There was chaos in East Yorkshire this morning when it was revealed that the price of a pie at the KC Stadium, home of Championship hopefuls Hull City, will rise to an extortionate £3.00 with immediate effect.
Pies, the staple diet in this part of the world, were priced at £2.50 last season, but with City having made several important signings, and with an ever-increasing wage bill to satisfy, revenue has had to be found from somewhere, and the pies are an obvious target.
Meat and potato pies, the Hull fans' firm favourite, are regularly eaten for breakfast by the residents of Hull, as well as at lunchtime, teatime (dinnertime) and suppertime. They are also taken between meals as a 'snack'.
Cornish Pasties are often given to sick children when they have a fever. Chips are optional.
John Tatty, a City fan who keeps a pie on his bedside table in case of an emergency, munched on a Steak and Kidney pudding as he told me:
"It's disgusting! To take advantage of the fans' like this just shows what the club really thinks of its supporters."
