I doubt the owners will be as patient with the manager this season if things go pear shaped. Leeds followed by two tricky away games will test our management team. We need an away victory to settle the nerves.
I believe the Leeds game will prove extremely important for Paul Cook. He is adrift and has learnt nothing from last season. Team selection, tactics are weird, to say the least. I think if we lose on Saturday David Unsworth will be in charge before the next home game.
Very much doubt that. I think most people expect us to get beat by Leeds, as long as it's not 4 or 5, remember Cook kept us up last season, most of our managers get until bonfire night, I think Hutchings was the exception?
Cook will be going nowhere and rightly so until we are marooned in the bottom three with a genuine fight on our hands to stay up.
I’ll panic if we start getting beat at home by the likes of Barnsley in a few weeks and Charlton next month. Certainly not Leeds who will probably finish in the top 2 with the best manager in the league.
They turned last year after Blackburn away but we won the Bolton match which would have seen the end of him I’m sure had we failed to win. I reckon he was also on the brink after New Year’s Day but once again won a vital home game against Aston Villa which possibly kept him in the job.
Over 8 million spent, no players sold for big money by the board, if we’re in the bottom three at Christmas, the fans will turn without a doubt.
