We could attempt to dissect the last two defeats where admittedly decent teams didn’t have to work hard to put seven goals past us and take all the points. We could attempt to articulate how we feel about the impact of the close season retention policy of ‘if there’s an offer he’s gone’ and a recruitment policy of ‘screw what the head coach needs or wants, it’s about freebies, loans and kids so parachute payments can be trousered’. We could register our contempt for the ongoing process of wrenching a community asset out of public hands and into the grasp of two selfish, greedy egotists who claim to be philanthropic yet act entirely out of self-interest.
Why though? It’s a waste of words and emotion, a two word hashtag says it all: it addresses who is responsible for the humiliation of our club, highlights the single causal factor for Hull City’s current league position, for the disintegration of the club/fanbase relationship and disenfranchisement many lifelong supporters feel, for the risible and needless battle with the people who built and own the ground that was a huge factor in our rise from Division Three to the Premier League. It does all that, but perhaps more importantly it identifies the one pivotal future event that will bring about positive change, a resuscitation of hope and the detoxification of a club that has been wilfully poisoned by poisonous people.
We’ll be more erudite on the podcast, we hope, but here’s a ten point distillation of what should fix every ill befalling #hcafc
