Hull City give fans no excuse for forgetting lyrics to chants

If you're a fan going to your first home game of the season, it can take you a bit of time to get back into the swing of things.

After months without club football, you might be a bit rusty when it comes to the lyrics to those chants you were belting out week after week in the previous campaign. Especially if you've sat out the first couple of home fixtures.

What's more, there will be a few new tunes as squad members depart and replacements arrive, so you can't really afford to slip when it comes to songs about guys who have been at the club for a while.

Hull City know this, and they're just giving their supporters a helping hand.

How are they doing this, you ask? Well, they've been putting lyrics along the advertising hoardings, like an 18,000-strong karaoke night.

Now, we're sure there are a few among you who are frustrated the image above is a still and not a video, thus depriving you of the full lyrics to Hull's Abel Hernandez chant.

Sadly for the Tigers, the mass-participation attempts weren't enough to keep all three points on Humberside, with Stoke's Xherdan Shaqiri inspiring Saturday's visitors as they ran out 2-0 winners.

We wonder if Stoke have a chant for the Swiss international, who arrived from Internazionale in the summer of 2015.

If not, we've come up with one for them all by ourselves. Call it a moment of inspiration.
