Cox - no football league experience and was found out at this level
Murray - no management experience and we never troubled the top half
Evans - finally we get somebody with a track record in and we were near the top until he buggered off with only 4 losses in 30 or something like that.
Flitcroft - again has a promotion on his CV and we are challenging near the top.
Dempster - back to no experience and it was a total disaster
Coughlan - no real experience or tangible success and it’s hardly going swimmingly.
To me it’s absolutely no coincidence that the two managers who have performed best for us out of the last 6 (EFL only) were the ones with a decent track record and a promotion already on their CV.
Harsh on cox... we got promoted then look at the standard of players he was able to sign.. Fergus flipping bell and co.
And to say we never troubled the top half with Murray isn't true... we were 4th under him playing good stuff with an average side at one point.
Both should have been given the proper backing others have been fortunate to get recently.
