    Expections

    1. Chris Hughton
    2. David Moyes

    Reality

    1. Neil Warnock for 6 Months
    2. Owen Coyle

    I suspect the Royle’s are realists which is why Paul Cook still has his Job.

    You laugh but he is a better alternative to what we have and his football was better than the shite we play now.

    I seem to recall it was roughly a 50/50 split and the start of light and dark sides.

    Ok then….the guy half of us wanted sacked.

    It’s still the same point, people didn’t like Martinez and said he was clueless, wasted transfer money, said the same things in defeat and was out of his depth in the same way they now say them about Cook, and yet they want Martinez back.

    I thought Warnock was a bit ambitious, but is this the same Martinez that is manager of the No 1 ranked country in world football?

    Give your heads a wobble gents!

    In all serious now, if any of you are even remotely suggesting that we should keep Cook, then oh my god, its you who needs to give your head a massive wobble.

    Deary me. Is that what its come to? Accepting shite because the alternatives arent brilliant?

    No wonder it was Wiganers who broke that strike and returned to Work, ‘eating humble pie’. Talk about going along with it all. Rubbish.

    If this is what our club has become, accepting Cook and burying your heads in the sand, then I want no part of it.

    For me personally it isn’t about accepting Cook (as much as I like him as a person) but accepting realistically who we are as a club and that to get to the next step will take time. Financial Fair Play won’t allow us to throw money around like we did in the Whelan days and to be honest, we don’t actually have that much in the grand scheme of things anymore unless the owners want to spend their own money. Again, possibly another reason why we are being taken off of the stock exchange but I wouldn’t bet on it.

    The talk of us spending £10m and being no better is an example of where we are. £10m these days at this level is nothing. Clubs are spending that on one player, we had that as our whole budget. Not to mention we couldn’t afford to keep Powell and haven’t been able to replace him, whilst Reece James was a phenomenon who again we haven’t gotten remotely close to replacing and probably never ever will. The improvements to our academy are a clear indication that the owners are looking at the long term future of the club and perhaps are even prepared to take a step back to then take two or three forwards. Who knows?

    We all want to do better, to win away from home, to be comfortable at this level and I hoped we would make a better fight of things this year and we still might yet do but sacking Cook is no guarantee we will survive and comes with a financial risk just as much as keeping hold of Cook does. We need to make sure we have the right man before we do anything in my opinion otherwise it could set us back even further ala Malky Mackay and Warren Joyce and we can no longer afford to take that risk.
