Fringe pair set to play again

The Argus: Adam El-Abd is expected to play at Middlesbrough on Saturday Adam El-Abd is expected to play at Middlesbrough on Saturday

Albion fringe pair Peter Brezovan and Adam El-Abd are on course for back-to-back appearances in the defence at Middlesbrough on Saturday.

The Slovakian goalkeeper and Egypt international centre-half are poised to deputise again for the injured Tomasz Kuszczak and captain Gordon Greer.

Kuszczak (strained stomach muscle) and Greer (calf) are not expected to recover in time for the trip to the North-East.

Kuszczak pulled out during the warm-up and Greer hobbled off in the early stages of last Saturday’s 3-1 win against Leicester at The Amex.

The length of their absences is still unclear but neither of them has been able to train.

Andrea Orlandi has also continued to sit out training due to swelling around the knee which required surgery earlier in the season.

Striker Leo Ulloa (foot), sidelined since the start of October, is training but not at “high intensity” according to head coach Oscar Garcia. The Spaniard added: “After his injury you have to be careful.”

Will Buckley (ankle) remains a doubt as well for Albion’s attempt to stretch their unbeaten away run to five games.

Another outing would be particularly poignant for Brezovan. He has not played successive matches since April 2012.

Approaching Christmas and we still have 6 key players out injured, in some cases the faces change, but the number doesn't. If there is anyone at the club that has earned their wags this season it's Oscar. Considering how many times he has had to rethink his game plan, so as to get the best out of those that are fit to play, it's a wonder that we are so high up the table.
Our squad has strength in depth but that does not make life easier for Oscar and the coaches, trying to work out play patterns on the training field must be a nightmare when you are never sure just who is going to be fit enough to make those plays. The fact that El-Abd and Breznovan were able to deputize so easily says a lot about both players, but it also says a lot about Oscar and his staff.

I would hope that those that find it so easy to criticize Oscar for his team selections just stop and think before commenting, no other manager, in our division, has had to cope with the number of injured players over such a long period of time as Oscar has.

Maybe Naylor is a double agent Vegas, feeding disinformation to the Nazis, I mean the Smoggies.
They will also be expecting us to land our team bus in Northallerton the night before the match, but maybe that hotel booking is a deception and we will stay overnight in Bishop Aukland and attack from the north west into Boro.
Many of the subs on our bench are actually cardboard cut outs, there to deceive the enemy about the true strength of our firepower and where it is really located.
Keep Calm and Carry On Vegas.

I would not class AEA as a fringe player. He has been in the matchday squad all season as far as I am aware. Clearly he has not played many minutes, but a fringe player for me is one who is not in the squad regularly. Pedantry apart, I am confident that both Brez and AEA will paly their part in another Brighton away win!

No consistency in reporting injuries, Ulloa was possibly going to feature against Leicester,if only on the bench, now we hear he is only in light training. Orlandi's knee, another trip to the surgeon? Buckley is a real sick note, bless him. CMS, any news would be nice, perhaps even an interview with him, he must be desperate to get back.
But probably the next story will be about Greer's international future on hold now.

Agree with Vegas,we cant heap enough praise on what Oscar has acheived given the injuries we have had from the opening day of the season.

The two lads that jumped in at the eleventh hour against Leicester both played brilliantly,and i`m sure they will do a repeat on Saturday,i read on here the other day,someone (sorry i cant recall who ) was concerned over Brezovans confidence,i shared that concern until the fantastic win against the table toppers,hopefully he will take something from that.

Hi Vegas,
Yes your comments re OG and how he has handled the squad are accurate.
But lets not forget the clubs that have much smaller squads,Burnley (top) and Blackpool to name two and they have done even better considering our depth,so things need to be in perpective.
I find the reporting highly inaccurate at times,one week we are expecting our players back Orlandi and Ulloa and now we don't know again,same with Buckley and no word on CMS at all.
I really dont expect any of the mentioned players back until mid Jan and CMS probably later which may influence the January window.
Hope we see Conway back with the Albion asap.

We always seem to be scraping the barrel, now with another ridiculous injury list it's happening again. More needs to be done about it, sign half a dozen new players in jan and Oscar should be doing better with the ones we have got.

He worries me too. Fantastic commitment and enthusiasm but his behaviour in our penalty area at corners and set pieces beggars belief. It's only a matter of time before a referee gets fed up with it and penalises him with obviously damaging results.

Surely, the more injuries we have had the less Oscar has had to think about team selection or game plan. His choices have been limited and therefore his decisions also. He has just played virtually the only players he has available. He cannot make a silk purse out of a sow's ear, after all.
I am not knocking Oscar but am just not convinced he has demonstrated the wonderful management skill some on here believe, or assume.

I couldn't have put it better myself. Totally agree.
Peter and Adam came in and you wouldn't have known they had hardly played any games this season. Maybe it's "fortunate" TK and GG aren't yet ready to return because Oscar would find it difficult to drop their replacements after such sterling performances.
It says a lot for Oscar's methods and augers well for the rest of the season with competition for places being so hot. Watch us go! UTA

As the picture shows, he's always got his hands close to the attacker and is guilty of getting the knickname "TUG". But I admire the way he always gives 100% for the team which is inspirational.

