He’s still in the running if dc decides to trust Alonso then we will appoint cook. If not then he will go with Amadeu and that could be anyone. But alonso has spoken with cook and put his name forward to dc.


I’m personally not that fussed about Cook but I’d fetch him to Hillsborough myself if it meant Amadeu’s reported choice of Coleman didn’t get the job.

I'd never criticize anyone who claims to be ITK, lest people are discouraged from posting what they have discovered.

 

They can be absolutely right about a prospective manager at the time of posting, then everything collapses after a conversation with Channers and his advisors.

 

In the frame one moment, out of it the next.

 

And let's face it, we can't rely on our local journalists for info.

 

Dismal Dom Howson is even asking people to contact him if they've got a story.

I think it’s pretty obvious Cook is wanting to come to us but it depends how long we leave it. If he turned down Cardiff you like to think we may still have a chance? 
 

With it coming to the business end of the season now and many clubs will be sacking managers there is only so long he can wait. He’s never going to turn down a 2-3 year deal to manage elsewhere.

Only thing going against Cook is he went public stating the manager must be allowed to manage. May not sit well with DC.

 

True.

 

Mind you, I bet it's not the first time a prospective manager has told him that, and it won't be the last.

On contrary don't think he named chansiri specifically for a start and think DC may appreciate him being honest and straight forward with him compared to pulis' who (if you believe DC) was not exactly straight up with him from the start.

Cook is being too nice about us in his media appearances not to be still after the job.  

Also he was on a Wigan podcast last week and was saying how good a player windass is and how he's got premier League quality, sounds like repairing relationship that may soon be reunited

Only fact he got an interview and linked in any capacity and offered/considered job. When no one else even mentioned him? got told on 6th Jan. local journos picked up on 15th. I really dont give a shhyyte what you think tbh.

 

Well that's not true as this article from the 11th includes Ivic as a candidate and suggests he was referenced prior to this.

Don’t think you have to be Colombo to connect the dots in the timing of his statement. DC will know how long after their chat (or advisor chat) it took to be released.

Fair enough. DC will still probably avoid him because of this.

My own personal feeling is that he will avoid a British manager because they already have relationships with the UK press and journalists. Employing a foreign coach or manager mitigates this.

Can see your point but mate who listened live to that show seemed to think he was more positive re swfc than the context of the comments were taken post show.

Think given number of games coming up Thompson will have it to lose this week

Cook isn't just talking himself out of the job here with his recent comments about not being able to manage, he's talking himself out of a job anywhere in one of the bigger championship clubs. he's never going to have full control at a decent sized club, it doesn't work like that anymore.

 

He might get lucky and get another team like Wigan or one of the smaller promoted teams like Wycombe but he's desperate to come here as we're the biggest club he'll ever have the opportunity to manager but he doesn't want to play the game, he wants it on his terms and he's just not a big enough name to demand that

Appointed next week. Been told. Usually pretty reliable with info my source. 

Have you gone back to your source mate, any update? Do you think he was offered it and has turned it down over the weekend?
