Clarets International-Bikey Back Soon

Clarets International-Bikey Back Soon

Cameroon lost 3-1 in their African Nations Cup Quarter Final match against Egypt in Benguela, Angola tonight. Cameroon scored first after 26 minutes but Egypt equalised 11 minutes later and the score remained 1-1 at the end of 90 minutes.

Andre Bikey came on from the bench in extra time but the Pharaohs of Egypt scored twice through Mohamed Nagui and Hassan to claim a place in the semi-final against Algeria on Thursday.

The result means Bikey will now head back to the UK and could be in contention for a place in our home game against Chelsea this Saturday.

Will be interesting to see what Laws makes of Bikey and should he play him what position he will get! Duff & Edgar are playing well enough in centre of defence and that should be sustained unless they have a mare against Bolton tomorrow night. Midfield? What do you reckon in or out?

That's good for us. Gives BL chance to evaluate another playing member and enhances his choices. I'm not expressing my opinion of Bikey one way or t'other by saying that though!

I think he'd be my first choice at centre half. Be interesting to see what BL thinks.

A 'free' signing as far as Laws is concerned. I think he'll be out if the hoped for perfomance of the season materialises tomorrow night.

He drives me crazy at times, but I like him, I have thought he has been brilliant one game and then the next game....well you know. But I do like him and would try and find a shirt for him on Saturday, midfield or defence.

Sorry everyone have seen Bikey play several times he gives me the Jitters. He is big and strong, but good players in the premiership tie him in knots he then gets frustrated, because i dont belive he has the footballing ability and skill to get out of difficult situations. he is not a good passer of the ball, we need a clever good footbaling brain with speed and agility at the centre of defence not a big lump

Bikey has a good game when he plays at centre back. He is not a midfielder. He needs a good run of games at centre back. I would play him alongside Duff or Edgar. Although Carlisle is now fit so I'm not sure! I like Carlisle as well! Glad I'm not manager.

Oh and I wouldn't pick Caldwell even if he was fit!

On the basis of 'if you play well you keep your shirt' would it be fair to drop Duff or Edgar. Dont think either of those have done much wrong in the games they have played. I cant work Bikey out - I am never quite sure if he is in control of the situation, or whether he just thinks he is.

Yep, I'd go with Duff and Edgar as things stand. Then it's up to them to play well and the others to be ready and take their chance when it comes. That includes Bikey who should only play at the back - he wouldn't be a midfielder in my team !
