Sky's grim 'highlights' - judge for yourselves! For me, all of their goals were so, so easy.

As for Ned's red - the first time I can remember in aeons he shows a soupcon of aggression, and he uses it to get himself dismissed. If he'd brought that to his brittle defending today, perhaps we wouldn't have folded quite so easily. Weirdly, though, it was the initial foul by Scowen (that probably warranted a straight red not yellow) that prompted the handbags. As for our silly Chief, I guess he just wanted an early shower after that, uh, shower of shite.

I wonder if IH feels we're still in a 'good place' after that sorry showing!
Very odd that no one on here is talking about the fact that Holloway said before the game a lot of players were down with a virus so he couldn’t play his first team and hints were that some who were not 100% would have to play. Seems fairly obvious that a fit and hungry home team in a relegation battle beat an ill and tired away team with nothing go play for, which is exactly what tends to happen at this stage in the season.

Poor performance but as team we capitulated . Thought we lacked an outlet and a target , and wished Holloway had not spoken about the culture that is developing with the team as this is hardly indicative of such a statement. Whilst it is unrealistic to expect good performances week in week out , both home and away , if the club is developing a culture then performances like this are unacceptable as we completely lacked any fight .
Still one bad day should not undo all the positive steps which have been made of late , but it is fair to expect a lot better performance than what took place today.
Fairly self-evidently - Eze's not a target man by any stretch of the imagination, but, in mitigation, it looks like we were banjaxed today by what appears to have been Smith's and the lethal Washington's sickness-enforced absences. Might have liked to see Smyth paired with Sylla in the circs, but I guess hindsight is 20/20.

Still, the lack of a fight of it makes it looks like two steps forward and another three back again! aniwall

In his post-match interview Ollie admits he shouldn't have put Eze in as the lone striker in the first half. The lad looked lost and didn't recover in the second when playing his usual position behind Sylla but I don't think he can be blamed.

Not a good day at the office for Ollie.

Yep a strange decision not to play Sylla from the start or even Oteh (if he was fit). Would be interesting to know who has been hit with illness: hopefully they are all recovered for the Sheff Weds game.

Yet another one of those grounds where I can't remember us ever winning. Our away woes are going to need addressing in the summer for sure if we are to progress - still lacking something in the spine of this team.

Was the question asked why then did he do it. It is to be hoped there was some reason however obscure

Valentine's Day 1970 was our last victory in Hull!
Saturday 9th November 1968: QPR V Burnley in the First Division - I saw the Hoops for the first time and my obsession began!

Thanks Z. I wasn't yet press-ganged into supporting us then :wink: Must he one of our worst records on the road after Forest. Still it ain't as bad as Barnsley's at our gaff :D

He offered that Sylla isn't really fit and Matt Smith was ill. Besides that though there was no mention of Wishy (just as well), Mackie or Oteh. And, of course, Charlie Austin plays for a different club these days though we may well be playing them next season because it's managed by a grade A wally.

I was gonna post the same thing. Just a shame we've got another game in 3 days time as I doubt the unwell players will be able to recover in time. Plus I think the sad news about Ray Wilkins has possibly disrupted training somewhat. But we're safe. Roll on the summer :)

Yes we are almost certainly safe but given the Jekyll and Hyde nature of our team and the memory of those losing runs, I find myself looking at the table for reassurance. We are without Ned and Lynch for a time plus the players that have been ill, but should be OK for three points on Tuesday surely.
