In the cold light of day, relegation still seems the most likely outcome to this season. After playing around with the BBC Championship predictor, the very earliest we could get out of the bottom three would be mid February, and that would need us to win our next five games on the trot, and for other results to go our way. I really can't see that, or anything near it, happening.
We have probably seen the last of Andy Gray in a Charlton shirt, which probably won't upset too many people, and as I wrote in a previous post, I believe that picking him was a habit that Charlton had to break. So, with Dickson getting close to a start, and Fleetwood recalled from Brighton, did we really need another striker? I am puzzled by the signing of Tresor Kandol, but pleased to see him nevertheless.
28-year-old striker, Kandol signed a new deal at Leeds in 2007, which will keep him with the Elland Road club until summer 2011, and last season he was part of the deadly duo, along with Jermaine Beckford, which terrorised third division defences all season. So why then, has he been on loan with Millwall for a large part of this season? He is still scoring goals at that level, having netted 8 in 16 games for the Spanners, and yet he has been loaned straight back out to us. Has he fallen out with the manager or something? No doubt somebody can tell me.
