It's almost time to unveil our tiny cox.

Unquestionably a class player but has not played at L2 level for quite a while so should he start? Hopefully he'll play some part on Monday as it'll be my first home game of the year Wink and I'd like to see what he can do.

Start. As we are playing Saturday and Monday it makes sense for some rotation.

He should play in at least one of those games, but I don't see why he can't do both, he'll have obviously been keeping himself fit and has played in non league for Burgess Hill.

He can't play on Saturday as the transfer window won't have opened then. Embarassed

Would be inclined to bring him on for the last 20 mins or so on Monday. He's been playing at Burgess Hill but not for a few weeks now and the pace of that league is nothing compared to League Two. I imagine it'll be a while before he's up to full match fitness.

Throw him on from the start...he should be fit so the longer he plays the sooner he will be at his sharpest..

Good luck to those travelling down to Plymouth. ..Hope you get home in time for the New Year to arrive..

They have put back the start of the New Year for 2017.... To give our supporters a chance to get home in time. Wink

I don't believe he will start but should. If he doesnt hopefully he will come off the bench for some reasonable game time as he mustve achieved match fitness with lots of playing time at Burgess Hill.

As a matter of interest. Who should we drop to accommodate Mr. Cox?

He is a winger who can also play as an attacking midfielder. So it's either Roberts, Clifford or Boldewijn.

My money would be on Clifford.

We don't need three wingers in the team, so play whichever two are in the best form. Which means Enzio on the bench. Or use Roberts as a second striker. We really need one of those in the side. I'd keep Clifford in the team regardless, he's really improved in recent weeks.

The answers were what I was getting at.

Dean Cox plays in a position where we are quite strong. Whoever is left out can feel a little aggrieved...even if it's Dean Cox.

I said to bench Enzio. He's a good winger, just not been in the best form. So yes he will feel annoyed at being dropped, but it will be good to have decent players to bring on when we need to. We don't have too much strength in depth. I imagine that will change in time for next season.

Start him.

Our players have had generally a fair run in the team, with the exception of Roberts through injury.

So why not start Deano and make them alll work for a starting place in the team ?

We're not here to make friends, we're here to aim for promotion, so let's go for it !
