They should be thankful, for the sake of their reputations, that they didn't come here.

I know our squad are pathetic but still stand by fact they would have got more out of them than Cook.

Sorry.

I agree.

It’s not like the entire squad is useless, just need motivating and gaining some confidence.

Thought Cook may have helped with that.

If Evans didn't fancy the Cowleys that's all the evidence of their talent I need.

You still believe? That’s good to have faith, I’ve been here multiple times and it’s ended badly every time.

I see no reason that this appointment will be any different while the same challenges are present.

It's not a fact, that's not how facts work.

Fact is, we will never know.

They have a squad much much better... I would take any of Williams, Harness, Jacobs or Curtis over any of our “creative players”

If Cook cant motivate you what makes you think the cowleys would do better out of interest.

PC has done nothing but try and bring up their moral and mentalities despite their continued rubbish performances as players.

Cowleys have taken on a portsmouth squad who have finished in and around the playoffs for the past 2 and abit seasons. Havent had any issues with attacking. It just went stale under a manager who'd been there for a while.

Cook got the short straw in taking over town imo.

Yes I do, totally.

Our squad is the size and shape it is purely due to incompetence. Cook will not repeat that when he has the chance to do something about it this summer.

The 3 wins when it’s was blatantly obvious Gill was in charge, we seem to have gone backwards since then.

Only thing that’s change is who is in the dugout, yet we seem bereft of ideas since then.

'We' are not bereft of ideas.

The manager has his own way of doing things, that is what he has been employed for.

At the moment he is trying to work with someone else's players.

This is not his squad and won't be for a while yet.

Even in those those 3 games. The 'attacking' threat if the side wasnt improved. Set pieces saved us and our performance against Accrington for example was awful.

The only thing we saw different in the hull game was high pressure... but that literally lasted a half before the players were knackered.

One fair comment (in hindsight) is that Cook maybe shouldn’t have tried to apply his own preferred formation to our current crew......but I think he overestimated their ability to adapt and didn’t want to ‘waste’ the balance of the season playing in a way that wouldn’t endure.

At least he now knows who can be useful to him next season though.

Zero shots on target today, I would suggest that that is bereft of ideas.

What they've done is got Pompey back on track. They weren't in too bad a shape until that last run of games that Jackett had that led to him going. I don't think they've had to tweak as much there to get results as they would've had to have done had they come to Town.

Obviously we'll never know if they would've had the same impact at Town as they have at Pompey, as they'd have still been working with the same players that are without any kind of cutting edge.

Then you misunderstood the point.

But cook didnt come in and try to apply his own style. He tried to bring successful phases of attacking football into the formation the players had played all season.

We had played 4 2 3 1 all season. He came in an played 4 2 3 1.. the different was he was trying to get them to be confident and unafraid to pass the ball something Lambert sucked out of them.

It was still too much to ask though, wasn’t it.

I suspect many of them probably need a member of staff to tie their shoelaces for them.

Ok you and others want him out. Are after him. You and probably a few in the squad whose easy life is threatened. That’s fine it’s all about opinions, but just consider how many of our lot do you think would get into Portsmouth’s team? Or any team in the top half. One or two maybe? Three?

The only thing I’d question Cook about is why he put his successful reputation on the line with a club in this state.

Pompey are much stronger than we are.

They done us 3 times this year.

You cannot compare the two.
