The Numbers Game

Not long after my blog about the Charlton squad last week, Chris Powell made two further signings – Ben Hamer, and Andy Hughes – and with the release of the squad numbers today, the first eleven seems ever clearer.

The full 2011/12 Charlton squad list:

1. Ben Hamer

2. Andy Hughes

3. Cedric Evina

4. Johnnie Jackson

5. Michael Morrison

6. Matt Taylor

7. Danny Green

8. Dale Stephens

9. Paul Hayes

10. Bradley Wright-Phillips

11. Scott Wagstaff

12. Gary Doherty

13. John Sullivan

14. Paul Benson

15. Yado Mambo

16. Rhoys Wiggins

18. Bradley Pritchard

19. Simon Francis

20. Chris Solly

21. Ruben Bover Izquierdo

22. Danny Hollands

23. Mikel Alonso

25. Ben Davisson

26. Tosan Popo

27. Freddie Warren

29. Conor Gough

30. Nick Pope

31. Jordan Cousins

32. Callum Harriott

33. Harry Osborne

44. Rob Elliot

Updating from last week, it now seems that Robbie Elliot is not going to be first choice ‘keeper, even though he has not given any personal inkling that he may be off to pastures new soon. With Hamer gaining his number 1 shirt though, maybe Robbie will ponder his options and the club will cash in on him. It will be a shame if he does leave, as it is always nice to have actual fans playing for the team (and when he kisses the shirt, you know he means it!). Similarly, with Hughes signed on a free transfer from Scunthorpe and given the number 2 shirt, we can expect him to usurp both Chris Solly and Simon Francis and make the right back slot his own. What Francis will do now I don’t know, but he surely cannot expect much game time having been ripped from his shirt number after turning down a move to Bournemouth.

My revised starting eleven for the match on Saturday, bearing in mind that Danny Green is suspended, is as follows:

Ben Hamer
Andy Hughes
Rhoys Wiggins
Michael Morrison
Matt Taylor
Scott Wagstaff
Dale Stephens
Danny Hollands
Johnnie Jackson
Paul Hayes
Bradley Wrght-Phillips

Subs – Sullivan, Evina, Doherty, Bover, Benson.

Come on you addicks!
