Warnock's men were outplayed by their hosts, who were rewarded by goals from Corry Evans and David Meyler in a three-minute spell early in the second half.

"I think Hull are a one-off, I don't think there's another team like them in the league," Warnock said.

"They are by far the best organised team in the league. They play the same home and away. They have a good squad with decent replacements."

And Warnock hopes he can strengthen his squad in the January transfer window in order to chase a play-off spot this term.

He added: "I feel the frustration that the fans feel with our squad, but we're all glad it's January coming up. I'm trying to get new players in, the new owners are supporting me and want to bring players in.

"Whatever we do, we're not going to cope with Hull and Cardiff, but looking at the other teams, we don't have much to fear. We need to get our own house in order.

"Hull are where they are and I can't see many overtaking them. They play with one up front and have a desire, they don't give goals away and they have a good recipe for success."

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
