I wish Cox all the best, if he does well, the club will do well. However, I cannot share your optimism, with a very thin squad made of unprovens & unknowns. And without a decent goalscorer, as far as we can see.
But it will be interesting to see if we can finally start to see midfielders scoring some goals, which has been a weakness for a couple of seasons, and maybe the adversity of our current situation will galvanise something among the players. The great thing about August is anything seems possible. At least until the end of the first game!
