“What were they doing?” – Hull concede TWO incredibly calamitous goals at Swansea

Hull managed to concede TWO incredibly calamitous goals at Swansea as the Welsh outfit took advantage of the howlers for all three points.

The Tigers were in disarray and the hosts in dreamland with Fulton played in inside the area and loses his footing, letting it run through to Figueirdo.

Baxter tries to slide in and jump on it but pulls out at the last moment, before Figueirdo takes a touch and goes down off the ball.

That leaves it on a plate for Cundle to tuck home his first goal in senior football – and he’ll never have an easier one!

Just a few minutes before, Swansea finally broke the deadlock with Cundle looking out wide to Sorinola, who dribbled into the box from the right and held it up.

He switched the ball onto his left and lifted it to the back post, where Manning caught Vale on his heels to get beyond him and volleyed it past Baxter.

Prior to that, Swansea had hit the woodwork three times.

The first just 5 minutes in, Swansea came close – but not quite close enough!

It was a lovely ball over to the right for Manning, who was given a fair amount of space by Coyle. He looked up and picked out Piroe in the middle, and the Dutchman’s rising strike cracked off the bar.

On the verge of half time, the ball went off the bar as the game sprung into life – a near miss for Swansea!

Piroe let the ball run across him after a lovely ball forward from Cabango which beat the offside trap. He went for power from 15 yards and might well find the back of the net but for a fingertip save from Baxter, who tipped his effort onto the bar.

Some really nice one-touch build up from Swansea, including one clearly offside but unpunished, ended with the ball falling for substitute Cundle, who rattled the woodwork for a THIRD time with Baxter beaten.

“It could be one of those days,” says Sky Sports’ Don Goodman. It’s certainly feeling like it.

In the 85th minute, it was another howler, another Swansea goal!

Figueirdo looked like he wants the ground to swallow him up, and you can understand why.

Taking a short pass from Baxter, he tried to look forward into midfield but only played the ball straight to Piroe.

The Dutchman’s touch was heavy but he still does enough to keep possession ahead of the defender, and leathered it past Baxter to add Swansea’s third.

Ahead of the 3pm kick-offs, the Swans moved up to 13th in the Championship on the back of their third win of the season, while Hull stay 18th but could be leapfrogged by four teams below them by the end of the weekend.

This is what fans had to say as Hull concede TWO incredibly calamitous goals at Swansea…

@hundredhcafc: get figs out this team

@MattyHC5: Sack him immediately

@SeriFan1904: Yep time to go now

@JordanBooth10: Terminate that man’s contract

@hcafcjackk: Drop figeuredo please

@lukewhitehouse7: I thought we were bad, you lot take the piss.

@windas12: Where’s those people who said we will finish in the top 6 😂😂😂😂😂 #hcafc

@AndrewDaviesHC: Figs and shota out

@elliotbean_9: What the fuck have I just seen

@Helltic88: Outplayed in nearly every game this season. Shota needs to go

@EastRider39: Shota out this is an utter disgrace.

@AdamHCAFC_: We probably have the worst defence in the top four tiers in England

@JoPSmith25: Bring off our striker for a defender and we still conceded

@ElmBarrie: Absolute shambles

@MikeHassan30: Shota had a transfer window that other managers could only dream of. He chose not to strengthen the defence, granted, injuries and all that jazz but it’s not good enough to put Ona performance of that calibre at this level. We’ve just been humiliated across the globe. Out. #hcafc

@LiamFoster4: Throw as much money at Sean Dyche as he wants, and do everything we can to get him whilst he’s still available. Players have zero confidence in Shota, and his decision making so far has been woeful. We will go nowhere fast unfortunately if we don’t make some big changes. #hcafc

@Whiting9: Only fools judge teams on individual games but 10 games is a fair time to review #hcafc this season. Last season in the main we were one of the best sides out of possession but, KLP apart, lacked the ability to do anything when we had it. Opposite this season.

@cr_hcafc05: by no means do we have a bad squad aswell. 3 internationals, 2 promotion winning players from a year prior, 2 loanees from arguably the best academy in the country. this is not down to the players. we have a top 6 squad being squandered by a hand gesture merchant #hcafc

@j_atkinson04: Different formation, different players, same shit. Shota out #hcafc

@DanGibs19808267: @acunilicali Shota needs to go, international break now. A new manager can work with players and get this mess sorted. 21 goals in 10 games is relegation form. SEAN DYCHE knows how to defend. #hcafc #seandyche please Acun. You know what to do

@CornHoleDavis: So we have internationals, players that have played in European completion, players that have gotten promotion from the championship, yet the players look like they’ve never kicked a ball before, what does that tell you? #hcafc #shotaOut

@Dansmith_HCAFC: Defensively awful, midfield stand off, let teams pass around them and don’t put tackles in and attacking wise we don’t have a clue. We don’t seem to have any style of play, so poor #hcafc

@inamberandblack: I like Shota as a person. As our manager, not so much. The squad is skewed, the team has no cohesion and ideas. No-one seems to know their role. The defence is non-existent, midfield constantly outnumbered and overran, no attacking intent, don’t get me started on Figueredo #hcafc

@MattyHC5: Heard it all before, said it all before. Pointless saying much else anymore. Players don’t want to play, shota is inept. Acun must be absolutely steaming right now and rightfully so. Sad to see. #hcafc

@AntNorthgraves: Losing Allahyar was the moment the Season turned IMO. His running at defenders and stretching defenders gave the midfield time and space to create things. Without him, we’ve done nothing. Tetteh as an outlet to hold it up too. We can’t get out of our half #hcafc

@lillmatty90: @acunilicali, With the greatest of respect this is awful for us fans.
– Performances are shit
– Results are shit
Either, the players don’t respect Shota and follow his tactics or he isn’t good enough. Both have the same outcome. Refund the travelling fans #Hcafc

Usually, I’d be an advocate for giving a bit more time for the Manager but considering we
– We aren’t offering any attacking threat
– Worst defence in the League
– Doesn’t know his best system
– No Away wins
– Doesn’t look like it’s going to change
