A third midfielder on loan is interesting.

I am guessing either Donnellan or Ferdinand will be sent on loan?

Judging by Soccerbase, in January, he started for Charlton v Swansea, West Brom & Preston and was off the bench v Derby. That is some signing!

I'd assume a month, unless Dowse bloody loves him. He was at Dulwich for a month in November, and it seems like we normally do one month and then extend if they do well and the club is happy to.

I think that’s because he’s the only on that tackles, rash at times but still tackles. Better that than a backwards/sidewise pass with no tracking or commitment. We are trying to win games not worry about cards and getting kit dirty

The statement was i hope he doesnt take Pokus place...My point was only he,s had 10 yellows therefore he is likely to be suspended at some point ergo ..he will need someone to take his place

I think we need a crusty old nasty grafter like Smudge not a fresh 20 year old with very few quality games under his belt.

He may only be 20, but he is a 20 year old that has played in against top opposition (the current league leaders and 3 teams pushing for the POs) in the Championship this season. I agree we could do with another Poku type player, but as they don't seem readily available, lets see what this lad can do before we knock him

Seems he has also been on loan at Dulwich earlier in the season, so I guess Charlton see him as a possible long term player for them, having already used him this season, and want him to get more playing time in a competitive league

I think we need to make more judgements of players before we’ve even seen them play. It’s the best way to judge the quality of a new signing.

I think Poku is more than enough of a "Poku type player" for one team. We need some creativity so bringing in another identical player will not be helpful. I have no idea how this new lad plays but I'd be hoping that he will provide the sort of spark that an Armani Little or Toby Edser gave us last season rather than another hard hitting SOB kind of player that we already have.

Can he play a give and go,if so he may find the second part may not work out as hoped.

Noones asking the important questions though.

What do his stats look like on Football Manager?

11 Passing, 12 Vision. Godfrey's got 12 Tackling, so that basically makes the new lad Zidane.
