I'm actually amazed at how well we played. 5 changes from the weekend, completely changed our back four, and yet we really took it up to Leeds and honestly should have won 3 or 4-0, had so many clear cut chances we just couldn't put away. Leeds looked all at sea and a few players looked positively awful. Maybe they just had no interest in a Cup run, not sure, but the fact it went to penalties was cruel so a loss would have been hard to take.

Bowen up next will be great.
I was expecting a 5-0 loss so i'm happy with our performance.

You just got battered by a League One side, the state of you. :tearsofjoy: :rainbow:

Back in your box Joop.
Enjoy it mate, I remember when we were in League 1 and beat our biggest rivals on their home deck in the FA cup, it was glorious. Highlight of the year for you (besides every time Leeds lose)

It might be the highlight of the year until this time next week when we play Bowen's mob off the park.

If anything it was mildly disappointing we didn't win by more, a lot to work on but the squad looks very impressive and if we're being honest with ourselves and maintain that standard should walk League One with ease. Then I guess we'll have two meetings next season with you to look forward to.

If Hull are good enough to get promoted twice in the 1 season I very much look forward to those meetings next season.

Grats SM :)

Not terribly bothered by the loss personally, we just need to take business against Fulham in the league on the weekend, but its been a while since Hull fans have had anything to cheer about, so I begrudgingly give you this win :)

You’re not worried about the quality of our back ups?
Oliver Casey a central defender playing CM, Shackleton at RB and 17 year old Cresswell and Bogusz aren't our first team backups.

Roberts needs to be sold/loaned imo and Barry Douglas is absolute sh*te, hopefully the Celtic interest is genuine.

Alioski was gash, but I don't think he will see too much of it this season frankly, Poveda was much better when he came on and Summerville has just been signed for further competition.


Davis will be an extremely good LB and he was being played as a CB whilst Casey was being played as a CM.

There were some players in there that should of played better, no doubt, but the other half was absolutely experimental. Striujk came on and played the Klich role ffs....

Not at this stage. Losing a penalty shoot out to a lower tier/division team in the league cup has become a regular occurance these days among Premier League Clubs.
The fact it even went to penalties was hugely flattering for you, it was a pretty poor performance. Your first shot on target was in the 89th minute..

Summerville is under 18 player, Alioski Kiko, Douglas and possibly Roberts not up to it. Expect more than that even if experimental

But you don’t expect lower div team to double shots and your team just one shot on target.
