Our first 7 results last year 0v2, 1v4, 2v2, 2v3, 0v1, 0v1, 0v2 and that with a much more experienced team.
In my opinion it’s too early to judge. We don’t know and I’m sure Cox doesn’t know yet which of these players are good enough for a regular spot in the team. Hippolyte was praised in the first game and poor in the third. Loft – good and bad games. Spence and Vincent – first 3 matches together.
His priority surely is to get off to a decent start and then see where we are when our more experienced players return.
The defence has 2 young full backs, one making his debut and the other playing out of position. It’s surely not surprising that Cox is being cautious and the team played to hang on to their lead. If he had done otherwise people would have complained about giving away a late goal.
See where we are after 10 games. Hopefully the team will be more confident and Cox will have more trust to send them out with attacking intent when he thinks the defence and keeper are reliable.
