|Cook: I Don't Think Anybody Can Be Promoted in October|
The definition of insanity is doing the same things over and over again, and expecting different results.
For some reason, he cannot change tactics, adapt the game or deploy subs to slightly relieve pressure and that is what concerns me the most. Sometimes, he needs to adapt to take three points when we are under pressure is much better than trudging off the field to a late equaliser.
The season, starts over the next month. I did say that i would give him 10 games but there has been improvement, so let's see where we are after having played Portsmouth, Sunderland and Wycombe.
Still don't like the man, but it is too early to get rid.
And lastly, I have to agree with some comments about Fraser. A little bit slow for my liking and slows things down. Let's have a change for tomorrow and see what we are like without him.
|Reid Could Reprise Wigan Role at Town|
PC needs all the help he can get and bounce his ideas off, so why not. Reid does have experience so crack on and lets get back to back league wins. That would be a start.
|Cook on Calls For Him to Bring in Assistant|
Not one word he has spoken inspires me with confidence. We can all see the problem except him. Does he watch the match over to see where He could have changed things earlier or adapted the formation.
He seems too proud to accept that he is at fault. He is now blaming players errors (although he categorically stated that he would not blame players a week or so ago).
Four more games. For his sake, i hope the rot stops this weekend. Draw or lose and unfortunately, i think he will be replaced. We all know that the management make signings quickly .
|Ipswich Town 2-5 Bolton Wanderers - Match Report|
Blues1 - i kind of agree that it is too early to sack him bit we have to look at the big problems.
No number 2 - why??. He desperately needs one
No defensive coach - definitely need one now.
No plan b - his formation, tactics and subs are not working.
He needs help and this has to be the best signing of the summer or he will be gone.
As for not counting last seasons results, lambert could have used the same excuse with what he inherited. He didn't. He manned up and took the losses on the chin. And that his part of the reason his record was bad. Plus he was stubbon like this incumbnent.
Ps - not sticking up for lambert . The only good thing was reconnecting the fan with the club after MM. And those early season good starts. Twtd - lol.
|EFL Confirm Town Squad List|
If i was kenlock, i would make town pay up the whole contract in full or just sit and wait. No team showed any interest on the wages he is on, so he has to sit tight until january. Why move for half the wage - you only get one career, so take the wage and bank it.
|New Wycombe Date Set|
Will be interesting to see who is on the bench at the weekend. Jackson or Mr Golf, or neither.
|Butcher Named Lowestoft President|
Eddie1985 - spot on. The one thing the new owners have got completely wrong. They thought it was better to have the face on a mural, rather than the legend himself. Our loss, is Lowestofts gain.
|Town Confirm Celina Loan Signing|
Another good signing, but as he has not trained yet, we will not be seeing him anytime soon.
I do hope a medical has been carried out as pericarditis is not something you bounce back immediately - talking fitness and lung capacity.
Really need the central midfielder and ship the likes of jackson, kenlock and norwood out.
|Town Close in On Celina Loan Signing|
Not for me thanks.
Anyone who has had covid or pericarditis will know that it takes weeks/months to recover. He has had no pre-season and has not trained at all.
He would have been good at this level pre pericarditis and covid but fear it is just a waste of money for this season.
Suggest those that don't know what pericarditis is look it up. I know three people hospitalised all in last four months with it following covid or jab.
|Town Linked With Late Morsy Dash|
Blues1 - the reason Cook his being criticised for buying ex-players is that we were supposed to be using scientific data for our recruitment (announced 1.4.21 i believe).
Now after the first 5 games, it is clear that we are not the fittest team in the league as was Cook's intention as we seem to be hitting a wall after 65-70 minutes.
I have no problem with the players recruited. Most seem ok and a couple are struggling which is about right for any level of recruitment. What i am concerned about is a complete lack of a plan B, no assistant manager and the level of experience the other coaches have.
I said he would have 10 games so this is a half time report. Lets hope for some luck, a decent ref and some consistency throughout 90 minutes.
|Cook: I'm Sure at the Minute I've Not Got Fans' Trust|
Have to admit i don't like Paul Cook.
I do like the squad and players he has assembled and on paper they are better than what we had by some way, so he has my trust for another half a dozen games in which i time i expect to see the improvements he talks about. If he does all that then i guess i will have to learn to like him.
Just need to be patient.
2-1 to us tomorrow.
|Dobra Set For Loan|
Any chance we can get Mr Cook an assistant manager. He clearly needs help and someone to bounce ideas like this off.
And god forbid we sack him without an assistant manager. Who would take tempirary charge - the wigan kitman??.
|Town Complete Carroll Signing|
Blueboy - agree with pretty much all you say. Just would like to know what you mean by miracles. I certainly expected us to beat Morecambe and Cheltenham. A win against those two should not be a miracle!!. I know we will struggle between games 6 and 10.
Signings are good. Tempo has been good. The bits around the stadium and intent to repair is good.
Downside - kitman as a coach is strange. Ticket office and shirt sales communication is a massive let down. Waiting for 3 shirts all in stock at warehouse for over a month and not one email.
Everything will improve so keep the faith and looking forward to review after game 10
