Cook had no choice but to go. His extended stay would have damaged the club's image and reputation of the club - in any case he was really dumb to write something like that in the first place, and has learnt a lesson the hard way...He did a lot for the club - but we'll still thrive without him!

The e-mail in itself was not a resigning matter. The fact that he panicked and claimed someone hacked his account was. Sad to see him go, but can fully understand our owners decision to push him out. The media completely overreacted to this story, and it put the pressure on - but Cook would have survived if he'd owned up to what was a slightly distasteful turn of words rather than trying to cover it up to save his own arse. Pity Captain Marvel doesn't have the same scruples as GC, as I notcie he's still a global ambassador for the rags despite appearing on film advising people on how to break the law. Still, nice to know that despite our wealth and success, City still have the basic morals that the rags don't seem to have ever had.

Ultimately he's paid the price for bad judgement both in the nature of the comments he made and, critically, his decision to claim he wasn't responsible. Whatever the origin it became a matter of image & reputation for the owners. The club hierarchy reacted calmly, swiftly & decisively to avoid an extention of the media witch-hunt and the subject should now be denied the further 'oxygen of publicity'. They ahve ensured it has been resolved before the weekend and will not linger on to tarnish our bow in the Champions League. It may get discussed by the hacks on Sunday Supplement who will be sharpening their knives for their next target but otherwise it ought now to wither away. I am intensely disappointed that this matter has surfaced in the way that it has - 11 months after the event - and that someone who, despite his gaffes, appears to have won the respect of the owners and many of the supporters. He does seem to have been in touch with them. I was particularly impressed by the way he embraced some of the old players & showed respect for the club's past - the rapparoachment with Paul Lake is an excellent example. I just hope that the club have learnt to keep that snake Joorabchian at several arms length. Overall I feel the club has wethered this very well, they have limited the damage and we must now dust ourselves down, not let it deflect from our excellent start and move on. What's next? The Champions League. Game On!
