The primary silver lining to the cloud that has been the 13/14 season for Charlton has been the promise shown by our young squad members. They have all proved themselves when called upon and seized the opportunities given to them as a consequence of the need to rotate the squad.

In this article, I’ll be analysing each of the members who have contributed in different ways this season and what they offer for the future of our great club.

Understandably, before we were finally greeted with a frenzy of goals at the end of the season, many Charlton fans were left wondering why our ‘Polish starlet’ from De Graafschap was not being given a chance for the club. After banging in goals for his former club, it did seem like a bizarre decision.

Well, from what I gather, he is similar to Reza in that he has not quite got used to the intensity and ferocity of the Championship. As Mark Gower pointed out when he arrived at the club from Swansea, the Championship is arguably a tougher league than the Premier League. It is generally a raw gritty style of football with no one team easily the best (although Leicester fans would probably have something to say about that). It is unpredictable and claustrophobic, with every team fighting tooth and nail to win.

So it is perhaps understandable that the likes of Polish Pete, Koc and Nego have been given little or no playing time. They are all young and show promise but they have to be given time to adjust to a very tough league before they can show us what they can really do.

Give it a few years and I’m confident they’ll get there.
