First out of the Door...

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink

No real surprise, but our first released player is JFH. One poor year at Charlton, and a pretty hefty salary (£35k a week?) meant there was very little chance he would or could be kept on the Championship payroll, even if Charlton and Alan Pardew wanted to.

Gerel thinks he has a couple more years left playing top class football, but that is hard to imagine after the dross he served up at The Valley this year.

Our over-riding memories of Jimmy are not of him scoring Premiership goals for Charlton against former clubs - stroking home at Stamford Bridge and the mis-hit thump at home to Boro - but of a past-it forward with a massive back-side! Jimmy's shorts will go down in the annuls of Valley history as almost as big as Killers flag!

There were rumours that JFH was helping the youngsters at the club; I hope that is true because he did little to help the first team during Premiership matches.

Goodbye Jimmy. You will be a famous name in our Valley hall of fame, but for all the wrong reasons.
