    While it seems as if Morison really should be a former Tan Utd player, he actually isn't. I assumed he'd turned out for them too.

    Sadly I think they're safe unless some financial chicanery can be unearthed.

    I think they are in the battle to avoid the drop as they've got no manager in and are gambling on a former player to save them, Steve Morrison. I'd expect Hull to pull clear with some money from Acun buying in a couple of players.

    Our win today has given us some breathing space, the Paterson saga needs to be solved quickly as it's a big diversion.

    D'Margio Wright-Phillips opened the scoring in the Stoke-Fulham game today. Son of Shaun W-P.
    You're not the only one, he was mentioned on the matchgoing thread two weeks ago and indeed on the the previous page of this thread.

    Yup

    And five points behind Reading, which would have the last safe place

    Forest v Derby descends into a mass brawl before and after the end of the game, helped in no small part by the gobby twats on both teams, not least Forest's goalkeeper, and captain.

    Acun is a very astute businessman who knows how to play the game. He's brought many franchise TV shows to Turkey and managed to become extremely wealthy over a 20 year period.

    However, he must be connected to Erdoğan to have achieved this.

    Oh, I'm under no illusion that it could go spectacularly tits up, I'm knocking on the door of 40 years as a City supporter, so I've been through a fair whack of iffy owners. But the initial noises seem to be reasonably positive, he's a publicity dream (the much loved old club badge on his private jet, announcing the takeover on the Turkish version of The Voice, club shop to be opened in Istanbul) and he's already cleared the loan from the EFL which enables us to buy players again. Small steps, and all that.

    Having suffered Hammam and Tan in a former life, I can understand the joy Hull fans have at finally getting rid of the Allams.

    However, I'm a little concerned at what appears may be unquestioning devotion to this new owner. On the face of it, do we know he's any different from the other "White Knight" rich owners just adding any English club to their personal portfolio.

    Obviously he doesn't want to change the club's name or (that we know of) scam an ownership deal for the ground and land around it so the Anyone But Allam factor is immediately compelling.

    I just hope there is a level of healthy scepticism and it doesn't turn out to be (as it was with Hammam and Tan) 'Meet the new boss, even worse than the old boss'.

    Meeting at the EFL tomorrow, takeover expected to be rubber stamped, just in time for us to be probably abject once again for the TV cameras. Almost considered going before I was invited to something else, but the excitement levels here in Hull are rising by the second.

    They've scored more goals in the last three games (19) than we have all season (16 in 24 games).

    First time a Football League team scored 6+ goals in three successive games since 1934, apparently.

    It doesn't need to work for the home side's goals.

    The actual score and time went missing for a while in the second half, though the ads kept rolling

    The bogs weren't great for such a new stadium and I found a Grimsby Town sticker on one of the seats

    I was on a ground hopping expedition to Hull yesterday and can confirm all of that. DWP was a real livewire but I was surprised at how bad Hull City were
