“I think back to the times the club was getting promoted. That Cardiff game on the final day, for example. The stadium was packed, every fan was on the pitch. I remember going down to Newland Avenue after the game and every bar was full of fans in their Hull City gear. That was what it was all about. Do you know what I mean? It’s the fans that make the club. It’s just such a shame that it’s turned." - David Meyler.

I liked Meyler.

Not was much as Imp liked him obviously, bu I liked him, save for the obligatory cock up most matches, unlike Sir Tom.

Meyler was more than happy to pick up the wages and keep quiet whilst it was going on though, despite all the protests and disharmony being unavoidable. He then got upset that his contract wasn't renewed and that he found out via this forum.

Plenty of workers around the world fall out with their employers, resign and move to another company on principle, so why didn't Meyler if he genuinely cared. He doesn't give a monkey's chuff about Hull and just saying the 'right' thing to be popular and a Social Justice Warrior.

Not really. Just don't see the point in his 'thoughts' after the event has occurred, when he was too cowardly/greedy to say it whilst it was happening. He knew and was too scared of his boss to say anything.

Everyone knows what has happened and why. If he is or was that affected, he could have said at the time and helped support and added weight to the protests. As it is now, he's just joining the queue of mourners asking 'Why', when it's over.

How do you know he didn’t raise the issue? It would be unprofessional to do so in the media.

Exactly.

I'll just fuck up my £20k a week (or whatever) from my employer, by slating them to the local/national/international press.

No, you, I and many others, would think I'm not happy how my workplace is being run and how the owner behaves, so I'm going to hand in my notice and leave for another workplace.

Instead Meyler stayed on and stated that he was disappointed not to be offered a further contract, when the Allans ended his employment.

So it clearly wasn't that important at the time for him, but now he finds a voice.

Gull, I'm getting worried about you, this is absolute codswallop.

Go for a walk and get some fresh air, or, if troubles are greater than that - and matters are getting on top you - call the Samaritans.

Love and peace.

He was happy to take the Allans' geld whilst they were offering it. They chose to stop paying him and now he decides he didn't like what they were doing to the club.

No problem with him being paid for his job at all, just that he finds his social conscience 6 months after being asked to leave.

Meyler is just virtue signalling and saying what fans want to hear. When it came to actions, he did the complete opposite of what one does if he believes what he says.

You're missing the obvious here, and others commonly miss the same point. The reason his "thoughts" appeared was because he was a connection between clubs in our latest game and our local paper asked him for his thoughts and very likely asked him specifically about the cancer issue. This is what the press do. It happens time and again and there were still people complaining that such-and-such "went running to the press" when it was exactly the opposite that happened.
