    I thought exactly the same rod....

    Reading that from top to bottom they really are a shambles at the minute and we need to go in to this with the professional and ambitious attitude we've had all season. We have to win. Play to our abilities and it'll happen.

    There are rumours that they plan to use the Sky exposure to highlight their plight.

    I heard that many are planning to take whistles to continually disrupt the game.

    Could be a late night.

    Any disruption of play by more than one fan should have a 3 point deduction !






    Obviously, a didn't mean West Ham

    Reading this, they don’t want to disrupt the game and only want to protest on the 30 minute mark, but if there’s a few hundred fans in the ground with referee’s whistles, we can bet that some of them are going to ignore that advice especially if they’re tanked up.

    Hopefully Hull’s stewards will be keener than Coventry’s we’re.

    Just seen a link on FB, from Sheffield United Fans live page, asking them only to blow whistles at 30 min mark or turn their back on play at 30 min mark.

    I cannot see those whistles not being used at other times throughout the game.

    Unlike the Cov pitch 'invasion' this is much harder to prevent.

    We could well be 'famous' for being passively involved in yet another football farce

    As with all these protests, it will change absolutely nothing, because the owners are not elected officials who can be voted out. Someone has to put up the cash to get rid of them. Look at all the protests against Mike Ashley at Barcodes. Is he still there..? Of course he is...

    Couldn't agree more FKB but it's their moment in the sun (well Sky!).

    Last time Sky were gushing and fulsome in their praise for the Cov fans.

    Wonder what tomorrow's reaction will be?

    BTW, the shoes off protest did seem to help in the removal of Robson.

    Hull are a Northern club from an unfashionable area so Sky and other Southern biased media will condemn any disruption to the game.
    Unlike at Coventry where they could gush about their FA cup win and how everything has been so unfair on them since.

    A team badly out of touch, a clueless manager and totally irate and fed up bunch of fans. Hardly going to inspire their team to greater things.
    We need to hit the ground running from the first minute, if we can get an early goal they might just stove in.

    That was only when he had to be snuck out of BDTBL in the back of a car under a blanket, for his own safety.

    Should have left him to face the music.he'd not know what was playing anyway, he'd have had his 'anaesthetic'.
