Gallagher signs for Swansea. Send for recruits

Swansea unveiled Conor Gallagher today on a 6-month loan. Farewell young man and thanks for the memories. The 19-year old was a pleasure to watch and he leaves SE7 with some very complimentary comments. Hopefully he continues his development in South Wales, which appears furthest from his parent club’s mind who mostly it appeared just wanted to pocket a loan fee and receive a larger payment towards his weekly salary, which I am led to believe is higher than any player at Charlton.

Enough Chelsea bashing, they offered us him, we took him and accelerated his career and there was always a chance that the loan would be terminated early. The pitfalls of our previous regime’s reliance on shopping in Lidl and populating the team with loan deals, whereas they should accentuate the team not dominate it.

Conor Gallagher back with Chelsea

Nice. Thanks for nothing Chelsea.

The Blues have recalled Conor Gallagher from his loan and he is back training in Cobham with a view to be loaned out to another club, more than likely Swansea City.

Charlton Athletic 3 Derby County 0

To a man they were outstanding today shoving aside last year’s play-off finalists showing once again that the Addicks can live side by side with anyone in this league.

It’s an absolute joy to watch this side. The work rate and the unconditional desire sends goose bumps down the back of the neck. They were all magnificent, but Darren Pratley was sumptuous at the back playing in between Lockyer and Sarr as Bow moved to a formation we’d never tried before and only worked on since Thursday.

Fulham 2 Charlton Athletic 2

It’s great this division isn’t it? So proud of the boys today who fully deserved their point in front of the cameras in which Scott Minto, Lyle Taylor and Chris Powell also proudly watched on.

Fulham probably have the best roster of players in the league, and in a space of a week we have met three of the biggest promotion contenders, and we have ended it with our heads held high.

Charlton Athletic 1 Leeds United 0

What a great weekend to be an Addick. Leeds United, in almost everyone’s estimation, champions elect packed off back to Yorkshire by this never say die Charlton team, a team of mini-Lee Bowyer’s.

As expected we had to withstand a lot of possession based pressure from Leeds, but a lot of it was in non-threatening areas. Brentford for example carried more goal threat a few weeks back.

Important one

Not a six-pointer or a crucially must-win game but an important one nonetheless as we see how Lee Bowyer’s team can bounce back from last weekend’s first defeat.

Lyle Taylor’s knee injury has been described to similar to one that Patrick Bauer suffered last season. So no surgery but rest, time in a brace and then strengthening and fitness recovery. Bauer was out for 9 weeks. Meanwhile Lyle can dedicate his time to Cancer Research awareness. It’s a great cause, one close to my heart, and the club has dedicated the Derby home game on October 19th. Sadly he won’t be playing.

Charlton Athletic 1 Brentford 0

On Wednesday night, to steal from Lee Bowyer, we battered Forest. Today the battering was on the other foot, but heroic defending, and total commitment saw us gather another 3 points to our early unforeseen total.

8 points above the relegation zone, it’s how I’m looking at it, and another wonderful Valley occasion as second best throughout we showed another side to our game. If Wednesday was about slick passing and movement, today was about blood and guts with the back three of Lockyer, Pearce and Pratley immense and Duracell bunny Lapslie and Purrington leaving no blade of glass unturned.

Charlton Athletic 3 Stoke City 1

I love this team. Lee Bowyer’s team. Well, team’s because this is the second one he has had to build. Bowyer and his coaching team, and not forgetting miracle worker Steve Gallen, have put together a group of players of such energy and gusto. They are almost rewriting the ‘Charlton way’. Look at that picture of Conor Gallagher. He’s only been here just over a week. The personality of this team is to die for. It really is.

Conor Gallagher signs on loan

New signing klaxon!

A name that has been mentioned a fair few times this summer, 19-year old Chelsea central midfielder Conor Gallagher has signed on a season loan.

Gallagher will fill the missing no. 11 shirt, and if we are talking about him next summer as much as we have done Josh Cullen and Krystian Bielik then he would have had a wonderful season. Welcome Conor.
