Cook is a better player than his body language suggests.

It took him a little while to settle, but he seemed to come alive when Hannah joined on loan, and we went top of the league with those two up front together — that's when Marcus Marshall looked a prospect.

I liked Cook — he was young at the time but had played a lot of 'men's' football at Barrow, and scored regularly. You could tell he had something about him. Thought he was excellent in the air, for a young lad. Had a bit of footballing intelligence.

As with most strikers, unless they're adored or promised to be played each week, they easily lose form, confidence, faith, etc. Think he's no exception. We signed a load of strikers in the January window (including Brodie) and he wasn't quite the same after that.

Clearly finds it easier to score in non-league — he was quite prolific at Barrow and Tranmere.

If we could forget that he was an ex-player, looking at his stats and scoring record independently, we'd be delighted if we'd just signed someone like that on loan for the rest of the season.

However, being an ex-player, many of us had already made their minds up about him. And as someone else has said, even though Hurst (and Scott) signed him previously, I'm not sure his character is a good fit for us at the moment.

Definitely a striker capable of giving defenders a tough afternoon. Him and Payne/Hanson would be a handful for any team. I just worry about the supply.

He was no more than decent here but flipping hell three quarters of the players we sign are shite when they’re here so that’s no surprise.

Has had a decent career since.

Cook was on  over 4 grand a week at Mansfield . Same as Kyle Bennett at Bristol Rovers. The worlds gone mad. Have a look at this

Just been looking at other clubs on this site. Kevin van veen on 4k a week, no wonder the scunts are broke. I am surprised Pádraig Amond is only on £800 a week at Newport though.

If that’s correct about Podge, and he’s on more there than we offered him, that’s got to be the Mistake of the Century (so far) at Town.

Could it be that his pay has fallen recently?

People moan about Gibson but you can't really complain at £0 a week.
