An expeditious report, National old bean.

I haven’t read it, no offence. I’m assuming with our squad of 10 players and no fans at the ground watching we were shit. The score line would indicate that is the case.

The Cocoa Cup's semi-finals are next year, I gather. We could still make the FA Cup semi-final, provided we don't get drawn against Arsenal. Or Rotherham. Or Derby. Or Carlisle. Or anyone else.

Sums up all we knew anyway. The allams have fucked the club up well and truly. The experiment of using youngsters and getting shut of any quality players at the club is now showing through. There is only one way this club is going and that's downwards. The only saving grace would be new owners but by the time this was finalised we will be relegated anyway. A fine family legacy to the City eh allam?

No chance for Old Trafford to be in awe of our 1,000 travelling support again then. 

2005 Labour got 355 seats from 35.2 % of the vote on a 62.4% turnout. 2015 Tories got 331 seats from 36.9% of the vote on a 661% turnout. Left wing fannies moan the second one is sooooo unfair and we need electoral reform. But didn't utter a peep,about the first one.

A very sad night and it just shows you how far we have fallen since Steve Bruce walked away!

Like 99.9% of City fans, no. The interesting question is why so few went to a semi-final at Old Trafford.
We took 6,500 to an early round at Newcastle a few years ago, and over 5,000 to Anfield despite being beaten heavily at home in tbe first leg. That wasc as many as we got at home then. Boro took 9,500 for their semi-final there.

Not sure the using youth policy was entirely Atkins' doing. I am led to believe that it was a test of investment.

Hull are well and truly screwed. Looked tripe all last season and even worse this.

5,000 went to O/T for a League Cup game in the 90s. Les Thompson era and all that. It was when being drawn against a large club meant something different for the fans.

Unfortunately I never saw either the semis but those who did have another piece of City history in their bag. We lived off 1930 FA Cup semi-finalists for nearly 80years.

Might be wrong, but was the United semi where we couldn’t fill the bench and Tom Huddlestone played like Bobbby Moore at CB?

Other clubs still take big crowds against the bigger clubs when they have got better. Why do we take less when we have a better side? Answers on a postcard to " The Allams" competition.

Of course, but what else do you expect from people who are self confessed non-football fans. The club does sweet FA to assist fans to travel. I once had the chance to do Everton on a Tuesday night. I could get there but not back. Where was the 500 seat special? It wouldn’t have even entered their heads.

Last time I did an away game was West Ham. Bought my ticket from the now famous quality street tin.

Sure, if you really want to go you will go but I reckon the Hull case is different than most. Not many clubs have the same dogshit to deal with that we do.

Does anyone run 500 seater specials nowadays?

Probably not. The private rail companies don't want the hassle that used to go with it. They havnt got the old rolling stock now anyway. It used to be engine and around 12 coaches but they always put the old ones on in case of them being wrecked. With these companies and all the new rolling stock they don't want them bashed about.
