U23s Coach Dyer in Hospital For Tests

Let’s hope it’s all no biggie deal although the fact the club felt the need to issue a statement is worrying. All town fans are fingers crossed it all turns out well for Kieron.

Town to Ban Fan Indefinitely For Racist Slur

Cook: I Don't Have Yes-Men Around Me
at 14:29:07

Cook clearly doesn’t like being questioned at all. We as a club in this league are a Man City, Utd, Liverpool etc. When you are managing a big club with lots of financial backing that comes with pressure and expectation. It’s ok saying he doesn’t like managers judgement being questioned in the media, he needs to realise that’s what goes with the job. Also I’m sure he’s on a very nice salary and like it or not, the amount of media attention football gets is why wages for managers and players have been able to go up significantly. If he wants a job with no pressure he’s in the wrong profession.

Cook: I Don't Think Anybody Can Be Promoted in October

The teams near the bottom of the league are easier to beat otherwise they wouldn’t be at the bottom of the league and losing more often than those at the top.

Cook: Once the Sunshine Starts It Doesn’t Stop and We’ve Got to Make That Happen

He is just talking nonsense as usual. He’s also promised we’ll finish a lot higher. Maybe but he can’t promise that, no manager can, even good ones.

Who have we played in those 7 games? Our three league wins come from bottom half teams, in fact two of which are in the bottom 4. None of the others are top 6. If we get 11 points from the next 6 league games then you can talk about improvement. We’ve had such a kind fixture list. Only one of the Top 6 in the first 12 games and that was at home.

Blues1 if we’d not thrown away a two goal lead he wouldn’t be being questioned. You only have a point if he makes a substitution that works and he still got quizzed over why. Personally I think we’ve seen him out thought often enough this and last season for their to be questions about his tactical nouse. Did anyone question bringing Chaplin on when he scored the equaliser against Wednesday? You have to admit he’s just admitted his coaches are learning on the job. This means he’s deliberately brought in coaches who he couldn’t possibly know whether they can do a good job now or in the future. Reid is coming in because like the other three they’ve “been mates for years”.
If you are planning to bring in so many players then wouldn’t it have made sense to have coaches who can hit the ground running? Also whilst Reid has been working in and around football for the last 20 years it doesn’t mean his counsel will be correct. Reid is a relic of the old days in football, not just in terms of his approach but also from the jobs for the boys carousel.

Cook: From a Winning Position We Found a Way to Give It Up
at 10:24:59

Blues1 you have said people are manipulating stats to suit an argument. You then claim we need to ignore Cooks first 16 games in charge? You do understand the concept of irony? How many managers come into a club and say to their employers. “I’m going to do far worse with these players, than the man you thought wasn’t doing well enough with them”? Practically every manager comes into a club having to work with players that aren’t “his”. The only difference is most come into a club with the team struggling near the bottom, not play-off contenders, on a 5 game unbeaten run, with three wins on the bounce, that in over 18 months had never been out of the top half of the table and had mainly been top 2 or top 6. What stats would you like us to use to show cooks doing a great job?

Cambridge United 2-2 Ipswich Town - Match Report

Blues1 the bottom four vs top six is a skewed comparison. Bottom four bs top four would be a more fair way to assess our standing. In which case it’s 3 points off the bottom 4 and 11 points off the top 4. MK dons are about 4 points behind 5th place so it’s a deceiving table, or does this mean you think 6th is a good return on the player expenditure?

“Work harder in training” The number of times he said that after games the players must have been doing next to nothing before, either that or they are doing a 12 hour day by now.

HappyKitten… given they have just dug up the fossil Reid and appointed him at Cook’s request o doubt we’ll see the back of Cook anytime soon. The Season needs to be totally lost before there is any chance he’ll go. He won’t resign as in his mind he’s not to blame for anything. We’ve had such a relatively kind fixture list so far and are still struggling to be anything more than average or worse. I think he is the wrong man for the job but when they’ve backed every decision and continue to do so, senior management of the club won’t want to sack him any time soon.

Cook Confirms Reid Joining Coaching Team
at 17:31:49

Can’t any of you remember how horrified we all were when he was in the running for the Town job? He was seen as a relic in football terms more than a decade ago. He’s hardly going to be adding a progressive voice. His Sunderland side were attacking but very much welly welly. He’s about as sophisticated in football terms as a penny farthing in the Tour de France. Cook needs an experienced voice but one who’s not out of touch.

Reid Could Reprise Wigan Role at Town
at 13:00:57

This is so depressing. What we don’t want is someone who was openly seen as a dinosaur on here on the two occasions he was linked with the managers job. He is a relic of the “jobs for the boys” carousel. We need a good coach who is tactically and technically tuned in. Not someone who’s philosophy is very late 80’s. It’s on though, he’s a scouser and Cooks mate.

Cook: New Signing Yengi Has Really Good Qualities

Can anyone make any sense of this? He just talks B’llks. So is he saying he doesn’t like
Progression or he does? If you are an under 18 or under 23 player would you have a clue if he’s saying there won’t be much opportunity? I would assume everyone is working really hard. He comes across as saying he’s not going beyond the 28 first team players, yet he had non first team players on the bench. It’s like a load of words are in his head and he fires them out regardless of the question or if what it’s saying contradicts himself or makes any sense. 😳🤔

Cook: A Lot of Them Did Themselves the World of Good Tonight

Every club has to deal with injuries, suspensions and COVID. We have 28 first team players and he’s moaning because he can’t play ALL of them every week. Seriously, weak isn’t the word for this BS. At 2-0 give Barry a game, don’t leave it til it’s pointless him coming on. Kenlock btw who hasn’t played a competitive game all season lasted 90mins so that’s his game minutes argument put in context.
