I am keen to back Cook, and I like much of what he says - tonight's child-like.. 21:08 - Apr 20 with 5385 viewsunstableblue

... antics on the side lines are completely UNACCEPTABLE.

From the ignoring Town players walking just next to him at full time, and graphically praising Northampton players, to covering his eyes and shaking his head on an early Wolfenden mistake, to turning away and gesticulating wildly on a KVY error, etc etc.

Add this to continuous criticism in the media of the players quality!

Berating people who work for you is a motivation technique you use sparingly, its proven not to work. Humiliating them when they are on a VERY VERY low ebb of confidence is disastrous.

Plus we did not have a system to tackle their banks of players. That's the managers job.

If he really was the new owners choice as well he is safe, but it was an evans appointment only then he may well have problems.

Anything to do with evans has always been a disaster

Just be interested in what your reaction would be if you’ve just given a rousing ‘Escape to Victory’esq’ team talk and within 20 seconds of the restart, your centre back kicks the ball off the pitch under no pressure??

I’m guessing you were in front of your lap top clapping saying unlucky ..... give me strength

Even if as a manager you're only keeping... on 21:17 - Apr 20 with 3424 viewsunstableblue

Downes, Dobra, Wolf, Dozzell and some other in contract players....

To create the poisonous atmosphere with that group that will fester through the summer, and to not try and nurse what is a weak team to at least finish the season well.

It just seems ill judged.

Yes the team is sh!t, yes it has a disease of underperformance and insular play embedded under EVERY marcus manager

I want Cook to stay and succeed.... his persona and attitude seems off the mark currently

a good manager can get the best out of the sum of its parts... and this team are better than who we are playing against

The only thing in your post that makes any sense is that the continued criticism of the players has clearly had the opposite effect to what he wanted.

All the players on the pitch tonight are capable of a good game, and have some quality, I completely agree that they massively failed over the last few seasons,and the majority need to be moved on.... but surely the mistakes you are referring to are as a result of pressure and a complete lack of confidence??

And perhaps a lack of clarity on system? why not Hawkins instead of jackson in a 4-2-3-1? why not Dobra over Bennets?

Is this lack of confidence and WOEFUL player form not in part instilled by the manager's attitude, surely it is? as you rightly state the players are failing at the basics, but its fine margins, and the atmosphere is not right.

And its not just the young players, chambo was making woeful errors against AFC frickin Wimbledon

Oh ffs get off your high horse. These players are a bunch of wasters for the most part and being called out in the press is entirely warranted. If they can't take it then get out.

Yes I completely get that...

Some of tonight was just basic basic technique

And that is down to the players and they have to be able to handle the pressure, they have to deliver. Yes it is mainly THEIR responsibility - but the system they are playing in, the instruciton they have AND the MOTIVATION they feel is critical

SO people are missing my point, does the manager visibly berating them,
digging them out from the side of the pitch, ignoring at full time week in week out HELP them perform.
NO!!!

Well you're sort of proving my point!

Yes I would definitely tell them off for behaving badly, immediately. Then I'd encourage and reward better behaviour. But critically i'd trying and talk them about why their a naughtiness was sh!t.

It is absolutely 100% proven that shouting at kids continually, being over emotive with them, not communicating them effectively is b@llox and ineffective.

Has Cook's throw them completely under the bus worked in the games he's been in charge??

Good to call out Dozzell and Edwards

Now get your hands round the players, get some belief into the team, give a system that works - AND GET A FECKIN WIN AND SOME GOALS

Not being able to complete a 10 yard pass has nothing to do with pressure!

Pressure is not being able to provide food for your family. These last 5 games are a free hit and we’ve bottled it already. Stop saying pressure...... please

The players need to earn our respect first before daring to take the high ground on a successful manager.

Fair enough I do get where you are coming from. However these players were mollycoddled for far too long and they deserve everything they are getting from Cook at the minute. None of them have shown up for him and have shown they really don't care.

However the best thing Cook can do now is not pick any of them. Just play the U23s and give them experience

Exactly Joe.

Clearly Cook will have come in and seen he has an underperforming team, that was miles off what he wants. But he had a short window to try and get something from it, AND as you state to develop a relationship with players who are staying and to get them embedded into your style.

But if you're a player like Wolfenden or Downes you are going to look at those sideline antics and just think - WTF?

Now a big question is why is Downes performing so poorly of late? is he injured? or is he just not bought into the coaching? because surely we can't bring in 11 players, and Downes is a player to build a team from.

To finish thought Joe - Cook's presser tonight showed some class, and was the right antidote, and the players will note that. And I bet you Cook is feeling he has overdone it recently.

But feck me, this is a new low, when I thought we couldn't get any lower. Cook needs to get his arms round the players and squeeze some wins before the end of the season. End of season woes often carry over the summer.

If any of these players are still here and are going to lose respect for Cook, who hasn't named a single individual in public, after this run of absolutely shameful performances then we can pay their contracts up now.
