Indeed. I guess we will bet used to it but it is causing some ructions in this part of the world.


I quite like it. It's a new answer for the pub quizzes (Argyle, Orient, Palace, Villa, Hotspur, etc.), reflects the club's traditions (unlike the Cardiff kit change which flies in the face of them) and makes them stand out. The owner is absolutely right, the 'A' in 'FC' is completely redundant and pointless - 'football' means 'association football' unless otherwise specified in the UK, and most other codes have their own names that drop the 'football' part altogether (eg Rugby League and Rugby Union).



I call them Hull City or The Tigers. I never use the AFC part of the name and I cannot think of a chant that does either. If it gets money coming in then all well and good. It is still the same team with the same ground, same players and same manager. And we are still in the top division with shed loads of publicity because of this.

Come on you Tigers.

Do any of you guys do the official EPL Fantasy Football (http://fantasy.premierleague.com/). Worth setting up a private QOL/QZ league?

(edit: why wait?...I've set one up, here's the code 1404643-317218)

Proud of the Scotland team at Wembley tonight. Didn't expect us to get anything from the game but to play the way we did certainly is encouraging after the guff we've had to put up with over the years. Two cracking goals too. Onwards and upwards!!

Barça, Milan, Ajax and Celtic! Ouch!

Porto and Benfica, if they don't complicate, will go through to the next round. And so will Borussia and Arsenal. I hope Galatasaray kick Madrid's ass.

OK we lost but made a good fist of it. Thank fuck it wasn't decided by the free kick at the end following Nasri diving again.

I think Hull will be ok at the end of the season,it`s all about surviving the first season and then building on that. Will watch with interest JLP. Having the big teams first will work to your advantage I think.

yeah I think so. Other than the first 25 minutes at Chelsea, we have matched our opponents. With a bit of luck and better finishing, we could have got something yesterday.

Bale's a great player, but £5million better than Ronaldo? Pull the other one.

On the other hand, he probably is better than Torres and Andy Carroll put together.

4-2 in Belfast! 3 by Ronaldo, who is now the best scorer in the Portuguese team!! :onfire:
Now, come Israel and Luxembourg and hope we don't get to playoffs.
