Oh Danny Boy - The Pards, The Pards is calling....

It's been eight long years, but it seems that Danny Mills may be returning to The Valley to fill the right back gap left by Yassin Moutaouakil's injury.

Mills was a firm favourite during his previous spell with the club, but decided he wanted Premiership footbal when Charlton were relegated in May 1999. He joined Leeds for £4million, and that money was put to good use by Alan Curbishley as Charlton bounced back to the top flight as Champions.

Mills subsequently played for England, plus Middlesbrough and Manchester City, but while at the Mancs he has fallen out of favour. Strange that Sven Goran Ericksson picked Mills for England but doesn't think him good enough at City...

He has been troubled by knee problems over recent seasons, so hopefully we are not getting a dud on loan?

Welcome back Danny - has any Charlton player ever scored on both their spell debuts? Saturday would be a good time to get that record!

I'm happy about it - strangely, my son is not - his memory is that Mills jumped ship!
