposal together for the club to consider ? Where were the club at the time ? Bottom half of the old 4 th division. We should have been on the phone to the Samaritans.

    Yep, I was also there and part of all that in decades past!
    Totally different times though. Things were very different back then; some things ('societal') have changed very much for the better, some things absolutely have not.
    As posted earlier, it really is a 'funny' one, this whole situation with the Allams. As others have said, it's been a continuing drip feed of twatishness for years now, and so still it continues with their arrogance and lies. Different people had different tipping points; mine was the arena debacle - what sort of twat pulls a stunt like that in the manner they did? It was one thing commandeering the hall for the Academy (in my opinion not right), but quite another thing with the way it was done. For the first time ever, and that is saying something, I was actually embarrassed to be a City fan for a while as I was associated with such twattery.
    Owners / Chairman like Robinson, Pearson, Duffen understood and got it. The Allams don't and never will. And unfortunately Ehab is just one of those characters that, for many, when you see and hear him talk you just want to .... well, you know, such is his arrogance, stupidity, propensity to lie, etc.
    A big mistake the Allam's made is not putting in place a CEO / COO or whatever and just letting them take the limelight and get on with running the club on their behalf (of course they would still have final say on major decisions). The club should be doing all it can, now more than ever, to make supporting the club as easy, cool, attractive, as possible, to re-build all bridges, to entice & snare support, etc etc. Robinson, Pearson, even Duffen have shown what is possible when you get it even something like 'right'. It will never happen with Ehab remaining to the fore. He said they would do this (appoint a COO), but that turned out to be just another load of BS.
    Anyway, nothing new there. We just go round in circles with this topic.

    Getting someone into run things is what Delia Smith and her husband have done at Norwich.
    This is the 16th consecutive season they have sold out their season tickets, 22,000 of them. And they aren't cheap, cheapest one behind the goals are £499 and OAPs cheapest, again behind the goal, £325. Since 2008 their record is identical to ours, 5 seasons in PL, 1 in League 1, the rest in the Championship. Yet their crowds have hardly fluctuated. In fact when they were relegated to League 1 they went up. In that time they have built a fantastic training complex and were the first club to get a circular virtual reality training aid costing £750,000. All that with owners only worth £30 million.
    Shows what is possible with right owners backed by the fans. Of course they have one advantage, no rugby clubs to turn to for easy trophies and Cup Finals when things aren't going well.

    Castro banging on about Norwich again. Can't we raise his bus fare between us to send him to Norwich?

    Giving an example of how to run a club. Which do you think is run better? Now go back to whatever you do to occupy your time in the Southern Hemisphere.

    Couldn’t agree more but they do have a lot better history than us! First division and PL.
    plus when they went down in 2014? Under Hughton they were in real **** st for awhile. Think Maddison was a life saver and a couple of others they sold.

    Hull City is the best run club FACT.
    I enjoy watching water going down the plughole in the opposite direction.

    48 hours have gone by since Smith was almost joining, always wonder why these things take so long when they’re seemingly so close. Does the club deliberately wait a set amount of time before announcing a player?

    Hearts wanted him initially but they got Ginnelly instead.

    Snelgrove has had a loan bid from Hamilton in Scotland.

    I don't think we can sign Smith until we loan somebody out, McCann said on Radio Humberside Sportstalk last night that clarifiction from EFL had been received, and if we loan a player out we can then bring in a player on loan.

    James Scott's confidence must be rock-bottom now. City don't want him, St Mirren don't want him (for whatever reason) and now he seems to be the one holding up the transfer in of somebody who's reckoned to be better. Who'd be a footballer eh?
