Thank god, no more Scott Parker rumours
Two former Addicks in the news are Chris Powell and Scott Parker. Sky Sports News
told me this morning that Parker suffered a broken metatarsal bone in his foot following his fleeting substitute's appearance for Chelsea on Saturday and will be out for 3 months. So, no more Scott Parker transfer rumours please.
Someone who has left on much better terms is Chris Powell
and a further bonus for the 1,500 happy Adddicks at Palarse recently was seeing Chrissy do his final 'Valley leap' in the Sky commentary box. This
is what I wrote back in September when he first went to Upton Park on loan. Chris - we're going to miss you too
. Thanks for the memories and I have a feeling that our love affair is not over.
As for new Addicks on the horizon, Curbs has been quoted as saying that he's "not going to spend it (money) just for the sake of it - it would have to be on someone who can improve the team."
). Yawn, yawn.
Back to last night
, my brother and I sat in the East Stand in our parents seats as they could not make it up from Eastbourne and I agree with the Inspector
, it was so quiet. The Covered End got going in the 2nd half and heralded El Camel's goal with a rousing new song but that Danny Murphy chant was awful. No more, something more original please but lets get those El Karkouri and Jerome Thomas ditty's sung around the ground. The rest of you are allowed to get involved other than clapping along to the Red Army
number you know?
