Jara Reyes set to start after Forest defender is banned

Nottingham Forest defender Greg Halford will miss his side’s last-day tussle with Albion.

Halford has been banned for three games after accepting an FA charge of violent conduct.

His place at right-back is likely to be taken by former Seagulls loanee Gonzalo Jara Reyes.

Halford can play on the right or in central defence and his absence is another blow to a Forest side struggling with a lengthy injury list.

His FA charge arose from an incident in the 4-1 defeat at Bournemouth last Saturday which ended Forest’s play-off hopes.

Jara Reyes came on as a sub against the Cherries and conceded a penalty.

'Forest side struggling with a lengthy injury list'.

Huddersfield recently had injury worries too ahead of our recent away game.
We started the season with plenty of injuries and still are in the mi.
You still have to beat these teams.

Fulam's Boateng is up for grabs, if we don't keep Andrews he might be viable, could have a good influence on Ince.

Koren is a very good player at this level - would be an astute signing. You'd think we'd be a better prospect that Millwall, assuming there is anything in this story at all.

Despite the outcome on Saturday most of us agree it has been a strange season starting back with the Gus debacle, injuries all over the place and in spite of that we have done well.
CMS and Hoskins have been out for nearly all of the season not to mention losing Crofts
Buckleys recurring hamstring ailments together with Orlandi have meant we have had dig in and dig deep.
Up stepped Ince and March and did us proud
Lita and Obika proved to be a waste of time and money but Jesse more than makes up for that
Amex still packing them in, Academy round the corner whats not to be happy about
Anything can happen this weekend but more importently our sustainable future is very bright indeed

And that's what it is all about Hannover, 'or sustainable future.' We were largely forced to bring the young lads in, JFC, Solly and Ince, if others had been available for selection we probably wouldn't have. These lads stepped up, they showed maturity beyond their years, and all this without our new facility. The prospect of new young lads coming thru, sutaining our future, is a very exciting one.

CMS & Hoskins would never get the goals in the championship to get a team up anyway.Not over a season.There just 10 or 15 goals tops strikers.
It is clear Oscar agrees with you Free money.

How long has CMS had on the pitch? 15 or 20 mins

Oscar just does not rate this north european striker,lol, with very little technique.

Come on Tony, back Oscar and buy him Diego Costa or sack him.

Maybe,but the point is we had to carry two injured strikers all season reducing our options.

As I recall when he joined us, he looked the real deal initially, but soon went off the boil.Did Gus move him from right back to midfield once or twice?

Didn't realize Williams was 27, thought he was younger. Koren, at 33 could have a few good years in him at this level.
If a player is in demand, and wage offers are similar, I would expect him to favour a club with a Football Manager. An opportunity for two professionals to discuss the way forward for team and player.
When a director of football or a committee is doing the recruiting, the experience could be the inspirational equivalent of a visit to your accountant.

I commented last week about Shay Given being available, I was in two minds as to whether he might be worth taking on, if TK goes. I am still undecided, at age 38 is Given perhaps we should we looking for a younger keeper, that said, he brings a wealth of experience to the job.

What do you guys think based purely on if TK goes?

Given was an excellent keeper, one of the very best playing in England in the last 15 or so years. He was sold for £3.5m only 3 years ago, and IMO is unlikely to have become markedly worse in that time and may have another couple of decent years in him.

He is apparently well regarded at 'Boro following his recent loan there, so in short, yes, I'd be happy with him.

What do you guys think based purely on if TK goes?[/p][/quote]Given was an excellent keeper, one of the very best playing in England in the last 15 or so years. He was sold for £3.5m only 3 years ago, and IMO is unlikely to have become markedly worse in that time and may have another couple of decent years in him.

I commented last week about Shay Given being available, I was in two minds as to whether he might be worth taking on, if TK goes. I am still undecided, at age 38 is Given perhaps we should we looking for a younger keeper, that said, he brings a wealth of experience to the job.

Wages may be an issue though, but bearing in mind he's not going to get Prem wages unless a Prem or parachute club comes after him, he's going to have to be realistic.

If by chance we miss out on promotion this year, and thinking about Ince, Solly and JFC, three lads that we were just about forced to use, do you think that come next season the club will want to replace them?
Now I don't mean leave them out, but possibly bring in three players so that the young lads become cover rather than starters.

We should have Crofts back for next season and we have Stephens, so JFC might not get too many starts, so that's one. I don't know if we tried to sign Conway but failed, but if we did, and if we try for another, that might mean Solly becomes cover, just as he would had Conway joined us. That leaves just Ince to consider. As it stands right now we don't have a Brighton owned cover for Ince, maybe David is but I think he will be gone, do you think that we should bring in an experienced defensive midfielder and have Ince as cover.

Interesting quote from Burke at last nights Seagulls Over Burwash meeting:

David Burke - "Oscar will flag a player he wants, and provided we have the budget available, I will then make contact with the club to enquire.It is an ongoing process - and we will provide Oscar with all the details and analysis so he can make an informed decision."
