Oscar Garcia

First published in Sport

Who should Albion  boss Oscar Garcia pick for tonight's big FA Cup tie against Premier League Hull City at the Amex?

He has plenty of options - Solly March or Will Buckley on the wing, Andrea Orlandi or David Lopez in midfield, should star forward Leo Uloa start the game and would you play Rohan Ince with a place in the quarter-finals against Gus Poyet's Sunderland at stake?

Seagulls host play-off rivals Wigan on Saturday so Garcia has lots of decisisons to make.

Join the debate here and have your say. We would love to know what you think.

I personally would put out a strong side. This is too good an opportunity to miss, two very winnable games on the horizon as long as we take the opportunity. For me it's not the fact that it's two winnable games it's the fact that we have been drawn at home in both of them! Just think, a trip to wembley is a distinct possibility and with a bit of fourtune in the draw for semi a place in the final. I'm under no illusions that it's going to be tough but it is doable.

Even getting to the final would give another generation special memories that will never leave - how many times do you hear about 'and smith must score' or our reminded about those games against UTD? The City would go crazy and the new/lasting potential for support would be immense. I wouldn't be surprised if all this wasn't being pointed out to OG, financially as well very important. Again, so far away but we need to try and take advantage of these Home draws.

I feel though that OG will be true to his previous selection policy and Brez will play, and to be honest he's was very accomplish against reading. The big hope for me is that he starts with Ince and Ulloa, those two for me are key, especially Ince who will run through walls for this team no matter who he is up against. It seriously cannot be underestimated just how good a talent this young man is!!

Also in some respects we just might find that we are in fact stronger in certain areas, i.e. Buckers and Kas need minutes so I think they might both start and also although. Yes March has been excellent so either way it positive, just hope OG plays two of these three. Greer was excellent against Leeds and I feel dunk might just be getting his head right finally and could be useful with more speed and ability to play the ball out from back.

Fryatt is the danger man for me, already scored against us this season, I said a bit back I would have liked to have sign him, very underrated talent who goals to game ratio is very good. One more thing if we do manage to get past Hull we may have to face Bridcutt in the next round - that's going to be a difficult one for me. How will people react? Iike many I thought the world of Liam but thought he's refusal to play near the tail end was a very poor one. He could have gone down as a proper legend of this club and instead it's been tainted.

We should have made him play for 5-10 mins against Port Vale and cup tied him like I said at the time. Maybe it was written that we would play Sunerland. You know what I think we actually we will - and I think we have a very good opportunity with these two home games and everyone should create as much noise as possible to try and help create new memories for the next generation of supporters coming through.

Can't bleeding wait. UTA

I would put out our strongest possible side, but I don't think OG will. However, I'm not worried about the likely selection of Brez as, contrary to popular belief, he's a decent keeper. He's not perhaps as good as TK, but then who in this division is?

We absolutely need to play Ince though; the man is a beast and without him the centre of midfield looks a little light-weight. A decent performance tonight in front of the cameras would do his confidence (which isn't exactly lacking) the world of good.

i so hope we field a very strong side. i have already said on here that we have a great chance of progressing and now that the prospect of playing sunderland has become a reality (providing we beat Hull), we have a super super chance of getting to the semis and also what a dream contest, Poyet and Bridcutt back. The house will be full and the atmosphere humming.

but before we get carried away, i thought Hull outplayed us at the Amex last season and are a better team this time round, so they are going to provide really tough opposition.
