News that Jason Euell has signed a one year deal at the Valley hardly comes as a surprise following several weeks of training with us and positive noises from both player and manager. Jason made his Charlton-mark in the top flight where he plundered 30-odd goals in little over 130 appearances.

At 34 and having managed only a dozen goals since he left us, I am not expecting much. My guess is that he will get to play in the moody cup competitions and appear from the bench on occasions. I assume he's not on big League One money because he may struggle to provide value-for-money. Having said that, he may be a positive influence around the club and hopefully Benson and Hayes will be kept on their toes. I suspect that our recruitment drive is now over and that we will now limit our market activity to loan dealings as and when necessary.


  1. Great summary of the likely situation. Does this mean there is no prospect of signing Grzegorz Rasiak?

  2. Anonymous - I would be surprised personally although Rasiak would add some aerial threat as an option.

  3. Question resolved it seems!! Your guess was right. I think I'm a little disappointed. Whilst Euell might offer bits and pieces I'd hoped that if fit and "Up for it" Rasiak might be a real asset. Shame.


Go on, you know you want to....
