1) Pensioners should be sent to war and to do dangerous jobs ie. Handling radioactive waste, because they've got less life years to lose and cost more.

2) A new owner probably ain't going to be much better than the Allans, in the long run. Not to say that it isn't necessary for a change, just that the finite result probably won't be better.

Not really a beer drinker, Phaeton old bean, more of a wine and spirits man.

My how we laughed in 20 years time when we look back and say without a hint of irony "The Allams weren't that bad, really." 

Now then...

Be like those hankering back for the 'good old days' at Boothferry Park, because there's a good chippy behind the away end at Rochdale etc...
Forgetting we ended up playing from a two sided ground with no investment, dragged in front of the Judge because we couldn't pay the leccy bill ( several times) and floundering about in football's basement, until the promise of a new stadium and the arrival of the White Knight, Sir Adam arrived. Good old days my arse.

I recall a chap with a banner that read “Thank you Dr Allam” at the KC promotion party evening (wasn’t there, the pic was in the paper). Good old days are not so old perhaps. Not many then thought they were going to get blighted potatoes in next weeks groceries.

If we are worried about the next owner, then so is every club. York, Torquay, North Ferriby. Not even near the FL92 or whatever it is these days.

Probably have to accept that CI is your football fix. Just need EGD and Eddie to return and City Girl so we comply with gender requirements - not that her City knowledge isn’t appreciated.

Absolutely bang on KB.

Never understood why everyone goes misty eyed over Boothferry Park.

I hated the place.

Pitch was nice, though. 

Now then...

Boothferry Park was a magical place after the Harold Needler investment in 1964. New stand, floodlights, gymnasium etc plus the three £40k signings which set the City alight and resulted in that memorable 1965/66 season. By the mid 70's we were on the decline and the ground suffered massively as a result. The biggest insult was seeing the North Stand demolished followed by the closure of the East Stand/Railway terrace. We'd lost the railway connection well before that too.
Although it was a dinosaur of a place even on its closure it was still the best sports ground in the city.
I would have loved to have been around when 40,000 plus were regulary turning up to see Carters team.
From my first game v Everton in 1964 I dont think i missed more than a handful of home games right up to the final game before we moved to the KC. By then Boothferry Park was a rusting relic. I walked out the place after the Darlington game without a second glance back.
I saw some great games and big crowds there, and a belly full of lower league shite along with the other 3,000 hardy souls.
Over riding memories of what could have been was the Chelsea replay in 66, the Millwall home game, Christmas 65 and a game not involving City. Sunderland v Leeds FA Cup replay about 68, the place rocked that night, it was a First Division venue then and no one could doubt that. Shame the old place never reached its full potential and was left to rot.

Not sure about being misty-eyed, but for a lot it was the nostalgia of BP being a massive part of your childhood, teenage years, early adult life etc, where as a City supporter it was the adversity that came with following a shit team, in a shit ground and eventually even being the minnow among the 3 professional clubs in the city, that still lives with you today. Even today, when I'm out and about I have more chats / nods of acknowledgement, with members of the 3-5000 club than I do from any other walk of life, despite living and working in the area all my life. It wasn't BP per see, the nostalgia is for fellow masochists that frequented the place. 

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