PHOTO SPECIAL – First game at the Circle

Wednesday 18th December 2002

Hull City kick off life at their new stadium with a bit of a bash. Bagpipes, novelty oversize keys, that Pippa bint, a hoarse Gift, Land of Hope and Glory, Sarah Whatmore executing Cruyff turns to show each stand her arse, and a musical firework display that played football chants with explosions! There was a game of football in there too, City pulling off a 1-0 against the Mackems to claim the Raich Carter trophy, presented by the Silver Maestro’s son. Right, so now we’ve got the fans, the chairman, the stadium, the manager, all we need now is a winning team and Tiger World Domination is ready to roll. Watch out Russia and USA, Peo is gonna snaffle your submarines.
