    Cork anyone?

    Just wondering if Cork may be started tonight? Your thoughts please.
    His height certainly a benefit, perhaps could be played instead of Cullen who hasn't shone as much this season. I'd be tempted. Relief to have Lyle back.

    Trafford
    Roberts Al Dakhill Beyer Taylor
    Luca Cork Brownhill Zaroury
    Zeki Foster

    Since Luton rely on set pieces to score, my first change would be Muric instead of Trafford, as I think Muric is much more capable at dealing with those set pieces.

    Not for me VC, those 2 are like for like. Which ever keeper he needs more protection from teammates. Due to our lack of height atm we can’t give that. Cork would help there.

    Don’t forget we’ve never seen Muric in the EPL. Plenty of mistakes in level below meant we signed Trafford. No doubt for me which is the better keeper.

    If it was owt to do with me, Jack Cork would still be one of the first names on the team sheet, whoever we're playing, home or away.

    Sadly he doesnít have the legs for this league - players get away from him too easily - heís a decent footballer and has been a decent player for us - just think maybe he should be a fill in last 20 mins man like JBG should as well.

    I feel for Cullen a bit really as his game is possession based ie we need the ball - I donít think cullen will shine until we maybe play an extra man centrally and trust the wide boys to get up and support Foster.

    Berg is similar to Cork a decent footballer but in transition gets lost for pace - spurs and Villa exploited us for that reason ( heís the right build not sure heís quick enough thatís all).

    Sorry to be boring army, but I must ask again, which league are you talking about ? The PL with Spurs, City, Newcastle, United and Villa in, or the one with Forest in, because we've played Forest twice and they haven't seriously bothered us.

    Agree with that Army and I was asking about tonight as opposed to the whole season. May be worth starting with him or Berge for the kitchen sink coming our way for starters?

    I mentioned somewhere else Trafford, Roberts, Beyer, Al-Dakhil and Taylor and making a decent defensive rearguard but I'sd play Cork in front of the back four to break up the other team's possession.

    CORK PATROL is what we need...

    Tbf Sinkov I like Cork but he didnít have the legs in the Premiership last time we were there - if we played the extra man deep in front of back 4 it may work - but the other teams you referred to drove the team bus through our midfield - once past our press.

    As for forest theyíve lost like us to City - Utd - Arsenal but beat Chelsea and drew Brentford as well.

    Reality is at this level of football you get found out and when you do if you dont change why youíre getting found out you lose more than you win.

    I hope like you that against the so called lesser teams we can get some points- I used to have this discussion with my old man every week we went in the Dyche era heíd say itís palace/ Brighton / Brentford today we should get a win - thing is we didnít win as many as Iíd have liked.
