I actually thought this was an interesting game in the first half.
The two counter-attacking teams were pretty evenly matched and Hull actually sat back even more than we do at home.
Gabby had the best chance with a shot down the middle that stung the goalie’s hands, but that apart there was little to talk about.
Second half, I thought Bruce brought them out to attack us more, which I thought might play into our hands, but the truth is we lacked any cutting edge, the same as Hull did.
The game then retreated to a situation where both sides looked like they would be happy with a point, which is basically what we got.
Tedious probably sums it up and I really don’t know what else to say.
A couple of points.
Hull are extremely poor and are one of my faves to go down (what does that say about us?).
Kuzak? Sorry, I just don’t see it. Far too lightweight for a tall Prem striker, but early days.
Weimann? No comment.
Foul throws? Three this season and two in this game alone. That’s so bloody basic, each offence should be a week’s wages fine. I learned this at the age of seven and if Prem players don’t know this one, well I don’t know what to say.
I have to say, I thought the defence did everything expected of them, but that’s not really saying a lot, as Hull looked as toothless as us.
How we missed Benteke today.
The point is, this should have been three points in the bag, as Hull are really poor.
Ah well, the Villa all over, I guess.
As you may have gathered, I’m not a happy bunny today.
Big plus point; The Villa fans sounded immense on the telly.
Well done lads.
