As I guess we all know, it's not so much about 'boycotting the KC because of the Allams', for the majority it's more likely they've become so pissed off and disillusioned by what's happen at and in the name of 'our' club that they are apathetic at best, or can no longer give much of a flying fuck at worse.
Question is, how many will return once they've gone (next month I believe)?


There will be a nominal increase of attendances, but I'm afraid many will have long forgotten Hull City to be enticed back in my opinion. Meanwhile, we've lost a whole generation of youngsters, ensuring the near future has a bleak outlook also.

However, new owners can enjoy an immediate uplift in attendances with three quick wins:

- Restore the old badge
- Bring back concessions
- Ditch all this Hull City Tigers nonsense that infests the club.

But it won't be the many thousands that Karlberg speaks of ironically or otherwise. Such is the damage wreaked by the Allams and the legacy they have chosen to leave on this club. 

Now then...

Indeed. So, what's it going to take? Well, not only a promotion push, but the acquisition of two or more out-and-out goalscorers that can take us from this division to the Prem and carry on scoring up there. Or perhaps we have to take a run up starting in League 1, or Division 3 as it should be called.

A huge cut in match prices would help. I recall some lying bastard promising a fiver a match many years ago.

It’s not just the Allam thing though.

Whereas I thought it impossible to believe, the game has pissed it’s own pants with a series of events that results in it losing the very essence of why we all got hooked on it.

Cheating players, no standing, smoking, drinking, farting, swearing stadiums. Games on a Thursday, innane commentary and analysis by ex pros who were donkeys on the field of play, agents money, players money, loads of tv money asd as above, it’s still 30 fucking quid to get in.

It’s not for me anymore. I don’t miss it much. The days of getting up early on a Saturday for a lengthy trip, the tension from 2 till 6 or beyond are long gone. The Allams just paid for the nails in reality.

Shame but nothing lasts forever.

Oh yeah, forgot to mention, another glorious defeat according to Prudential man. Everyone did well but the long drive back North was not accompanied with any points or goals.

I trust we also did ok in the warm up but sadly not many report on that these days so I need all of you that went to advise on that.

UTT

It doesnt matter who buys the club because the crowds will not come back in significant numbers until we start winning again. It would still be £30 at Bolton on Saturday if a fairy godmother owned us, and there would be still next to no fucker there because of where we are in the league table.
Restoring the badge, bringing back concessions and ditching all the shitiness would see a few return but no-where like the numbers who jumped ship when we were relegated from the Premier League and found a convient excuse for doing so.
Having said that the Allams couldn't have done a better job of alienating thier support if they tried.
It's not the first time this has happend to City, in fact it's almost like history repeating itself.

Support is always correlation to winning.

The best supported club in the world, Sheffield Wednesday, bleated about being able to fill Wembley twice yet in the days of lower div 2 and div 3 they had crowds in the low teens. Likewise Leeds, Wolves, Forest etc, all former European winners. As soon as the glory ends, so does a bucket load of attendees.

It fell off a cliff with City because of all the antics surrounding the club. Steve Gibson at Boro has maintained a football first theme. They employ dull fookers mind you so it has to test the faithful, Karanke and the Pulis FFS, makes Mickey Phelan look like a genius, but the core is the fan, cus he’s a fan too.

You could explain it forever and a day to the Allams and they still wouldn’t get it. They got involved for the wrong reasons. Once the property idea crashed it was all over. Then greed took over when the old man was Tom Dick and here we are. In the shite once again.

We’ve all been to away days when there wasn’t a mini bus full stood on an empty terrace. Best you could hope for was not running the gauntlet at 5.45pm. Almost back there, but without the thud of boot.

Correct although most posters on Not 606 seem to be in cloud cuckoo land.

Ps. Went to Bolton during their promotion year in the 70's , stood in one of the side stands, brilliant atmosphere tbh, 3 sides of the ground singing......less than a coachload from Hull in the open ended stand behind the goal.

I believe that the support will return.
It might not be an immediate return but with a better feel good factor, coupled with winning again and leaders who have some knowledge about us supporters will soon get the public back onside.
Kids for a quid again, and decent liaison will help mend the errors of our ways.
