EDITORS BLOG: Cooper Should Take Responsibility
Let's be honest, Swindon Town's performances home and away have been poor as of late.
Town manager Mark Cooper however repeatedly comes out with the same excuses and to be honest it's getting boring now.
Cooper constantly says the team is a young team and will take time to adjust. How come then a few months ago this wasn't a problem apart from away from home? Is it a case the team is tired? Could be but again this is down to the manager to sort out.
Another excuse Cooper constantly uses is the referees were poor. Whilst we can sympathise somewhat, the man in the black doesn't 'pass' the ball or play for Swindon Town or any other team for that matter. Again the manager doesn't take any responsibility for the poor performance.
The most recent excuse is that Cooper blames the players. When Cooper is quizzed on why the team didn't perform he arrogantly just says 'ask the players'.
The players appeared to want to play under Cooper hence why he got the job but it appears as if that may no longer be the case with some players.
Mark Cooper is the manager of Swindon Town Football Club so the Buck ultimately stops with him.
I'm not saying sack Cooper by any stretch of the imagination, but it's time for Cooper to accept some responsibility for the recent rubbish performances and get things back on track.
There appears to be a bit of arrogance and blame anyone but Cooper in the gaffers post match interviews.
Time to sort it out Cooper before the fan base turns on you.
