Encouraging results against Sunderland and Everton now seem a distant memory after the 3-0 loss at West Ham United - and the prospect of relegation is becoming more and more daunting.
Steve Bruce's side, of course, haven't been helped by a long list of injuries. But nor were they helped by a lethargic performance against West Ham, as goals from Andy Carroll, Morgan Amalfitano and Stewart Downing put Hull to bed.
And Tigers fans were particularly worried by former Tottenham duo Jake Livermore and Tom Huddlestone. The midfielders produced poor displays against the Hammers and Livermore especially has been accused by several supporters of being one of West Ham's best players (!) such was his level of inaccurate passing.
Some Hull fans also still appear livid that Tottenham demanded such high prices for the midfield pair - Daniel Levy isn't known as a tough negotiator for no reason. Where next for the ex-Spurs duo after the West Ham loss? And what next for Bruce when it comes to winning his side some desperately needed points?
The Tigers need improvement as a whole but their ex-Tottenham pairing seem to need to pull their socks up the most, if Twitter is to be believed...
Another poor outing from Livermore today too. Did he complete a pass? So wasteful in possession. #hcafc— Richard Walker (@rwalkerdotcom) January 18, 2015
Davies, Huddlestone, Livermore. They all have more to give but are not doing it. They must improve. #hcafc— John Uzzell (@Uzzell01) January 18, 2015
How many times did Livermore pass the ball to West Ham in the second half! Lost count,he played ok in the First half #hcafc.— Geoff Thornes (@GeoffThornes) January 18, 2015
When relegated, how will THud, Livermore, Davies, McGregor, Dawson rate their performances over the season. I know how I'll rate them #hcafc— Football Thoughts (@Football_Musing) January 18, 2015
Hats off to Daniel Levy, he's had our pants down for Jake Livermore, absolutely #hcafc— Andy (@AndrewAuld) January 18, 2015
