Jase hopes for new lease of life

Jason Euell has recently been linked with Cardiff City but he hopes that the anticipated appointment of Iain Dowie on Tuesday will give his career at The Valley a new lease of life. He told The Times 'A few players like me have a year left on our deals. When a new manager comes in it is a fresh start. We want to try to earn that new deal — if there is to be one.'

Is Jase moonlighting meanwhile? I went to see Julius Caesar at the RST in Stratford on Saturday and the guy playing Mark Antony was a dead ringer for the Charlton striker. He even had a limp which looked like a football injury. Perhaps he had a try out with the Bardsmen aka Stratford Town.

There is still some uncertainty about who Dowie will bring with him as he moves 'up north' closer to the Thames. Les Reed looks as if he will have a coaching role, but it is not clear whether general manager (football) Andrew Mills counts as part of the triumvarite. Initially he was brought in to relieve Richard Murray of some of his responsibilities and to stop the next manager having to spend so much time on Eurostar as Curbs did. In any event it looks like there will be some kind of coaching role for Chris Powell.
