One of Joe Kinnear’s responsibilities as manager after Liverpool’s crushing defeat is to get the lads prepared for our important game at Hull City on Saturday (3:00 pm KO), in the 3rd round of the FA Cup.
Joe Kinnear – has to get lads ready for Hull game
Joe talked about this today with nufcTV:
”Of course the Liverpool game was a major disappointment for everyone connected with the club.”
”But we have to get that out of our system ahead of Hull.”
“This is a massive game in the context of our season and it’s my job to make sure the lads are fully prepared.”
”We will have the backing of the Geordies again and I cannot thank them enough for their support recently.”
“Now it’s up to us to hopefully give them a good cup run because I know the tradition of the competition up here.”
Hull City play Aston Villa at home today in the Premier league, so Joe should be able to watch that game and check on Hull City, who have not been in good form recently.
We would expect Villa to win this game fairly easily as Hull have just 7 league points from their last 10 games.
We should point out that the FA Cup is the only trophy we can win this season, but after the Liverpool hammering on Sunday, we are not too confident – and that shouldn’t come as any surprise. 😀
Before the Liverpool game, we seemed to be able to gibe any team a game, but with our injuries, which always seem to be much worse than other Premier League clubs, we were decimated on Sunday.
But we suppose anything is still possible ion this strange game of football, so we’ll not give up hope just yet.
