    Saw him play against Gillingham when he came on as a sub, but didn't really get the chance to notice too much.

    We are broke, shame it's not a first team player we're signing but hopefully he can push on.
  • Options
    Powell's had a good long look at him so hopefully it means he's convinced he's a worthwhile signing although I'm a little worried that we were just keeping him on hold until the very last minute in the hope something better came along, which it clearly it hasn't.

    Could be a Yann could be a Leon.

    Let's give the guy a chance.

    Just think back to the last time SCP signed a Frenchman on a free.

    Good point - lets hope for the same outcome...

    Hopefully he's better than the last player we signed called Dorian...

    Bienvenue Dorian.

    Thought he looked good at Bromley

    Well he got very good reviews from his spell at Southend but that was a while ago, and like Yann has been off the radar in foreign lower leagues since then.

    Trialled at a few clubs this summer, including Huddersfield, who didn't follow up, and rumoured to have a dodgy knee a la BWP, which struggled through a medical apparently.

    Sounds a squad filling gamble, hope it pays off.

    He's 6'3" so passes the CL height test.

    Clearly someone once good enough for the French U21s and for Spurs to pick up.

    The knee injury seems to have set him back and that could to be 1. the reason he was available 2. The reason he has only got a one year contract.

    As others have said Yann surprised a lot of people so let's give the guy a chance.

    If Sir Chris rates him, a decent chance he is going to be a good signing for us based on past experience. they don't all come off but a good percentage do.

    Spot on. The blokes got a good pedigree on paper but for whatever reason hasn't broken through to be a first team regular at Spurs or in Spain. Could be because, particularily as a central defender, you have to be exceptional to break into a Prem' side.

    Could turn out to be a good one, could go the other way but for crivens sake let's give the guy a chance.

    I think I have questioned 'who' about 15 times over the last 13 months? However was aware that Dervite was part of Spurs' squad a few years back and as with may other recent cases, Kermit, Pritchard, Hollands, Wiggins, Hamer etc am confident that SCP sees enough in him to know he'll provide decent competition to what we have got.

    Welcome Dorian.

    The 1 year contracts seem to be Powell 'gambling' on players. Not saying that its wrong but it doesn't fill me with confidence.
    To be fair, it worked with Pritchard and his contract has been extended, but giving a one year contract to Dervite and Kerkar leads me to believe that they are gambles.
  • Options
    gambles maybe but giving players 1 year contracts means they really have something to play for and cannot rest on the laurels of a 2 or 3 year contract.
  • Options
    Welcome to The Valley and good luck for the coming season.

    I think the Ladeeeees may be pleased with this one, well girls?

    I agree, I do think it is a good idea as it means that we don't have to commit to a player for a long time if they don't live up to their expectation. I just hope that these two pay off like the Pritch gamble.

    He was very highly rated at Spurs. Lets judge him when he's actually played a few games for us.
  • Options
    Anyone who has seen Kerkar play should know that it is more than just a 'gamble', there's quality there but there's no guarantee they will be consistently in the first team.

    Why give a three year contract to someone you know is only a back-up for now?

    Ha, ha. The same thought crossed my mind. Come on Fanny and Curb It, whats the verdict?

    A Southend pal says he was excellent for them.

    It does seem that we are on SCP's 'C' list of possible signings.
  • Options
    Yep let's give him a chance. Seems like he has a decent pedigree so I am optomistic that Charlton can revive that early potential. Have a good feeling about this one.
  • Options
    Looking forward to seeing his first appearance, which barring injuries will be in the cup in Jan 13

    Welcome Mr Dorian and good luck

    I think this could be a really excellent signing.

    Being the product of the French Academy system means he will be technically excellent.

    He's a tall lad and I think provided his knee issues can be managed, he is going to be a real coup.

    SCP looks for a number of things in players, technical excellence, physical strength and energy, and something to prove. He fits the bill in every case.
  • Options
    Certainly proves that there is no money left in the club.
  • Options
    Decent pedigree, plenty of potential left to fill, an air of unfinished business/a point to prove. Seems classic CP signing to me, heck even taking the chance on an injury seems to be a Powell tactic (didn't Kermo have something of a spotty record fitness wise?)
