In Sinc. Last Walts.
A bit of activity down at Sparra's Lane today. Trialist Dean Sinclair
signed after impressing in pre-season. Due to his age we have paid Barnet £125,000 in compensation, for whom the midfielder played for the last 3 seasons, scoring a fair number of goals incidentially. As has been said elsewhere Pardew did pluck Reo-Coker from a poor Wimbledon side for £500,000 and Nicky Shorey from Orient for just £25,000, so potentially a nice piece of buisness but hang-on, Pards did sign Jonathan Spector too!
lking of bright young prospects, Simon Walton
left for QPR for £200,000, a loss on the register of £300,000. Well done Mr Dowie.
On the official QPRhahaha site
Walton explained "that he may not always play well, but he will give 100%."
Big and strong in the tackle (perhaps a bit to strong judging by his disciplinary record) we will never know how good he could of been. And for reasons I can't think off, particularly with the pub calling, I'm sort of disappointed it didn't work out for Walton with us.
Although to be fair he was hailed by Les Reed as our saviour, so perhaps that tells us all we need to know!
It's Gillingham tomorrow for the Addicks but not for me as my son and I go to Heathrow for a 2-week holiday in Chicago, returning the day before the Scunthorpe game.
I reckon there is more transfer activity to come for us, both in and out, so Chicago Addick
won't be too far away from an internet connection!
