Here's my 2 cents on Kirk. He's still GA. In the fourth year of his contract iirc. He's had a lot of troubles with his foot which has limited how much he plays. He played a little bit at right mid for Sampson and he played a very little bit at right back for Yallop. I'll let other speak for his U-20 career which was much better. People have various opinions on him; I'm probably more negative than most. For me, his game is all kick and chase. He's big and fast (once he gets started) but he doesn't have much in the way of creativity or ball skills. His crossing started out being horrible but he has worked on it and now it's a mix of good and bad. On defense, he's good physically but lacks in awareness. His one really good game came against you guys. I always thought that his ideal position would be a wingback in a 3-5-2. It would allow him to get up and down the field without having any critical responsibilities. It's obviously still a good trade for you since he's GA and you weren't going to use Vanney. Someone said that he thought Vanney was worth a 2nd round pick. That's about where I would put Kirk.
