Well I don't know, we should have been out of sight in this game but were not able to see Hull off.
We went ahead when SWP fired home just before half time, unfortunately Hull were awarded a penalty which Jimmy Bullard converted. Goals and highlights below.
I just can't believe that we didn't win this game, we scored and then just went through the motions. We were pressing forward a lot but on a whole didn't seem to bothered about finishing Hull off. Hull were not even trying to play football their game plan was obviously to kick us at every opportunity and see how it went.
I have to blame Mark Hughes for this result I'm afraid, he did nothing to change the way we were playing and seemingly handed Hull the opportunity to snatch something from the game. Hughes dropped Bellamy today for Robinho and although Robinho looked alright, how can you drop a player in Bellamy's form? He also did nothing about our midfield, well I say midfield not that there actually was one on the pitch. SWP and Robinho were playing to far forward to be considered as midfielders and it left us exposed again.
Hughes also should have made more effective changes, SWP had one of those days again where he scored but did not much more apart from a few decent runs that came to nothing as per usual, I felt Weiss should have replaced him at some point in the second half. He also should have yet again tried to see the game out and brought Kompany on to give the defence more support along side de Jong. To be honest there was so many options available to Hughes that could have changed the game and he just refused to use them.
I know a lot of City fans are now crying out for Hughes to be sacked, I myself am still 50/50. If he was to get sacked I would not be bothered, but I am not quite ready to call for his head as I have a burning desire to see us have some continuity. The way it is going he will get sacked shortly if our poor run continues and if I am honest the only way that we can get out of this rut is if Hughes were to some how miraculously learn how to be tactically aware.
