No more additions – Luzon
“This is our squad and we go with this squad.”
Guy Luzon at today’s press conference saying that the club won’t be adding any more players to the squad. Hmm, lessons don’t appeared to have been learnt and I am fearing an incredible amount of deju-vu.
No cover then for an injury prone Chris Solly, no experienced keeper, no centre-half alternatives other than the young Lennon and Sarr and no left sided midfielder options which means Luzon will also have to play someone out of position there. Luzon indicated that we can expect Conor McAleny on the left at Blackburn on Saturday. I hope the Evertonian can impress and get some goals, but the lad’s injury record is very poor.
Cristian Ceballos might end up being the answer out left but he is still out with an ankle injury. Stephen Henderson is still a way off returning as well.
Talking of investment, according to Rick Everitt Greenwich Council are set to approve Roland Duchâtelet’s plans for the Addicks training ground (photo) with the Council’s planning board accepting that the ambitious scheme is required to allow Charlton to secure Category One status giving them the very best chances to compete for and develop players for the future. This is one of the few plans Duchâtelet have been effusive with since he bought the club and he will underwrite the costs.
Finally massive kudos to the Trust for their energy and unyielding investigative hard work in helping force the London Legacy Development Corporation, which is headed by Boris Johnson, to now tell the full facts of West Ham’s sweet deal to rent the Olympic Stadium. Time to get the popcorn open….
