Slave Bilic knows the trap door is opening both on the team and himself although he decided to talk in the third person when discussing the threat to his job.
But for the first time he came as close as it gets to declaring that he could be for the chop if this goes on…a realist of nothing else.
Speaking immediately after the game he declared: ” “I’m doing my job. I’m motivated. But if we are doing so many mistakes then you will pay the price.”
As those at the bottom start to pick up the pace he added: “They are making up ground. It’s very open and they are closing the gap. With a point we are keeping them nine points behind us, but now it’s six.”
He said he was content with the first half declaring: “I was very satisfied. We were winning, they didn’t have have a shot on target, We neutralised them.
“It was all good until they equalised. They had five minutes of a good spell but then we came back again. To concede a set-piece again, It is very hard to take. We conceded two against Leicester, one against Bournemouth, it’s no good.
“Ranicchia was basically in that position alone, and we didn’t mark him.”
You know things are going badly when the 2 Hull goals come from players who score as regularly as a visit from Hailleys comet.
Even AG managed two point from his last 10 games. Hard to see where they are coming from this time. At least we have a Championship side ready for next season.
We need 6 points from the games against Swansea, Sunderland, stoke and Burnley. Anything from the others would be a bonus.
No point in sacking Bilic now. Too late to repair the damage. But FFS don’t offer him a new contract and hide the transfer budget. We badly need a new coaching staff especially for defence – did you see the space we gave Hull today? I just pray that Cresswell and Randolph are given a rest until the end of the season.
