Grant Basey

I noticed that Grant Basey has been appointed as Cray Wanderers interim manager.

It wasn’t posted, or at least I never saw it that Basey had left The Valley where he was first team development coach under Nigel Adkins and Lee Bowyer.

Leeds United 4 Charlton Athletic 0

It’s hard to write this. Hard to take, and even harder to look into our future now.

Of course we shouldn’t have been here. Having to go to the league’s best team needing to win. We’d already blown it. When Birmingham’s scored last week I knew that. Congratulations to Luton and Barnsley. They properly stepped up when they had too, and commiserations to Wigan and their supporters. How about that bottom three f*ucked over by shysters eh?

EFL, you must be proud, and I hope Lyle Taylor and Chris Solly sleep well tonight.

Grant Basey steps up

“Great stuff. This is my Charlton” fellow Addick @HungryTed called out following the announcement of Grant Basey’s promotion from Kit Manager to First Team Development Coach today.

It’s hard not to agree with him, and indeed another sign that Roland Duchatelet is finally listening to advice given to him, a trait he has rarely shown. There’s been a long-needed liaison between the first team and the U23’s, as young men’s careers can easily make or break at this point. Steve Avory has championed this kind of mentoring and developmental role for a long time, and if anyone should know what level of influence and kinship is required at this stage of a player’s career it is Steve.

Mavididi out for 8 weeks

That appears to be a guesstimate with Karl Robinson on Thursday saying that the loanee could make a quicker recovery, or possibly that his hamstring tendon could keep him out longer than 8 weeks.

It’s a big blow as again Mavididi has looked impressive since he re-arrived back in SE7 after leaving us injured last season. This time at least it looks as if he will be back for the season’s run in.
