Soccer Betting: Bruce pleased with Hull City despite loss
By Andrew Scott Tuesday, 3 September 2013 01:23
Soccer betting fans found out that even though Hull City boss Steve Bruce praised his squad, he lamented their lack of innovation with his side after their 2-0 away loss on Saturday to Manchester City.
Pay per head services saw that in the first half, Bruce’s squad was very impressive, and they should have definitely taken the lead as Sone Aluko went through on goal, but he was only able to scuff wide when he was one-on-one with Joe Hart.
The team also appeared to be solid at defence, but soccer betting fans saw that Alvaro Negredo nodded his side in front after the hour as the hosts increased the pressure, with Yaya Toure making a superb late free-kick.
But pay per head services learned that the former Sunderland and Wigan boss, who also saw his side at Chelsea go down 2-0 in their season’s first game, was encouraged by his team’s performance against one of the Premier League title favourites, and many fans that follow the squad and bet soccer remain optimistic.
He said: “We couldn’t have asked for more really. Our Achilles heel in the championship last year was ‘can we score enough?’
“Certainly we’ve got really good players, and we’ve added to that, and you can see why we’ve come out of the Championship with the way we played. But we need to score.
“I’ve been here a few times since the change – I think I’ve had more chances today than I’ve had in six games against them so we needed to take one.
“But overall I’m very, very pleased.”
And many soccer betting fans were also happy with the quality of their play despite the fact that they didn’t win the match.
Hull City’s soccer betting fans were at the edge of their seats when they saw Danny Graham’s strike in the first half chalked off for offside, and price per head services learned that even though Bruce said that the decision was not the right one, he lamented his side’s bad luck.
He said: “The linesman gives an offside, which he’s right, but he’s two inches offside
“I thought these days (the benefit of the doubt) was supposed to go to the attacker, but when you see it and you realise how close it is it’s a big call.
“You need that little bit of luck when you come here but it wasn’t to be.”
Pay per head services and many fans that bet soccer saw the team make an overall good performance, and would like to see their luck change in future matches.
