Selection Problems Looming for Pards

Contrary to popular opinion, it appears that Cory Gibbs remains with the club and participated for 90 minutes in a behind doors match with Palace on Tuesday. Gibbs must be a record holder in having been selected, allegedly by Curbs and then not playing under 3 managers. He's still up for The Gary Poole award for injured absence, but you never know he could eventually make a debut for the club. The good news is that we are easing him back and I don't expect to see him in 1st team action for at least a month and maybe 4 or more run outs. For anyone who has absolutely no idea about Gibb his CAFC profile says that he is a left sided defender or midfielder. It states that he was injured in the season before he joined us, so this is like two years with relatively little action, so it will be interesting to see if he has the ability to dislodge Thatcher and Powell from Left Back.

Good news that is likely to have more immediate rewards is that Luke Varney played the full 90 minutes and there has been no reports of further injury. Sankofa, finally had a run at the right back role with Moo2 out, but picked up his injury and one wonders where his future lies, I would rather have Moo2 and Mills fighting for that place than Moo2 and Sankofa - the third tier of football beckons either on loan or transfer.

Even with the departure of both Bents, Varney's return to health poses a problem of the good kind to Pards. Both Iwulemo and Todorov have been in good form, so do you drop one of them or leave the golden boy 0n the bench (When you play 4-4-2)?

By the way, anyone seen Christensen? At least Rom was a Dane that only went missing on the pitch.

Evening. Christensen played at Aldershot pre-season and looked quite handy. He let himself down in the boot department however, wearing items of different colours. That could be harsh on him, he could be from a poor family of course.

Saw Christensen in the Welling game - he looked good, although he a bit greedy - perhaps understandable as he was trying to impress.
