Sullay Kaikai on loan

Nope, me neither but I don’t pay an awful lot of interest to Palarse’s reserves. (more)

According to Wikipedia Sulaiman Borbor “Sullay” Kaikai is 22, was born in Southwark and has been at Palace since he was 15. He’s had loan spells at Crawley Town, Cambridge United, Shrewsbury twice and Brentford making 77 league appearances and scoring 20 goals. Not bad.

CARD demands answers

To 10 questions like:

1) Will fan’s liaison and last remaining mouthpiece Richard Murray follow up on Karl Robinson’s claim that he would address supporters this week.
2) Come on, since Kat left what the f is Tom Rubashow doing all day?

5) Will Murray and Keith Peacock make up the numbers on the bench on Saturday?
6) Does the old scrote and the remaining SMT members actually want promotion?

Holmes gone. Money not to be reinvested

As expected Ricky Holmes was unveiled as a Sheffield United player today. The fee was undisclosed bu5 reckoned of be no more than £400,000. Richard Murray, remember hump?, said that due to takeover talks the money will not be reinvested in the team, but Holmes wages will, meaning loans and free agents only.

Don’t ask me how during takeover talks players can be sold but not bought. Best to ask Roland how that works. This could get nastier as Duchatelet flogs the family silver one by one.

30 hours

Flying to Heathrow tonight from JFK. Slightly warmer in the UK, although I saw snow forecast but think it may be oop north. I’m home for just tomorrow, and fly back to Bermuda on Wednesday, so just the 30 hours on English soil and no football. Work and being in Colorado, proper chilly there, from next Saturday the reasons why it is a flying visit.

I orginally began this Blog on Blogger in June 2004. After 1,892 posts and 350,000 visits I switched over to WordPress in August 2010, and today the WordPress stat counter passed the 1,000,000 page views mark, which I admit made me feel very proud.

I’ve written 1,778 posts since moving here in the summer of 2010, clearly less prolific than I was in those early days, but the individual posts get a lot more traffic and that has been increasingly true in recent years.

Making a point..

Pre-game Karl Robinson was again chatting to Addicks outside Gigg Lane and told a fan that Ricky Holmes has been sold from under him by Roland Duchatelet for “debt management.” Afterwards to the press he said that Duchatelet refused to sanction a part exchange with Sheffield United getting Samir Carruthers plus cash for Holmes as Duchatelet just wanted the money.

Duchatelet is taking his last kicks in the stomach of our proud club, which is already doubled up in pain following the Belgian’s 4-year ownership. Just 5 players on the bench today including two long term injuries, an academy player and a goalkeeper.

Holmes to leave

Looks like Roly will get to put more money in his pocket as it seems inevitable now that Ricky Holmes will leave us this transfer window.

Rich Cawley is running an exclusive that Holmes has made it clear that he wants to take the opportunity to go to Sheffield United to finally challenge himself in the Championship. The Blades sit just a point outside of the play-offs and have already invested heavily this window.
