Time up for Coops
Neale Cooper's second spell as Hartlepool United manager came to an end after ten frustrating months at the helm. Having taken over from Mick Wadsworth in December 2011, Cooper failed to find the magic touch that he'd enjoyed first time around. He quit with Pools bottom of the league having won just one of their opening fourteen games.
