    Better Bullen till Bruce

    Understandable given that they pushed aside a caretaker who had taken 8 points from 4 games against some top 6 sides and had brought back some optimism. The talk since has been of attacking football but we have had 2 shots on target in 2 games. I am looking forward to Bruce but don't hold out too much hope for the games remaining before he arrives.

    In general yes. But West Brom are a much better outfit than Hull and even when they had 11 men 2 weeks ago we coped with what they had well and looked a threat ourselves. We were 2nd best almost from the 1st whistle today and never looked like being in with a chance of getting anything, that has to be tactical as well as ability-based.

    He did look out of his depth last time, the Burton home game was appalling and I had reservations about leaving him in charge for any length of time again. However, maybe he learned a few things from his 1st spell as to his credit he stood up to be counted when called upon again this time and we actually looked like a team with a specific - and effective - game plan again for 4 games.

    Absolutely nothing going forward today.

    Agree, we have won games that were less enjoyable to watch this season than that performance was and I came away looking forward to seeing us play again, which had been lost under Jos and the last 2 matches seem to have taken away that renewed belief in the team.

    Set up the only goal of the game in the recent win at Boro and played in the ball that resulted in our goal in the 1-1 draw against Brum, just from recent games.

    They certainly haven't looked like they are playing with a smile on their face in the last 2 games whereas in the 4 games previous there was clearly some level of enjoyment on the pitch which was reciprocated in the stands.

    He got to a play-off final last season and promoted in 2016 so I wouldn't write his approach off just yet! The focus now however is on Agnew's record as a caretaker, which is shocking. It's not something I have looked into before today but when the club decided to put him in charge for a month I would have hoped they'd have considered it.

    Glad we've only got 1 league game now before that, should be a winnable one but not based on the last 2 games.

    Hard to argue against that at the moment isn't it. Agnew has talked a good game of expansive play and attacking threat yet we had a couple of shots on target at home to a League One side and none on target today. His record as a caretaker is scary as well.

    To be fair there have been plenty of contenders in that respect but the fact that the 2 performances under Agnew have been pretty poor on the back of the renewed positives that the previous 4 games had brought does not bode well.

    Agree about the attack but can't say the defence are blameless today, plenty of teams manage to play with no attacking threat yet at least manage to defend as a unit. We could easily have been 3 down before they deservedly took the lead. Shocking performance all round and Agnew's absymal record as a caretaker manager should perhaps have been taken into account before giving him this position for a month.

    Hull City 3 : 0 The Wednesday OMDT

    To be fair I have learnt that the Manager of the Month award isn't a curse if your team are playing Sheffield Wednesday next.

    Make them wait for the next one if they aren't!

    Lookman deal done....wow

    I meant the 'journalist' had put 2 and 2 together based on the supposed previous link with Holgate and got 5 and has run with this to get more twitter followers. Zero tweets before today - seems to have worked for him!

    Seems to have put 2 and 2 together to get 5 based on this. Have you checked out the twitter history of this guy........... Read the reports from yesterday's game, what his manager had to say about him and what their fans say. This is a non-starter.
