Thank you Paul Cook

Thank you Paul Cook

These words of praise for Paul Cook, which is only fair to be honest given the fact Cookie seems to get A LOT of criticism fairly quickly, have just arrived in my mailbox from Stmonkton52.

I am a bit surprised we haven't heard more praise for the manager. Two months ago I thought he had blown it and should be on his way, so it is only fair to applaud him now. What a difference March and April have brought.

The run in to promotion has been fantastic and I for one am happy to give the manager lots of credit for that performance.

It is a long time since we finished a season this happy so well done Paul Cook.

Yes, like I say I think Stmonkton52 certainly has a point and praise for Cookie - as frustrating as he can be at times - should be dished out, after all he's achieved what he said he would.

I cannot get this song out on my mind again now...

Woke up this morning feeling fine.
I've got promotion on my mind.
Paul Cook's taking us up, like he said he would. Oh yeah.
Something tells me I'm onto something good... 1,2,3,4.

Duo sign professional Pompey deals

Will Jez Bedford and Theo Widdrington be the future Pompey midfield? We'll certainly hope so, clearly the Blues do too or they wouldn't have signed professional deals at Fratton Park.

Nathan Thompson - A Swindon perspective

Prior to his departure for Wigan, Paul Cook wanted Nathan Thompson at Pompey. Interest was retained by Kenny Jackett, who completed his free transfer signing from Swindon last week.
