Hull v Liverpool

Postby Conner99 » Tue Nov 26, 2013 8:48 pm

Hull suffered a 1-0 defeat against Crystal Palace and despite most of the ball they could not find the back of the net , it was left to manager Steve Bruce to explain what went wrong .." "We're disappointed in the way we played. We just didn't create enough. The longer it went on you could see they were getting more confident. "It's difficult at our level to find someone who can score the goals you need but we have to get back to finding a way to get results ".



Liverpool rescued a point against Everton as the merseyside derby proved to be a real cracker ...it finished 3-3 and it was a last minute equaliser from Daniel Sturridge that had manager Brendan Rodgers punching his fists in the air and he was quick to talk about the fighting qualities of his team after the match . The point was enough to keep Liverpool in second place in the table ..

PS Conner - You didn't mention in your match topic that Hull has just been named as a city of culture. :)

I really enjoyed last weeks Merseyside derby and if Liverpool play as well again they should pick up all 3 points.

Hull City 0-2 Liverpool

I think this could prove to be a difficult fixture for the reds ,and if Gerrard allows
Huddlestone and co time on the ball we could find ourselves once again needing
our strikers to tip the scales in our favour.



Hull 0- Liverpool 1

I agree with Redpelt, I think it will be a tight affair with the Merseyside club coming out on top. I'd like to see as open a game as the derby was, but to play like that every week is courting defeat. Hull 0 Liverpool 1.

Did you know that Hull City and Liverpool have met 16 times in all competitions and the Tigers have never won (W0 D4 L12).

Any more comments or predictions?

Sturridge went over on his ankle in training :cry: Rodgers likely to go
with either Aspas or Moses ...I'm optimistic about seeing Aspas alongside
Suarez both are very technical players ,and could develop a decent understanding
of one and others respective game. I also think the criticism of Iago has been
from some quarters ott in many respects ,considering he was asked to play a
role that was alien to him.

Once again a very lacklustre performance from Liverpool,no creativity,no determination and in the end no points.....against Hull City....who just recently lost at home to Crystal Palace....only Liverpool can do this each season against newly promoted teams...

Watford,Ipswich and Barnsley to name a few have all beaten Liverpool comfortably and now Hull are the latest team to do it...our mental attitude is seriously pathetic and it's not gonna change any time soon.

If we can't break down and even get a draw and not even deserve to against a team like Hull then we are in serious trouble,7th place is gonna be ours for the next few seasons.

Without any doubt Palace gave Hull a better game last week,Hull had plenty of confidence to attack us today and put us constantly on the back foot knowing full well they could hurt us,our defenders looked like schoolboys just hoofing it anytime they had the ball....our midfielders constantly gave it away to a Hull player and we were wide open everytime...Henderson,Gerrard,Moses and Sterling all went into hiding but will still get the huge paycheck....makes me sick!

Our latest games were gonna be Hull,then Norwich and West Ham at home...9 points up for grabs but as Liverpool do we slip up against the lesser teams and play catch up.

Hull City put 3 goals past us....enough said.

Good luck Arsenal as this is where Liverpool wave you away into the distance,our feeble attempt is over early once again as we go and curl up into a ball and shy away and let the bigger boys take over.

Absolutely stellar! The strength of the Premiership shines through once again with another "shock" result!

Suarez looked off form from the start today i must say!

He had no support mate

Gerrard,Henderson and Lucas were almost playing behind Skrtel and Toure and Sterling and Moses created nothing and weren't really expected to as both can't cross,pass or beat a player on the run..

Then the 3 midfielders i mentioned above all lack creativity...

For Suarez to be at his best we need Coutinho,Sturridge and a fully fit Johnson and Enrique as this gives us creativity as well as balance,right now we are playing a right back at left back so he will always cut inside and the player playing in front of him (Sterling,Moses or Coutinho today) all cut in also so it gives us no balance or width at all.

I think Rodgers couldn't have been more wrong with his selection if
he had played Suarez in goal ,the line up he chose simply handed
the initiative to Hull before a ball was even kicked in anger.

I couldn't believe how good the bench was allowed to remain with
Rodgers ridiculously bizarre inclusion of Sterling as a provider for
Suarez .....We have a striker on the bench ,who has yet to play
a full game in his desired position ,and we play a kid so prone to
drowning he has a seat reserved on the Titanic.

Why Rodgers dropped Agger would completely elude even those
with a place in Mensa ....Rodgers decidedly obtuse train of thought
in replacing Agger with Toure was always destined for abject failure
It simply resulted in instilling indecision in our back four.....coupled
with a quite abject performance from Johnson ,who on this form
would have had trouble coordinating the action of placing one foot
in front of the other.

Liverpool were bad today ,not just a freak result ,but intrinsically bad
from the back to the front.....The need and in this current climate
urgency that Rodgers has to start selecting a side comfortable with
each other has never been so apparent,and the call for a settled
back four has never echoed so loudly.

I agree Agger should never have been dropped in favour of Toure as we both say this resulted in our defence just hoofing it up field,Agger would have given us more composure.

The only thing i can say to defend Rodgers' decision was to give the defence more strength against Hull's big striker (i forget his name),but if so then why not go to the 3-5-2 again and have Aspas partnering Suarez...the only downfall to this would have been Flanagan playing left wing back though.

If dropping Agger was a tactical decision ,then such nuances are lost on me mate.
If Toure's selection is indicative to Aggers display against Everton ,then I'm afraid
he's barking up the wrong tree so to speak ,because the catalyst for our conceding
goals against Everton was quite clearly a useless Johnson who again today polarizes
opinions on what a defenders attributes should be..... Johnson was abysmal earlier
and left both central defenders covering flanks they should be leaving to the fullbacks
I also thought the communication between our defenders was practically non existent
this is a plus Agger seems to have in abundance.

My solution would be to make Agger captain and let him scream the orders from the back
let him organize his defence accordingly and find him a regular partner ,as all this chopping
and changing is affording us no joy whatsoever,and even less solidity.

Didn't see the game but listened to the radio commentary first half. Slightly surprised that Liverpool didn't go on to win after Gerrard equalised, the Liverpool of old would have done. The 'Pool went odds on to win after the Gerrard goal, so I'm guessing the bookies were expecting Liverpool to put on the gas as well. Some opportunity for Liverpool to get their season back on track in the coming weeks with games against some of the weaker teams. Just hoping they have another bad day at the office when they come to the Lane in a couple of weeks!
