In my opinion trying to protect the lead is the right thing with our defence.

We regularly get carved open when we have 11 men on the pitch, trying to play more attacking football with 10 I think would have been even more of a disaster than that was. 

For me woodgate is stuck between a rock and a hard place and those dropped 2 points fall squarely on the shoulders of johnson.

Agreed. I still think bringing Clayton on was the right choice, we just can't defend to save our lives.

You're talking a load of crap.

I was out at a 6 year olds birthday party. Saw we were 2-0 up and was upset that I was missing the performance of the season. Got home then with 5 mins to play only to find out it was 2-2 and we were down to 10! My god we were awful in that 5 minutes I watched though. 

Still.... positives:

We are no longer in the relegation zone and no longer the lowest scorers in the league 😀 

Also we have way too many draws (WDL 2/8/7) every other team bar Barnsley has 4 wins at least but QPR in 12th have lost as many as us, Bristol in 7th have drawn as many

What a bunch of surrender monkeys. Did we even get out of our own half in the second half? Even at 10 men we should be able to cope with Hull when 2-0 up.

We are obviously going to defend with 10 against 11 but we didn't need to be so deep. That doesn't mean to say we should be attacking with 11 men but we basically surrendered 3 quarters of the pitch for most of the second half.

Let's all blame Johnson for Woodgate's tactics after he got sent off 🙄🙄🙄

 

Manager is at fault for his team changes and the rest of the players are at fault for completely bottling it and letting Hull dominate the 2nd half. 

Yes Johnson deserves some stick...but he's far from the only one.

Cruising till that *** clown Johnson committed football suicide, Woodgate's tactics 2nd half absolutely pathetic, take Fletcher off and play right into Hull's hands, gave Hull license to dictate the play and come forward without any offensive threat from us. poor poor managerial decisions. Its obvious Woodgate and the backroom staff haven't got a *** clue.

I disagree because stats show we have coincided no worse than many other teams and the way Brit was playing a bit of support could have taking more pressure off. Hull defensively were not great and a bit of pressure could have given us time or even an opportunist goal. I blame Woodgate.

I havent read through all the comments yet, but I am a little bewildered that we heard people boo at the end. Yes we went from 2-0 to 2-2 but it was with 10 men for quite a long time and the players that were on the pitch put a shift in.

It's not hindsight I really couldn't understand bringing Clayton on at half time and leaving Britt totally isolated. Tav is not and never will be a left back. Johnson was stupid, but Woodgate takes a big share of the blame for blowing a wonderful chance to get a win. By all means defend if you have the players but you still need to hav some posession.

I’m normally one of Woodgate’s biggest critics but you’re deluded if you’re putting the blame on him for today. 
 

We were in complete control before Johnson decided to be an absolute idiot. 
 

it was inevitable we were going to sit back and protect second half. There aren’t many managers in the world who wouldn’t, especially given our position in the league. Who’s to say we wouldn’t have lost 5-2 if we had decided to keep going at Hull. At the end of t he say we were only broken down by a worldie and then the nerves kicked in. 
 

Today is 100% down to Johnson. I hope he’s sold in January. Coulson should be starting in that position anyway.

    • It depends which Boro turn up. We're due a win though. Maybe Britt will be firing on all 4 cylinders this time instead of being as nervous as a kitten every time we play them. There's no crowd to put him off. WE need a long run off you Erimus 74. Do your stuff...      7: For those planning to visit Australia when this Covid pandemic ends Burger King in Australia is called Hungry Jack's, due to © issue in Oz They're both crap but Burger King is less crappy, or slightly superior to Macdonald's, which is more popularly known as Macca's here in Australia.
    • Which Pearson?  Nigel Pearson as manager (I'd rather keep Warnock...) or the Preston player that's just signed a new contract there (was mentioned on here before he signed new contract)? 
    • If we're including loans, did Kalas have two loans with us (or was it the other defender we had on loan around the same time)?
    • Interesting how the gazette are starting to run Pearson articles... 
    • Didn't realise they had started to turn the corner, a few years back it didn't matter what form they were in when playing us we would never beat em, this winless run started in 1974 & finished in 1999 We fared better since but I don't like playing Forest at all, it's always one fixture, Leeds been the other when in the same league, that I look for & hope they're out the way early doors
