He's ripped the guts out of this club and this is what we're left with... 00:23 - Sep 15 with 1475 viewsLowie

The coaching set up is utterly shambolic. If he was any cop, he'd have got a tune out of our squad last year, instead he threw them under the bus.

Cook is totally over rated. Lambert, Hurst, Jewell and Keane all had proven track records of success. However, we have to judge managers on what they do HERE. We have given too many managers far too much time in the past, to the serious detriment of the club.

This isn't working. He is our least successful manager ever, the win rate is worse than dire. ITFC are languishing at our lowest position in the football league for goodness knows how long, certainly since the 50s. There are clearly somethings that have gone hugely wrong behind the scenes and we need to end this now.

We need a manager that can COACH the players, improve them, develop them, etc. I see none of that.

You're gonna look a little silly if Cook turns it around.

There’s nothing wrong with being worried/passionate about what’s going on at the club you support.

I want him to turn this around, but I just can’t see it happening. Different players, same words spoken (soft touch, didn’t create enough)

Cook has a proven track record of success, arguably more so at the level we are at than the others you mention. You must be right though, something behind the scenes has gone catastrophically wrong.

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

I’m sure the OP, like many others want to look silly if he turns it around.

One thing being worried, we're all worried, another thing making bold unfounded statements like the op.

Cook History:

Southport - Sacked (6 months)

Sligo - Qualified for Uefa cup, lost in final of FAI cup, won FAI cup 2nd season, won FAI cup again season after. (5 years)

Accrington - Guided them to 14th in League 2 after taking over in February before leaving for Chesterfield in October (8 months)

Chesterfield - Missed out on play offs by 2 points first season. Won League 2 second season. Lost in League 1 play off final 3rd season. (3 years)

Portsmouth - Won League 2 title (2 years)

Wigan - Won League 1 title and would have comfortably stayed up in the champ if not for points deduction.

When given time, its clear he has success everywhere he goes. Unfortunately for him he may not have enough time to turn this round.

We must give him time. He has a track record of success and we were in dire straights long before his arrival. The squad got the past three years did nothing for us. They had to go. He must have time to put a completely new team together. 6 league games!!!

Was he "given time" in those posts or did he earn it?
