The Cook report

Where the outside world sees a team languishing in the middle of the Barclays Premier League after a disappointing first season under the ownership of the Abu Dhabi United Group and the management of Mark Hughes, Cook, the chief executive, sees progress and boundless potential.

A brief paraphrase of a lengthy piece that but eatured in todays timesonline from an interview with Garry Cook, where, amongst other things he discussed Mark Hughes, transfers, the owners and future hopes for the club.

Say what you will about Cook - and he has had his detractors both amongst fans and the media, but he does strike as a positive guy, used to success and very clear in what he wants and setting out his vision in how to achieve it.

There are some interesting topics covered and well worth taking a read.

vote it up!

Nice read, covers all the ground. But i am always concious when readign and listening to cook, that he is 1st and foremost, a marketing man. It generally always going to have a positive vibe that fans want to hear!
