Thread: Cameron Coxe released.....

  1. #1

    Cameron Coxe released.....

    Bit of a shocker but unfortunately yesterday and today eight u23 players have been released by the club.
    Cameron being the most high profile of the youngsters.
    Steve Morrisons brush is sweeping clean.
    Paid up until the end of the season but all eight are clubless having been told they’re not good enough and shown the door. 🤔🤐

    Strange time of year to be doing that. 8 players seems a lot. Sounds a liitle disruptive.

    Seems very strange. I mean he had been pretty poor when played but cheap back up option for a couple of years.

    Gosh thought Cox was half decent from reports by those who follow the U23's, I wonder if we might see some in coming from elsewhere?

    I don't think so, can't see a reason why the club would keep them on until the end of the season if they have no future at the club. Get rid of them, thank them for their services and lets start getting better players in. It also gives these lads a head start on finding another club. As for CC, maybe the writing was on the wall for him already, he had two chances to impress in the FA cup and he bombed, simple as that.

    What sort of age-range are we talking about? Will they be able to replace them in time to play this season?

    My only knowledge of these players is from what Bob Wilson has posted, and from his many reports I thought that Cameron Coxe was going to be a star of the future. This is very disappointing news, as I was really looking forward to having some home-grown talent in our team. My thoughts are with the young lads who must be feeling very devastated right now.

    In morrisson we trust.
    New broom etc. Start from scratch. Football is not about sentiment.

    Absolutely. Something needs to change. We can't have young pro footballers hanging about the place if they're not even close to contributing and if they had anything about them they wouldn't want to b at the club. Players know when their time is up.

    It doesn't matter in my opinion. They're not good enough. I don't know if they'll be replaced, what it means is that someone else gets a chance or a young player advances into the u23s.

    I get your point but CC would've known, especially after the Carlisle game and some of the other players would've been aware of the situation. They train every day and a player knows if they're developing or not. Look at Ampadu against Spurs, plenty of doubts from certain quarters, even myself, but he came in and showed composure and maturity, he wanted the ball and took responsibility. He has now given everyone concerned something to think about. Could you imagine if he'd had a shitter? Fine lines indeed.

    Haven't we been here before though? New manager comes in, big statement about disappointment in youth not progressing into first team, players get let go, repeat cycle 18 months-3 years later. Not going to argue all our youth players have deserved more of a chance but there is a distinction to be made between not good enough and not fancied by current manger, as well as general disappointment that no matter how many changes are made we seem to lack route to first team for youth prospects.

    About to say the same.

    They'll sign for a lower league club, and in a couple of years we'll see them signing for a prem club for £20M +

    Don't think we've had too many of our youth prospects go onto big things over past 5 years though. Most seem to end up at Barry Town which, although a very decent standard of football these days, is not the Championship or better. I wouldn't be able to point to any as a clear sign club has got it wrong to release players from youth squad but don't think what the club has been doing has been working, the players must have had a better chance of success elsewhere, so yet another change of approach at youth level doesn't fill me with confidence.

    Disappointing as I thought maybe he could make the grade. But in all seriousness, what regrettable attrition have we had from our under 23s In our history? Ramsey and Matondo aside for which we had little say in

    Re: Cameron Coxe released.....

    I'm a bit surprised that we've released Coxe, but bringing in Sanderson on loan wasn't a good sign for his prospects.

    Re: Cameron Coxe released.....

    Maybe Carlisle was his last shot at breaking into the first team.
    It didn’t go well unfortunately.

    Probably happened before although it seems like Morrison and Harris are acting quickly by effectively putting these players out of their misery. They've identified weakness and they've made a decision by paying them up early. What happens now remains to be seen. If any of these players had been performing well then they wouldn't have been released, the manager and the coaches would have seen enough of them to make a decision on their future, they may get one or two wrong, but that's football. I'm not sure of the ages of the players released but i suppose it's between 18 and 21? if so, they really need to be around the first team by now.

    Re: Cameron Coxe released.....

    If these lads are 20/21 then as a mate said ‘if they were that good they would be playing regularly by now’

    Only Coxe has got near out of that lot and unfortunately it didn’t work out.

    Seems harsh and I’d expect it was a tough decision for him, but better for these lads to know sooner rather than later and now the next year or 2 will get the chance to step up and make an impression.

    Good luck to these lads .

    the harsh truth of modern day football such a cut throat business

    with the ever decreasing numbers of young pros failing to make the grade coming through the ranks is there any point in academys these days with the money spent on them ?

    It was harder 20 or 30 years ago, no u23 teams which seems to me like an extension of youth team football and seems to allow clubs and afford young pros more time to develop, although that doesn't seem to be working at our club. It used to be to years YTS, a player was called in half way through the second year and basically told that if they didn't do something special in the final 6 moths of their contract then they were out. If a player made the grade then they were given a pro contract at 18 (in 1990 that was £125 per week) and they then trained with the first team and played for the reserves until they were deemed good enough. No messing about, it was down to the young player to impose himself on the manager and coaching staff. Young players learnt on the job against seasoned Pros.

    Re: Cameron Coxe released.....

    I've not been convinced of the value of a reserve set up. Brentford dont bother and look where they are.
    On the other hand Swansea Town have done well with their Cat 1 status.
    Best of luck to the youngsters released. I suspect a couple of them have clubs lined up already.

    Re: Cameron Coxe released.....

    yeah that was years ago tuerto but modern day clubs spend a small fortune to make a pro football and 99.8% fail

    to me that's not value for money . no fancy academys back then

    to me we should we should regional our talented young players not attaching them to football clubs to all our 4 associations rather trying to make a kid spend years in an academy with no or little chance of making the grade

    It's always been the case. out of my age group only two players made the grade, Damon Searle and Nathan Blake, in the year below it was Nathan Jones, they all went on to have full careers, that was three out of about 35 lads, actually not a bad return. I really think that if a player is good enough and they have decent coaches then they'll make the grade and end up where their ability and character allows them. I think that players can be over coached into something bland and generic.

    What about players that are good enough but don't have the discipline and work ethic to succeed? There must be plenty of them.
