Well that sort of performance is not going to deliver promotion! Hull were good value for the win and outplayed Saints in the first half. Saints didn’t adjust their game until well into the second half - and even then we were too slow and predictable. Shout outs to Bednarek, Aribo and Brooks (who looks class). No surprises that Bothwell, Mara and A Armstrong were subbed out - they were all anonymous or terrible!

Well beaten by the better side tonight. Aribo should have started over Rothwell and Adams over Mara. Hull were always going to be tough should have played our best side. Hull played us at our own game. Bazunu struggled with clearances under pressure. Some poor passing again as at Bristol City. Looks like the play offs beckon. With Rotheri equalising in the 94th min at Ipswich only to lose in the 95th min it wasn't a good night. The momentum feels like it has swung behind Leeds and Ipswich but it could swing back again.

Got to blame the manager for that result. Should never start Mara, Edozie & Rothwell against a team as good as Hull. Frazer and Brooks should always start.

RM can't pick a side to do us justice in the first half of matches so we're always chasing it. Unfortunately the opposition have sussed out his naive tippy-tactics and we can't even score now to catch up the deficits from the appalling first halves. Anyone who picks Manning really hasn't got a clue, therefore we will struggle to get in the play-offs which will be deserved by us. We're miles off the pace to compete at a higher level without considerable money being spent.

Maybe we think we’re a lot better than we actually are hope not,why we have to start of as we think it’s only a 45 minute game l don’t know.We get told that the manager has told them the same thing about starting fast but more often than not we seem to sleep walk the first half so often.Now we have to get our sh##t together again.COYR.

Martin - Why the fvck did you wait til half time to make the changes ?

It was clear from the off that it wasn't working.
Too proud to change it ?
Too scared to admit your mistakes ?
Awful display from Manager and many of the players
You've been found out again

Hull gave us a lesson in football, but you won't learn from it !!

Firstly, you have to congratulate Hull, who were excellent all night.
They worked so hard off the ball, closing down spaces.

They were clever, they refused to drop back, meaning there was no room in mid field, with so many of our passes being run down.

Bazuno's distribution was poor, too many hospital passes at speed into the centre of midfield.
The defence were ambling back, disjointed, and not covering gaps.

Flyn Downes has been a huge miss. There is just a lack of cohesion without him.

I feel like teams are working us out, and we need a few options. I few tired legs out there too.
I think Aribo could do with a little run starting, he has looked really hungry, and holds the ball up well.

I hope we can turn it around-my heart can't take the playoffs!
