More evidence that Young is on his way out
I have further evidence tonight that Luke Young is trying to engineer himself a move away from The Valley in the summer. A trusted friend heard from the man himself that he intends to quit Charlton in the summer and West Ham are the front-runners to sign him.
The word ambition was again mentioned in dispatches and I wonder how much harm this is doing us in the inner circle of footballers, who with little intelligence to make up their own minds, are looking at Charlton as a bit of a graveyard?
With a serious rebuilding job required in the summer I have grave reservations about the quality of player we will be able to attract. With no young players pushing for a first team place and with around half the squad 30+, the ground and the financial legacy is all good but Darren Bent aside, what about where it really matters? On the pitch.
