In games like this the only statistic of any significance is that we scored once and Hull scored twice. Though maybe another statistic is worth noting which is that we have conceded our 3rd goal from a corner in 6 PL games. That was something we appeared to have cured last season but it is a failing that is beginning to hurt us once again. I wasn't able to get to this game and haven't seen any highlights but looking at the individual player stats Hull seem to have suppressed our wide play from both midfield and full backs succesfully. Maybe Walcott from a wide position is still a little too easy to predict to be able to breakdown sides like Hull and Eboue seems to have had little effect down the left. Strangely it doesn't look as though we were willing or able to switch them at anytime with both sticking firmly to their alloted sides of the pitch.

If you look at our corner stats of all our games so far, its consistently 10+ in every game. We do not convert enough of our corners. Today Cesc' delivery was poor. Corners are something that we need to utilise more effectively. Hull had 4 corners and scored from one. We had 15 and scored none.

Here is one sobbering statistic that will surely make my weekend even worse, and I may be wrong on this one but no team has yet won the league after losing two of their first six games. Right? I'm still not sure why this loss bothers me so much but it may that it highlighted everything that we knew was wrong with the team at the start of the season and could have addressed but didn't. I am afraid that our title challenge may have ended before it has even started. Somehow I couldn't picture Chelsea or ManU with this loss.

Czar - I feel much like you in that I think it's going to be extremely difficult to see this as a potential championship winning season when you have reverses like this and Fulham. We've got a very tough run of fixtures coming up. Today is was almost as though we thought we just have to turn up and play our normal game and we'll win. There's such a fine line between confidence and complacency I guess.

That no team has yet won the league after losing two of their first six games might seem a sobering statistic but you would have to balance that against the fact that ManU managed to win the title last season despite having one point less than we currently have from their first 6 games.

Ok, I am so disgusted by the performance and lack of commitment. I wonder who made some money on todays result.

Sunderland away and Spurs play Hull. Watch the Spuds turn them over easy.
