today, we had pretty much nothing to play for other than keep our incredible home form intact - which we did, admittedly, but everything else we did today, or what we didn't do i should say, was very poor indeed. jimmy bullard ran the hull midfield, he'd be a brilliant guy to have in your team if only he wasn't injured half the time! and although it was 'two points dropped,' if anyone deserved to win that, hull did.
they had a fair bit of the possession in the first half, but neither side made much or had many chances. the best chance of the half, and in the end it turned out to be the best chance of the game, fell to hull, only to be denied by a brilliant save by joe hart - how many times have we said that this season. other 'good' chances in the first half fell few and far between, but a long range shot by james mcfadden that was just over, and also a good shots by bowyer and fahey were both saved by hull 'keeper matt duke.
the second half, arguably, was worse than the first. hull probably made more chances, however thankfully, you just couldn't seen them putting any of them away. that, or they we're either offside or playing basket ball (not that the referee noticed..) that last comment brings me onto the referee - mark clattenburg. now i'm never one to blame referees, and in this game i don't lame him; our performance made us drop the points. however he might as well of put on an orange shirt and joined the hull midfield for all he did; he didn't pick up the handballs, he gave everything hull's way; for example when a hull player practically jumped on jerome's back, who got the freekick? who do you think. another incident just before this involved jerome again, and hull city player mcshane, who decided he wanted to jump onto jerome's back - resulting in jerome being penalized for.. well, just being there i think.
