    Not useless, not unfit, not lazy etc. Very good player but missed two vital chances. Happens most games to some striker. Take your chances, win the games. Always been true, always will be.

    There are clubs and their fans in the Prem who would have loved Cocu to be their manager. At last we have a manager with pedigree which has been really missing from some of our previous appointments. Mel hasn't given him a 4 year contract for nothing.Mel is happy to give him time so that he can create stability within the club from a footballing perspective, bring the young blood through and ultimately gain promotion

    Sir Cocu's calm and precise analysis of the Stoke match surely shows a master at work.
    He's unhappy at four points lost, despite a far from ideal and rather short pre-season. This shows the high winning standard he has set for the squad. No talk of the last 12 games being the key to promotion - every game is the key to promotion from August onwards.
    He explains how he saw the first half today and why he made what some saw as baffling changes. He then describes succintly the resulting improvement whilst calmly listing the failings which need to be eliminated.
    He doesn't talk about Plans A or B, he analyses what's happening in the match and changes formations, tactics and players as soon as the need is evident.
    Our captain who's had more than his fair share of club and international managers, says training is an eye-opener. Gradually, we can see why.
    Sir Cocu is taking our club to a higher level than I can recall in many decades. No banal generalities, no superficial banter with the interviewer. The players ere expected to work hard mentally as well as physically.
    It seems to me that Frank relied on a team formula of hard work, energy, and pressing whilst he motivated the players with his personality, humour and winning determination. Frustratingy it didn't always work, especially away to inferior teams. In contrast, our new management is more cerebral and concentrates on developing each player's technical and positioning and adaptability skills, as well as the team performance. So those players of any age who want to improve themselves and be stretched will relish the fabulous opportunity. Those that don't or can't will fall by the wayside, if the steely glint in the manager's eye is anything to go by.
    Of course there will be setbacks and disappointments. But there's some real building work going on here and it's a privilege to see it unfold.
    Thanks DCFC for the astute and synergistic investment in facilities and management.

    We were spoiled with Mount. Dowell is a good player and just settling in. I don't think we can judge him straight away on where Mount left.

    It hasn't been a bad start to the season compared to past season when we had a fortuitous victory at Reading, were thrashed at home by Leeds and had a dire defeat by Millwall away. The current injuries don't help nor does the failure to replace Wilson adequately. However we won one more point at Stoke then we managed last season and a win on Tuesday will consolidate our position. Could have been better had Waghorn converted the penalty and the late opportunity against Stoke but it could have been worse-see Huddersfield.

    Fair result in the end (if anything, they edged it). 
    The system change was totally out the blue and bizarre. Bielik looks the real deal but tried to do too much today and did get caught out. Their second was bizarre considering we had 3 central defenders. 
    Cocu needs to learn his best team (and fast). Marriott HAS to be in that team. He was absolutely excellent when he came on. Jozefzoon is still leaving a lot to be desired, can’t understand him staying on.
    Lots if positives, i’d of certainly taken 5 points with 2 away games and tough fixtures.
