    both played together up top last season, Charlie looks a bit leggy maybe his fitness isn't what it should be, but I don't know why. I think he may go Dykes and Gray. also Chair took a big knock he may be rested, I'd like him to 4-3-3,

    Dykes to start for me, would take Gray with him if starting with 2, then hopefully we can get Uncle out there to get at em and put some balls in but then might be useful to have Charlie to get on the end of em, #### it throw the Kitchen sink at em.

    Personally I dont think there is more speed in Charlie.

    He needs to be on the pitch when their defenders are wary and there are chances as we push in the latter parts of a game.

    He can be a very effective striker for us, but I see him moving towards being the third striker and getting more involved in coaching the other attacking players. The spring in his running just isnt there anymore.

    It could be 2 strikers may start if Chair is still feeling the effects of that follow through tackle by the reading defender Yiadom.

    I know it’s a team game but im sure that Charlie won’t take too kindly to being an impact sub as displayed at Southampton and WBA.

    "But sometimes it is about some players almost sacrificing themselves to take the heat out of the game and then the subs come on.

    “As a centre-forward Charlie Austin can work (defenders) really hard for an hour without really getting a kick and Andre (Gray) or Lyndon (Dykes) then can come on and have more freedom and space.

    “It’s about the squad. you can’t just rely on 11 players, you need your 22.
    Glad to see Albert gets a mention. I've said bringing him on adds a dimension and gives defences something to think about. Charlie knows where to position himself to score. Is there any merit in putting the two together later in the game?

    Agreed.

    I think that due to his age and mobility Chaz should be the impact sub now and Dykes should do the initial leg work. Rather than Chaz coming off after 60mins he should be put on for the last 30mins.

    Austin looks tired and playing him alone up front is not really ideal. I would rather stat with Gray (if Dykes isn't ready), especially if he adds pace to our breakaway attacks.

    Agree Gray /Dykes to start if it’s 2 up top with Austin as impact sub last 20 if needed.
