Decisions, decisions! Who would you send out against the Addicks?

Sami Hyypia

Sami Hyypia

First published in Sport

The debate is hotting up. Who will Sami Hyypia select when he has a fully fit and in-form squad from which to pick?

Well, we are not quite there yet. Kemy Agustien, Solly March and Dale Stephens are still out of action for today’s game at home to Charlton and Kazenga LuaLua (ankle) is a doubt.

So let’s tinker with the question just a little. What team would YOU send out today?

Hyypia made seven changes at Swindon on Tuesday from the XI which kicked off the 2-1 defeat of Bolton.

He could just change all seven back again. After all, the Seagulls were pretty good in that game.

Or he could use one or more of Adrian Colunga, Gary Gardner and Sam Baldock, all of whom have signed in the week since then.

Does Paddy McCourt feature? Does Bruno go back to right-back or stay in the midfield role where has impressed?

What on earth would you do in attack?

Hyypia admits he does not expect to keep all his players happy.

But you don’t have to worry about upsetting people. Just give us your 11s (or 18s) for today.

Unbelievably quite from all the moaners from a week ago!!
Hard to think that we've now got good players in all areas twice over.
Think over the next month well see who Sami prefers,but one thing for
sure is cms had to start.fit good form albeit from 6 games.
But as has been quoted we have got players now that can rotate with each other if needed.
Roll on 3pm.

No it's not!
We will leave the team selection to the man who knows first hand how the players are performing in training, who he thinks can win the game for us.
We will then come back after the game to read opinions of those who where actually at the game.

To be honest, I haven't got a clue who to pick as the starting lineup, the manager is going to have a hard enough job and he's seen them in training so I haven't got a hope.

Baldock and CMS together (neither of them are 'lone rangers'). Good idea, but they'll need plenty of ammunition from the wings - selections so far posted haven't put McCourt or Lualua in - so they'd have to get the full backs to put in perhaps a bit too much. There again, I'd love to see Tex, Colunga and Gardner in midfield, with Holla too! So perhaps we may see a 'wingless' team to start with, then have Lualua or McCourt come on later.

So, my starting line-up -
Stockdale
Calde/Bruno, Dunk, Greer, Bennett;
Holla;
Gardner, Tex, Colunga;
Cms, Baldock.

(pretty much the same as BBB69's, but I'd have McCourt and Lualua on the bench to come on at 60 minutes if we're less than 5 goals up)

UTA!

arc12 says...

With the multitude of options in midfield I would put Bruno back to right back and go with 2 strikers too :

Stockdale
Bruno / Greer / Dunk / Bennett
Teixeira / Crofts / Holla / Gardner
CMC / Baldock

Subs : Ankergren / O'Grady / Colunga / Ince / McCourt / Chicksen / Hughes

That still leaves Calde unaccounted for notwithstanding the injuries to Lua Lua, Stephens, March, and Agustien.

Only change I would make is to put CMS along side Baldock as I don't think he deserves to be dropped.
Subs.: Walton or Ank Hughes Chicksen Colunga Crofts Ince or JFC COG.

I notice that no one has put JFC in their team and yet he seems to be the first name on Sami's team sheet. I therefore expect him to play today although I would prefer otherwise. I would put Paddy McCourt in the team if he is fit having briefly seen some silky touches from him last Tuesday.

I am at a loss as to who to include up front. Although Adrian Colunga is slight of stature and got knocked off the ball a lot on Tuesday, he scored a goal and set up two others and he looks like a real goal poacher. CMS seems to be getting into the sort of form that so impressed Gus. I don't know much about Sam Baldock, but I guess that as we paid money for him he is assured of starting. I'd go with CMS and Adrian though. What a great problem to have!
