The Tigers still sit second in the Championship behind Cardiff, but if Crystal Palace beat Brighton on Sunday, they will be back in the play-off places.

Bruce felt his side should have had at least a point and he had his head in his hands as Robbie Brady hit the inside of the post with a free-kick two minutes from time, with Jay Simpson's follow-up cleared off the line.

"We've done enough to win two matches, that's the biggest disappointment," the deflated Hull boss said.

"I couldn't fault the way we played or the way we've gone about it.

"To be fair to Forest, they've gone for it and played three up front, but the attempts we've had off the line and the post - it's just one of those horrible ones where the luck goes against you.

"Unfortunately it wasn't our day."

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!
