More player news....

Following Izale McLeod's loan move to Millwall - let's hope he notches a couple and thereby secures a permanent move - unsettled Chris Dickson looks next to move out. He is being linked with the Gills who are keen assuming " a higher division club" doesn't get him first. As the player whose home shirt I wasted sponsorship money on this season, I will be disappointed to see him go as I don't believe he's been given a fair crack of the whip.

As two go, we are giving a further trial to Ishmel Demontagnac and Ulises de la Cruz. Both have Premier League sounding names but the simialrlity probably ends there as they are surplus to requirement at previous clubs and both are without contracts.

The Club's email Bulletin teases us by saying that Martyn Waghorn has not yet returned to Sunderland folliwng the expiry of his initial month's loan but then helpfully goes on to point out that we have until Friday to take an option on an extension. For me, he's been a big disappointment. Whilst others have come on loan to rehabilitate themselves or put themselves in the shop window, Waghorn looks to have come here to lose weight and been unsuccessful at that. Ok, he's a thick-set sort of bloke, but he's carrying bulk that makes him look a good yard slower than when he played here in the Youth Cup earlier in 2008 for Sunderland.

And finally, it's Wednesday morning and we're still in the F A Cup!

Thanks Dave, I'll take that as a win then - that's 2 from 3 games - we're on a roll :-)

Good forward planning by Charlton. Send McLeod off to Millwall and Dickson to Gillingham and they will be all set up to nail goals against us next season.
