The Soul of Hull City #17: Championship survival while Leeds are relegated

CHAMPIONSHIP SURVIVAL WHILE LEEDS ARE RELEGATED
Talking points 

DeanoLeeds

So it’s us or Leeds to go down, and we have to go to Cardiff whereas Leeds, a point adrift of us, are at home to a middling Ipswich. One game remains after this so relegation may yet not be decided there and then, but if City could manage a win at Ninian Park, that’d be very handy, thank you. Few actually believed it would happen in tandem with Leeds conceding a hilarious late equaliser to Ipswich, prior to their lamebrained fans trying to get the match abandoned by invading the pitch, mind.

Dean Windass, three months into a glorious Indian summer with the club he adores, scored City’s only goal shortly after half time, and in front of a boisterous and euphoric travelling Tiger Nation. Every outfield player jumped on the 38 year old striker’s back, all part of the cause, though Leeds were winning too. But then Alan Lee, Ipswich’s effective lummox of a striker, completed the fairytale at Elland Road, and City were three points clear with a goal difference of considerable superiority. Leeds accepted their relegation before the maths confirmed it a week later, even taking a ten point deduction for administration and finishing bottom of the table.

We’ve had moments to celebrate our own achievements, but this one remains unique for the feeling of inflicting deserved damage on hated rivals which prompted, as a nice bonus, messages of congratulation from all other football fans. Hell, even the Cardiff fans more renowned for offering us steel toecaps and People’s Elbows were cheering for us by the end. And the following year we won the play-offs at Wembley to get to the Premier League, prior to Leeds losing theirs to Doncaster and staying in League One. Perfection.

    Both with a bigger and better trophy cabinet than your ever likely to have. Sharing a motorway and 11 seasons since 1955 doesn’t make us rivals. It makes you look desperate. We also share a stretch of motorway with Luton, so do we make them rivals too? I love how these tin pot done nowt won nowt little clubs suddenly declare their hatred for all things Leeds when they get a nose bleed and generally get a few seasons playing us after our slide.

    We’re not famous anymore

    It’s not about desperation LUFC69, more a case of enjoying ourselves. But thanks for helping.

    And you don’t support a football club because of its trophies but because it’s yours.

    You may not be famous any more but you’re still the biggest bunch of wankers in football (barring possibly Millwall) but you’re probably proud of the fact.

    Looking desperate is going on other fan forum sites to have a whinge about how you’re bigger and better than them. You’d be better served concentrating your efforts on finding another crook to run your hate-filled, putrid cesspit of a football club.

    Why mention Millwall? Is it because they took your ground whilst you were still sat in it? Parity will be restored eventually you pathetic minnows, when Scunthorpe hammer you on the pitch and Grimsby off of it. Trampy little club from the shit side of England full of deluded theiving smackheads. Going to drag a fucking post up from 1984 when you used to hide? Thought not.

    How witty too, using the number “69” in his username. I can only assume he’s 12 year old.
