Double injury boost for Albion

The Argus: Matt Upson could be back for his 42nd Championship appearance of the season against Blackpool Matt Upson could be back for his 42nd Championship appearance of the season against Blackpool

Albion pair Matt Upson and Will Buckley are back in contention for Blackpool's visit to the Amex tomorrow.

Both took part in a light training session today and boss Oscar Garcia will make a late decision on their involvement.

A combination of knee, hip and ankle niggles forced former England centre-half Upson to miss only his second Championship game of the season in Friday's 1-1 draw at Huddersfield.

Winger Buckley has not featured since a recurrence of hamstring trouble in the home defeat by Middlesbrough three weeks ago.

Andrea Orlandi is also close to returning from a persistent thigh problem, although the Blackpool match will come too soon for the Spanish midfielder.

I think it will be very hard for Oscar to select Buckley, maybe he will want to hold him back just to be sure that he can go the distance should we make the play-offs. Likewise with Upson, perhaps it might be better to give him one more week off, have him ready for the Yeovil match, both on the bench at best is my thinking and maybe not even that. Light training after an injury is not full training in prep for a crucial match.

I thought LuaLua had a dreadful game Friday, the fastest he moved was when he left the pitch to be substituted. But he's still a potential matchwinner and should be on the bench. A fit Orlandi will be more productive than March I think, so Solly on the bench, and JFC misses out. As for the defence, Dunk was erratic on Friday to say the least, and Upson gets my vote every time for that spot. And I'd like to start CMS with Leo and see what they can do together.

After watching Fri game I would leave out Dunk and Andrews. TK worries me at the moment as I believe he does not have right mindset yet he is the best keeper we have. OG job is a hard one tomorrow, if he were to ask me and im expecting a call from him later! ;) I will tell him...Casper, Bruno Greer Upson Ward, Lingard Ince CMS March KLL, Ullo. 451 . with CMS behind ULLOA.
I know this wont be his prefered choice but im sure i can talk him round!!! ;)

With the squad's destiny back in their own hands I don't see the need to make too many changes to who Oscar has sent out in the last three matches. If Upson is FULLY fit then yeah start him, but we shouldn't risk him if he isn't, we will need him at Yoevil as I think that will be a tough match, and winning that one might ease the pressure on us when we go to Forest.
Huddersfield may have wanted 3 points but getting one was enough for them, Blackpool MUST get 3 points, the two matches will play out very differently. Huddersfield took an early lead and were certain for a much needed point if they stopped us scoring twice. If Blackpool were to take the lead early on they would have to drive on for a second goal, they can't afford to take just a point.

We will be at home, a great crowd and a great playing surface, both sides looking for 3 points, and both not really interested in just one point, everything points to an open and attacking game plan from both sides. For these reasons I just don't see Oscar feeling the need to tinker, unless forced to by injuries.

Are we forever to be blighted by the world's most obvious trolls? I remember back in the earlyish 90s when trolling was a proper skill and its practitioners almost artists.

Ignoring them eliminates the exchanges of dialogue which appear in boxes of ever increasing size on many threads. I believe that many more supporters would visit the site if these were not a regular feature. I have certainly avoided it myself for that reason on many occasions. Those are the occasions when the Wind-Up Merchants have won, and they couldn't do it without your help.

It tends to happen when a thread has already died, as Freeloaders generally comes back in the small hours to add his vitriol. If I can get just one of them to occasionally join in a genuine discussion, then surely that's worth some effort? I managed it with Freeloaders a few weeks ago and it was, for a couple of hours, quite nice.

Who would you leave out of the 18?
I thought LuaLua had a dreadful game Friday, the fastest he moved was when he left the pitch to be substituted. But he's still a potential matchwinner and should be on the bench. A fit Orlandi will be more productive than March I think, so Solly on the bench, and JFC misses out. As for the defence, Dunk was erratic on Friday to say the least, and Upson gets my vote every time for that spot. And I'd like to start CMS with Leo and see what they can do together.
Top post from a real fan that was really there.Dunk was erratic on Friday to say the least.Sorry my friend half his gangster family run this site,or its a Brighton thing and they all love his boyband looks lol.They can never name one other top club after him for some reason or why Hull never put in a bid after his wonderful performance against them lol?
