Whilst Hull are flying with a new found belief it is no secret that away from the positivity on the field The Tigers have found themselves in largely public stand-off with current owners Assam & Ehab Allam. The Allam's have found themselves at the as the target of an angry mob who with right are standing proud for their football club and their legacy. The Allam'swhilst loved at first infuriated the Tigers fans when he applied to rename the club and to branch out and create a franchise. The Allam's would rename the club Hull Tigers and change the clubs crest. This was originally approved by the FA and the fans had no idea at the time. Feeling betrayed Hull protested to stop the rebranding of a remarkable club and uproar pressured the FA to consider this decsion.
From this the owners where vocal to the media about this and openly critisised fans which turned any ounce left of forgiveness. Since then numbers have dropped rapidly with the club averagintg 10,000 fans last season in 25,000 seater stadium. There have been multiple protests staged, groups to pressure the Allam's to leave the club so Hull could heal from a turbulent history of unstability in the board room. To the current day the club have suffered from the toxic atmosphere and all parties want to move on but a club with such unstabilty and toxic atmosphere a suitor for the club has been hard to come by. On a few occasions there has been consortiums approaching the club bringing back some hope for Hull fans all over but on each occasion this has fallen through.
Tag Todi, Your It
It would seem that the search for a new suitor has worn thin for the Allams and enough has been enough as the Allam's will no longer stick around while a new suitor is found. In an interesting turn of events it looks like the Allam's will appoint a member of the board of directors to be the clubs owner. This whilst not solving the issue entirely will sure to bring celebrations that the turbulent and toxic past can now begin to heal. By no means will it be easy to recover from this saga but the compassion and support of this great club will propell them onto greater things. If the Tigers can keep that focus on the field and if Caville can give the club a dream then there is hope that this club will be full of love once more.
The front runner has been speculated as been Faroese born director Jodi Jonsson. Its speculated that in the wake and destruction of the Allam's that gathering control of the clubs finances is going to be a fierce challenge. Hull would bank on taking that play-off final and securing lucrative funding which could catapult the club from crisis. If a takeover can't be found and finances can't stabalise we could see another club fall from grace as we have seen so sadly before. Time will tell what is in store for The Tigers but we can all feel that the uncertainty is sickly when thought about.
will be needed for Hull and what better than a packed month of football, giant killing ties and a push for the play-offs to keep you from picking your scabs. Hull will kick off the month in a local Yorkshire rivalry with Huddersfield. Then welcoming Wigan to the KCOM it would seem to be a straight forward first two games. 5 games to go in December will Hull travel away as they play Reading at The Madjeski Stadium but all eyes will be on the following fixture when Hull will clash with Arsenal at The Emirates for a chance to steak a place in the Carabao Cup Semi-Finals.
When Hull return to the League they will be back at their home and playing Blackburn Rovers who currently sit 19th. The final two games will be a trip to Luton Town at Kenilworth Road and finishing up at The KCOM against Swansea as we hopefully go into the new year with optimism and positivity.
Its been an emotional ride so far this season and the results on the pitch have sown a new sense of pride in the city in 2019. In what can only be described as a horror show win recent years has seen the pantomine villian leave and the support and togetherness of a wonderful city can put this saga to bed and rise.
We look forward to seeing how Hull fair in December and hopefully there will be a smile on the face of every support during the christmas cheer. Always remeber folks, there is always sunshine after rain and beggings always hide themselves in ends. Thats History for us.
