Gary Cook

I think GARY COOK must be sacked instantly, before he destroys
the Club and our Owners' credibility. His comments indicate that he thinks he is
Marketing a "Cereal" or similar product - not individual persons, the Club or the
Owners. He obviously has little knowledge of Football in this country and has
now become a laughing stock in the Media. How City can employ someone who is
disrespecting to all and sundry, Italy's Prime Minister and owner of one of the
Worlds biggest Clubs, Milan is very serious, as over time, our Club and
owners will be pariahs and will find it impossible to have any relationships
in business or football.
Our Owners are very private individuals, and will not be pleased at his latest
rantings in the media.
What do other City fans think?

  1. I think you need to learn to spell his name correctly first.

  2. I wholeheartedly agree.
    He has been a walking nightmare since he arrived. He's lurched from insulting the club sponsors (calling Thomas Cook "any old Tom, Dick and Harry" ) to threatening to sue a 5-a-side seniors football team for using the Man City "brand" (ie wearing the City kit), to calling for the Premier League to abolish relegation, to the famous, "I'm not going to get into a slanging match with AC Milan. They bottled it!" and a whole host of other totally unnacceptable nonsense in between. He is the epitome of the clueless Disney-fied American exec rolling into town witout any understanding of his "market". For all his pseudo-speak, the man clearly hasn't deprived Nike any brain-power by leaving.

  4. Can't have it both ways i'm afraid.
    Of course i've cringed at some of his comments, especially as one of those Senior players, David White, helped to keep Manchester City on the football map during a particularly bleak spell for both City and the National game.
    Where I disagree is the subject of AC Milan and the subsequent Media vitriol.
    Gary Cook claimed that an agreement had been made with both Hamburg and AC Milan to keep all the dealings private regarding the potential transfers of DE Jong and Kaka.
    Check out the Hamburg page on the Bundesliga website and their spokesman made exactly the same comment on January 16th regarding the De Jong transfer.
    My interpretation is that Hamburg kept their word, but Milan deliberately leaked information to appease their volatile fan base. Don't forget that Milan are still skint and Madrid are lurking on the horizon. Don't be too surprised if Kaka disappears in the Summer.
    If City beat Newcastle we'll be in the top half with ten points from a possible twelve. The team and squad are slowly evolving into an ambititious, hard working outfir and if that annoys the Media then even better.
    Perhaps City are crying out for someone who listens to his head rather than his heart. We've tried and failed on more than one occasion, using the other method.
