Hull out, If i was a Hull fan a would be asking why the strongest team possible wasnt played, first time in europe and fringe players in, maybe bruce has had enough with his time at manure and just not interested in europa league  


I did read somewhere, due to how many fixtures they would've had because of the league and Europe that Bruce was going to pick a different starting 11 that plays in the premier league

I agree, surely they should have put out their strongest team to ensure they qualified for the group stages before the squad rotation.

Well he's put a different team out for Europe than he has the premier league everytime.

Personally I think he just underestimated the opposition and it's cost them

A friend had a spare ticket last night, and against my better wishes went along to see the game. The outcome is that I will be in no hurry to go back unless Town are playing. It was  lacking in atmosphere, there was no passion among the fans. It seemed like they were only there because the Targers were a premier team in Europe. I am not joking and completely unbiased in saying that the side Bruce put out Town would have beaten! There was absolutely no skill from Premiership squad players. Neilson would have had a field day, Brown would had won every tackle and LJL would have been subject to a million pound offer. Sagbo and Aluko would have struggled in the conference. In fact Aluko's sister looks a better player than him. Give me the conference any day, you are close to the play, you can have a word with the players pre match, they will sign autographs etc. Most importantly you feel part of the club.

Hull will do well if they can finish 4th from bottom of the Prem. They might not be so lucky this year though.

With going out of Europe, signing Michael Dawson and the large amount of rubbish teams in the Prem I'm concerned they might stay up.
