Cooke signed for city from South Korean side Buscan Icons to partner Dean Windass up front. Prior to going to Korea, Cooke had successful spells playing for both Burnley and Stoke City
. One stand out moment for Andy Cooke last season was when he scored against local rivals Huddersfield Town in front of the Kop at Valley Parade after some fantastic work by Marc Bridge-Wilkinson. Many people felt that Cooke was too much like Dean Windass to hold a place down in the team but showed he has the ability to link well with Deano and several other members of the attacking line-up.

Next season, alongside Deano and Cadamarteri, Cooke should have a huge impact, hopefully weighing in with 10-15 goals to aid our promotion season. I compare Cooke’s situation to Mark Hughes at Man Utd in the 90s when he was doing all the hard work and Cantona was getting all the credit. Out of Deanos 28 goals last season 15 of them came when he played alongside Cooke, showing that Andy provides other players with more space. Andrew Cooke is my player to watch for the 2005/2006 season.
