    Everything hinges on the appeal outcome. How much Robinson can go for £1.5 million or £6 million+, £4 million from the EFL, what you have to also weigh into it all,

    When will crowds be allowed back in ?. That’s a big part of our income plus Championship football pulls in a far bigger away following.

    The administrators have turned down his resignation, seems like Cook has resigned so Bristol City don’t have to pay compensation to Latics (in the region of a £1m)

    No well wishing from me for that bastard, he couldn’t give shit for Wigan Athletic!

    Fuck the EFL

    I think your reading it all wrong m8. Paul Cook has a contract, he is contracted to the club. In the eyes of the Administrators he is an asset.
    Cook cannot up sticks and walk away that’s unless the Admin give him the green light and the contract is terminated.
    If he does resign he cannot take up another managerial position for a certain length of time, I have 6 months in my head someone might correct me on that.
    If a club want to make Paul Cook their new manager within this period of time they will have to pay Latics either compensation or the remaining wages of his contract.
    Now Cook is either been a nob
    Or
    He is actually resigning to force poachers to pay Latics compensation therefore in a round about kind of way he’s trying to help the club.
    He’s going for sure so let’s hope it’s of a benefit to the club so we don’t have to sell more kids right now

    If he has had an interview at Bristol City they must of had permission to speak to him so there must of been some sort of agreement with Cook.

    True but it doesn’t mean he’s for free. Administrators think of one thing only

    Money, period

    Yes he has a contract, but the moment they stopped paying him his full wages, the club would be in breach.

    This doesn’t necessarily mean he can just walk away, but it hugely weakens the club’s case if they sue, maybe to the point where it’s not worth even pursuing.

    I can tell you this from experience with Administrators, while they are in charge if anything is remotely worth anything from a tin of paint to a light bulb they will not let it go for free.
    This assumption that Cook no wages, breach of contract etc is guess work. That my friend about not been paid is bollocks. He has been paid just not in full. Until he has recieved no wages for a set period of time and no chance of that happening and the company is dissolved he remains contracted.
    So on that,
    If Administrators have said you can go for nout lol there will be no compensation to be paid. The admins job is to get blood from a stone not be kind and thoughtful far fcukin from it.

    If they say no you can’t go right now were in the mist of a takeover and he leaves then compensation will be laid by his new employer. Thats unless Cook takes time out for the foreseeable future then nothing can be done.

    If Admin have said yes then it’s his wages which are apparently huge or something is in the pipeline with new owners

    Like I said, admin ate heartless its zeros and ones

    If he hasn’t been paid in full, they’re in breach. It doesn’t necessarily mean he can walk away, but it certainly weakens the administrator’s hands – his contract will contain language that says something like “for the agreed consideration of X per week, you will be employed. As part of that employment, if you decide to leave then the following conditions apply”. The moment they don’t fully pay him X, they’re in breach as that’s not the amount agreed.

    No doubt you could try and argue severability or that the amount he has been paid now is enough to enforce the restrictive covenant, but that’s where m’learned friends come in and it stops being a case of free money for the administrators and starts being a gamble.

    So on your premise every player could also just walk away as they are in the same situation as Cook. The PFA paid the wages at Bolton and Macc didn’t they? No players or managers walked away for nothing. For a man who alluded to being a socialist I’m surprised at Cook for walking away at this time but guess his stock is high. Seems to me that football is sleepwalking into armageddon . Clubs potentially have zero income this side of Xmas apart from TV money and its currently unclear how the hell crowds will return? I can’t see as a business model how any club outside the Premier league is sustainable.

    The only reason he wasn’t paid in full was because they agreed to defer wages.
