Holland may go to Pompey
It would be a blow to many of the Addickted if he did go, as his battling qualities and commitment are widely appreciated, reflected by his third placing in the Player of the Year poll. The Charlton midfield still looks weak even for the Championship, even if one does rate Lloyd Sam and think that Andy Reid will have a season relatively free from injury.
The news that Jerome Thomas may stay at The Valley as no offers have come in for him, despite rumours of a £1.8m bid by Birmingham, will be scant consolation. Playing in the Championship could well put him into a permanent sulk.
