    …and looking from a distance, its revealed more than if I had actually gone.

    Stats..

    Up until half time, Latics were 60-40 up on possession, although Reading had more attempts on goal, considerably more, but they’d been mostly blocked.

    As the second half wore on, the percentage gap narrowed continuously, as it seemed Reading came more and more into the game. Their goal attempts continued to rise also. Percentage of possession has swung to Reading now.

    It was no surprise when the equalizer flashed up on my phone. It was a big shock though when they almost immediateky scored again.

    Whats the issue? Fitness? Is that it? Are we not fit enough? Can we not last 90 mins?

    And theyve scored another whilst Ive typed this piece! Unbelievable.

    Close the door on the way out please, Cook. Theres a good lad.

    Well in control and then……….a double substitution!!! why??

    It must be a very good compensation clause in his contract.

    Over a million am afraid. Not helpful fans booing Naismith when he comes on at one up. Confidence looked shaky and so it proved. Must be horrible to be treated like that by your own supporters. Luton next week could be pivotal.

    Reading poor..Jacob’s get his usual start ..couldn’t put them to bed.Created little. Windass worked hard but thought ideal game to blood Geldhardt. Then on comes Naismith and league 1 edging nearer. Interesting to hear Big Roy,Super Stu’s and the remaining clappers analysis !!!!……..Look what happens when you don’t act on the obvious shocking portfolio of damning statistics!!!!…..and to cap it all he got another booking…………3 home defeats on the bounce……..but hey ….our home form will save us !!!……..Naismith on……usual results

    What a five minutes, why make subs so early, or even at all, just so frustrating. Got to go, Vat would you like a badge for not going?

    No. Just a managerial change.

    When we went a goal up, I thought “typical. But at least the kids and my dad will be happy”.

    Why oh why did he have to make ANY subs let alone take your best player off. Thought we looked comfortable up to that point and played some good stuff going forward. That game was lost due to poor substitutions, Cook cannot defend what he did. The only player that should have been subbed was Jacobs and that should have been done at half time or before.
    Time to go Cook I’m afraid, turning round to the crowd and clapping when Joffy spun and shot on 88 mins was a fekin joke. Too little too late yet again. Weekend spoilt again!

    That surely is his last glimmer of hope extinguished. I agree about his substitutions and why does Jacob’s still get on after his continual recent mediocre performances. Game after game his substitutions cost us points and if those bell ends upstairs don’t do the right thing and remove him then I really worry for the long term future of our club should we drop.

    Exactly what my dad said when they came in. Almost word for word.

    It HAS to happen now. No question. When their equalizer flashed up, I thought “ah well, its going to be a draw”. If only, eh? Substitutions have always been Cook’s achilles heel. Quite often they have been puzzling, at best.

    If I was Cook I would resign right about now. I really would.

    Was he being sarky when he turned and clapped the crowd? Putting Joffy on so late was pointless anyway. If I’d been young Joe, Id have been too busy ‘stretching’ near the corner flag and not heard him. Its almost as if bringing him on was a sarcastic dig at the fans.

    I shouted down to Cook and Richardson “we should be clapping that after 8 mins not 88” at which point they turned to the field shoulders dropped and heads hung.
    Get somebody in now who can weigh the squad up for 4-5 games before the window opens.

    Joffy’s nan had a go on one of the Facebook pages earlier. Saying he should be putting Joe on earlier, or starting him.

    Has to end this weekend, this crap.

    When the home fans start singing “you’re getting sacked in the morning” it’s gone beyond changing the recipe, it’s time for a new chef.

    Graeme Jones might be available on Monday ;)

    If the pay off is too much why not bring in an owd yed like Warnock and get him sit along side of cook, make sit down for 90 mins and concentrate on tactics. Booked again for arguing with 4th official, its got embarrassing now!
