Blues fans react to last night defeat to Hull City.
Absolutely shocking football from 6th to 12th in two games Rooney is clueless
I wonder what the so called owners think of Rooney now ? 🤦🏼♂️🤦🏼♂️ only we can self destruct when we’re onto something positive
Rooney, look at videos of the Huddersfield and West Brom games. 4-2-3-1 Sunjic and Bielik defensive midfielders gave us much needed protection for the others to go forward. It’s a system that made us so hard to beat and until we get new players in we cannot change formation overnight.
We look so open and both Boro and Hull exploited the space.
It is not rocket science to work out why we were 6th.
COuld not understand the subs- we needed a goal and he takes Stansfield off!!!
Anyway on we go. KRO
l just wonder what Eustace is thinking about now surely it tells us something, may have been same if he was not sacked, players are not happy, or just one of those bad days, l do know a little about football and l dont always watch the ball, l look to see who’s has put a shift in. But l cannot talk about the match because l have not watched the game at St Andrews.
Awful. What is our style of play now?? Not enough going forward and defensively we look like we’re being picked-off at will.
Watch the game Rooney is a lucky boy to get this job but seems less interested don’t understand why their have taken a huge risk with this appointment look the person across the bench from him Liam Rosenior goes into Hull City and their play for the manager and tonight their go above us when you look at us some of the players don’t know what they are doing and look beaten after Saturday’s performance. Joys & Sorrows KRO
I don’t care what tactics they were sent out with, what formation they were told, you put on that Blue shirt and you try your best. No one can tell me those players cared tonight. Lazy and couldn’t be arsed ti raise their game. 2 nil down at home and no one got hold of the game and had a go. Pathetic performance and they are lucky Rooney will get the blame. Wheres the leaders, wheres the fight, where was Burke all night for that matter!!!!
Why isn’t sunjic playing?
Bielik Sanderson both look shadows of themselves compared to under Eustace
Unfathomable tactics, I literally have no idea what was going on, like watching a kid’s school match. But the quality of the players on the ball tonight, overall, was diabolical.
The blame lies at Rooney’s feet for the overall set up but the players have to be accountable for their own individual performances. They were shocking at the basics but it’s clear that it’s because they’re struggling badly to adapt to this “system”, it’s painful to watch.
We made Hull look like Man City at times. When Jukey came on we lost the ability to press high up the pitch instantly.
3 centre halves would help, get Aiwu on there too and sacrifice a midfielder, it can’t get any worse. Can it?!
Doesn’t bode well. From the first minute rooney showed zero interest in acknowledging fans, in getting fully involved. His response to everything was to give off the impression he had sleptwalked into the blues job. Soul destroying to see.
Tactically all wrong. I know it’s only the second game for Rooney but I can’t see these players ever settling into the high press tactics that they are being told to play. The main problem I have with the high press, is every time we do this we leave ourselves far too open defensively, leaving huge spaces for the opposition to exploit like Hull did last night. Also the obsession with playing out from the back needs to change, we should mix it up by all means do it when we have the time on the ball but other times go more direct, otherwise we become too predictable as Hull cottoned on and everything we did it, Hull were right there pressurising Blues and we lost the ball far too many times because of this.
My advice to Rooney would be to go back to basics, revert to a more compact, industrious style of play. As these tactics just aren’t going to work, even in the long run in my opinion.
At present there is no proper shape to the team and Hull exploited the space between defence and midfield. A better team would have score 4 or 5 last night against us.
Sort it out Rooney.
