I do feel for Cox, he’s been dealt an incredibly bad hand – and for his first role in management that isn’t particularly fair on him.
However, as with many things in life, you’ve got to work with what you’ve got – this means getting maximum performance from your staff for as long as possible before a) you’re in a position to force the crap ones out or b) the high performers may sadly jump ship on their own accord.
Whilst I don’t disagree with any of Cox’s comments in his post match interviews, and clearly he feels massively let down, I just do not see what he hopes to achieve by publicly slating his players. There’s nothing wrong in thinking that someone isn’t good enough but publicly stating these thoughts so that it’s splashed all over the internet and the newspapers is an entirely matter.
Not sure my motivation and performance would improve if my manager essentially told me that I was sh*t and would never be good enough?
We’ve seen that the team can grind out results when all pulling in the same direction, but motivation, confidence and desire to succeed seems to be at all time low.
