Our first loss of the season! Somehow I can’t see many people shedding a tear though. The Carling cup may be a decent piece of silverware but the overwhelming feeling is that we have bigger fish to fry. Survival in the premier league is, rightly so, Hull citys priority. This was confirmed by Phil Brown, who fielded a completely different starting eleven from the team that picked up a point against Blackburn Rovers at the weekend.
Both managers here looked to experiment, newly promoted Swansea made eight changes to the starting line up. Hull looked better in the first half. Seemingly falling apart and losing shape in the second. Phil Brown admitted that the best team had won and that is that. No carling cup run this year, but on the flip side it’s one less distraction.