Alfie T there was an article either yesterday or the day before in the Argus about CMS saying he wouldn't know who to go to in order to report any potential match fixing he became aware of ! I am surprised there isn't a standard procedure provided by the FA. Whilst it was good to see that he is 'around' I agree it would be better still to hear how his recovery is progressing.
With regards to the other injured players I hope Buckley will be fit for the next Home game given Conway won't be available (really hope we get Conway back since he offers something the other wingers don't). I am not really expecting to see Ulloa back this side of Christmas and think the club are right not to rush his return. On the other hand I hope GG and Kuscszak are back soon even though both Brezovan and El-Abd did well on Saturday.
Perhaps one day this season Oscar might have a full squad to select from (Hoskins excepted). Talking of long term injuries I note that Dexter Blackstock whom we almost signed on Loan in November is now out for the season. Naturally one hopes he has a successful recovery.

If you read my comment again you will see that I refer to the difficulty in, 'working out play patterns.
Training ground free kick and corner routines, take a link out of the chain and another has to be put in. Oscar might lose the services of one player and that loss might affect two or three other simply because they have formed an understanding, much as our back five have.
So yes, it has not been easy.

I think he is a good player; a little slow maybe but gives strikers a hard time. Yes his nature sometimes means the odd free kick or yellow card but he does move walls.

Good grief, if all he's been up to is stuffing his face he won't be much use when he comes back, he'd better do an awful lot more running methinks.

Too many fans on here have only seen Adam at the Amex and think he is about to give away a penalty or get a red card at any moment. He has made nearly 300 appearances, received only 2 red cards and given away less than a handful of penalties. Stats any centre back would be pleased with. He has a whole hearted appoach, sometimes operates at the fringes of what is acceptable but is very controlled.

He's a central defender, and a totally committed one, if he wasn't giving away the occasional free kick, and getting a yellow card now and again he wouldn't be anywhere near as effective as he is. Admittedly, he's a bit rough around the edges but as our ex boss said, "He's the best defender in the club"

He has his own style and winding up the opposition is all part of his game, the fair but crunching tackle right in front of the West stand on Saturday was Adam at his best, we are lucky to have him as cover. However, he is a central defender and nothing more, please don't play him at full back or in midfield.

I think the spelling might have something to do with the lack of characters allowed in each tweet.

Talking of which, i think CMS and Ulloa have got used to being paid for doing nowt and should have been availble for selection before now.

Talking of which whatever happened to Freeloaders, i miss him.

Far too much getting paid for doing nowt for my liking, a roast dinner is not what a finely tuned athlete should be filling up on, too fatty for a start. Are there no sports nutritionists at the Albion to correct him? I always thought he looked a bit slow lumbering around the pitch like a lost hippo and now I know why. We're supposed to be a modern club not a pub team who tank up on 12 pints and a curry the night before, it might have been acceptable when we were at the goldstone and withdean, but not now.

Back in the old days (early internet, fidonet, cix etc) trolling was a proper art form. You had to come across as a genuine member of the community, just dangle enough bait to get someone to bite and then you would retreat and enjoy from a distance as it all kicked off. The two or three on here are so obvious, clumsy and lacking in finesse and subtlety it makes me miss the artistry of yore.

Totally agree brigtonup,

We do make a great deal of effort to interest our fans, particularly on a match day, but recently they have been difficult to please. Some shocking displays on the pitch clearly hasn't helped and it therefore does not surprise me one bit that some fans seek solace and excitement on other clubs chat rooms. This season has been particularly difficult due to the poor run of results and the fans still not being able to recognise the multitude of new players I have inherited. Unfortunately, at Selhurst last Saturday, my first team was booed by the home fans when they were mistaken for the away team arriving at the stadium. For their own safety they now have to wear red and blue armbands on entering and leaving Selhurst.

Ha Ha. I know I am always complaining and I am sorry to do another negative post but I’ve got to agree. The standard of trolling at the moment is quite abysmal. It’s just not like the old days. I think this site needs to attract a beta class of troll. All this lot are doing, is giving us a bloody good laugh.

The trolls on here may be clumsy and obvious, but there are still plenty of people who take the bait every time - and give the thumbs down to every comment from thewithdeanyears ,,ringtone etc. Where there are comments, chat etc there will be trolls - fact of life.

Back to the topic - AEA is very good at getting in blocks on shots, and for his height is good in the air and strong on the ball. I do worry about his antics when defending set pieces, but his red and yellow card count is not at all bad for a defender. I worry more about Brez, but he looked very solid on Saturday.

CMS's recovery has been reported on a couple of times. He is expected to be back in contention in January. That has been the case for a while now and I haven't heard any different. If our friends at the Argus reported on CMS in every article, we would all be moaning about repetition.

Seems you know how to be a real troll.

Happy to accept advise from a true master
I have never trolled (it's the last act of the sad and lonely passive-aggressive who fails to gain traditional acceptance), but I witnessed some of the very best. You cannot hold a candle to them, t0ssers though they all were.

You are failing in the most basic task of a troll, and that is to be convincing. You try too hard and Thewithdeanyears doesn't even a clue. No-one believes you to be Albion supporters so your laughable attempts at foisting 'the truth' on us is generally ignored with a wry grin and a shake of the head. Bless.
