We would be mad to loan him as things stand when we are short upfront (on the basis that we've lost Varney and Dickson and Fleetwood look finished at Charlton) and Parky himself has been talking about bringing in another striker this month. However, Gray will probably be on a good Championship wage having been bought for £1.5m and it's possible we could loan him out (I can't see them covering our outlay and buying him) to fund the loan of a stiker we can't afford to buy. A change of scenery might also do him some good in terms of confidence although he doesn't look like he can cut in the Premier League to me, especially playing in a Stoke City side.
Meanwhile, Deon Burton will get the opportunity on Saturday to take some revenge against his former employers and it's high time a Charlton player did this as the goals against us in similar circumstances far outweigh those Charlton players have managed. Burton also owes us a couple of goals and this weekend would be the perfect opportunity to get them, particularly if it fuelled a second successive win and set-us up for the Palace confrontation.
