Things to look forward to next season
« on: June 01, 2021, 05:13:08 AM »
Long weekends in Blackpool and Bournemouth 
Blue noses, Cardiff & Swansea away (always a bit 'edgy')
Local derby's, Stoke, Coventry, Forest, Blues, Derby
What's not to look forward to?

Understand the nod towards no VAR but those officials the last time we were at that level were poor most weeks even in our favour .

personally i can tolerate inept, but not self promoting / attention seekers and borderline corrupt (allegedly).
Ineptitude will generally balance out, whilst the other is deliberately set up for the few ....

Losing games we're expected to win, getting knocked out in the early rounds of the cups cause we're concentrating on promotion, no Allardyce, last minute appointments both manager and signings/loans other than that it's as you are the Albion way!!!  ;D ;D

With luck we'll be winning which means more coverage on TV. 46 games too so with the extra coverage there'll be more midweek, early kick offs and daft slots in general.

And if away supporters are allowed transport costs may rise due to Covid regulations. Oh yeah, and no price cap for away supporters. Welcome back to the Championship.
It doesn't matter how many resources you have.

Not being patronised by dumb, lazy pundits.
Not being part of the Sky / Prem sycophantic drivel.
New signings
New manager
Having a chance of actual success
Actually winning games
And
Most of all
Getting back in the shrine!

He's an excellent pundit and much better than the tones of Hinchcliffe and Smith and the groans of Carrragher.

Hull is alright. I went a couple of years ago when Livermore scored the only goal. I didnt see anything wrong with it (Hull) personally.

Having been at the bar in my time I would suggest that most Bar Persons may get a bit spikey if you wet whilst there. :D

I knew a girl from there, she was really nice and she was showing me photos of it and it looked nice but she was middle class so lived in the better areas i'd imagine.

Like any city, good and bad bits. West Hull tends to be nicer than East.

Grimsby itself is an absolute doss hole, hate the place and can’t think of any nice bits. Though GTFC actually play in Cleethorpes, most of which isn’t too bad.

Hull is a decent place, interesting to see how it developed as a port being a fair way from the open sea so defensible.  Usual crappy development-by-numbers of the old docks though

Ok, Grimsby off the list then, I do remember that I went there on the infamous night game, (94?) arrived in the dark, got soaked and frozen in the dark, lost badly, left in the dark,  joyous experience

Not nailed on. In the 18/19 season we tried it without one. We had 2 YTS lads run us that season in Big Dave and then Jimmy Shan. Not convinced the board won't go cheap again.

That club was brilliant! We went in there and at the time I still smoked so i went out for a fag, as i was going out some Hull fans where coming in,I'd got my Albion shirt on and  i started charging them a pound to come in! One bloke said I'm a member so i asked him for his membership he only showed it me. Great day and some good blokes we had a laugh with.Been back since aswell.
