Cookie must be licking his lips! 11:41 - Apr 8 with 2043 viewsRyorry

Managers' dream isn't it? Opportunity to turn round slowly sinking tanker of a club wedged in L1, sell all the poor quality cargo weighing it down, & then have the freedom to assemble all the parts you need to build your own model side to travel up the leagues.

No doubt Newcy could advise on the best galley layout for testing of tactical recipes ;)

Seriously though, huge opportunity for PC to make a big name for himself, rising from lower leagues in the same way as George Burley and Bobby Robson.

I remember Fulham as a 4th division team! Didn't they go all the way down the leagues and all the way up them again in not that huge amount of time? Certainly not a huge amount by today's standards anyway?


They did - think they nearly folded in the 1980s, but had a 1990s revival under Al Fayed.

Yep, 4th tier to Prem, in 1997-2001. Wiki has been a boon this morning!

Keane must have been licking his lips too. And Jewell, and Hurst.
And the cynic in me states that if we get to the Championship there is a good chance Cook will be relived of his duties.
I dunno. The more I think about this takeover the more despondent I get.


Disappointed in you. You're desperate to think of this negatively. Nothing to suggest he would be sacked, that is complete nonsense.

I'd have thought that the element of "newness", if nothing else, would spark cynics into at least some degreee of pleasant anticipation - football is (or should be) centred around excitement, & lord knows we've had precious little of that in the last 13 years.

I know I know. Just got bad vibes about all this, man.

I have it in commission, to comfort the feeble-minded, and to support the weak. You must needs go along with us; we will wait for you, we will lend you our help, we will deny ourselves of some things, both opinionated and practical, for your sake; we will not enter into doubtful disputations before you, we will be made all things to you, rather than you shall be left behind

Roy Keane had a similar opportunity when he came in and immediately tore the team up, leading to further demise.

The ultimate example, of course was Alf Ramsey. Division 3 (South) to champions of England.

Cook has a far greater pedigree as a manager than Roy Keane.

Blue.. you cant compare the two in any way.

Cook has experience of guiding teams up from league 2 and 1 and knows how to do it on a budget.
