Dominic Cork makes a good point

Test cricket England

Would Harmison still be the Harmison of 2004 if Cooley were still around? I would bet on it, if I were a betting man. Since Cooley left, we've turned into one of the most toothless bowling attacks in the world.

Yes, Cork should be back in the set up. He can bat too, possibly going to get his half century this morning.

Harmison is far too erratic.

Yeah Cork's days as a bowler are over though he had a decent career as a bowler but the comments he makes about Cooley is right.

Elvis, where have you been for the past 2 years? Dead?
The issue of Cooley being let go by the ECB has been cited as a key reason for the ineptitude of England's bowling many moons ago.
Have you just woken up the fact?

Maybe it is true that Troy Cooley has made such a difference to teams. Harmison obviously needs something more than he is getting from whatever or whoever is around him, though I think he has a bit of an attitude anyway.

Was the reason we have become a toothless attack is that Cooley was only focusing on the big 4, Harmison, Jones, Flintoff and Hoggard and not concentrating on the ones coming through, Plunkett, Anderson, Mahmood etc.?
