    Ta, opinions indeed.

    Marriott currently frozen out at Derby.  FL said the other week that he was not injured, just not included.  Bit weird???

    Derby fans think he's fallen out with Lampard but it's not true. I think Waghorn has been doing well in the middle which is why he isn't playing, it's worth considering that he cost potentially £8m as well, and then they've got Nugent who's probably on the best part of £25k per week as well. Wealth of riches.

    How is Marriott the better player  ?

    I was gonna ask that?  Better finisher, granted.  But Weimann (imho) is a far better player.

    Matter of opinion really isn't it. There's a reason that Derby let Weimann go to bring in Marriott, he's a quicker striker that poses more of a threat and has a much better goal record.

    City have always liked Marriott, us and Brighton were seriously looking at him when he was at Luton but he then got a nasty injury and struggled to get into their side after. In the summer we went for Marriott before we ended up with Weimann, so I think that's pretty telling.

    No disrespect to Weimann either as I quite like him. We could have done and in the past definitely have done worse for two million pounds.

    Better comparison might be:

    Andy Weimann £2m 10 goals

    Jack Marriott £3m 10 goals 

    Going to contradict myself here slightly. Marriott cost quite a bit more than £3m, but Marriott has also only started 19 games as opposed to Weimann's 39.

    Marriott is the better player and the one with big resale value potential in future, but of course there's a reason why Weimann cost less than half of what Marriott did and why Derby were willing to offload him in order to free up space for Marriott to come in.

    Is there something we as fellow fans can do about this? Is there someone with the nouse to set up some sort of online fund - I’d happily chuck a tenner in, and proceeds can go towards anyone taking a kid with them - say a tenner per kid to cover what should be the concession. 

    As said, I’ll happily stick £10 in. Just don’t know how we can set it up and ensure fair distribution to those taking kids? 

    Also would chuck some in, seems a bit of a piss take really. Shame it’s their dodgy owners pockets we’ll be lining though.

    Would that be Allam, who has been in Hull since1968...?! 

    In football, obviously. Club is up for the sale for the right offer, it’ll come in the next couple of years as there’s decent potential at Hull.

    - If they aren't on the bus , they won't be at Bristol City next year. Does this mean to Hull or on-board with the players coming in to replace them thing?

    Blimey. That means a complete overhaul as they're flying up, fasten your seatbelts...

    No discounts for kids ? 

    Kids are the future 

    Ill be staying in bristol then .

    Allams don't give a toss mate, they don't have a future in this country. They know they can charge clubs like Leeds, Sheffield Wednesday, Sheffield Utd, Forest or any other reasonably sized club up that way whatever they like and they will sell it, so they're just milking every penny for their remaining time here.

    Can't understand @BessexRED's point about people deciding to go last night but now not wanting to. Either staying overnight in Hull or getting up before 5am in order to get up there, spending well over 50 quid for both options, isn't something you would do off the cuff...

    You said this last night and I thought that's complete nonsense but let it slide, you've said it again so I'll comment.

    Below is an image of my train booking for funnily enough, Hull away last year. If you take a look, the booking took place on the 24th November, the day before the game.

    Spontaneous decisions happen all the time in regards to football matches, we decided to go after a few drinks in the pub that night. Didn't look too wise at 2-0 after 70 when stood in the away end freezing to death, 20 minutes later and things changed though.

    That was just £60 on the train, the whole day cost an absolute bomb but it happens believe it or not.

    They will only be able to 'open' them once they've been given the go ahead by Hull.

    Anyway, it's clear we're not going to agree on this as neither of us has any inside knowledge and we're both just interpreting wording on a website, so I'll leave it there! 

    I asked someone in the ticketing office about the Norwich allocation and how they were allocated so I'm presuming it's the same for this one but you may be right. Only issue I had was as Phantom said there were a handful left yesterday afternoon, it didn't take someone to be up responding to a 3am alarm to carry out the herculean task of releasing some tickets on a website as JBFC implied, it just took a bit of planning ahead and initiative. There were a couple in a group chat I'm in that were hot on it last night but having second thoughts after sleeping on it, I hope they still come.

    Not true.

    "The club has been informed blocks N6 and N7 are available first and the remaining blocks will be opened once these have been sold"

    Yes, opened by the club. The tickets are in our total control, we received a full allocation from Hull City. Norwich do exactly the same but the only difference is that they take unsold away tickets back and put them on sale to home fans as the demand is there.

  11. 2 minutes ago, elhombrecito said:

    This is down to Hull releasing each block at a time. Nothing to do with the ticketing system. 

    Not true. They allocated us the full 2,400, it's our decision to release the blocks. The tickets are in our control.

    14 minutes ago, phantom said:

    Or the fact there were less than 20 tickets for sale late afternoon yesterday, perhaps someone could have used their initiative and released the next section then?

    At worst they could have put a timer release on it

    Not even digging the club out that is common sense mate.


    Just now, Harry said:

    Not sure why you’re being so defensive over this mate. I think the guys initial point was that tickets weren’t available for sale last night. Reason being that they sell a block at a time. I’m sure it’s not necessary to have a manual intervention for the next block to go on sale once one block has sold out. His argument was basically why is this just not an automatic feature. 

    Regardless of the result last night, if someone wanted to buy a ticket they couldn’t. So would’ve assumed it was sold out and maybe not bothered trying again. 

    I wouldn't waste your time lads. He takes criticism of the club as a personal insult. He'll be constructing a sarcy response that he'll end with "..." as we speak.

  12. Could see both sides of the argument as we’ve used the second half approach away from home all season and it’s served us well but Hull are there for the taking. Blades were 0-3 up after half an hour there the other week, go and do similar and panic will set in around other grounds.

    Had to refresh several times and it became available. Think people might have them in their basket, so they go back on sale if the transaction is not complete in a certain amount of time?

    20 minutes I believe yeah. I’ll keep an eye out then, cheers for that.

    No need for that it there... 

    Yes I replied to you, and you failed to reply to my point in a normal, and civilised manner. Claiming I'd 'missed the point' which I obviously hadn't done... 

    I could’ve done a lot worse.

    You missed the point completely. That’s completely normal and civilised to point that out, it’s not hostile or put across obnoxiously. People get offended by anything these days.

    Says the person who has literally just initiated a petty squabble with me... 

    Weirdly I rarely get into any 'petty squabbles' apart from with yours truly when I don't agree with your point, but it seems that I'm not alone with that... 

    You replied to me you tit. 

  16. 11 minutes ago, JBFC II said:

    I don't think anyone would really make a 50 quid plus 'spontaneous decision'... 

    At the end of the day, anybody who wants to go still had two days, plus probably pay on the day, to decide to

    Bore off mate. You spend your entire day and night on here initiating petty squabbles with people, have you got nothing better to do?

  17. 4 minutes ago, JBFC II said:

    They have no need to release blocks when we haven't sold our allocation in the others. Which we didn't until tonight... 

    Why does it matter so much though? Its hardly as though people are now going to miss out on tickets is it... 

    Why shouldn’t tickets be available to fans who are buoyed by the result and make the spontaneous decision to get them tonight? They might sleep on it and then not bother, given we’re probably not going to sell out it seems a daft situation.

  18. 6 minutes ago, JBFC II said:

    That the club haven't got anybody up at 10pm to open up the blocks that are unreleased? 

    Let's be honest, it's hardly the end of the world. I'm sure people can wait until the morning... 

    Have you ever thought about planning ahead? Might serve you well in life if you begin to.
