We must start Julian Borner on Sunday

Surely the disappointment of Stoke has opened the door for Borner to get into the starting the 11. 
 

His quality is undeniable. He helped turned the Bristol City game in our favour. 
 

Don’t care who is dropped - he needs to start on Sunday. 

As quoted in another thread, agree.

We were bullied at both ends of the pitch yesterday. Went into the game hoping Fox was fit to keep Iorfa at CB rather than switching him to full back but just shows how things can pan out with Iorfa himself having a rough old 90 mins!

Yes I agree. Also we need 6 points from our next 2 games. Anything less will be a poor return especially after yesterday shambolic performance and result.

Tom Lees has had it and Borner isn't good enough. Both players continually drift out of position leaving the excellent Iorfa to cover. Without a player of his calibre we wouldn't be where we are. 

When the window opens we desperately need a solid left sided CB.

Palmer out, Iorfa to RB. Hopefully Fletcher will start and Dave will be dropped. 


Exactly this plus Hutch starting.

Would consider dropping Reach for Murphy too.

Are you seriously suggesting we move iorfa to rb? He has to cover for the inept Lees and Borner. We can't afford to move iorfa. 

Iorfa is surely one of the best CB in the division now. Sadly he's got two duds in Lees and Borner that he's always covering for

Trying too hard.

 

Use less bait.

We'll have to wait and see, but unless someone leaves, I can't imagine that another centre-back will be anywhere near the top of Monk's shopping list for the January window.

 

Börner and Lees are more than good enough and have both been vital parts of the team which has the third best defensive record in the division at this point in the season.

Gregory made Iorfa look an idiot yesterday 

 

Beat him to the ball every time - I’m not sure how with Iorfas pace and height

Palmer needs to drop out and Iorfa needs to move to RB.

 

Thats a couple of dodgy games in the last few weeks from Iorfa

Iorfa switched Réda Johnson mode on yesterday. Was woeful.

Iorfa was poor yesterday but he’s allowed 1 bad game surely? Not keen on shoving him to right back, id have iorfa and borner centre backs

Agreed. I think a cool head in defence, and a defender who can actually pass would have helped yesterday.

As a a pairing think Borner and Iorfa look our best pair. Don't think Iorfa has looked as good since Borner got injured and he started to partner Tom Lees.

 

Really harsh on Lees as he has played well since he came back but you have to go with the sum of the parts.

It was Lees covering Big Doms arris yesterday. Not vice versa. 

 

Borner inept? He's he's probably the one defender our of all of rhem that rarely puts a foot wrong.
