New keeper in

Charlton are involved in talks to sign keeper Ben Hamer from Reading: Hamer

Should this signing go ahead, it must cast doubt on the future of Rob Elliot. Some Addicks who were at the Millwall game thought that he was positioning was not too good for the two free kicks that led to goals

Hamer came up through the youth academy at Reading. He is a fluent German speaker, a talent likely to be wasted at Charlton: Wikipedia

A Bee has e-mailed me to say that he was a great keeper for Brentford and a fans' favourite.

Apparently Hull were also interested so we did well to get him.

The Sky report also refers to the possible signing of another striker, but I have heard reports linking us to another full back, Andy Hughes from Scunthope. Scunthorpe have confirmed that there has been an enquiry about the 33-year old who has only spent six months at the club after joining them from Leeds.

Robbie Elliott only has a year left on his contract.
Although Chris Powell has made noises about getting him to sign a contract extension, maybe Elliott has refused?
Also, Newcastle were sniffing around earlier in pre-season, so maybe something has come of that.
I don't think he's as good as Sullivan anyway...
