Just so pleased the Evans era is over. I was amazed some didn't want the takeover to happen. Yes, it could be even worse, but I very much doubt it.

The club now at least has a chance.

Possibly. Doubt it though. Evans might be imcompetant but he's always seemed honest enough. Whatever the official story might be, I just do not believe the takeover wasn't mentioned or that Evans mislead him.

If we put the pieces together that we've been told it just doesn't seem to add up that Cook is unhappy.

I guess we'll find out tomorrow. Or at least get a much better idea.

If Cook is upset that the takeover has happened because he didn't know it was on the cards then he's been absurdly naive. Even if he himself wasn't all that clued in his representatives will have been all over it. I'd imagine this is all a fuss over nothing.

He won't do anyone any favours by admitting it if it has put his nose out of joint. So I'd be surprised if we hear anything particularly revealing.

I cant see him saying anything even if like you say he's unhappy.

Firstly, there's no decent jobs around at the moment and contrary to this belief that Cook turned down championship jobs, all we really know is he spoke with a couple- they could have decided against him.

There's no bigger League One job than us, and him leaving another job quickly might make his CV start to look like he avoids challenges.

this is the same Paul Cook that turned down 2/3 jobs previously as they didnt suit him?

There's personal pride, and his own beliefs that come into play, if he's not happy that the job is what he believes he was sold I'd have nothing but respect for him, if it is true, that he's offered to resign.

We want everyone on the same page going forwards, the club has muddled along disjointed for too long.

There is nothing to say that a CEO (whoever he may be) will be a bigger success here than Paul Cook could have been.

at 0900 I think it'll be confirmed as to if he will remain here, if he turns up all smiles and onboard then great, if not, then it would pain me to see him leave as the worse record of an Ipswich manager called Paul.

Milne was the same as Clegg and ONeil, Evans mouthpiece and nothing more!

McCarthy's offensive expletive ridden comments to a very soft press are also a disgrace to the club - he should be on a disrepute charge.
A very sad state of affairs.

PS - go and take a look at the Cardiff City forum! There are 10s of posters now, despite some of the brilliant results he has achieved, stating they’re getting outplayed by out of form teams, they’re bypassing the midfield, stubbornness on substitutions, lack of playing youth, total reliance on Keiffer Moore. Why the 2 year contract extension.

Dan - that’s not the point is it. We wouldn’t be where Cardiff are if we’d stuck with Mick, we’d have had a further disillusioned fan base and a team playing even more insular football. And he would have left anyway, with a team with still no midfield, right back, and playing less and less football.

Marcus fecked up his replacement and he stayed on too long!!

Read the comments. Remember the reality.

I do remember the reality, the reality of playing not very good football but being ultimately stable, on a shoestring budget.

Mick's time was over here for sure by the time he left, the relationship had soured beyond saving.

I then recall what happened afterwards.

As for more insular football... we've not had a shot on target in two games. I don't think it's actually possible to get more negative. At least we scored before.

But I'm glad you're still obsessed with him.
