About Wise Men Say

Passionate Tigers’ fans Jon and Alex discuss all things Hull City weekly and regularly have feature guests that have included ex-players Brian Horton and Lawrie Dudfield, among fans from around the globe.

It started out as a venture between two young men who wanted to spread some joy for the fans of their beloved club which has grown into much more.

It’s a pod that is just like a couple of lads sitting in a pub discussing the beautiful game over a pint, they analyse the latest games and news from their club and voice their opinions in a balanced way.

Being a football fan is full of ups and downs but we try to remain a constant source of joy for our fans, where we can debate all things happening at Hull City Association Football club.
