|Coulson and One Other From Last Week's Team Set to Miss Out Against Owls|
No point in having best/strongest team if Cook can't get it to perform. I'm not convinced with him at moment esp as he persists in only one up front. Bonne needs a partner as hree behind do not link up.
If Bonne is off colour then who's going to score! Very few goals come from outside the penalty area so more bodies needed in the area.
|Burns: Supporters Need to Stick With Us|
Burns has been fantastic and deserves to be on the winning side. Just think that scoring two isn't enough to win!
For me Cook has failed. Last season he took over a team that were just outside the top 8 but he failed to take them any further. Fast forward to this season and not any better despite a stronger squad!! He needs to look in the mirror and work it out before the owners do!!
|Cook: Fans Have Been an Absolute Credit|
Yes we have but for how long!
For me it's Cook's formation of 4231 that is the root cause Our two holding mids get swamped by opposition mid and rarely win 50/50 balls and are too slow. Then there's the 3 attacking mids who are too far away from striker and do not track back. Take Chaplin in last game, i don't think he touched the ball which is a bit like Fraser when he last played.
We're therefore too narrow which is why Bolton etc had so much space out wide. So was it any wonder that the had easy time against our fullbacks.
I don't know why managers are so reluctant to use 442. So until Cook changes we're unlikely to get any better, even scoring two goals is no good if we let in more!!
|Cook: Blues Waiting to Resolve Celina Red Tape|
While Celina will ad to our attacking options, the real issue is our central midfield where both Harper and Evans have failed to control the play and have allowed the defence to be too exposed. Also I don't like Cook's formation as the 3 behind the sole striker seem to be in no mans land.
|Morsy and Armin Make Debuts as Cook Makes 10 Changes|
Don't understand what Cook is up to!
Thought he was picking strong line up but hasn't so what will he learn whatever the outcome!! He must know how badly we've done in cup comps so why not use match to develop squad.
|Dobra Makes Colchester Debut|
Hopefully he'll get more game time but he definitely needs to improve in last third and score more goals and assists. Maybe then he'll be back at PR.
|Walton: Two Great Seasons Under Cook at Wigan|
I don't know how on earth Cook thought that Hladky was good enough for L1.
He got rid of our best keeper to Peterborough so hope he's got this one right. It's such a key position and has already cost us 4 points!
|Town Complete Burgess Signing|
I'm not sure if he's left or right footed. We haven't had good balance in the defence for long time so hoping we have now!
|Cook: Disappointing, We'd Managed Their Threat|
Can't help thinking that we (or rather ME) missed a trick in failing to sign Warburton. It would have avoided all the pain of 3 Pauls
Still we are where we are so for Club's sake hope Cook is the right guy but not convinced.
|Burton Albion 2-1 Ipswich Town - Match Report|
I don't think Cook knows what he's doing. He has a system/style that he wants to play but I don't think the players fit in at all. Why is he so scared of playing 442! Piggot clearly needs to be spearheading the attack with a striker alongside not three so called attacking mids.
He changes with the subs at the end when its too late. He needs a strong assistant who will tell him as at the moment he looks like he's drowning and as has been pointed out has a worse record than Hurst who lets face it had a much worse squad to pick from.
Don't understand why we're so short of CBs!!
|Coulson at Town to Complete Loan Move|
I'm just wondering if he can play as CB. Not sure how tall he is but we've needed more lefties. I don't think Woolfy finds it easy but that doesn't explain his recent form.
Ndaba is leftie but can he step up?
