    Default HULL 2-Saints 1 Post match

    Extremely disappointed, The one good thing to take away from this is that Bouf will be amazing in the future

    Poor finishing and lack of urgency...

    Where to start. Such a disappointing result which is a microcosm of our season so far. So much of the ball, but did so little with it. 1-0 up cruising and playing a team forced into two changes, woefully short of confidence, yet we showed little desire to get a second, seemingly content playing keep ball in our half to no avail. Then yet again we manage shoot ourselves in the foot and gift Hull a way back to a game.

    We have a keeper who doesn't make saves right now for whatever reason. (Hull 2 shots on target, 2 goals), an insipid midfield pairing in Davis and Clasie who seem lost in the opposition third, offering zero creativity and zero goal threat. Couple that with an ineffective Redmond and an out of form Tadic and it's going to be a long season, where it's going to be a struggle to create and to finish those chances.

    Interestingly Boufal was originally named in the starting line up, but Puel changed his mind, can't help but think a bit more of the unpredictable creative option might have helped in a game like this.

    ****ed it away in the first half to be honest. Played at 70% and should have been out of sight at half time.

    Worst result of season

    Now an international break to dwell on it

    Table looks very tight. 3 points separating us and Hull in 18th.

    pathetic performance against an appalling team.

    No urgency, no cutting edge, nothing clinical.... just farting around with possession and getting no where...and now looking over our shoulder instead of climbing above the mighty Burnley and Watford... 2 tough games coming up.

    Sums it up. Our attitude at a 1-0 lead that was gifted to us was absolutely terrible. Hull were there to be hit for 4 or 5 and yet we played it safe, ignored space up the pitch and passed it back and let them stay in the game. Was no surprise at all to me when Hull equalised or went 2-1 up.

    I can't think of one player who did well. We looked tired.

  11. Default

    Too slow and complacent after we took the lead, believed it was won. Totally switched off for both goals and we were then in a position where we had to chase the game we should have had wrapped up, we'd played with such a lack of urgency for so long that it was almost impossible to reverse that. The rest of the performance then became rushed, disjointed and lacking composure.

    We should have been ruthless after the first goal, that's what cost us this.

    Hull showed why they're in the bottom 3 and Saints showed why they're only 3 points ahead of them.

    Two weeks to rest, we've got some tough games coming up.

    Hopefully there will be a response against Liverpool, we're going to need to play much better than we did today, that's for sure...

  14. Default

    The boys let us down today. It was almost like they didn't wanna play. No energy at all, a lot of back passes and no one caring enough. We gave the victory away to Hull.

    we got what we deserved. Loads of backwards passing and no one able to play a killer ball.
    final 3rd was woeful yet again. That is a serious worry.

    alright scoring from set pieces/penalties (and getting an own goal) but something must be wrong with patterns of play to be woeful most weeks in the final 3rd

    the 1st half was so slow and boring it was unreal. half of this team didnt play on Thursday.

    Clasie needs to learn how to play forward. Davis is not much better.

    Puel should have made a change at HT.

    probably the worst result of the season and Hull played like a pub side in the 1st half.


    but we need to sort out the final 3rd in open play as it is a worry and less backwards passing whilst the opposition get set in defence


    we are only 3 points above that shower of shyte. that is because we struggle to score goals in open play

    We lost a bit upset but that is football if you cannot accept losing what is the point of playing the game

    Our forward line needs renewal. Less men, more quality.

    Infuriating result, a weekend that makes me hate football.

    However, despite several people claiming we should be winning easily on the build up thread, there's no such thing. Doesn't mean we are destined for relegation... On the flip side, even though the win against Inter was great, our performance wasn't particularly convincing, and it's not a huge surprise that with the policy of squad rotation we're going to slip up from time to time. It doesn't mean the policy is wrong, just that it's inevitable we will either be tired or understrengthed in certain games.

    Just gutting that we took the lead and then failed to see out the game against a side who are clearly one of, if not the weakest team in the division.

    Against supposedly easier teams like Hull etc I would of hoped we would of played this forward/midfield line up, i feel it has a lot more goals in it


    Boufal-Austin-Redmond

    Tadic

    Davis Hojberg

    Romeu

    Analysing why you lose is also part of being a fan

    International break... I wonder who we'll lose in this one?

