TBH I'd rather see him taking over the academy and let Toshack take over the senior team. Toshack's influence coincided with improved results when he assisted managers in the past and has worked with players who are nearer senior standards than Cooper.
His attitude strikes me as being like Bradley but a bully with it - OK for kids but grown ups?


I haven't been paying much attention over the past few weeks and don't know much about the guy, but what makes you say that about his attitude?

I can't think of a way of making the question sound less accusatory - I'm honestly just curious!

He may do well he may not. Martinez was 34 when he became our manager and had zero experience. John Toshack was 29 when he took over and he had zero managerial experience.

Cooper has done well so far, he has more experience than the two above, and we do have a lot of youngsters so he may be a good fit for us. If Cooper has what it takes, this will be his chance to show it.

I think the Championship is a tough league for a novice.

I would have gone for some experience.... cos the team itself lacks experience.

The new chairman needs this to work.?

Interesting but to to be honest way above my head. There again I haven’t got any coaching badges. I’d stand a better chance of becoming Tory leader I reckon. I’d like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony.......

Pressed wrong arrow . Totally agree experience needed . How is this novice going to handle some of the strong characters in the changing room when they start having their say. And on what basis will he be able to gain their confidence and respect ..... unfortunately I am World Cup Winner ....under 17 .... might just not be enough

He's said that his players usually come to decisions together as a group. Sometimes he will tell them, he wants to do it a different way.
He has coaches for when we have the ball and coaches for when we don't.
Sounds to me as if it will be more of a team effort.

I'm getting more and more excited about this with every new article I read.
Could go either way, but I'd rather gamble on this, than any of the others without doubt tbh.

Potter wasn’t exactly Attila the Hun and that didn’t go too badly did it? The strong characters (or disruptive elements aka) have left our dressing room for good hopefully, all we have now are kids, Nath, Wayne and Naughton. Hardly Monk and Williams lol are they?

Damned before he starts and condemned as the "cheap option" when the club could have appointed someone already here.

Good luck Steve. You're going to need it.

Pain or damage don't end the world. Or despair, or f*cking beatings. The world ends when you're dead. Until then, you got more punishment in store. Stand it like a man... and give some back.

Wouldn't argue with that although if it's right about Mike Marsh as his number 2 he will add some level of experience plus contacts gained under Dagliesh & Wagner at both Liverpool & Huddesfield.

As I have said back in the post, he is a cheap option but that is not the issue.

We could have gone for Houghton, Jokanovic or Pulis but we went for Cooper for our own reasons but ultimately is a cheaper option if that was planned or not.....we all know that answer.

You are right though, he will need some luck unless the board support him.

The fact that you even mentioned Pulis as an option is bad enough.

I agree he should have not been an option but I just used him as an example.

You are obviously missing the point, or even worse, dont want to see it.

I hope he succeeds but ultimately to what was available(right or wrong), he was a cheaper option.

You have no point. You're just looking for reasons to whinge. It's what you do.

The point is, you whinged that people will say he will be a cheap option, I pointed out ultimately he is a cheap option compared to what else we could have got.

Ultimately that was always going to be the option with the board we have. Inexperienced managers have worked for us before in Roberto so hopefully it does again.

As stated, if he gets some support then I think he will be fine......if he doesnt then it will be a hard season.

There is a point Winston, there genuinely is.

So you would rather have Pulis because he is more expensive?

I am happy with the choice. I didn't want another tried/tested and failed type of manager bouncing from club to club.

So think carefully.
He gets appointed on a pittance salary, Toshack and Richards will fück off ( more money saved ) is this really the way forward ?


It's the cheapest way forward and a massive gamble!

I know nothing about him and wish him all the success in the world. One of the things we have become known for is giving inexperienced young managers a chance. I’d much rather that than plucking a manager off the roundabout of failure as so many clubs do.

It’s a gamble but they’re all gambles. Hopefully he’ll stay at least a couple of seasons and by then will be being looked at by bigger and richer clubs. If he then becomes Judas number 4 or 5 or whatever we’re up to now it will be proof that he’s done well.
