Unfinished business
One of the club's most popular managers was back in the dugout in late 2011 when Neale Cooper returned for a second spell in charge. There were still unanswered questions regarding the end of Cooper's first spell but it was clear that any obstacles to his return had been overcome. Sadly, things were much less successful second time around.
