    Mambo needs a loan to at least a League 1 club. Personally don't rate him at all.

    But we've hardly seen him, Large.

    Really? you never said.

    Powell either sees something in him or he's gonna be first choice when we sell Morrison and Cort : - )

    Mambo was quality against reading in the carling cup last season and I also think Bover will push on to big things - good news IMO

    Bover = Iniesta of South London

    I said on the 'Yado Mambo' thread:

    I reckon the appointment of Nathan Jones has given Mambo another lifeline. Pleased for Bover too. I think he is a Charlton star in the making. His skill is second to none. The only downfall is the physicality but League 1 is definitely more physical than the CCC so he could have a part to play next season.

    seen him play enough for youth/reserves. Been on loan to many lower league teams and sometimes not even got in there sides and hasn't pulled up any trees. In my opinion not good enough, won't make it. Hope he proves me wrong but won't hold my breath.

    good on mambo. saw him at the fleet and though he's a bit slow he reads the game pretty well. worked well with the experienced Lorraine at centre back. like large said, he probably needs to go on loan at a league 1 club to get up to speed.

    It's nice to be optimistic from time to time.

    Mambo number 5? After all, Morrison is about to get sold because we are completely skint at the moment. ;-)

    Bover has been enjoying his holidays, i can tell you that!

    He also very much in love LOL. His facebook is interesting for pictures

    Mambo was hugely popular at ebbsfleet. They were rock bottom when he joined and drastically improved thereafter

    Some of that stuff is borderline porn, and he's going out with a right sort.

    Also didn't realise he was out of contract, would've been a shame to lose him.

    I thought he was on a 2 year deal.

    Big fan of Bover, love to see him push on

    Are we back up to 7 subs this year? If so it would be good for Bover to get on the bench and get some minutes to push on

    This is good news. Gotta hope they get a chance.

    Slightly surprised about Mambo, doing well in non league is hardly a sign of someone who could do a job 3 leagues higher. Maybe he's lucky, and we don't have any other CBs coming through the youth ranks.

    Must check out Bover's facebook page...

    I'm encouraged by this - for if we were desperately cutting costs these two would probably have been cut. Thus far they are not ready for the CCC or even L1 from my limited exposure - but how many of us have seen either of them play since the Preston game?

    Paul Hart and SCP would not be keeping them on out of sentiment (ask Conor Gough), let's give these boys a chance if we can afford it

    As per my comment, Gough was let go because we had an alternative young keeper who was even better, whereas maybe we have no better young CBs?

    Bover looks a promising player, probably an easy decision for powell.

    Mambo on the other hand, has failed to live up to hype somewhat so far. However he's a big lad, perfect build for a CB, he's one of them that if you get rid you have the feeling you might regret it.

    I'm pleased about Bover and I reckon he could become our next big thing (in this thread I started last year: http://forum.charltonlife.com/discussion/42088/ruben-bover/p1) so its great news he's signed on for another year. As for Mambo I don't think he'll make it with us unfortunately from what I've seen of him which admittedly isn't much but who knows?

    Also the up to date BBC still think we are in league 1: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/league-one

    Yes exactly, get him out on loan, so net cost not enormous, you never know....

    We clearly have other midfield options beyond Bover, but the mgmt sees promise. That's good enough for me.

    Had a chat with Mambo after the last game of the season and he seems to think he is going out on loan to a League One side next year

    Mambo isn't the next Sol Campbell, but I think he's got the basic attributes to be a good centre half, and with more training he can progress as a player. Physically he is a proper unit, and has played right back as well as centre back, so he can play a bit as well. I think his major problem will be mental, making the right decision under pressure and things like that, but that's a problem with most young players, so I don't think it's too big a problem. Here's hoping he continues to improve and shows his doubers and haters wrong
