There has been much talk going around about Blackpool’s Armand Gnanduillet as the French striker has scored 12 goals in this last 22 appearances for The Tangerines sparking many clubs to be after the 6 foot 4 target man.

Yesterday it was reported that Charlton have pulled out of the deal after agreeing £325k in the summer, but six months down the line Blackpool want £500k more than originally planned due to his surge in goals this season, but he has just six months left to run on his contract, so were Charlton right to cancel this deal?

When new owners come in your always going to get clubs trying to test the waters with the structure at the club, Blackpool were right to ask for more I’m not going to deny that as Gnanduillet is a completely different player to what he was last season, but Charlton were also right to pull out of the deal, which now makes us look slightly harder to deal with in the transfer window which is obviously a good thing.

The money will not be spent left right and centre and we can see that now because if ESI were reckless we would have Gnanduillet in the door right now and it might not have worked out, obviously he is not worth £825k to Bowyer, Gallen or Southall.

On Twitter we asked the fans what they think of the decision made by Charlton and here is what you all had to say.

  • Yes can see we must not be mugged off and it appears that 2 targets have now been curtailed and yes the clubs know that we have been taken over and think CAFC are flush with funds. The danger on the other hand is that we might be lucky to get anyone in and yes this “once we get our injured players blah blah blah are back we will get points and climb that climb that table”
    There is no guarantee of this and many have broken down injured straight away and yes the decent ones get targetted and all clubs do this, including CAFC>
    Worrying about getting appropriate players in and the right quality but the latter costs a lot usually!!!
