Strange old day. Still not a sniff of news on a new defender, although this
says that Robert Earnshaw has been linked to us, nay in fact locked on signed by us according to Plymouth manager Ian Holloway - strange indeed, I mean how many strikers do we need? But if Bent goes to Wigan and Heskey to Middlesbrough and if my Auntie was my Uncle....
See that Martin Allen got the sack
today after 3 games. Is this saying more about a power-crazy club chairman or an obstinate and opinionated team manager? "Differences between both parties regarding the direction of the club have led to a breakdown in the relationship."
Jeez, they've played 3 matches, made 14 new signings and just a few hours after poor Clive Clarke
collapsed at half-time as well.
And is Roy Keane really just building a team capable of winning The Championship next season? Kenwyne Jones
, 19 goals in 71 games for Southampton for £6m? Made for the Premiership surely.
Only 50 tickets now remain for Selhurst on Saturday. They are now on sale to Red Card ticket holders, which is about as much use as a paper ashtray to those of us that applied for one 18 months ago and never received it. I understand that any remaining tickets will go on sale to holders of a Tooting & Mitcham pre-season friendly ticket stub who can recite the alphabet backwards whilst drinking a can of Dr Pepper.
Seriously It seems that the police are looking for anyone looking particularly rowdy and making too much noise at the game on Saturday. A dubious looking letter has been allegedly issued to certain Addick supporters from the Met Police ahead of the game. More can be read here
. So try to give it big on Saturday, whilst not getting yourselves into any bother and remember it's only Palarse.
