    Excellent article. Alot of Manchester City supporters are blaming the media for Garry Cook’s departure. However, they should look at some of Garry Cook’s comments (such as his praise of Thaksin Shinawatra who is well known for his terrible human rights record when he was Prime Minister of Thailand). If he did say those comments about Dr Onuoha then he should be disgusted with himself and has only himself to blame for losing his job. Like other Chief Executives in the Premier League his arrogance clouded his judgement and he probably thought he was untouchable, therefore he could say what he likes. Hopefully this incident will restore some humanity to his soul – something that has been lacking in his comments over the last few years.
