Difficult to predict this one. Heart says 10-0 Wolves; head says 8-0 Wolves.
Early in the season and Wolves struggling to get going in every game, Hull will attack fast and furious to get a head-start goal or two. And they probably will. But Hull also not firing on all cylinders.

Gate 23,212.

Starting line up:
Ikeme
-----
Iorfa
Ebanks-Landell
Stearman
Golbourne
----
van la Parra
Coady
McDonald
Edwards
----
Afobe
-----
Dicko

Subs:
Martinez
Hause
Henry
Le Fondre (replace Afobe after 67')
Ojo (replace Edwards after 73')
Price
Rowe (replace Golbourne after 88')

I agree with everything you say, except I think Rowe will replace Golbourne in the 86th minute, opposed to the 88th.

This is how schisms start. Remember the Reformation? Yeh? Well that was started by a difference over whether a priest came on at the 88th or 86th minute. Heretics like you should be burned at the stake! And with all your 86th-ist books and documents. And stuff. ffs

Hull have such a disgusting kit, orange and black? what is that about? It's inferior to old gold and black in every way, do they even have a football museum as part of their ground? Tigers are also endangered, and I also once fitted the sound system in a shop in Hull, that was very similar to Go Outdoors, but wasn't actually one of there branches but an independent rip off version, they used low quality speakers.

However the flip side of that all that confidence is I once had an old football manager career on CM 00/01 where my mate was Hull and I Scunthrope and he pipped me to the Div 2 and Div1 titles, so I am naturally wary about that crossing over into life, 15 years later and in relation to different teams.

Basically the same team as last week except Ikeme has been dropped for on loan Arsenal 'keeper Emi Martinez. Fairly happy with that, and for KJ's decision to actually drop Ikeme.

Sounds like a right clanger that, listening on the radio though and it sounds deservered to be level at least. Akpom sounding dangerous though.

Regulation catch with no-one challenging for the ball. Awful.

Really rate McGregor but I have a feeling he cocked up something like that last season or the year before.

Really enjoyed this, both sides with good ability in the final third and both seem intent on chasing a winner.

Hull looking the far more likely with Martinez keeping Wolves in it on several occasions but Wolves also look dangerous on the counter.

Good spectacle tbf.

Good game. Fair result too in the end I think. Hull finished strongly but Wolves should have had a couple before McGregor's error. Both should be up there.

Sounds like we missed the better of the chances bar Akpom hitting the post. Kilbane seemed to indicate we were the better team on tut radio anyway.

You have Martinez to thank for keeping 2 or 3 great shots out in the last 25.

How did he look? I like Ikeme but he clearly isn't fit to me, and whilst I like how physical a presence he can be in the box I am always wondered if he is athletic enough to be a top championship keeper.

Killed my sky sports sub and am tempted not to get it back hence why I was ears only.

A draw is probably a fair result in the end. I thought we had enough chances in the first half to finish the game early on, but the penalty was a bit of a sucker punch and was against the run of play.

The 2nd half we started strong but after the goal faded off. Hull came close to winning with and I think by the end both teams were happy to play for the draw

Still makes me laugh, out of the 3 league goals we've scored so far, 1 was a Maradona esc handball vs Blackburn, and another was a shoddy attempt of catching a ball and Henry knocking it into an empty net from a yard out. Think it's fair for all the chances we've had, we've also rode our luck a little.

All in all happy with the display, and the attacking play was impressive. Only thing that irritated me was bringing Adam Le Fondre on in the 90th minute, seemed so pointless. Hope KJ starts him vs QPR on Wednesday.

Weird as I was worried about our defence but pleased with our forwards at start of the year, the 2 goals we have conceded have been a massive deflection and pen.
