A few years ago, the Finnish ambassador to the UK was up in Hull to unveil a plaque, regarding the estimated 300,000 Finns that passed through Hull, emigrating to the US and Canada in the late 19th century up to 1924 - they came into Hull, then trained to Liverpool or Southampton for the Atlantic crossing. And the building where the Tigers Lair is or was located, was the original platform building built for their train journey.

Most Finns learn Swedish as a second language. A famous Swedish saying translates as 'it's better to have a Finn round your neck than a Turk up your harris'.

Forgotten histories. This forum used to be interested in them before the Allans became the only subject topic permitted.

Along with Campbell ? Is a 'City know what they are doing shock' headline due ?

No, Larsen isn't JJ and Campbell isn't the same Campbell from 2007-2008.
It's a team of cheap shit.

I think City (Tigers) know what they're doing OK, and it's exactly what they are doing that fucks me off so much.

Heart ripped out of the club, divided fan base, no future plan, no communication, millions squandered or hived off, pariah club, and most of all the best ever opportunity we had of setting up a bright future, well and truly wasted. 

Fuck the short term we will build a 1000 year Hull City Reich

Now, more so than ever before, a club with Prem aspirations really has to know what it is doing and really want to do it.

Maybe extremes, but that Dembele chap being offered at €150m just show how difficult it is and is going to be. On a smaller scale and in the 2nd half of the Prem, reading that Andre Gray is going to Watfart for £18.5m - twice the original buy price. Gray wasn't that great a div 2 footballer and would be a tolerable sub in my view even at Watfart. Who knows what wages he will be on.

If we had hung on last season I think this year would be another version of torture anyway.

What's the answer?

Build up from below, like a Southampton. Or maybe don't bother. The so called "big clubs" in div 2 have no idea what it's like in the Prem now. Wednesday, Forest, Leeds - all hanging on to black and white photos like it was yesterday.

I think it's done TBH. No one having much fun these days at football, made worse by the shrieking of wannabe celebs like Jenas and Savage. They were shit on the field and are shit in a casual shirt and a throw away line.

Standing and pay on the day is the only way to entice some back now and that crashed and burned a long time ago.

Soon be Xmas. 

Bunkers Hill - See you in the next life

Larsen is the same age as Pedersen was in 2007-08 and he was a very useful Viking to have in the team then.

Its quite simple. Ehaw made one statement a good few weeks ago. In it he said that there would be significant investment in order that the club could have a good chance of promotion. What we have seen is all the gold then the silver sold off leaving us with the bronze. In place of the best sold we have had fee transfers and loanees. Significant investment my backside. That first half last Saturday wasn't in the least bit suprising. It was a tub of shyte. It may be we sneaked a point when we should have been buried, but where, we ask, is all the money to buy these significant signings. Lies and bloody more lies and no statement of intent at all. And they wonder why people are totally pissed off.

Sunn, I'm sure I have posted this little gem before. Many years ago, a mate pointed out a guy the other side of a noisy pub. "How do you know he's lying?" - Dunno - "Coz his lips are moving".

I was given a massive reduction this year on my season pass membership whatever. Instead of 40 a month for prem football, it is now 39. No more. As much as the Allams, football et all. Neymars agent just took as much out of the game in one deal than the Allams have taken back.

The real final straw? Cunts stood up applauding Kane. I wanted to kill the bastard for scoring a hat trick. And to be reprimanded " there are ladies present " after my fucks sake what's this shite.

I await the score and attendance thread to post my 14000 tops.

Couldn't agree more about Pedersen. Unfortunately, Larsen is a different sort of player.

Using faeces as lube whilst you had a public Tom Hank in your seat was what caused the rebuke, Pot old bean. Suffice to say, we let bygones be bygones and continued to watch and enjoy the 7-1 thrashing..

We fluked a point last week,doubt that will happen often.Knobhead has trousered the money and replaced the little bit of quality we had with freebies.divided and fucked the support off,still insists on hull city tigers everywhere and has fucked the kids and coffin dodgers over.We have wasted all the premiership money on huge wages instead of buying the ground and investing in the future.fucked it up big style.

With last week's point at Villa the season is shaping up like last, we put Leicester to the sword (lol) robbed Swansea, then took another point from our 3rd game (Village People) before our season ended on Sept 10th.

I'm afraid it looks like a miserable season with a dozen or so other clubs with a lot more hunger for the top than we can muster.

I do wish they would fuck off, now there's an understatement

Stream for today anyone?
