Can you blame Cook 18:02 - Aug 21 with 542 viewsBlueNomad

for many of the dropped points? Appalling errors, silly mistakes, missed penalty and missed sitter. Not defending him but nothing he could do about any of those things.

I held him account for tues 2nd half decisions, but he was fine today.

I feel sorry for him, should only be judged on this season alone, but it wont happen

Never be afraid to share your thoughts.

He dismantled a successful defence and replaced it with one that lets in twice as many goals. Nobody forced him to bin the player of the season, even if one accepts that it was time for the captain to move on. Terribly unimpressed with what he has done to our defence so far.

Judging him on the basis of this season is fine, he has if anything so far made us even worse than last season. Or the season before. Or the one before that.

However, the most dangerous leftists of all may be certain oversocia- lized types who avoid irritating displays of aggressiveness and refrain from advertising their leftism, but work quietly and unobtrusively to promote collectivist values, “enligh- tened” psychological techniques for socializing children, dependence of the individual on the system, and so forth.

To be fair Wilson only played in 17 games last season; hardly reliable in terms of fitness. Our defence was more Jekyll and Hyde as well; yes, we kept quite a few clean sheets but when we did concede we really went to town - four at Doncaster, three to Hull, three at home to Swindon, three at Gillingham, Wimbledon, Northampton...

Poll: Before 20/21 even ends... where will Town finish in 21/22?

It's not quite as simple as that

We didn't concede many goals last year because we were based on a slow tempo possession game with the the full backs pretty much staying at home. We didn't get caught out of position much and if we did we had cover.

Last seasons defenders would struggle playing Cooks preferred style of play

Yes.

He was not accountable for last season’s shambles in my view, but he is for this. 100%. Its his team. If people are making mistakes, they’re his players. He signed them. If he didn’t, he should say. If they are not fit enough, it’s his people are doing the training so it’s still down to him.

No excuses now. 2 paltry points and lucky to have those. He needs to deliver or head for the door. Pressure? You bet, it goes with the job, just as it does in many other walks of life.

Sadly, the buck stops with the manager. That’s football. Not calling for his head though - but he needs a win.
