I paid for the match today which is the first time I’ve chosen to and I won’t again now.
What I don’t understand is, is why after faltering in the 1st half he goes defensive to try and rectify it and kept with the same players.
If that’s Cox’s attempt at attacking intent then I’m lost for words.
I wouldn’t have even started Eisa anyway, I would have gone with Olomola upfront with Loft to start with as we know Eisa won’t be staying.
Why not see if he hits it off with Loft ?
He should have stuck with 4/4/2 and 2nd half stuck Olomola upfront with Loft after 10 mins of it.
I don’t get why going 4/3/3 and leaving Loft isolated in a bid to stifle the midfield is being deemed as an attacking move.
Somebody worked out on twitter that 9 times out of 37 this season we’ve had 1 or less shots on target.
That’s ridiculous. All points to a manager with the handbrake firmly pressed down. Very, very negative.
I don’t think experience will sort it either. I think this is just his style, you do get managers who just naturally very, very wary.
I think Cox is just like this so nothing can really be done about it. Having Green one side, Gillead the other with Loft and somebody with the pace and occasional trickiness of Eisa should ever result in that shower.
This isn’t a knee jerk reaction either with what I’m about to say. I honestly don’t think Cox will ever get us out of this league. Not got the right sort of mindset. I felt that for some time now.
I don’t know how we manage to do this, but, he’s an ever so slightly more adventurous Russ Wilcox.
