The Non-League Paper has a story this morning on what is seen as the imminent move of Forest Green Rovers hot-shot Stuart Fleetwood to The Valley. The Welsh non-league international scored 36 goals for the Nailsworth club last season.
Rovers have offered the 22-year-old a new deal, which they have to do if they want to receive a transfer tribunal for a player under the age of 24. However, it appears that Charlton may be prepared to pay £250,000 anyway.
I had thought that our main deficiency was in central midfield rather than up front. I had assumed that Todorov would be going anyway given that Gray was effectively a replacement. So what do we have?:
Varney Earlier in the season I thought that he lacked the polish that reflected his earlier career, but I think that he is improved as the season has gone on. Unfortunately, Pardew has shown a tendency to play him on the wing, but I would start him up front.
Gray Has always looked a good technical player to me, but has finally started to find his scoring boots and could form a good partnership with Varney.
Dickson Showing real promise before his injury, but would presumably start on the bench behind Gray and Varney.
Iwelumo A favourite scapegoat player for many Addicks, despite being leading goal scorer in an admittedly disappointing season. As Pedro45 has pointed out, he either attracts fouls or the referee thinks he is committing a foul when he is being fouled because of his size. Could he be on his way out?
McLeod Well thought of by many Addicks because of his pace. They also feel he was not given a fair go. I felt that he lacked accuracy in front of goal. Could certainly be vulnerable if Fleetwood is coming.
