31.01.2015… Hull City (a)…

Hull City 0 Newcastle United 3

KC Stadium… Saturday January 31st… 12.45pm

Attendance: 23,925

Ticket: £35 – Programme: £3

Another odd day; I couldn’t get a ticket in the away end, so had to sit quietly in the main stand, very difficult when Remy Cabella scored…

My first trip to Hull since 1990, they still played at Boothferry Park back then and were relegated to Division 3 at the end of the season, although on the day they beat us 2-1 in front of 8,375 supporters. They showed footage of the game on the big screen before the match, funnily enough there was no footage of our two meetings from the previous season, a 3-1 league win and a 1-0 FA Cup Third Round victory

Not going to get carried away though as Hull were inept, all we had to do all afternoon was sit off and wait for them to give the ball back…

Pre-Match: Outside a Very Cold and Wet KC Stadium…

Ninth away game of the season, six trains there and back, on a ticket costing £65.50 but that doesn’t entitle me to a loyalty point because I’m not a season ticket holder…

It’s getting to the point where I’m losing interest again, maybe it’s my age but retracing my steps this season hasn’t been as much fun as I was expecting it to be. Something has definitely changed, maybe it’s the disconnect between fans and players, maybe it the soulless stadia or how corporate everything appears to be, possibly a mixture of the three and more. I guess that’s the Premier League for you, it’s not going to change so what can I do…?
