Perry backs Powell

Chris Powell's former team mate Chris Perry backs the new manager in an interview in The League Paper today. Perry, who made 84 appearances for the Addicks between 2003 and 2006, believes that Powell can take the Addicks into the Championship.

'He's pretty much made for that job,' said Perry. 'It's a shame what has happened with the club since I left but they've got the right man now. He's served his apprenticeship and deserves to do well.'

The 38-year old defender has resigned himself to retirement after he left Southampton last summer and has failed to find another club. He has his eyes on an eventual management role, noting 'coaching is definitely something that appeals to me.'

Perry served our club well and was effective in his last appearance against us at the Valley. Indeed, he looked at least as effective as our pairing on the day.
I'm syrpised he cannot find a short terms contract (i.e. a year at least) at another club in Division one or below.

And just as small as Semedo, was in our defence when we beat chelsea 4-2, excellent defender in his day a good spot by Curbishley.

Still think might be worth a try with semedo in defence if the others contnue to fail and as Chris Perry showed height isn't everything..
