Hull City have taken to social media to engage with fans in humorous fashion, citing a particularly great moment in their recent history that doubled as a sly dig towards Yorkshire rivals Sheffield Wednesday.
The recent EFL postponement has left the vast majority of football fans clamouring for memories from years recent and old, looking back at the action from the past while there’s nothing to reflect on in the present.
Current global events have dictated the EFL’s decision and it wasn’t surprising to see that they have pushed this delay back even further to the end of April in the past few days.
Members of the British public are being increasingly advised to remain at home for the foreseeable future, and Hull City have made sure they have been active on social media to keep fans engaged in the midst of a lack of action from Grant McCann’s men.

The latest trend that is sweeping across social media that has been jumped on by the Tigers has been how people plan to fill their time during ‘quarantine’, and while Hull haven’t had much to shout about recently, they still have fond memories to cling to.
One of those was their play-off final win over Sheffield Wednesday back in 2016, with Mo Diame’s stunning long-range strike settling matters at Wembley and clinching promotion to the Premier League for Hull.
The Tigers used this memory to outline what they jokingly intend to do in their downtime at home, using it as a sly dig towards the Owls:

Can you name Hull’s first goalscorer from the last 16 seasons?
Social media is becoming quite a fun place for all teams at the moment as they look to engage in creative ways with fans.
This managed to generate quite a response from their fans and it’s good that they have been able to keep fans in high spirits despite the absence of football.
Sheffield Wednesday fans won’t be grateful for the reminder of this day but their club have been joining in with the reminiscing of great memories through the years.
There’s clearly no malice in the tweet and while clubs need to tread carefully with how they engage with other clubs, this shouldn’t be taken as distasteful.
