Cookie Watch # 7

Whilst our current manager comes under increasing pressure our former manager sees a slight up turn in fortunes. Its interesting that despite feeling it was the right decision to sack him, I still keep an eye out for his progress in Spain. I think this shows that, whatever his shortcomings as a manager were, as a person and former Fulham player he was held in high regard. I'm not sure the same is true for Sanchez. I'm also developing a bit of a soft spot for Real Sociedad. Sociedad remain in 9th place in La Liga 2 but are only 3 points away from a promotion place. Coleman is still in a slightly vulnerable position as there are club presidential elections due in January which may see a new regime take charge, but for now he's quietly getting on with the job. A last minute winner in their recent away game at Grenada, and an eight game unbeaten run, will go a long way towards improving his position.
