Agree with that one.
May as well brace ourselves for what's left of this season, so who if any one is kept on for best season, if they want to stay Hanks and Hamilton, plus Brain and Creed, but it's a big building job.

I know it was brief, but I did like the look of Brain when he came on. Thought Harlain did well as well considering he was a CB in a team not playing with fullbacks!

Sticking around a while yet, thanks to a gift from a generous angel.

If Wright doesnt retire he may well want another season in football,and dont forget Emmett, If that is correct , its a better start than last summer.

The managerial merry-go-round hasn’t got us anywhere, so it’s another vote to stick with Cook. His tactics have been questionable at times but I’d like to see what he could do with a full pre-season and the ability to build his own squad.

I honestly wouldn’t be too upset if he goes, I wasn’t that excited by the appointment in the first place - not really a big fan of going back to old managers. If his contract was just until the end of the season then also that probably pushes me to out as well.

We’ve been marginally better than the Flowers period, I think even worse against ‘easier’ opponents in terms of PPG someone posted recently. He waits too long to change games as well in my opinion usually only making subs once we’ve conceded, obviously bar today where he’s got the line up totally wrong. His interviews don’t inspire me either.

I can see why some would want to keep him, continuity especially is something we’ve been lacking in recent years.

I'm apathetic. Cooky is a nice bloke, and I like his coaching team, but they were an uninspiring appointment, and results show they clearly haven't inspired. He's done a 5 out of 10 job. Better football, but scarcely better results.

Unless we completely implode throughout the rest of the season, I'd let him have a go in the Southern League. If we're not in and around the play offs come Christmas, move him on.

I really like Cooky - always makes an effort to speak to supporters before the match, and I've been impressed with his frankness in those conversations (in particular a few of the details regarding player departures).

That being said, it has been disappointing season and he hasn't been able to turn us around. Whilst someone 'upstairs' has an awful lot to answer for, the players/coaches share a lot of the blame for the collapses and lacklustre performances.

I'd be happy to see him stay - if he has a clean slate, and without interference from a certain individual, I think he could be a good choice.

That being said, with all the rubbish going on upstairs, I don't envy whoever is in the dugout next season.

see that's the problem, same old **** and we're just a year older. I really think it's a sign of the clubs ambition if they keep the manager who took us down Sad

The question is always the same in these situations - is there anyone out there better, and importantly, willing?

The club is a basket case, a manager must be mad to want to be involved.
