Cook’s interview on Quest is THE interview you were waiting for 23:41 - Sep 29 with 4860 viewshatch

Sorry if it’s been released elsewhere today. But he just answers short direct answers then calls the interviewer out for his line of questioning post Bolton. Awkward but terrific to watch on this occasion.

Ah, so that'll be the interviewer he was referring to having previously 'slaughtered' him.

I lost my dad last year too,. didn't resort to being that embarrassing when being asked some perfectly legitimate questions.

OK I've not been asked those sort of questions, but ffs have some humanity, guy was only doing his job.

Funny. Paul was only doing his job.
Time and place to go on the attack about Bolton not just after he lost his dad.


You talk about humanity, well there wasn't any from the journo

Please tell us about the time you lost a game by 5 and then were grilled by a professional journalist a week after your dad died.

Terrific interview. I don't blame PC at all. I get really pi55ed off at journalist who, instead of trying to report news, try to create it. We've seen the same with the fuel crisis, caused by journalists hyping up fuel shortages. In this instance, the journo was clearly trying to heap pressure on PC to get him sacked after the Bolton game, by referencing his results since taking over last season. Applause to PC for giving the interview, not getting carried away and making it clear in a polite way that the journo is a d1ckhead.

Journo in question meant to be a Town fan as well!

He sounded surprised he got the reaction he got...

I went to pieces when my Dad passed - I was out of action for at least 6 months - top respect to anyone who can keep going in those circumstances.

Has anyone ever looked at their own postings for last day or so? Oh my... so sorry.

So, everyone is in favour of Lambert banning Phil now then?

Or are there some double standards on display here?

I think everybody handles loss differently. There are no rights and wrongs. You have to just go with it and let time work it’s magic. When I lost my mum a few years ago, I was ok with it. I had so much to do sorting all the the horrible stuff out, keeping my dad going etc and was busy in work too. There wasn’t any pressure at all on me with the latter, but I found throwing myself into it helped me. By comparison, my sister’s response was totally different.

I think work is Cook’s way of dealing with it. As for the interview, he clearly doesn’t like doing them and it’s not his strength. I can understand why he was short with the interviewer. I’m never sure if interviews straight after a game are a good thing though.

You can make a case for Cook being a bit childish here, but he's got a right to be a bit hacked off with having to publicly defend his record after a handful of games into a season, not even accounting for the circumstances of the week leading up to Bolton.

The worst bit is the interviewer's baiting of Cook. "You seem a bit downbeat" - is just asking for an argument. He'll know he's downbeat and he'll know why.

Phil didn’t get banned for the questions he asked though.

It’s not really. It’s much the same thing, Manager doesn’t like a line of questioning and acts contrary to his job.
