    They had fans, though not that many, who stuck with them through worse times than now watching worse football and with the two rugby clubs having their best spell. You’re old enough to have been there in those days, Ben.

    Except we didn’t have new fans coming from rugby. We lost fans steadily after 1970/71 season. Rugby started attracting new fans drawn by the fact it was easier to win trophies and bathe in vicarious feelings of glory and some City fans deserted and started going to rugby, and they were some of the worst for sneering at City’s problems. Including the one who led all the “Waggy, Waggy, Waggy” chants on Bunkers. Denied ever going to City when a poster off here spoke to him on a bus. A statement undermined by him having Hull City tattooed on his fingers.

    At least we had an hardcore. All the fickle bastards jumped on the eggchasing bandwagon. Was you one of them ?

    Didn't speak to him on a bus, the poster you refer to saw him in Clarendon pub with his little gaggle of rugger chums and asked him then . He did deny ever going to City, that is true, and he did have HULL CITY tattooed on his knuckles. GS, the most biggest gob on the South Stand in the 60's. like thousands of others jumped on the RL bandwagon. Good riddance IMO.
    Good away point today at a ground were we got mullered last season 5-1 with Henrikson kissing his badge at the end, no-where near the first team today.

    Yeah, superfan you see, follow the club through thin and thin. It's a good job some of us did.

    I remember you telling me you had seen him. I also heard from someone who saw him on a bus. Getting the two mixed up obviously. Might have been DD or GK who said they saw him on the bus.

    To be honest it was Stewie & I’d fallen to sleep before he’d finished so had to make the end bit up.

    Yes, one and the same. Passed away a couple of years ago. Loads of mention of Old Faithful and FC in the obits. None about City.

    I'm sad to hear that. He seemed really tough but then I was about 13 at the time.

    What a massive dickhead you are!
    You're actually enough to put people off !
    And I don't believe you are the hardcore superfan you make out to be !
    What about people that enjoyed both !
    And by the ****ing way there where some good times in those so called dark days or do you just revel in misery or maybe you didn't go to the amount of games your massive ego claims !

    He looked it but he wasn’t. He was still going on away trips with our lot when you met Pat. Think he packed in about 1974 or so. He was blind in one eye which didn’t help in a ruck. Could outdrink any of us though, even though we could knock them back then.
