    Well, very happy with that, slightly surprised as I wasn't sure our possession-based play would translate well when facing a superior XI, but after whipping in 5,452 corners, we finally put a cross on Cook's noggin and boy did he finish it well!

    We can say what we want about whether Cook should have started the season ahead of Oliver based on fitness, but the fact is Cook has just delivered a heavy blow to Oliver's chances of starting the next game - and fair play, too!

    3 goals in the past 120 minutes of football is belting.

    Delighted for Cook, and hope he continues scoring.

    At the back we were a little error prone, but I still think that's us bedding in. For sure the lad Crichlow is going to make mistakes, and he should have been sent off yesterday - but his passing game is clearly why he's been brought in, and this is SOOO MUCH better than playing Paudie O'Connor or Niall Canavan and expecting them to be ball playing centre backs simply because we want to play different way.

    This is what we were all so impressed with in the Summer; signing players with real purpose.

    We're going to conceded goals this season, but when we start to click, hopefully we'll be scoring them regularly too!

    Onwards and upwards, up the City!

    Sent off for what, being faster than the forward and blocking him from getting the ball?

    Not for mein a hundred years Jon . The ref was as close as he needed to be to see the same from memory.

    Any time you run across your man and take them out, it's a free kick - no question about being last man, obviously.

    Not sure what the commentators said about the incident as I was watching in a bar from Scarborough!

    From the replays I saw, he was nowhere near the ball, but I would be prepared to watch it again.

    What he did was really no different , but at pace, than a defender “ arsing” a foward off the ball to gain a dead ball. It’s worth a look ,, also telling that Hull didn’t surround the ref?

    Cook deserves all the plaudits for coming back fighting fit although you could ask why he wasn’t last season. Cook has the shirt now and I hope it drives Oliver on to get up to fitness he has proved in the last two years he can score goals at a level above so we have good competition

    I don't know, and unless he comes out and says Adams wanted him to put on some 'muscle mass' to compete physically, we'll probably never know.

    But I much prefer the leaner version.

    To be fair to Cook, he looked in pretty good shape at the start of last season too. He had a period of time out with his injury and quite possibly, may have been rushed back before he was fully fit again.

    It was never a foul let alone a sending of he took the ball

    To be fair to you @Kevin1954@Kevin1954 I can't even find the incident on the extended highlights, so I'm guessing it was a non-event.

    He didnt get the ball did he? Sort of slid and fell over and took their bald striker out. Another day he gets a card for that.

    Was that after Cook thought he was prime Messi trying to take everyone on and lost the ball?

    Pretty much so. An oft used phrase but quite apt “ a coming together “ is the best description Jon.

    One of those incidents kev that gets given either way depending who the bloody ref is. Personally I thought it was a smart bit of last ditch defending.

    Lee hendrie thought it was great defending and didn't think it was a foul. The commentator wasn't sure

    To be fair to Critch the TV assessment was he got away without any foul because his speed got him goalside, if he had come in side on it could have been a different outcome

    Was it right at the beginning of the second half?

    Because I'm not sure where the referee was actually positioned.

    Interesting that the consensus isn't the stone wall 'fair challenge' after all...
