Very insightful article in the news where he opens up about previous managers and cook.

So we could have had Hylton.Think a few fans had said in the past they would have liked him

Interesting to hear cook had man management issues. No great surprise I guess given that most decent sportsmen in their own right need to be very self indulgent. Not a great attribute for a leader of men.

really excellent article, hope the News haters might actually admit that.
Knowing that we could have had Hylton is very annoying. He looked the best striker in the division when Luton played here. Jan 2016, if we had signed him rather than Smith, would we have been promoted a year early perhaps?
The comment about "motivational tactics and skills" certainly explains why so few players have followed him north. Probably also explains why the players looked so frightened to express themselves at Fratton Park until after the Crewe debacle.

its irrelevant how paul cooks motivational tactics and skills were, we won the league. Just like he said he loved guy but they still sacked him. You can be vlad tepes but if you win the league thats all that matters.

Still talking boll0cks then baldy.

So it's ok to accept a man manager who has limited man management skills because he got us out of a XXXXXX league??

Not a cook lover but he Did What He Said Hed Do. Its One Person Saying He Doesnt Have Man Management Skills. He Had Enough For What He Needed To Do. whether He Could win The Championship with the same managerial style Is yet To Be Tested.

Yes count but let's not forget how close we were to it being a XXXXXX season and some of the comments in this report could explain why the very talented bunch of players we had were failing to consistently perform?

Pasta con la sarde e pasta alla norma. Sicily's finest traditional pastas. Delizioso.

Give Palermo a try as well whilst you're there..a wonderful city full of architectural treasures..especially the cathedral.

La Spezia & Genoa both nice places. Venice-very interesting place but horribly overpriced. Taranto-total dump.

The Snooze article is very revealing & would like to give my sincere thanks to Mark Trapani for doing an excellent job. His motives very totally unselfish giving up his time & energy for the well being of the club. I think his effort along with the other directors deserves some form of recognition.

I just love everything about Palermo. Great street food, ice cream sandwiches in Brioche. About the only downside is the crazy driving.

I'm tentatively planning a three-week tour round the island on a vespa next summer. Start in Palermo, head an hour south to see family near Corleone, cross over to Trapani then south to Marsala, Sciacca and Agrigento, drive across the south coast to Syracuse then up past Catania and Taormina to Messina, head back to Palermo with a couple of days by the seaside at Cefalu.

I've travelled most of the route except Agrigento to Syracuse and the scenery and food is incredible all the way round.

I did similar trip last year in a car. Based myself near Palermo recommend visit to Mondello great town beach outside Palermo. Stayed in Taormina and Syracuse preferred Syracuse. Taormina although in stunning location feels the least Sicilian place visited. Not sure about the vespa though get yourself good health insurance 😀.Sicily and Sardinia are both fantastic destinations can't decide which to go to next.

Syracuse to Agrigento is quite a distance. Stopped off in Modica famous for strange tasting Chocolate but definitely worth stopping for a few hours stunning scenery from Modica Alta. Great food as almost everywhere in Sicily.

Taormina's very touristy but it's a great walk up to the top and the view from the Greek amphitheatre is superb. There were a couple of nice bars for a cold Moretti or three on the way down.

Last time I went was with about a dozen of us and we hired a huge 8 bedroom farmhouse in Acireale near Catania set in amongst olive, lemon and fig trees. Fresh seafood on the bbq every night, Sicilian sausages, great cheese and decent wine at about 2 a bottle. Absolutely perfect.

I think there'll be about 15 of us going this year and hiring a similar place near Sciacca for five days, then three days in my wife's family's village and a couple of nights in Palermo to finish up.

It's definitely going to be Gilles' retirement destination as soon as I can afford it.

If they could sort out the fly tipping it would be close to perfect.

Biscotti amarena di Napoli are a staple Sicilian snack too- amazing! I visited the village where Godfather was filmed- it isn't actually Corleone as that's a total dump but somewhere inland for Taormina. Beautiful place!! Minchia!!!

I don't mind corleone. Not much there but it's pretty enough. Mrs de Rabies' family come from the two towns next to it - Contessa Entellina and Besequena.

Cannoli is my favourite snack. So unhealthy but so, so good.

Spent a couple of weeks in Marsala. Lovely place. Recommend the Restaurant A Due Passi Dal Mare on the outskirts. Exquisite seafood from their own fishing boat and a top notch location.
