Hull City fans react angrily on Twitter to booing of their own chant - 'On the verge of a civil war'

Hull City KC Stadium

We select the best reaction to the booing of Hull City's own chant in their fixture against West Ham United last night.

A section of Hull City supporters have caused controversy after they booed their own chant last night. 

Hull fans began a rendition of 'I'm City 'till I die' in the side's fixture against West Ham United yesterday evening, but the chant was greeted with a mixed reaction.

Supporters of the club who are keen not to lose Assem Allam as chairman, are hoping that the proposed name change comes into place and have now vocalised their support on the divisive issue. 

Allam, who has transformed Hull's fortunes with his money in recent times, wants to change the club's name to Hull Tigers, but the proposal was met with widespread derision when first announced.

However, Allam has now threatened to quit if he doesn't manage get his wish and there is starting to be a growing section of the fan-base who are in agreement with the change. 

Last night was the first time that any pro support has been vocalised in the KC Stadium and it has been the major talking point to come out of the game, despite an entertaining contest.

The match finished 2-2 with Abel Hernandez and Mohamed Diame both bagging their first goals for the Tigers, but supporters have been more keen to discuss the booing that took place on Twitter.

It has sparked fury amongst the fan-base who, generally, are still opposed to the name-change and if it continues the atmosphere at the club threatens to turn very sour.

Here is some of the best reaction to what looks set to be a very controversial topic for some time yet.
