This formation has to stop. Morais can never, ever play wingback again.
Oh, but surely just for one day, we could fight and we could win
And if only for a little while, we could insist on the impossible...

Don't care what system you play, we need some physical presence in midfield. Send that lad from West Ham back. Nice tidy player, but we need a scrapper, a monster in there. We struggled in midfield at times last season. And without Spearing, who was average at best we are worse.

Karacan is ok. After him we are just woeful. It's the most critical area. We need physicality and athleticism in there. Desperately need two adding in there. It's as clear as anything.

If we want to play 4-2-3-1 we haven't got the two. Simple as. Need to get them. But we can't.

This is sounding like a clown show. Three breaks, three goals. Morais goes, Burke, Cullen, cross and.....a free kick against Madine. Is Howard in need of questions here? Back they come again and....it's sounding all one sided. What happens next? Buckley tries, they clear easily enough. Hull? CVome on, get a grip lads, we can do better than this. Plenty passing but McGregor clears. Throw us, Morias to Burke, Beevers, Cullen Pratley, ....all pass, pass, but no danger ...yet.....and....we get a throw in their corner and...cleared. All them again and the crowd give it ASllam? Out ( the owner apparently). Not the best timing really? Madine does well, Morais, Pratley, Taylor ..and a throw....Cukken, Pratley....Armstrong, Taylor....gee, can I have a rest. Cullen gives it away and Diamandes breaks and sends one over our bar.

Cullen is having a shocker BWFCi it's true. He just nearly gifted them a 4th.

Free kick them now and.....can we make it 4-3 by full time ( can it snow?) Come on Phil, what's plan B?

Knew at the start of this season we needed to replace Spearing...we can't compete without steel in midfield, this league is too tough. And Parky needs a wobble of his head with this 3-5-2 it's really isnt good enough in this league with our players

Are we actually in the game?.....Pratley breaks and a corner eventually ensues. Morais in, cleared, back we come, and....Burke, Pratley and....the keeper grabs and they break and...a ping pong session eventually sees Howard get the ball. Is it half-time yet....Morais fires one in but McGregor gets it and sets the homers off. Hull have "obliterated2 us says mic man. I'll come back when there's something positive to say....

Pretty fecking annoying this. Derik or a proper defensive midfielder needs to be playing!! We are too easy to play through, it is clear.

Plan A doesn't work, Plan A doesn't work again....so just continue with plan A.

Tactically clueless yet again Parkinson....5 at the back just invites the opposition on, Derby should have been 5 or 6, he just doesn't learn & is as stubborn as Freedman was - at this rate we will be relegated by Xmas and he'll be gone. If your going to play wing backs, play fecking wing backs ....totally out of his depth tactically.

I think we are out of our depth, from the manager right through the squad. We've offered nothing in any area of the pitch.
Embarrassingly easy for Hull.
Hi should switch formation at half time. He won't.

Right then. Last week we were three up and Wednesday got two back and pressured us. Think back to our nine men heroic exploits against Leicester City back in well, about 1840..or so...COME ON YOU WHITES....

Derik on for Buckley. looks like 4-5-1 with Burke at RB and Armstrong wide.
And they nearly scored again.

At least Derik is on. 45mins too late, but at least Parky has (hopefully) seen the glaringly obvious..

Madine is playing the Kev Davies role and looking like four back and five across the park. That's Plan B. Derik in place of Buckley.

Sounds like lots of passing but no trigger-pulling. Lots of analytical chat about this and that, then more chat and...we go and....Madine loses out and they clear. Hector it was, should we try a wooden horse maybe. ? What's that you say, we have Pratley? Ah, right.
