Get off Cole's back
02 August, 2018 11:01
So he signs back for a year and people already on his case. Some of our fans are fickle beyond belief...absolute keyboard warriors. Stockton scored quite a lot in his last season between Morecambe and us....so much so a Scottish Premier League side signed him. It hasn't worked out but he holds it up well and could build a partnership with Norwood. Mo Salah wasn't prolific when he was young...now look at him. For once,rather than moan and complain can't we get behind the team and players. No doubt if we aren't top by end of September some of you will be calling for Mickey's head. SWA

To be fair , most posters on here have been OK about this signing.

Most of us have said give him a chance to show what he can do.

Its only a minority that have slated him, and hopefully they will have to eat their words if he manages to rekindle his form.

A one year deal on a free is great for the club and Micky has already indicated that he is trying to bring in another forward player.

Too soon to be getting on anyone's backs yet.

Let's hope Micky's faith in Stockton is repaid on the field of play?

Welcome home Cole, I'm sure the majority of fans wish you well!

Just signed in to make a similar comment you beat me to it, Cole did us proud at the end of 2016/17 season and I believe with the right service he could do it again. If I remember a lot of the goals he scored were supplied by Nors, so why cant this be done again. Further more with the show I've seen from Zoom, Caprice and Gilmour, along with the performances from our usual suspects I feel that there will be other avenues for service and hopefully assists for Cole and Nors to convert. Negativity breeds negativity, lets be positive about our return and climb the table to success.

theonewiththeflask- I agree completely about cole Stockton. if everyone remembers - gary brabin did not rate cole Stockton and sent him out on a half season loan to Morecambe fc were he scored approx. 11 goals. then with half a season to go , brabin got sacked - micky mellon came in he recalled Stockton from his loan, and he scored another 11 or so goals for us in the 2nd half of that season. so approx. 22 goals in one season is not bad at all. if he can get anywere near that this season- that should be ok.

Please , please everyone. Give Cole a fair chance. He is not , and never will be, Andy Cook but showed the season before last that he can be quite a handful when given the right service . Keep the faith!!

How emotive to use terms like get off his back or give him a chance. Expressing doubts about his qualities on this board is very different to barracking him at a game.Read what the Carlisle supporters thought some described him as the worst player they had seen in a Carlisle shirt.
I very much doubt that any player is much influenced by postings for if they were that sensitive they would never cope with football.
As someone has observed Stockton is a marmite player. In the early years I thought that he would develop but this didn't really happen and a succession of managers may have missed opportunities to aid his formative years.
As with all players I want him to do well but surely it is not compulsory that we must speak in glowing terms about any signing

It's up to him. The first thing he's got to do is give 100% . If he doesn't he's got no chance.

On the subject of Dai Kwondo and his team, I see that Wrexham have signed Jordan Maguire-Drew on a full one season loan from Brighton. I remember seeing him a couple of times on live bt sports games when he played for the Daggers, a good exciting attacking player I thought. I also see that Daggers striker Michael cheek has signed for Ebbsfleet.

You posted this at 1201. Read the posts about cole before this time. I can’t find much dissing him at all. Like you say us fans can be fickle, EFC when Rooney went to mufc was the anti christ, the king again when he returned. Myself and from what I read, the majority of us are more than happy to give him another go with us. Your post appears to want to fan bash, more than defend Cole against what doesn’t appear to be a witch hunt at this time.

I think to suggest I'm fan bashing is the sound of a defensive fan. Well done for trawling through the 20 odd comments on Cole and selecting the positive ones out. I've been in Wembley after Forest Green when fans were slating Mickey for starting Cole. Those fans who celebrated his departure...who said he was a failure when released. It is well known that a selection of Tranmere fans get on teams back over nothing. So much so it was well accepted our home form was poor for several years due to the poisonous attitude at Prenton Park. So call me a fan basher all you want mate but everything I say is truth.

There were not many fans on here that that I recall we're happy to see him go.There were some and I was among them that we're sorry that after the first bit of sustained form for us that he choose to depart and via a route that brought nothing to the club to compensate for the investment in his development.
Most posters now are not being anti Cole more taking the view that the jury remains out on whether he can reproduce the few months of sustained performance shown in his last season
