Four off to horizons new

Always sad to see players get released although Waggy was very upbeat about his imminent departure when I spoke to him last week. He felt, rightly so in my opinion, that being a free agent will make him more appealable to clubs and he is hoping for another crack at The Championship. His attitude over the years since his debut in 2008 has been exemplary and he deserves the opportunity to make a good career for himself and I know all Addicks wish him every success.

Call for Clarke

With Ricardo Fuller out for an undetermined amount of time, the name of Leon Clarke has been floated again amongst Addicks. Mind you it is probably the first time the names of Fuller and Clarke have been mentioned in the same sentence.

Clarke has scored close to 20 goals on loan at Chesterfield, Swindon and Scunthorpe in about a year but Swindon fans yesterday made it clear their feelings to their ex-player who returned to the County Ground for the first time and during his stay in SE7 Addicks were none too impressed either.

Ipswich Town 1 Charlton Athletic 2

Too early for 6 pointers, but that was a big win yesterday at Portman Road. Ipswich are the division’s longest servants but under Paul Jewell they look like exiting through the bottom, and patience seems to be running a little thin up in Suffolk.

Powell made a couple of key changes and importantly the skipper for the first time this season was able to imbue himself on a game playing in the centre of the midfield. Kerkar shined on the left and Green again impressed on the other side. However, my mate at the game raved about Michael Morrison as man of the match.

Charlton Athletic 2 Leicester City 1

The Valley for night games has been a bit of a drag in recent years, but tonight back in the Championship playing a team with real Premier League intentions the glorious old stadium was rocking to the tune of proud Addicks willing and cheering their team onto a fantastic victory under the lights.

I think that we saw the real the difference between League One and The Championship tonight. Leicester are a good team, with good players and a very strong bench. Yet our strikers, on the night were more clinical, including one man, super Yann Kermorgant. I would have given anything to see the Breton clasp his finger to his lips after he scored.
