This weekend saw Wigan lose 3-0 to Brentford. Fans are now getting increasingly frustrated with Paul Cook and their team’s performances.
While most fans are wanting to see change, most still actually like Cook. He’s done a lot for Wigan over the years and fans won’t disregard that.
However, the excuses he keeps making for the losses and poor performances are really getting to fans.
One week he will blame the Championship itself and say the league is too hard. Another he may blame the players.
If he is to be replaced soon, the question right now is who will replace him? There are a few options like Sam Allardyce that would be sensible, but as a Bolton fan, I’d hate to see that.
Here’s two who would be great options…
The 60-year-old certainly has experience when it comes to management. He has had many successful jobs at Tottenham, Newcastle, Brighton and Birmingham to name a few.
He has played and managed at different levels. Furthermore, Hughton has 2 Championship promotions, a play-off place and stabilizing Norwich City and Brighton in the Premier League.
Possibly most remembered for his time at Everton, Moyes could be a perfect replacement. Experience at Preston, Sunderland, Man United and West Ham could also help.
He has been out of a job since he left West Ham last year. Could Wigan be his next task? It certainly wouldn’t be a bad move in his career as he seems to thrive in tough situations.
