    future of tigers

    Yeah, not sexist or racist but clever!
    According to The Times Rich List, the Allam brothers, Ehab, and Assem, are worth £417 million, but I doubt that is enough to own a football club – as the saying goes, “to make a small fortune from football start with a large one” – and they are probably just realising this!
    Unlike the Venkys at Blackburn, the Allams have a real connection with Hull. Assem Allam has supported several local grassroots sports clubs and made donations to the Hull Truck Theatre, as well as becoming a trustee of the Daisy Appeal at Castle Hill Hospital. However, despite all the charity, the Allam name will be camel dung in Hull unless they sort out the mess they have made of managing the Tigers.
    Replacing Nick Barmby with Kevin Blackwell, or any other manager I can think of, will not get the fans back on side.
