On August 29th, the club recorded a low crowd turnout of 4,466 after the club witnessed Derby beat them 4-0 in their home ground. The two teams interlocked the horns in the Carabao Cup. The number that was witnessed was the lowest that Hull city has ever recorded in attendance. The Kcom Stadium was almost empty. This happened for the first time since Boxing Day back in 2002. This was when the son and father acquired the rights of ownership for the club back in 2010. Currently, they are barely playing happy families and conversing during this infrequent meeting in his official premises following an interview with the team manager, Nigel Adkins and the Vice-chairman Ehab Allam. They suggested that the club might be sold soon before Christmas. Ehab Allam is currently under discussion with interested business people. After the club is sold to the interested buyer, this will be soothing music to the ears and eyes of many fans.
Allam accepted that an unparalleled period of achievement under the family has already reached its maximum. The atmosphere at the club has turned toxic. The club has become infighting and disdain more evocative of a civil war than the expected. It speaks out that Allam, who was born and bred in the city of Hull has never attended a single match since the finals of the 2014-2015 season. The team played against Manchester United where the match ended up in a goalless draw that made the team to be relegated from the English Premier League. Hull city had only been in the Premier League for two years. Allam noted that he watched the matches from home where he lives, ten minutes away from Hull City’s Kcom Stadium.
He said that it would ultimately be hypocrisy of the highest order to be emotionally attached to the team and also attending matches when they are expecting to sell. That sent mixed up messages to the Hull fans. Allam continued to note that he frequently attended away matches. He did this to support the team and the manager. He never thought that home matches were the right ones to do that. If he were to attend just a few games, he would prefer when the team was away. Allam said that they were considering to sell the club. At the moment, the family has become physically detached because of the current situation with the fans.
