Jack Cork: Has struggled for game time this season

The 24-year-old midfielder has been a key figure for the Saints in recent years - helping them to earn promotion to the Premier League and then consolidate a standing among the elite.

He has, however, slipped down the pecking order this season, with Mauricio Pochettino having dipped into the transfer market to increase competition for places.

Cork has been restricted to just five substitute appearances in the league as a result and concedes that he does not know what the club's plans for him are ahead of the winter transfer window.

He told The Echo: "Obviously, I've been thinking about what part I'm going to play in this squad. I haven't played that much, so it's going to cross anyone's head to think 'what use am I going to be in the squad?'

"I'll see what happens in the next couple of weeks and see if he (Pochettino) uses me. I'm always happy to be part of the squad and play whenever I'm trusted."

Asked about his dealings with Pochettino and any talks which may have offered an indication as to what the future holds for him, Cork added: "Nothing much. I haven't really spoken to him much this season.

"We'll have to review tomorrow and see what happens from there, see what players are fit and if I will be any use in the coming weeks."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
