Hoskins can help us says Albion boss

Oscar Garcia is pleased to have Will Hoskins back in contention

Oscar Garcia is pleased to have Will Hoskins back in contention

First published in Sport

Albion boss Oscar Garcia believes Will Hoskins can help the play-off push.

But tomorrow's trip to Bolton Wanderers may come too soon for the fit-again striker to make the matchday squad.

Hoskins played a full game in the development team on Monday after a year out with knee damage.

Oscar said: "He has only played one game for 90 minutes. He played some games but less minutes and we are now in an important period but hopefully he can be helpful from now until the end of the season. I know he is a good player."

Craig Mackail-Smith is not back in full training yet with the first team after a groin injury delayed his recovery from long-term Achilles and ankle injuries.

Oscar said: "He's not taking part with us. He's training with the physios and we have to wait."

Good and positive news about Hoskins. Let's hope that's the end of his injury problems - he's had more than enough to last an entire career.

Yet to be convinced about Hoskins, purely because we havent seen enough of him. So I hope he proves to be a fantastic Albion player. The club has shown him a huge amount of loyatly, keeping him on the books despite his injury and his contract expiring. I hope he returns this with some goals and loyalty to Brighton!

Thing is we have not seen him but the likes of Oscar have in his training and getting back to fitness and we have to trust what Oscar says, Oscar doesn't say a lot but I think he is a very astute person especially when it comes to the football technical side of things.

Agreed Phumps, i've seen enough of Hosko to know he has terrific technique/control, good vision, and is a quality finisher. He'll fit in a treat with our way of playing if he can just stay healthy. Fingers crossed for him, he's a good lad too.

Hoskins still has something to prove but I hope he has enough about him to show that he is a player worthy of getting on the park. Against QPR we had Ulloa, Lingard and Buckley all start, I am not sure where Hoskins would fit in if those three are on the park. Hoskins is a striker so I doubt that he would replace JFC who stood in for the missing Stephens, and now Stephens is back JFC will probably go to the bench unless Oscar uses him to replace Andrews, again not a role for Hoskins. My guess is that Hoskins will be on the bench, maybe not this week but soon, and either he or Kaz will come on if Lingard or Buckley come off, and of course that is all dependent on Oscar continuing to start with Ulloa, Lingard and Buckley.

Hosk was pretty useful playing on the left for Bristol R. Used to cut in and scored quite a bit. Strong hold up player too, an area we are lacking in! Look forward to seeing him back. Can he stay fit?

Good chance of a home bench appearance week tomorrow, I would speculate. Never given a chance to show his worth under our former manager, when he was fit. As I have never been a doubter of his ability, I can't wait to see him return.

I quite like the fact tht we have young players that are looking useful for next season should we not get promoted.
Solly, Hoskins, JFC, Walton, Ince, Dunk, Chicksen, March, Buckley, Stephens and Kaz, eleven players all around 25 or younger. Considering our requirement to cut costs next year, and that eight of those I have listed can all be seen as starters, this bodes well for the next two or three seasons. If the club retains all these players it will be interesting to see how Oscar builds on them, what mix of further younger signings he goes for added to some retained or new more experienced players.
When you add the other young lads we have, Goodwin, Monakana and Dickenson, who might also progrss enough to enter Oscar's thoughts, things are looking good for tomorrow.

Very encouraging news indeed.
Let's hope his injury problems are well and truly behind him.
Oscar obviously likes what he's seen in training and his appearances in the DS squad. Will is a quality player and it'll be like signing a new member of the squad.
Can't wait. UTA

Both Monakana and Goodwin look really useful , its an exciting prospect but im still worried about central defence and still think that Ince should be used there as we have lots of midfielders coming through and he has all the attributes for a brilliant centre back ... I for one , cant wait to see Hoskins back , i think he has pace and a sublime first touch ... i just hope he can stay fit to play in support of Ulloa ...

So we are not going up to the prem-league then?Wake up JFK,Dunk,Stephens,Ho

skins,and Kaz prem-league lol.Ok we had a great result against QPR.But we also had a lot of luck.They had about 70% of the game and without TK it would have been a very different result.
Yes we had luck, luck that completely deserted us against Bournemouth, Wigan and several other teams.

With their squad QPR should be above even Leicester, and if they hadn't lost McLaren to Derby they probably would be. Being slightly second best to a team of multi-million pound ex-Premier League players is nothing to be ashamed of.

Solly, Hoskins, JFC, Walton, Ince, Dunk, Chicksen, March, Buckley, Stephens and Kaz, eleven players all around 25 or younger. Considering our requirement to cut costs next year, and that eight of those I have listed can all be seen as starters, this bodes well for the next two or three seasons. If the club retains all these players it will be interesting to see how Oscar builds on them, what mix of further younger signings he goes for added to some retained or new more experienced players. When you add the other young lads we have, Goodwin, Monakana and Dickenson, who might also progrss enough to enter Oscar's thoughts, things are looking good for tomorrow.[/p][/quote]So we are not going up to the prem-league then?Wake up JFK,Dunk,Stephens,Ho skins,and Kaz prem-league lol.Ok we had a great result against QPR.But we also had a lot of luck.They had about 70% of the game and without TK it would have been a very different result.[/p][/quote]Are you on drugs? I didn't mention anything about the QPR match, so don't know why you feel the need to. I said, 'should we not go up,' and then listed the young players that I think will be good for another year in the champ div, perhaps it is you that needs to sober up before reading and then attempting to reply.

Agreed Phumps, i've seen enough of Hosko to know he has terrific technique/control, good vision, and is a quality finisher. He'll fit in a treat with our way of playing if he can just stay healthy. Fingers crossed for him, he's a good lad too.
Thats right he bleeds blue & white don't he lol. Is that when his not lonley and after a move up north??? Its just called contract time you will find.Yes he has some talent many other clubs also saw that years ago.But his also big trouble and thinks his part of a boyband.One game live on tv last season he turned the collar down on his shirt so he would look better on tv to the women.A point that did not go a miss to Poyet and his team mates.
Do we have the return of freeloaders under a new Pseudonym?
Well spotted Old Gull - I didn't catch on at first, but the mention of how good Lewis Dunk was, really flushed him out. He goes on about being 100% right but I recall that he said that Lewis would never play for BHA again, in which case he was 100% wrong! I used to laugh at Freeloaders' posts as they were in some cases quite entertaining and he is clearly much more intelligent than he likes to make out, but where Lewis is concerned he becomes apoplectic and whilst it is true that Lewis is prone to making the odd costly error, he surely does not deserve the lambasting that he receives from FL.
