Haven't watched the game just yet but very happy with the win.

An away win, 3 points, a clean sheet and top of the table deserves celebrations.

But I must agree with most on here to say that the team still doesn't seem to be 100% entirely settled.

Everyone thought a few matches ago that Hegazi would automatically come in for Bartley but that hasn't eventuated.

Bartley is playing good football I understand.

The left back spot is a worry with Ferguson suspended, Gibbs injured and Townsend not defensively sound, although some are saying he's  played OK.

Striker is also a problem with Austin not getting among the goals, Zohore non existant and HRK coming in and scoring goals but as a sub rather than a starter. 

I could go on with all the problems we seem to have - complaints about Livermore's passing and tackling, Sawyers not being effective (apart from today) and Filip and Periera not able to play together.

And despite all of these problems, Slav has us top of the league.

While we haven't been setting the world on fire with our form, at least the guys are playing for each other and the coach.

I am still hoping that at some stage we are going to really unload on a team and rip them apart.

Great result away, shame about the kit change; in one word"ugly"
Livermore looks like a new player this season, its amazing what a new coach and tactics can do for a players confidence. Losing some extra weight has helped too.
I haven't felt this good about watching the Baggies in a long time.

Went to the game. Foundation built on a great save by Johnstone, and a magnificent performance from Bartley. Won by a very good goal from the SUPERB Livermore. Shame about the two bookings, but it's only one game , and then they both have clean sheets. COYB

They don't quite get clean sheets because if they get to 10 bookings they get a 2 game ban (current rate of progress they comfortably will)....15 bookings 3 game ban.

So many good performances on Saturday, but an unsung hero of the match for me was HRK. He ran his socks off, held the ball up, brought other players into the game, played all along the line, was always available to the player with the ball when we were in the final third and was relentless even without receiving much service and no real goal scoring opportunity.

Well done HRK!

Given their current form that was the best result of the season IMO. Everybody played well except Phillips and Diangana who had their moments but were decidedly average with their output. Krovinovic was superb when he came on dictated the possession and completely took the sting out of Hull.

Livermore was fantastic, thought he won a lot of second balls and probably delivered his best performance for the club.

A dogged performance without hitting a lot of the highs that we can.

Thought Diangana in particular was out of sorts apart from about 10 mins before he went off when he started to look to take his defender on. He does seem to bottle out of 50/50s too.

Bartley, Livermore and HRK were the stand out players for me. Townsend did well as did Furlong. The midfield and defence were solid throughout though and we limited Hull to 2 or 3 real chances. We managed to keep Grosicki and Bowen quiet mostly, and when they did get chances Grosicki fluffed his and Bowen was offside.

Krovinovic played well when he came on, but there was a chance at the end when he looked to pass instead of just putting his foot through it about 4 yards out.

Another good away clean sheet against a team that many thought would score.

Now we just need to start keeping those clean sheets at home.

another gritty away performance if only our home form had been as good in terms of securing wins we would be 10 points clear by now , cannot wait till January to hopefully get a striker in who can net consistently whether it be Gayle or A N other and if we are still top 2 by then then it will give us every chance of auto promotion, as far as individual performances go , sure some of these younger lads will go off the boil from time to time , but there are other good young lads chomping at the bit to get in the team, which is what good squads are all about , keep it going you baggie boys

It was a good game, quite open.  Hull had some decent chances to at least get on the score sheet.  We also missed a few clear ones too and I think we deserved the 3 points.  Livermore was excellent.  World class save from SJ. 

I thought one of their players was pretty good, Bowden? (there was 2 with similar names and I can't remember which one it was). He gave the defence a bit of a dodgy time.

No Sawyers\Livermore for the next game, will take a point now I think.  I'd be tempted to go Krov and Barry.

Geez mate, I almost keeled over from lack of breath trying to read that. :)

Whack some full stops in next time before I die of asphyxiation. Ha ha! :)

Bartley again stand out for me after a couple of early wobbles, but honorable mention for Townsend also, i thought he did really well both in defence and offence.

I thought we did well on balance against a quick and skilled Hull team (though with limited end product).  At this stage of the season I see some real positives.  Our defence in my view is improving, and we do not have Hegazi back as yet either.  In the midfield we are outstanding and can dominate play.  Upfront we are weakest.  HRK has performed better than I expected when he has come on as a sub but Austin looks like he lacks fitness and perhaps even a bit of motivation.  Not sure I see anyone else coming through here, so pretty much as we said at the start of the season we need a striker.  I am nervously watching West Ham's position, and despite the positive talk, I think Grady will be recalled.  He is too good for The Hammers not to pull that lever.  Big test against a well structured Owls when we have a couple of suspensions.

The football Gods were with us a bit there, could easily have been 1-1, but well done the chaps for seeing it out, (almost) makes up for Charlton.

Just don't see how he can drop Bartley at present. To my surprise (and that of many others Im sure) he is in excellent form, as is Livermore. Must be the Slav effect!

Be interesting to see what we do for the next game.  There's always the option of Ajayi going into midfield with Krov and Hegazi\Bartley at CH.

think it's Jarrod Bowen you are talking about (the other is Josh Bowler who was subbed, he's on loan from Everton). He had the goal ruled out for offside. Scored 22 last season and has 10 in all comps so far this season. Think his contract is up soon.  Probably end up at lower prem team like Watford.

Ah yeah, that seems the guy, played quite far forward.  He looked like he'd be pretty average but I thought he had a great game and we struggled to contain him at times.  He always seemed to find the right annoying pass when he was under a bit of pressure.  Like a far more skillful HRK.

He's a very good player, far too good to be where he is currently but that will soon change.

We should certainly be trying to get him if regardless of which league we are in next year.

Strong rumours that Leeds will be in for him in Jan (but then the same rumours were about in pre season).

He's from Leominster so maybe would prefer a return to the Midlands?

As I said before though I would imagine he'll end up at a lower end prem club (maybe us next season?!)
