Look; I actually like Cole. I'd have rather let Jackman walk and given that spot to Cole. But that didn't happen. We need to deal with the reality of Hitchcocks team; and the way things look right now Cole is either sitting or sent back down. Personally; I'd prefer he get sent back down with a specific set of goals to achieve. I don't like the thought of him being relegated to "7th man" status.
You seem to be the only Blues fan here that thinks that's "the reality"
