Somen Tchoyi surprise for the derby « Express & Star
Albion boss Roberto Di Matteo could spring a major Black Country derby surprise by fielding Somen Tchoyi as a stand-in striker.I don't know that it's that much of a surprise, but it could be interesting news for fantasy managers. We've been on Tchoyi for a few weeks now, and at 8.21, listed as a middie and home to Wolves... VERY TEMPTING.
The head coach is considering moving the Cameroon international up front, who today gave a vote of confidence to under-fire forward Marc-Antoine Fortune.
Di Matteo looks set to be without leading scorer Peter Odemwingie for Sunday’s clash with Wolves and Tchoyi, who has played as a central striker for previous clubs, could be switched from his normal wide role.
He said: “It’s something we’ve looked at. The only issue is that I haven’t actually had a chance to try it out in pre-season or anywhere else.”
Update: Just to note that this week, I'd rather Tchoyi were listed as a forward. With the likes of Brunt, MGP, Nasri, etc already great bets in midfield, I'm actually having a harder time finding forwards that I'm excited about. Sic semper.
