Just When you Thought Things Were Looking Up!

Oh, no. With all the encouraging news regarding Diawara, Thomas and Pouso returning from injury on the eve of Charlton's most important match for ions we once again are stuck down with terrible news.

Lisbie's out for THREE months. How depressing is that? Will our luck never change? What chance have we got now on Monday. Means we'll have to endure Rommedahl out wide and Darren Bent, minus his cushion, up front. Seems Kevin feel awkwardly and damaged his shoulder in a freak accident in training.

And in keeping with his recent history young Kevin, who at 27 isn't that young any more, it was reported it was funny the way he landed. Sorry, that should read "he landed funny".

It also seems that in my search for players that have had more sub appearances than starts, Young Kev joins the pacy Martin Pringle in the hall of fame with a total started games of 68 and a massive 95 appearances from the bench, all for a total of 19 goals. Well, OK, Kev we do remember the 3 against Liverpool.

Well enough of the bad news. Central defender Diawara played for exactly an hour in a friendly against Arsenal on Tuesday and doubled his time in a Charlton shirt while Uruguayan Omar Pouso played the full 90 minutes. And there's more good news with the return of Jerome Thomas in the same game who also left the field after 60 minutes. Monica showered him with praise with a "He's a lad who can grab you points out of nothing." Well, that's encouraging because points is exactly what we need.

Back with the defence, its only to be hoped that the full hour on the pitch will be enough to see Souleymane Diawara back in the back-four on Monday as he's sorely needed, although he does seem to have blotted his copybook with an own-goal against Arsenal.

Is it me or do we seem we are putting all our faith in players we don't really know. After so many signings during the summer, due to injuries, we still haven't seen the best out of anyone except Scott Carson. And its now that we read that there's a clause in his loan deal where he could (!) go back to Liverpool in January. I think its time to start praying now.
