Cook In Question

Cook In Question



Reports are knocking around 'The Street of Shame' that City Chief Executive Officer Garry Cook's position is under review by the club's owners...

There was a collective groan across Planet Blue last week when Cook berkishly announced at a fans 'Heart of The City' get together in New York City that The Blues were going to be the biggest club in the world and it was a case of when City next beat united, not if. And cameras were rolling.

Considering what has gone before where Mr. C is concerned, the comments couldn't have been more badly timed with united on the ropes at the half way stage of the League Cup semi-final. Rag midfielder Darren Fletcher then went on to confirm that Cook's sentiments had served to form part of united's pre match team talk before the second leg.

Dan Taylor at the Grauniad has today suggested that Cook's role at the club is under scrutiny following a string of gaffs ranging from 14 team Premier League ideas, welcoming Uwe into the rag hall of fame, the Kakagate shambles, the shocking handling of the Mark Hughes sacking, the subsequent Mancini press conference and an admission that he should have never got involved with Thaksin Shinawatra.

None of it good publicity and if City's owners are considering Cook's position then in truth it won't come as a surprise to the vast majority of City fans.

Cook has to leave his brash persona behind and seek forgiveness from the powers that be.

Cook has to engage brain before spouting about things he has little knowledge of and stick to things that he does best and one of them is not public speaking.

Journalists are under pressure from editors who are under pressure from chief execs to sell more copies / get more page views. Bad news on big clubs sells best, and Taylor was supposedly asked to spice up negative City stories where possible. Remember the number of his Robinho to Chelsea stories last season - well into double figures. With Robinho gone, a new focus is required. Today it's Cook. If he goes, it will switch to someone else. Cook's done a lot of good work driving this 'project' forward on many levels, not least in selling the club to Adug in the first place.

Our understanding here is that Pairoj Piempongsant was the man who sold Manchester City to ADUG. Cook and Thaksin were nowhere to be seen at that time. Mark Hughes ran the club almost singlehandedly that summer, most notablly blocking Stevie Ireland's proposed sale to Sunderland that he had no dealing in.

Pairoj was also behind the Robinho signing.
