The bbc and it's employees are parasites so glad to see them all booted out.

But Viking FM are a set of cunts for saying Hull Tigers so also worth boycotting.

It's a cunt stand off from all sides.

Its a stand off that will continue until this shower of shyte sell up and do one. That's the truth of it and their vindictiveness will continue until they go.

Big mistake taking Swan on as an 'expert' commentator, having read his book and considering he was only at City 2 possibly 3 seasons, there were a hell of a lot more worthy locally born ex-players who could and should have had the job.
Swan was hardly a dedicated professional and his opinions when asked were baffling.
Burns or someone at RH was blinded by the Soccer AM running story that Swanny was 'their best friend in football' and they thought it would be a scoop to have him on.
His vocabulary and repeated 'as i say' from a proper Wessie White Shite was an embaressment, and I am afraid it affected Burns' radio commentary far too much, as their broadcasts became a place for their 'in-jokes and banter' which was often cringeworthy.
Burns and the Corporation have suffered for asking Ehab too many questions and spouting their opinions, but their double act needed sorting out.
Plus we don't have to suffer 'G' or Gollem as we know him by.

Genuine question - do you think they will sell up, Sunny old bean?

They were offered ca £100 million for the club at its peak and said no, so why would they sell up any time in the near future whilst the club is worth significantly less?

The Allans have derived a good source of profit from the club for nearly 6 years now, have two or three years of guaranteed high income and then can let the club be run off it's own league and crowd income, so why would they sell?

The fact is that according to their figures, rightly or wrongly, they will receive more money holding on to the club than they will selling it, simply because of the huge increase in income in the top two leagues - look at the transfer spending in the Championship and Premier League.. that's going to run for at least another 4 years until the Sky/BT deal is renegotiated.

Their actions since the '24 hours to be sold' statement tells us that it is not going to be sold.

They get a big lump of parachute money this season, they get a lesser amount next season (that will probably only just cover the running costs) and there is no third season. If we don't up this year, which looks likely, then I think they'll want out (which is probably why they're cashing in as much as they can at the moment).

I think what complicates predictions is that the Allans or Ehab change their mind - the almost completed sale and goodbyes in August last season, which could have been related to Allan's health issues at the time, then the spending splurge in September, then the signings in January and now the sell-off of players and use of bank loans and loan players - it all indicates a constant change in direction, business wise.

At the moment, it certainly looks like they're paring the budget right down, removing assets, will use some of the parachute payments to pay back their gift and then offset the reduced value of the club. For all their stupidity towards running the club, I can't see them writing off tens of millions. They've now put in close to £100 million, or certainly borrowed it against the club, so Hull have been hamstrung if it goes tits up. It's been an appalling way to run what should have been a sustainable business, to heap debt unnecessarily onto a club.

I think the 'doing what's morally right for me' interview was the the beginning of the end for RH/Burnsy.

Follows the vindictive, small-minded pattern...

Really enjoying the commentary online with TalkSport. A radio station I usually avoid like the plague.
Knowledgeable commment and analysis regarding the shambles of the way our club is run. No fear of falling out of favour with the owners.
Good, clear commentary. Informed input from Stuart Pearce. A million miles from the hopeless, hapless, clueless banter from Burnzee and Swanee.
Good riddance.

'Technical difficulties' blamed as Viking FM fails to provide first Hull City commentary.

In true Allam style they manage to fuck up.

Did anyone turn it off, then turn it back on again?

That'll be £2,500 thank you.
