Ninety tense minutes and we did it! Won our first premier league match. I’m happy to say that one match in and we’ve equalled Derby’s winning tally from last season. Thanks to a Geovanni wonder goal. The first twenty minutes where tough on us but we soon adjusted to the premier pace and didn’t look out matched for too long. Fantastic when you consider that we’ve spent less than a quarter of the money Fulham have pre season.
Phil Browns master stroke was his choice of second half substitutions. Folan and Fagan came on at 70 and 74 minutes respectively. When most around me where calling for Windass instead of Fagan the decision seemed bizarre. This doubt washed away after 81 minutes when Fagan linked up with Folan, scoring our second goal that would turn out to be the winner.
2-1, a fantastic result by anyone’s standards and the pundits predicted doom and gloom for Hull this season is yet to rear its ugly head. A tougher match next week, we face a legitimate top half of the table team in Blackburn. If this week’s performance is anything to go by, we should be okay.
