What like relying on advisers/consultants to the most important role at the football club rather than a CEO who works for and for the club only? 
 

Doesn’t sound like there’s anything  wrong with that to me. Certainly won’t be a conflict of interests which makes the decision progress take longer than it should.

Problem with advisers is - do they have the clubs best interests at heart? Or do they put forward candidates who they have ties too? 
 

Why a CEO or DOF football is needed. Until it happens and a proper football structure is put in place, we will go from manager to manager with different ideas, philosophies and the club will continue to struggle.

Or they know they're going to get a pay day from.

A cynic might think that DC is holding back on appointing a manager until the transfer window closes. Especially after Pullis told him what was required and then sacked 2days later.

This is my thinking.

agree with that. We are desperate for players yet with no manager that isn’t so easy. Absolute shambles of a club.

If Chansiri doesn’t allow a new manager to get some signings in we will deserve everything we get. We are a joke upfront, have been all season.

Not sure why the delay, if DC wanted Cook would be in by now.

Might as well just give it to Thompson, no signings so does not really matter

 


Do the advisers want Cook?

Cook reportedly wants the job. I don't see any other rumoured candidate more suitable for the job. Considering the clubs he's worked at, his nous for unearthing lower league bargains and getting the most out of a difficult hand, Cook would be a sensible appointment. Especially if by how it appears, that finances are tightly constrained and we have to rely on youth and loanees.

 

Therein lies the issue, Chansiri's rarely done anything sensible during his entire reign and fears that he'll go leftfield and appoint someone like Coleman or some journeyman, could recklessly happen.

Having read most posts,

it seems the majority don't want Cook.

Honestly don’t understand the fascination, it’s bonkers. A good lower league record at a few clubs and it’s like the second coming of Klopp.

 

Look, I get in our predicament he may not be a bad choice. He has vast experience managing poor players and teams and doing well with them, so will probably be able to rally this lot up. 
 

I’d still prefer a manager whose managed at a higher level and is tactically stronger with better contacts 

 

That’s just personal preference

Possibly not. Maybe more ££££ in it for advisors bringing in a foreign manager?

But more importantly......

 

HE IS POSITIVE

HE IS LIVELY

HE PREFERS ATTACKING FOOTBALL

HE HAS A SENSE OF HUMOUR

HE WILL BE A BREATH OF FRESH AIR

 

So, just like Ollie but with a lesser CV.

Sounds good to me.... 

Would sound even better if we ca get the sound man to change / hide his squeeky scouse accent in interviews and conferences lol

I could get behind the contacts point if it were not for the fact that cook had gotten hold of some really good loans at Wigan.

 

The "tactically stronger" argument is a disrespectful comment, no reason why managers who have worked their way up through the Leagues successfully cannot be very strong tactically.

 

In fact you could argue when you are managing a club like wigan competing at a lever where your resources are less than your competitors then you need to be tactically better than your peers to complete/survive. 

 

I don't bey for a minute that a manager like Scott Parker is a tactical genius but he got Fulham promotion by having a much better squad with more resources than other teams.

 

What wilder achieved at the blades getting them up and staying up was every bit as impressive tactically and coaching wise than the "tactical god" that bielsa is made out to be at Leeds and wilder like cook worked his was up having sucess at Every level and knew league inside and out.

Anyone who has managed at a higher level, isn’t necessarily tactically stronger, than someone from the lower leagues. They’re just working with better players and spending more money. Aiden O’Brien couldn’t get more out of the donkeys on Filey beach than the old lass who owns them. Get someone in who knows how to polish turds
