Another expeditiously produced report, National.

I never thought I’d say I don’t really care. But I don’t other than checking teletext whilst watching the cricket.

Is the club for sale for a pound yet?

Don't care like I used to ..... but still watched it yesterday ..... and still a little pissed off about the result.
We didn't deserve that.
Long hard season ahead, but likely they'll be 3 worse than us again. Main thing though is the cunts fucking off, hopefully January if not before.

Same as me. I pulled out of going over 3 years ago after the Wembley play off. I did go to Bournemouth when we lost 6-1 and that's it. Ive fallen out of love for the club frankly. The allams have damaged me and thousands of others with their spite and vindictiveness. I will go again probably but only when they have departed, and unfortunately I don't see that on the horizon at all. Many keep stating they will go when the para payments finish. I don't think this sis the case at all.

I think it is the case Sunn. Faced with either puttting hard cash in or busting it they won’t be writing any cheques, certainly not when div three b3ckons. No merit in farting around in the lower divisions.

I doubt there are three worse teams than City. Derby probably a bit off colour as I heard City offered nothing much other than the goal.

Why do you assume there are three teams worse than Hull?

In their only win so far of the season, Hull even shipped in 2 goals against the worst team in the league and are currently joint third from bottom pointwise..

It’s hard to see upside for City. They “swooped” in for Elphick and Martin with an hour to spare but it hardly helps the cause.

Prudential man still talking about a hard working group and how they pissed it in the warm up up. Hulls answer to Donald Trump - talks bollocks, not credible. He gets it wrong on a regular basis.

If anyone knows when the last Prem payment is received please let us know. That is the time the Allams let go, thankfully.

Maybe there won't be. Reasonable chance there won't, given that on paper we are much weaker than last season.
However, on the other hand .... and I know there's a lot of 'ifs' involved:
- we played some decent stuff yesterday, and actually did deserve to win, against a very decent Derby side. We woz robbed.
- our 2 loan signings could make a big difference. Both experienced, decent CCC players (if we can get them and keep them fit)
- KG needs to get back playing, and need to put himself in the shop window, both for Poland and for an eventual move. If he can repeat his 9 goals and plenty of assists, that would make a big difference.
- Batty gets better by the week. MoTM yesterday. And Bowen is now a quality CCC player, no longer just an inexperienced, young kid trying to figure it out.
- Evandro is like a new signing too (if we can keep him fit). He was quality yesterday.
- Keane ought to be like a new signing too. His goal scoring record (in senior football) is abysmal, but he has looked decent when he's come on. There has to be a player in there, and something that's different to FC and Dicko.
- Martin might just add goals that we've been missing. He's my big hope to be honest, as it's upfront that concerns me most.
- Nige is a decent manager, and exactly the sort of personality we need during the continuing shite from the cunts. He, and Crosby, now know their way round. And they now have options; ok, not as many as they would want, but it's no longer threadbare.
- Milinkovic is an absolute mystery to me. There ought to be a decent as yet unused option for us there, but where is he?!?

I still see a relegation battle ahead, but we now have a decent fighting chance, and with a fair share of luck for a change, I can now see us surviving.

All secondary anyway to the cunts leaving.

When do Hull receive the final £34 million parachute payment?

Most Championship clubs receive £7-8m TV money, the variation depending on how many times the club are on television. Plus the match day revenue of £1.45 for the cup of tea that Kingston Kid buys.

From this paltry amount, after paying salaries, there ain't so much for the Allans to cream off anymore. And now the club aren't paying fees, they can't use the transfer fee amortisation as a valid tax reduction service, so it does beg the question of what would be the point of them carrying on as owners.

Before a tough following 3 games.
And Ipswich have 1 day less rest than us too Wink

We can deduce they haven’t been paid the full whack on parachute payments yet. Traditionally, City took loans against the prospective income, so a wild guess is either spread over the season or 2nd half of the season.

My money is on a speedy exit once it has cleared and been repaid to Allamhouse. There seems little value in Grosicki or Bowen transfers but they might just scrape a mill or two out of the January pizza fest.

By then we will be firmly in the shite. Prudential man has got little in the way of tic tacs and the players are not good enough for even this pisspoor level.

Administration by Xmas, relegated by Easter. Nothing religious going on, just the end of a sorry saga.

Go on then Al, I’ll have a shot at it.

Outside the relegation zone on goal diff only. Granted, it’s 4 games in but the little bit I have seen suggests this might be as good as it gets.

Senior established and experienced players left in the summer and were replaced with freebies and loans.

The manager seems in a tizzy most of the time. Southampton was a long time ago now and it looks like a string of failures since that point.

Back room boys have largely left.

The owners haven’t left. They do their utmost best to piss off the remaining hardy souls while they clearly are collecting every penny possible before discarding the club from where they found it, in the shit.

On a wider point, football per se is really getting boring now. Not necessarily the 90 mins, though the cheating is on the rise and no one is doing anything about that, but the charade that goes on around it. Respect, respect, respect and all that jazz.

It’s hope that kills you and the lost opportunity to leap straight back to the Prem, not that we could afford it now, might be something we reflect on for the rest of our period being City fans.

I’d love there to be a great spin on it and it’s all about a dozen fantastic kids coming through, it that is a flat line too.

Not one thing, but many many things have turned a pleasant pastime in to a soap opera, a poor one at that.

Is there a case for the defence?
