Hull City: Nick Barmby’s fate in balance until after bank holiday
THE fate of Nick Barmby is expected to be delayed until next week as Hull City owners Assem and Ehab Allam continue a disciplinary procedure against their suspended manager.
Barmby was hit with a suspension on Monday for his comments questioning the ambition of the Tigers’ board, just hours after the axe fell on head of football operations Adam Pearson.
The Allams met with Barmby at the KC Stadium on Thursday afternoon but, unable to find a resolution, the saga looks set to stretch into a second week.
It was expected the Allam family would look to push through a swift resolution once Pearson’s sacking had been confirmed, but those attempts to restore clarity to a messy fall-out have so far been in vain.

The delays will at least have afforded the City board time for deliberation and the angry reaction of supporters will not have been lost on them in recent days.
Such was Barmby’s popularity as manager, an e-petition has been set up calling for the Allams to reinstate the suspended boss. As of last night, over 300 fans had pledged their support.
Regardless of those attempts, a return to normality appears unfeasible with Barmby also deliberating his own next move.
Bound by legal constraints, neither party was willing to break their silence ahead of the Bank Holiday weekend.