    Liverpool & Everton next. After Chelsea & Hull that'll make it 4 league defeats on the trot and see us hovering dangerously above the relegation zone.

    I'll ask the moderators a question. How the **** have some of the blatant wum's on this site not been banned or at least warned? You really can't have a reasoned discussion on this site about a game we've lost. It takes the **** tbh.

    Austin up front played well I thought. Keeper made some good saves to deny him.

    Clasie on goal at 80 minutes ish but won't shoot with his left foot.

    Whole midfield not prepared to turn and run/shoot when in good positions, looking to pass backwards too often. Not hungry enough to score goals.

    ****ed right off with that result. Hull were ****. They didn't even look interested in being out there today but we were so painfully slow at 1-0, more often then not we would pass the ball backwards. It isn't good enough.

    This result shows just how much we ballsed up in the Summer. Mane hasn't been replaced. We are missing his unpredictability in the final 3rd. Redmond doesn't offer that and Boufal looks like an alternative to Tadic.

    Liverpool up next, not looking forward to that one.

    Pretty unlucky - they where complete **** & we seemed on a bit of a come down after the inter game.

    I agree - any slight constructive criticism of the team or management is howled down by a cabal of trolls.

    We'll beat Liverpool and Everton. Guaranteed.

    Liverpool are due a dodgy result like when they lost at Burnley and Everton are playing worse than we are.

    I didn't think we were that bad. They lulled us into a false sense of security got lucky and then defended well. That's football.

    Cant wait for Batman's **** in the hands and clap photo.

    Well that went a bit tits up didn't it. Definitely not ruthless up top. Shame but at least the Irish beat the all blacks so weekend not all ruined. Have to wait now to make up for it.

    We have a manager who is more interested in possession statistics than creating chances. We also as a club have had the wrong profile of midfielder for far too long. Davis, clasie, ward prowe all they do is recycle possession rather than looking to probe and create or get in the box and look to score goals. As long as we have midfielders like this in the team we won't go anywhere.

    We are totally reliant on Austin to score our goals from open play

    Off days and mistakes happen but we seem to lack a killer instinct.

    It doesn't make us ****.... but it is frustrating.

    We're not the first team to suffer as a result of playing in the Europa League without a squad costing 100s of millions and we won't be the last. But very frustrating against a team that look nailed on for relegation. This is Saints though...

  39. #39

    All very flat and crap TBH. Too slow and ponderous going forward, no spark and we don't look like scoring too many from open play. Still ridiculous that we lost that but if you don't kill teams off when completely dominant as we were in the first half that can happen. Mildly worrying that we are only 3 points ahead of a truly shyte Hull now.

    With the possession approach didn't Claude say we had to play this way rather than the classic up and down style because if we play every 3 days otherwise we would be knackered very quickly

    Not rating Forster of late, can't seem to shot-stop very well atm - anyone know when McCarthy is back? Might be worth giving him a few starts (when healthy), send a message to Forster, might get him back to form.
    Also, Boufal looked to be finding his feet - always looked forward, was all over Snodgrass, and played some good balls.
    Furthermore, despite being a fan of his to start with, Clasie is struggling I think, very limited for me.
    Yoshida was solid at right back but, as is probably to be expected from a centre-back, he literally is unable to put a good ball in - will be good to get Cedric back I think

    As frustrating as this result was, I am not overly worried - I think we will finish mid-table (8th - 12th), with good results in cups - realistically this is a good season.
    All in all, i think we will be ok, sh*t happens, can't get too hung up on this result

    Could see this coming. Coming off a very emotional win Thursday. A string of 5 games in 15 days or so. Tired players, thin squad. The International break in the players view..

    tried to coast through this game. it didn't work out.

    But we are still knackered by the looks of it.

    Never troubled - just lacking a bit of quality in the middle of the park and up top.

    This team has so few goals in it - not just today but even games we have won should have been by more. This is becoming the main issue in every game and it desperately needs addressing in January. We must make more backwards passes than any other team and the final ball is just pathetic. Such a frustrating game and should have been won well ahead of letting them back into the match. Much work still needed.

    Goal difference of 0. Says it all.
