RATINGS: Deeney and co struggle in Hull defeat

BBC Sport Ten-man Hull City claimed a gutsy victory against Watford to ensure they remain outside the relegation zone and in control of their Premier League destiny.

sky Goals from Lazar Markovic and Sam Clucas further boosted Hull’s Premier League survival hopes in a superb 2-0 win over a flat Watford side at the KCOM on Saturday.

TelegraphDown to ten men early on, against a mid-table side, this was the day when Marco Silva’s stunning home run as Hull City manager could have crumbled. Instead, it became arguably the most impressive of all victories at this ground since the Portuguese started master-minding their fight against relegation. 

guardian When Oumar Niasse was controversially sent off with well over an hour remaining, Marco Silva’s impeccable home record seemed in severe jeopardy.  By way of exacerbating the woes of the Hull manager Robert Madley’s debatable interpretation of Niasse’s challenge on M’Baye Niang looked the sort of decision on which relegations can hinge and tens of millions of pounds be forfeited.

BHappy image Ten days ago we went on a road trip.  Only 100 miles or so, so not a vast distance, but the drive from Addis Ababa to Ziway is not to be undertaken lightly.

FranI had a very cultural week all in all, with plays by Tom Stoppard, Tennessee Williams and Shakespeare followed by a cracking evening spent with the Saw Doctors.  I just had to hope that my visit to the city of culture finished the week in style.

The Hornets Nest  I’ve only been to Hull once in my life, back in October 2011. I was in my first year of university, and decided to waste my student loan on the trip up North, to watch a struggling Watford take on a promotion-chasing Hull in the early days of Dyche’s reign.

report: I resent the loss of midweek games, the loss of that looking forward to a week of work being interrupted by this nugget of excitement (or Rotherham at home, whatever) simply to accommodate Manchester United (for example) losing to some Danish team in a bloated competition that will give them plenty of second chances anyway.

 A very poor Hull City visited Vicarage Road and gave Jon, Jason and Mike plenty to talk about. That and a certain forged letter make it another one of those fun weeks to be a Watford fan. COME ON YOU ORNS!

report:There is always something special about the sense of anticipation in a pre-match crowd.  Also, as it was Watford playing Hull, there was neither a ticket tout nor a half-and-half scarf anywhere to be seen.

 report:During half time Harry the Hornet was awarded the ‘Unsung Hero 2015/16’ award. It’s about time he was acknowledged for his efforts on a match day. With stunts ranging from celebrating with the players, to throwing away fan inflatables into the off-limits building site when the Sir Elton John stand was being built. Harry is real entertainment.

8th December 2012- Championship, Watford 1 Hull City 2

BBC SportHull won at Watford for a third straight away victory that moves them up to fourth in the Championship.

BHappy imageIf we’re being as demanding of ourselves as we ought to be, then we should conclude that we were sloppy and complacent for much of the game against Barnsley…and that we got away with it because our opponents weren’t good enough to take advantage. None of that here: Hull set themselves out to stick a spanner into every single one of our stock passing moves, while remaining patient and watchful and quietly potent when possession came their way. They were far too much for us, and that made for a fascinating tussle between what we are and what we might yet be, a revealing insight into how close we are to being the finished article.

14th April 2012- Championship, Watford 1 Hull City 1

http://watford.fcdb.info?id=5012

Troy Deeney’s ninth of the season earned Watford a 1-1 draw against Hull to cancel out James Chester’s opener at Vicarage Road.

Having played 4-5-1 at Cardiff, Sean Dyche had explained his aspiration to a tactical flexibility that would leave us comfortable switching between a number of formations.  Now is undoubtedly the time to try new things of course, but despite that it it has now seen us take points from consecutive games against teams above us in the table there was little sign of 4-5-1 proving terribly effective.

9th April 2011- Championship, Watford 1 Hull City 2

http://watford.fcdb.info?id=4960

Hull’s fine away form continued at Watford as another smash-and-grab win gave them renewed hope of making the Championship play-offs.

The hosts struggled to offer anything beyond long balls but Andreas Weimann did have their first effort as his run and shot crept past the post. The Austrian crashed a volley wide but it was Graham’s involvement that brought them closest to a leveller. The big striker turned at the edge of the area and let fly with a shot that seemed destined for the top corner – until Guzan brilliantly turned it over the bar. 

It’s hard to escape the impression of a team that’s gone about as far as its legs will carry it, walking home because it couldn’t afford the bus ticket and stumbling exhausted through the front door. That we’ve made it at all, let alone with several games to spare, is deeply, deeply admirable. But the eager zest that surrounds our best play has been replaced by something slightly heavier, slightly more saggy. One incident summed it up: Danny Graham breaking forward in the first half, delaying his pass too long, and running clumsily into a defender; just one moment, but so untypical of the player. We lacked a keen mental edge, a certain brightness. Who knows what effect a win might’ve had – that’s rather my point – but nothing about us suggests a team that’s ready to push on towards the playoffs.
