Mooney here for the duration

The Addicks have completed the capture of David Mooney until the end of the season. The striker joined the Addicks on a temporary basis from Reading in October and his loan agreement was extended earlier this month, an arrangement that was due to run out in the middle of February.

However, Mooney will now stay at The Valley until the summer [including the play offs?] after a deal was reached this morning.

'Dave is staying until the end of the season,' Charlton supremo Phil Parkinson told the South London Press. 'He's enjoyed being here and he's done well here. Now he can concentrate on playing and scoring goals for us.'

I was initially impressed with Mooney, especially his pace and commitment, and it looked as if he could finish, but his most recent games have been poor. However, I understand that he is to receive special instruction on the offside rule and a barn door used by some earlier Charlton strikers in training has been brought out of store at Sparrows Lane.

Mooney or McKenzie to start against Tranmere? Discuss.

I like Mooney: he's a lower league Sheringham...sort of! My only real doubt is he's a bit lightweight. Granted he wasn't great on Monday but I'm not ready to give up on him for one terrible miss. At least he sounded determined to get fit and come back to the Addicks after his recent injury. I'd stick with him Saturday, although I'd also play McKenzie, but on the left of midfield.

Agree he was poor on Monday but dickson was worse.I'd stick with mooney on Saturday. If he doesn't perform then bring in the mac for the next game.
