  1. Really pleased for Lloyd and this exactly the right policy of the club. Sustainable investment in the academy, right manager giving young talent their break and loan systems in place to bed others in. When we get to the Premier league we won't have to sell but until then this will happen with the right price and player. Yes sad to see our own go but surely make sense in the longer run. On a side note, Brian Tinnion is surely due a cut of some of these transfers fees. What a great job he is doing behind the scenes.

    Definitely one to watch - has received rave reviews down here for the season and would fit the bill at 22 years old. If Portsmouth fail to negotiate the lottery of the play-offs and we end up needing a replacement ball carrying centre back he should be on the list of targets.
  3. yep you win the better 'action' photo comp but why are you still reading my shit?
  4. The picture isn't bull but if I could have worked out to edit a title after posting I would have done ....along the lines of "Why not hang around and give the team some love!" I can confirm it was my picture taken impromptuly and purely for personal reasons that I thought the rainbow over the top of the stadium gave a prophetic feel to the team and perhaps for next season (old romantic). However at the time I was also definitely underwhelmed by the fans exodus when in my mind it is traditional, come what may, that the team and manager/staff have a lap of honour and applaud the support and that appreciation is reciprocated. It wasn't empty and it wasn't taken at the final whistle as I have explained on several responses since. However the picture gives a pretty fair indication of the level support left in the stands and I think most who remained were as disappointed as I was that the vast majority couldn't hang around a while longer and show some appreciation. What I find more refreshing it that most got this and have discussed what may or may not be behind the lack of connection with the club. It is not about individuals or why they leave it is about the collective - 23,500 City fans (assuming 2k Derby) and perhaps 3-4000 stayed on to applaud their team and in what most would assume to be the last home game of the season. Maybe I have skewed memories but I pretty sure we had more fans stay behind in our relegation seasons!
  5. I have already replied if you care to read, that my picture was not taken at the whistle and I certainly don't have an agenda but I was intrigued as to the general point that the traditional lap of honour for the final home game of the season (whether to be extended or not) is a chance for many supporters to show appreciation to players and for them to show appreciation back. It is mutual and respectful and maybe not be for everybody who is sick and tired of yet another season of missed opportunities, but it did seem that a large majority couldn't get out quick enough yesterday. Anyway this will be the same sort of shit so jog on and read something more palatable to your good self.
  6. Well in that case the 20000 who left will be in the away section at Hull taking the chance to applaud them then?
  7. Yep probably 5 mins after the final whistle... City players just passing section 82. Also not completely empty if we are splitting hairs. BUT, my point is at the final whistle the stadium all but emptied and by the time the players has started to applaud the fans back believe me 3/4 or more of the city fans were already in their cars, on their buses or bikes or whatever. Put is this way, if only two players came over to applaud you for your efforts in supporting the team for the whole season would you be a tad disappointed in their efforts?
  8. I can get the 'some' bit, but surely the majority could sacrifice a bit of a delay in there Saturday evening schedule for a once a season appreciation. Just thought the players deserved more from us after the game yesterday.... Especially after what was a pretty good atmosphere during the game.
  9. I know the result wasn't what we deserved or wanted yesterday but it wasn't for the lack of effort! So why not stay and applaud your team on the seasons efforts yesterday?
  10. Results against Derby and Millwall and then all set for Sunday May 5th 2019 that we can shake the Windass monkey of our bank and finally pay back Hull for the memories some 11 years ago! ALWAYS BELIEVE (until the reality kills you )
  11. to answer my own question we are =12th in the "shots per game" at home with an average of 13.63 (and 4th place away!) so actually not so bad when compared to looking at just goals scored where we are 19th in the goals scored at home table. http://www.footstats.co.uk/index.cfm?task=league_shots
  12. True that is only one basic measure of attacking intent and maybe a better comparison would be shots on goal per game at home showing that perhaps we are just very wasteful. However almost half as many goals scored at home certainly doesn't compare well with those around us.
  13. If you look at the number of home goals in the 'for' column we are way way behind our peers and yet pretty much even for the equivalent away. For me we have to go for it far more at home and throw caution to the win and I believe the atmosphere would naturally respond and improve for the last 4 home games.
  14. Talk of a defensive and dysfunctional Middlesbrough are wide of the mark. By all accounts they gave a good account of themselves against high flying Norwich and looking at the stats it would back up an attacking set-up, and that is against a top of the table squad let alone us. As fans, lets not be too ahead of ourselves tonight against a more than capable Middlesbrough team - a draw would be a great return following the Shef Utd game. Even a narrow loss is not the end of world ...just don't get spanked! Middlesbrough v Norwich Possession Home40% Away60% Shots Home17 Away17 Shots on Target Home6 Away5
