I'm no football fan. But my dad was. I dragged him away to watch ice hockey for a few years, but I always knew where his heart belonged. But he followed a team that consistently under-achieved, that failed to fulfil their promise, year after year after year, so he can be forgiven for turning his back on them in despair. He never saw his team move into their new home - by the time they'd relocated, his body was riddled with cancer. I hope he was hovering over the KC Stadium today. Back to back promotion achieved. Well done Hull City, someone's watching over you. Don't let him down now you're in the Championship.
