It has to be said this transfer window has been very complicated so far as the new owners have come in and tried to cement their position as tough nuts to crack in the league as they stay firm on sensible spending, which is all well and good, but the squad is depleted and in need of reinforcements.
We have been linked with so many players this transfer window such as Ivan Toney, Marcus Maddison and Harlee Dean just to name a few, but it’s the money that is still the problem in acquiring these targets.
I get that Roland has probably left a lot of mess behind for ESI to clean up in financial terms of getting the clubs head back above the water, but with Maddison he wanted another grand a week which probably was a grand over the sustainable amount that Matt Southall has been talking about.
We won’t go above and beyond at the start at least, we just need to survive this season which I’m very confident that we will despite winning once in 18 games, but we do need the help and I think Maddison will play a pivotal role in our survival if we can secure his signature which by the looks of things could go either way.
I’m not saying let’s just throw money around, but sometimes I think there are deals that are worth paying the extra few quid for and Maddison is one of them.
Charlton fans took to Twitter to voice their opinion on the players we have been linked with and the one player they would like out of those who have been rumoured and here is what you all had to say!
Would you like Marcus Maddison at Charlton?
