“Would rather that Love Island bloke than him” – Charlton fans make their feelings known on new trialist


Charlton are searching for a new finisher up top to replace Lyle Taylor and in this search, we are going to come across some players who don’t exactly suit our profile and after yesterday’s performance, it looks like Courtney Baker-Richardson is not the man for us.

Can you get 32/32 on this Charlton player of the year quiz? I bet you can’t, but feel free to prove me wrong!

Who won player of the year in 2020?

The former Swansea City hasn’t got a prolific career behind him with just 3 goals in 17 game for Swansea City where he was released this season after spending a year on loan at Accrington Stanley.

Would you like Courtney Baker-Richardson at Charlton?



With Stanley a bottom to mid-table side in League One it’s not a good look that he only appeared twice in the whole time he was there, so for us looking to go back up this season I don’t think that the former Kettering and Nuneaton man is not the striker we are looking for.

His performance against Palace was not very good, his touches were not up to standard and nor was his finishing, I just don’t really see much potential in him and I don’t expect he will be on trial with us much longer, but if Bowyer and Gallen are seriously looking at him he will need to make a big improvement to impress them.

The Addicks fans had their say on Twitter about Baker-Richardson and here is what they had to say
