I think, technically, the petition (rather than an order) has been adjourned.
Sorry yes, you are of course absolutely correct, very sloppy wording on my part

Doesn't Hull have its own train company too?

What was the story when the Adver used Subbuteo to depict games because of a press ban? I seem to recall Southampton away.

Oh OK. I was thinking of Grand Central, which isn't Hull.

But didn't they have their own phone system or summut?

KCOM (of stadium fame) would be who you're thinking of. Sort of a local version of Openworld.

Maybe they have made an further agreement with KCOM. Hull isn't unknown for going independent. KCOM run the telephone and broadband, hence cream phone boxes instead of red in Hull.

Just a thought though, KCOM have been installing a load of fibre in the East Riding lately too, and consider they do have big sponsorship interests, so possible they have agreed something with Hull City FC regarding media. Possibly provide a Hull TV. I don't know, pure speculation.

I mentioned this on the previous page, regarding their breaking of ties with BBC Smiley

Northern is nowt to do with Arriva any more, they were so shite (actually it wasn't really them who were shite it was the government)  it was basically renationalised (like LNER) in March this year.

Which actually neatly brings this thread back on track (see what I did there) as it could be worse, your trains could be provided by Northern.

Ahh, I've made one train journey since about early March (pre-covid) and at the time I'd previously heard the news it being Arriva. I also think they managed to upgrade a few of the trains (put free wifi and usb points in) and make them a bit shinier before the (unknown to me) plug got pulled.

And absolutely, we still have a club to support, Town have somehow managed to move a lot of the big earners off the books, despite going up a division we still look fairly good at this moment for it. Even if there was before there is now certainly plenty of room to add others (plus any sniff of Bogle money or at least allows an investment from Power/Standing/BarryUSAJobbies/etc).

Not a huge surprise, other than that football clubs always seem to keep getting away with it. There was always going to come a point where a judge would go "Nah, you're just taking the piss now". And Macclesfield's owner had been well beyond that point for a season or more.

There's a reason why the League gave them an extra points deduction so they went down instead of Stevenage. Shit for Macclesfield's fans, League owe them an explanation and apology as to how the League let that man destroy their club and not only did nothing to stop it but at the end pushed them out of the League so the blood wouldn't be on their carpet. Never again after Bury? My arse

The kicker for Macc fans is that there was/is someone prepared to buy the club and clear the debts but Alkadhi won't/wouldn't sell.

Southend have 42 days to find a similar amount of money. They are in serious trouble as well.
