Could Jackson have been used more?

This article argues that more use could have been made of Johnnie Jackson in Charlton's relegation battle: Jacko

Some fans think that Jackson is too slow, but there is an argument for using him as a sub who can pop up and score a goal.

However, really it was Karel Fraeye's stewardship that got us relegated and nothing done in the recent past would have made that much difference.

Arguably pace is not Jacko's best feature. Those who can remember Wim Van Hanagem of Holland in the 1970's will recall that he was not the quickest but he had good timing and perception. Daglish was slower than Keegan but compensated with an exceptional ability to read the game and be in the right place at the right time. An injury free Jackson still has leadership qualities and can galvanise those around him. Jacko also has an ability to "ghost in"unmarked to score some vital goals. A good club Morrison and Kermogant (ouch!).
