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

Case For The Defence

Palace have Sainsburys, Charlton have Morrison. Another piece of the jigsaw slotted in today, as the Sheffield Wednesday centre back passed Jose Semedo on the M1, and signed a three year deal. I don't remember a summer of transfer activity at The Valley quite as intensive as this one, but the rebuilding work continues at breakneck speed.

With news of Francis imminent departure as well, it has been quite a week. As regular readers of this blog know, I have never been a fan of either Francis or McCormack, but if both do go, (McCormack is being linked with Dagenham & Redbridge), then I genuinely wish them well. For whatever reason, last season is one that they, and us will want to forget. So let's just do that, and move on. For now though, both remain as Charlton players, hence their continued presence in the squad list below.

Looking to the future, I have also updated the status of Harriott and Osborne to reflect the two year deals they signed earlier this week.
