Tiger, Tiger Burning Bright…

Assem Allam, the Egyptian-born owner of Hull City has announced that he will be changing Hull City’s name…

“Hull City is irrelevant. My dislike for the word ‘City’ is because it is common. City is also associated with Leicester, Bristol, Manchester and many other clubs. I don’t like being like everyone else. I want the club to be special. It is about identity. City is a lousy identity. Hull City Association Football Club is so long. In Tigers, we have a really strong brand.”

It really is quite simple Assem.
Hull City AFC is the club’s name (and has been since 1904).
‘Tigers’ is the club’s nickname.

Anyone else get the feeling that this is the thin end of a very big wedge?

If you haven’t got the first ‘Got, Not Got’ yet then please sort yourselves out and buy it from branches of WH Smith and Waterstones or online here

    Another reason to read Got, Not Got, Backpass etc and pretend modern football isn’t happening and is just a horrible nightmare.
