Lynch denied chance to face former club

The Argus: Joel Lynch in action for Huddersfield against Albion last season Joel Lynch in action for Huddersfield against Albion last season

Joel Lynch has been denied the chance to lock horns with Albion.

The former Seagulls defender is suspended for Huddersfield’s visit to The Amex at the weekend.

Eastbourne-born Lynch was sent-off in stoppage time in the Yorkshiremen’s 1-0 home defeat by Reading on Saturday.

Manager Mark Robins has no sympathy for the Wales international centre-half. Robins branded Lynch’s red card as “avoidable”.

Captain and central defender Peter Clarke is already on Huddersfield’s casualty list but Robins could welcome back 12-goal striker James Vaughan.

The former Everton trainee, on target when Town were beaten 4-1 at The Amex last season, was rested from the Reading defeat due to a bruised ankle bone.

Robins said: “At one stage it looked as though it might become a longer-term problem but it hasn’t turned out that way and he may be available for Brighton.”

Huddersfield have slipped to 12th, four places and five points adrift of Albion, after losing their last two games.

Got no time for Joel Lynch, and he's got no time for us. The way he celebrated his late winner against us when at Forest a couple of years ago made me want to be sick on his car.

This next few games is really a big chance to get into top 6 and press on,
Conway has gone back ..... Buckley or lua lua need to step up., 3 points clean sheet ..and a good atmosphere

Never liked ex-players who show contempt to the club that gave them their start ,so i guess he will just have to watch his team lose from the stands !. UTA

Mark Robins is an astute manager and James Vaughan a good striker so we'll need to be on our toes. We don't want a repeat of the Barnsley debacle.
Having said that we should come out on top in this one but we need to approach the game in a positive way like we did against Leicester.
So onwards and upwards with 3 points on Saturday. UTA

Good morning Tug.
Tug I need a favor from you, it concerns your weekend soccer bet, would you please NOT include teams that are above us in the champ div. Last Saturday I sat here wanting you to win money but I also wanted Derby to draw, which would have sunk your bet.
I am sure that you wanting teams that are above us in the table was nothing more than a momentary error, but please, no more errors, ok.

As much as the three points gained at Boro gives us impetus to continue our rise up the table, our loss at home to Barnsley will give some hope to Huddersfield.
The superb performance that brought about the defeat of Leicester, was one that set a new performance bench mark for home matches, our lads must maintain that mark if we are to avoid another blip. I strongly fancy us to win on Saturday but we must not let our guard down, this is not a match to take lightly.
With Conway now gone and Orlandi not yet ready to return, we will look to Buckley, (if fit,) or Kazenga to deliver, maybe both, but deliver they must. I am not convinced that either of these two can cross a ball with the quality that was shown by Conway. Saturday might be the day when we look to David to step up again, if he can do it against Leicester there is no reason why he can't do it against Huddersfield. I guess we might get a surprise and see Ulloa start with Barnes out wide, but I wouldn't hold my breath on that option but you never know.

It sounds like you have been reading the Huddersfield sites as i have ,they think ,if Barnsley can do it ,so can we ,but it`s panto season ,so i am saying NO you cant !.

Losing CC will be a problem ,only if WB or KLL cant play ,both are great lads and know whats at stake ,getting Big Leo back will be massive ,i can already hear the roar . We could get our captain and our keeper back for Saturday ,although Tomasz may be a little early ?.

We have such a supportive attitude at the club under Oscar ,i know what ever side we put out ,will not want a repeat of THAT GAME ,sorry Huddersfield not this week ! . UTA

Tug I am not a fan of the short term loan market, I would like to see some changes made.
If I had my way, every loan would be until the end of the season with a period of three months being the shortest duration of any loan. I would allow loans to be made at an time of the year, but keep them out of the buying window, in other words, if the window is open then loans can't be made.
Conway came to us and proved valuable, and I am sure other players have gone to other clubs and proven to be just as useful, but now Conway goes back to Cardiff, to do what? For the next two or three weeks or so he will probably train with the reserves, have no chance of actually playing and Cardiff will have to pay all his wages, it's a waste.
If a club doesn't have a need of a player for 93 days, chances are they just don't need him period so why stop him from playing. Obviously there are players such as Zaha who might go out on loan and still be wanted by their parent club, but would they not benefit from playing more games than a 93 day deal would allow. If, 'until the end of the season,' loans can be done at the start of the window, then why not after, what is the down side.

The reason why I say that the shortest period of any loan should be three months is that it would stop clubs from borrowing a player for that final push for promotion or to avoid relegation. I wouldn't want to see a good striker borrowed for the last three matches of the season. Have the window for buying and the rest of the season for borrowing but make all loans to the end of the footballing year.

Only the FA could fault your logic ,probably a lot of managers are thinking as you are ,but logic has always been a long way from the FA`s mind. I feel really sorry for Craig,the guy came to us ,with his young family and wanted a fresh start ,we want the same thing ,i cant see Cardiff complaining ,any fees can be taken care of mutually in January . But because of plain and simple stupidity ,this player has to refind his form after a 3 week break from the lads he has been training with regularly ,if we manage to get him back ,and as someone has already said ,only if the Welsh FA can process his paperwork. Again ,this side of Next Christmas ,my hope is we get CC back ASAP and he can get back into his stride quickly . UTA
