    I actually thought city played better yesterday than most of our home performances but individual errors and the fact that they were far the better team meant the result was the same.
    But at least we tested their keeper yesterday something we didn’t do once against Harrogate

    First half hour we weren't so bad, we arguably played worse first half against Harrogate and Crawley. But after that half hour we were generally bloody awful. 4s and 5s in Parkers ratings tells you all you need to know. Worst defensive performance of the season, could and should have been a 6 or 7 nil drubbing

    I left early on 86 minutes. It is a rare occasion. I was thoroughly fed up with the team, plus other factors. Am I ashamed. No not at all. In fact I don’t feel like going to the next match so might be missing for 90 minutes. I am no lover of 4th division football. However I do enjoy the endeavour that happens in this division to make up for the lack of skill. Yesterday far too many players gave up and the score in all honesty could have been a lot worse.

    Smallwood was shocking yesterday and why he took that free kick only to make a balls of it made it 10 times worse

    I honestly cannot fathom why the manager continues to play this way and why he continues to allow Smallwood on any set piece ?????? I bet the stats at actually creating anything are shockingly low

    Smallwood can't even get a corner in the box, never mind a free kick in the net

    Agree entirely.
    Love the sanctimonious attitude of some on here.
    What the f@ck has it got to do with anybody else if people leave early.

    You'd have been better stopping to the end to beat the traffic.

    What was most frustrating for me yesterday was that we are more than capable of beating Northampton but was let ourselves down.
    I genuinely went to that game looking for a solid home win off the back of two great away wins.

    It was a fairly even game up to the first goal and then we sort of imploded.

    I had just looked at the clock and saw we had been playing 24 mins and thought blimey that has flown by. Was enjoying the contest-two capable teams going toe to toe. Good game and then......

    Songo'o-well I shut my eyes when he is swinging his leg to kick the ball. Cook and Oliver colliding numerous times. Did notice Oliver won virtually all his headers though. Smallwood off the pace again at home-cannot be the crowd as Hull are also well supported so he would be used to big home crowds.

    Why was Wright not brought on at HT? Eisa had a few shots from range but cannot recall him beating his man to get a cross in. Wright got behind them a few times and looked really dangerous.

    I did notice we ditched the playing out from the back for large parts of the game.

    We were well beaten by a team that wanted it more on the day.
