It was pretty crap. We were good in patches and times looked like we could threaten but we were very powder puff and from the moment the second half got underway you could tell we were going to lose. What the hell were our back 4 doing? Time and time again Hull got in behind. We were all over the place. Credit where credit is due though they demonstrated exactly what we don’t have, quality in the final third. Their movement quality of balls and passes were very good and clinical but we didn’t half make it easy for them.
Negatives: Shit defence Delivery awful Soft Indecisive Shocking atmosphere Moore was oxf*rd atrocious
Positives: Rinomhota I stayed til the end and was in the car out the car park at 1701.
Not a good day for us with other teams around us picking up points, don’t expect anything on Wednesday but Brentford is a huge game.
Thought Ejari & Baker we’re reasonable. Meite, for the size of him was a bit of a Jesse today. How many times did we not challenge for the ball in the air. Before the game, I was reading on Hull websites how they were concerned about our counterattacking pace. Soooo many times when we had the chance to break on Hull did we revert to sloth like pace. Nelson is not ready yet. Thought we outfought PNE last week. This week roles reversed.
Martinez getting booked was a bit childish from the ref. He wasnt taking that long was he? I'm pretty sure there is no time limit set for a Goal Kick anyway.
The defence looked a little shell shocked in the second half. I don't know how they were picked apart so easily. They have looked so comfortable recently.
Rinomhota was oxf*rd brilliant. I honestly thought he was the best player on the pitch. He was strong on and off the ball. 2 or 3 times he tackled/intercepted things he had no right to get to. I'm glad I bought his signed jersey because in my eyes hes already a legend.
Baker scored a great goal, tackled really well and looked solid throughout. Hes moved up the loan pecking order for me. Should we survive we most certainly need either him or Ezatolahi back.
Meite and Barrow were pretty much marked out of the game. Barrow was unlucky to not finish his chance and Meite should have restrained himself from shooting from 30 yards out.
Ejaria was a perfect stand in for Swift. His passing isnt as good but his skill on the ball is much better.
Oliveira was a bit shit really. But I dont think he was fit.
That was a sloppy score draw that went away from us because we had so little on the break and they were vicious in the counter-attack. The ball didn't sit for 90 minutes, bobbling around a blustery pitch.
I think at 1-0 or 1-1, we had a few moments when we could have put that away but all three went against us and then it was 2-1 and our resolve went. First, a cross went in and the defender seemed to flick it out of the path of the far post runner. Goal kick awarded. Team didn't settle for a few minutes after. Then, a goal disallowed for offside. OK, likely it was, but a decent head of steam had been built up. At 1-1, Barrow (I think) went through on a one on one. Keeper makes a good save. But it was 2-1 within minutes of that and we had literally nothing to offer after.
