Charlton Linked With Town Pair
Charlton Linked With Town Pair
Monday, 26th Jul 2010 14:02

League One Charlton have been linked with Blues pair Kevin Lisbie and Lee Martin. Lisbie, who spent the whole of last season on loan at Colchester, was previously with the Addicks between 1995 and 2007 and is believed to be a permanent target of his old club, while the Londoners want the former Manchester United man on loan.

Both players were amongst the eight recently made available for transfer by the Blues, but Lisbie looks the more likely of the two to join the Addicks, who last week announced a number of redundancies.

Town would probably allow Lisbie to move on for either a free transfer or for a nominal fee, while Martin’s wages, which are understood to be in the region of £12,000-a-week, would certainly be beyond a League One side. The Blues may be willing to allow Martin to go out on loan, but only if the other club were paying a significant proportion of his wages.

Meanwhile, Newcastle City Council have announced plans to build a memorial garden in tribute to Sir Bobby Robson.

This would be sweet revenge for Charlton taking all our best players a while back . . .

Come on Phil, I mentioned this half an hour ago! Think you need to employ me lol

Good news about Lisbie and would be able to get his wages off the bill.
And I think Lee Martin should be kept as back up for Civelli.

Fatboy added 14:12 - Jul 26
I think Martin will come good, so maybe a loan spell would be a good move for him and the club. He'll be playing against a better standard of opposition in League 1 than he would be in the reserves.

tractaboy added 14:15 - Jul 26
Martin is still young and i think we should give him another season.Lisbie on the other hand, i'd let him go on a free to get shot of the waster, get him off the wage bill. League 1 is his level.

I seriously reckon that Lee Martin must be one if not THE worst player we've ever paid so much money for.... Somewhere near 2M to buy & 12k a week makes Finidi George look like a fabulous buy back then... 12k a week....! JOKE.

muhrensleftfoot added 14:45 - Jul 26
Lee Martin - can't shooot, can't pass, can't cross, can't tackle, can't dribble. What a waste of money. I wish someone would pay me 12k a week not to be able to do any of the above.

Do we have to give them some money to clinch the deal?

Getting rid of Lisbie would be a real bonus. Martin MAY come good - who knows - was okay at PSV last week.

bluechick added 15:20 - Jul 26
wow, getting rid of both permanently would be a real win double. Martin will never come good, bambi on ice had more finesse than that fool

Good one SeriouslyDelusional:)))
I'd suggest they take Healy and Quinn too!

SiBo added 16:11 - Jul 26
Lisbie... Goodbye! Martin... I still think he can turn it around as he DOES have the ability, he just needs to apply it with the right frame of mind.

i think martin might come good has featured alot in pre season maybe needed the first year to settle as for lisbie id get rid of him as soon as pos. With all our forwards leaving i hope there is some one in the pipe line and a deal can be done quick so they settle in for the boro game

ipswichfrancis added 17:25 - Jul 26
RK not god, RK is club destroyer...... it's time to sell players and offer buy 1-get-1 free manager as well........

glad to see a bit of transfer movement happening now,its been a long closed season,in regards to lee martin,after the slating the fans gave him last season i honestly believe the lad will come good this year!keep him here and give him a chance,plus charlton couldn't afford his wages anyway!

itfc1981 added 18:05 - Jul 26
17 goals in 12 years! what a player!

John_Warks_Tash added 18:18 - Jul 26
Lisbie is the one player I'd happily spend my hard earned wages on petrol, and personally drive him to The Valley! I hate to think how much we've wasted on wages on him in th last year or so. Were Col u paying his full wages last season? I doubt it!
As for Lee Martin- He was a mega disappointment last season, came with full of promise etc etc, and I've probably seen him play one good game in that time so far, and that was the pre-season against Real Sociedad or whoever it was we played from Spain last season.
For we paid for him and what he pay in wages, I'd truly love to see him come good this season. But I'm not holding out much hope.

i thought martin was rubbish from the moment he pulled on a town shirt - BUT - he played ok in Holland last week.

bluearmy4life added 19:30 - Jul 26
Taxi for 'red hot busy phone lisbie'!!!!

slowerball added 23:26 - Jul 26
It's not RK's fault - he actually wanted Dean Martin.

suffolksam added 07:43 - Jul 27
if they would take lisbie and keane it would be good but then again lisbie could come good
