Ambrose off to Palarse
Nothing official but stories have been developing today
that one of the club's biggest enigmas for many a year, Darren Ambrose will move across South London to Palarse on July 1st once his 4-year contract expires at The Valley.
Incredibly still only 25, Ambrose potentially has another 7-8 years ahead of him in the game, but you have to consider if Ipswich and his old team mate Jim Magilton couldn't drag the best out of him
, who can?
Many Addicks have criticised Ambrose for being everything that is wrong with the modern player. He made a major impact in his debut season with Ipswich Town 7 seasons ago scoring 11 goals in 37 games before making a big money move to Newcastle, signed by Bobby Robson after coming highly recommended but ever since his career has faltered for whatever reason.
Those that know him describe him as affable and compassionate. Others that perhaps don't know him appear to have little time for him. Whatever, the first high profile player out of the door this summer is hardly a surprise, perhaps where he has gone is although I hardly expect him to earn anywhere near what he has done playing for us. Ambrose made 125 appearances and scored 16 goals in 4 seasons.
