Hull FC fans react to “worst day in club’s history” following humiliation in London

Hull FC players dejected

Hull FC fans would have been forgiven for thinking this season could not get any worse prior to today.

However, one of the toughest seasons in the club’s history became more of a disaster on Sunday afternoon in Wimbledon.

Travelling to face the only team below them in Super League, London Broncos, the Black & Whites were expected to pick up only their second win of the season.

Playing against the winless Broncos, FC were strong favourites with the bookies after improved performances in the recent weeks against Leeds Rhinos and Warrington Wolves.

But there was no sign of that spirit on show as they were humiliated by London, losing a resounding 34-18 to cause another huge backlash from the Old Faithful.

Hull FC sink to ‘new low’

Unsurprisingly the reaction online was of real discontent among the Hull fanbase, with many stating this was the lowest they have ever seen their club.

One person asked if ‘this Hull FC team was the worst in Super League history?’, while another stated it was ‘probably the most embarrassing performance in the club’s 160-year history’.

‘Just when you think we can’t get any worse’ another fan said, with another stating that the club was now firmly in a ‘banter era’.

Another fan was also honest enough to admit that the Broncos should have beaten Hull in the fixture earlier in the season, stating: “They should have beat us in the first game let’s be honest. This is a shocking squad of players.”

Another fan summed it up: “Worst team to ever wear that jersey.”

Where do Hull go from here?

The first thing to mention is that Hull fans should breathe a huge sigh of relief there is no relegation this season on the pitch, because on this showing they would be in serious danger.

On the evidence of their performance in London, taking into account the spirit showed by the Broncos and the lack of heart from FC, there is a strong chance that Hull will now finish this season with the wooden spoon.

Now the board at the MKM Stadium must decide whether to keep Simon Grix and Francis Cummins in place until the end of this season or step up their hunt for a new head coach.

Adam Pearson or Richie Myler have a decision to make in the next two weeks, with no Super League game next week due to the Challenge Cup.

The sensible option following today’s evidence would be to appoint an experienced coach with immediate effect to stop things from getting any worse – if that’s even possible that is!

    As a Rovers fan I could be tempted to say something nasty, rub the fans noses in it, but this is just awful for words. Rugby in the city is made stronger by having two strong sides, the current state of FC is abysmal and hard to fathom. They just don’t seem bothered. The fans are paying good money to see the games, and what they’re getting isn’t good enough. They deserve better than what they’re getting currently. Maybe dropping the first team and playing the youngsters might focus minds? Change is needed quick!
