About Me

Old Coulsdon, United Kingdom
An acquired refugee from the days of exile at Selhurst Park, my first game being a dreary 1-1 draw with Millwall. I followed the team back to The Valley, and have now been with them for over twenty years. You will find me in the Rose of Denmark or in the Lower West. Follow me on Twitter @DeepestDarkest1

Give Me Strength

So Benni McCarthy is set for a loan deal with Charlton?


I hope that as with everything else the Mail produces, this is just idle gossip, but I suspect it isn't. The need for a "large" target man is one thing, and there are sources suggesting that Powell was after such a creature, but does Piggybank spring to anyones mind here?

It could of course be part of a cunning plan, and that Sir Chris actually sees the way forward as converting him to a central defender. After all, why look for a mobile, fast centre back when McCarthy should certainly be able to cover most of the goalmouth just by standing still.

  1. Indeed, the expression "parking the bus" springs to mind. McCarthy, the one-man-wall. If he failed to keep to his fitness regimes at WHU, why would we want him? We might not be Premier League but our training and fitness still needs to be first class.
