Watt leaves for Cardiff

Tony Watt is to join Cardiff City on loan: Watt? Watt? Watt?

There have been unconfirmed reports that the Scottish striker is a disruptive influence in the dressing room.

He has also been reluctant to pass to other players when he has the ball, trying to do it all himself.

Nevertheless, the report is something of a shock and reduces Charlton's striker options again. One interpretation is that it is to do with the playing budget and the need to offset Vaz Te's wages.

At least one mystery is solved. Watt was seen with a phrase book at Birmingham on Saturday, but it turned out not to be 'How to speak Brummie' but 'First Steps in Welsh'.

If it's because he's a disruptive influence then it's the right call. Let's not forget why he left Celtic & Standard Liege.
Also remember the first half of the QPR game when he didn't start due to an altercation with Luzon.
You can't have someone (in any team) that doesn't espouse the values of the team. That's SO important for us.
We've had 2 good victories without Watt in the squad and confidence is clearly coming back into the team.
Johnnie Jackson has shown great leadership. He may not have the pace at times but he has the brain and always feels something is missing when he's not involved.
I also like the Fraeye/Euell combination - it gives Euell the freedom to coach and interact with players he wouldn't be able to do as manager.
At the end of the day there's only one thing that counts - results & performance on the pitch.
Get that right and the rest pretty much takes care of itself.
Looking forward to the Ipswich game on Saturday....
