While I always think it’s a risky strategy sticking a new defender/keeper straight in the starting xi, perhaps less so with a midfielder or forward. If it were a home game, think he’d definitely go straight in. Unsure about what’s best.
While Cook can be frustrating when he disappears in games, still the best striker we have. Hopefully Micky has realised this after his errors of judgement early in the season and Waring will be used as back-up.
How much is getting back in the FL worth to us, would reckon more than £75k. If Cook goes, we don’t have the firepower to cover him and wouldn’t get anyone near his calibre to replace him. However, do think Cook would want to go and he’s adept at laying low when the mood takes him, so not as easy a decision as it first looks.
We'd almost certainly have to use his fee and likely more to get anyone close to a suitable replacement. At this stage Cookie doesn't have a say and hopefully the club will reject all offers.
As Boz suggests, if we keep him and go up then missing out on £75k now is neither here nor there.
