    And in the first 45 mins too.

    I feel a teams going to have to put through their own net to break this bizarre cycle.

    Anyone reckon that Warnock, Harris & McCarthy attempted to have the lads understanding and playing a passing game at pace in training? Weighing things up after watching and saying ‘Nah, not working, can’t do it, lump it up there again on Saturday boys’.

    Absolutely this ^^^

    People have been saying how bad Will Vaulks has been for us, people who probably watch more games than I, and I thought they might have been a little harsh on him.

    If he played in those games I missed anything like that performance from him tonight then I would have to hold my hand up.
    The guy did absolutely nothing positive for our team.

    I mentioned earlier in the thread at half time how poor our midfield were at linking our ball carrier defence with attack and Vaulks just typified this.

    I watched Vaulks while Flint passed it to Nelson who then passed it to Giles who then passed it back to Nelson who then passed it to Flint who then passed to NG (repeat)...
    He literally strolled around watching it happen, never showed for the ball at all. He didn't want it.
    It was no surprise not to see him come back out for the second half as I would think (hope) Morison read him the riot act.

    He wasn't the only one who was poor in that midfield mind you.

    Like a few have already said on here, I was really looking forward to tonight as I thought we may have turned the corner and started to play a bit.
    Looks like have been slightly misguided.
    Steve Morison has his work cut out.

    I feel sorry for Steve Morison but I hope he learns a lesson pretty quickly tonight. He hasn't got the luxury of time so he must ensure he doesn't make the same mistake again: our league position will not allow it.

    I feel sorry for him because I think anyone can see that partly due to the incompetence of previous managers and largely due to the naivety and ineptitude of the board, we have been left with a squad full of also rans. There is virtually no quality in the squad. Instead we have a motley crew of journeymen stealing a living as professional footballers. I don't envy Steve Morison's enormous challenge.

    He is lucky in that our poor quality had led to his getting a chance to shine as a manager; however, because of his inexperience he might have been thrown a poisoned chalice. I genuinely feel he has the ability to succeed but he has been dealt a duff hand with the squad he's inherited.

    On the other hand, notwithstanding the limitation in front of him I hope he has learnt tonight that there is no room for the likes of Pack, Vaulks, Bacuna and Nelson anywhere near this squad. I'm hoping he has learnt this harsh lesson tonight and let's hope we never see them playing in a City shirt ever again.

    Just got in from watching a disappointing game, I can't think of anything positive to say about tonight's game .

    Re: FT: CARDIFF CITY 0 - 1 HULL CITY. Match thread

    We will never draw a team out of shape whilst playing in slow motion. The running off the ball is virtually non existent. Hull were so poor they made us look better than we are in the second half. It was a massive step backwards tonight.

    Same here. The lack of quality throughout this side is alarming. Hull defended fairly comfortably although Collins should have put away that header at the death.

    We have absolutely nothing do we. So easy for Hull to grab a goal and then defend quite comfortably.

    Only player I thought did well was Giles, beat his man quite a few times, has pace. Maybe just the final cross at times lacked but other than him we really have no pace or creativity and he has hardly been consistent this season.

    We're just slow on and off the ball, I think if you watch games back at 1.25x speed it might look normal.

    None of our midfielders who started the game wanted the ball in midfield. It's pathetic.

    What the managers said...

    Cardiff's Steve Morison: "It [booing] must be down to where we are in the league because we've had back-to-back wins. If we are going to get out of this, it is going to take absolutely everybody. Everyone who works at the football club and every fan who comes through the door and watches.

    "You see the difference in performance when the fans get right behind us and try and suck the ball towards the goal with their energy and their noise. Unfortunately, when it goes the other way and we get the negative reaction, it has the opposite effect. I'd ask, if we are going to get out of this, we need the fans to be right behind us."

    Hull's Grant McCann: "Cardiff is a tough place to come and we knew it was going to be a tough game. I thought defensively we were very good and scored a good goal from a set play. We stuck to our task very well. We knew they had a big centre forward and we would have to be good at stopping crosses. We did that for the majority of the game.

    "I'm delighted to have three clean sheets and three wins in a row. We are really, really pleased with the result because Cardiff have been reinvigorated under Steve."

    Steve Morison pre game “ we need to give the fans something to get behind in home games and that starts with 3 points” - what happened there then, to be honest thought the booing was really only loud after that abject first half and more resigned at the end of the game - what does he expect when we rarely see the team win at home and put in a terrible first 45 minutes devoid of any urgency or creativity

    Grant McCann “ Cardiff is a tough place to come to” - no it’s not we’ve lost 7 of the last 8 home games, it’s the easiest place in the Championship to come to and win

    Football manager speak eh!

    Historically speaking perhaps.

    It’s clear Colwill and Isaak Davies need to be on the pitch together, for any creative spark. Ralls too as the gritty enforcer behind them. I think he got it wrong with the starting 11. But we should have taken a point tonight, and that would be 7 from 9. I hope he sees we need Wintle and Watters back in Jan.

    The booing was pathetic and I’m glad he spoke out about it.

    I’ve not been impressed by Morison’s pre and post match remarks.

    I saw almost none in the hour that I watched.

    As everyone else here seems to say, lots of pretty aimless passing, but almost no hoofball.

    I was very unimpressed with what he said last night. Ok he's inexperienced but first rule of being a football manager, you never ever criticize the fans. We are the ones who pay everyone's wages full stop! If the product served up is poor, we have a right to remonstrate: I hope someone in a more senior capacity helps him out with this.

    Apart from that, as I mentioned in a previous post I think it would be good if he acknowledged he made big mistakes with his selection last night. Ok he's on a steep learning curve and the hand he's been dealt is not good, however, it would be a positive move if he publicly stated he's learnt from last night's mistakes and won't make them again.

    Was queuing for a much needed pint at half time so didn't hear the boos then but I thought the full time boos were aimed at the weak ref as he left the pitch. To be fair to Morison, he's right that it helps when the fans are behind the team but it also helps when the team give the fans something to get behind. It doesn't even need to be quality play just some intensity and tempo would get us going
