Have Charlton agreed to bring any first team players?

Just noticed that the Enfield Advertiser is showing EFC v Charlton Athletic and Millwall, not Charlton Athletic XI and Millwall XI. Thought I should let you know, in case there's any confusion.

To be honest, I'm not sure I'd recognise Millwall's first string these days apart from Claridge.

I agree Cyclops, but as for generating income fans turn out for the names/stars.

I still remember vividly the Arsenal game at Southbury. That income must have set the club up for the whole season!

Does anyone remember the Tottenham friendly when the programme listed the FULL Spurs team? We ended up playing against their Youth Reserves Under-11's or summit - but at least we won 1-0! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="images/icons/grin.gif" /> <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="images/icons/grin.gif" /> <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="images/icons/grin.gif" />

Was that the one that had 10 YTS lads plus Peter Suddaby (who at least brought the average age back up)?

I also remember the friendly against a real Spurs first XI (or rather a first X plus Mario Kempes). I didn't actually see much football as that was my tea-hut debut but I'm told that Mr Kempes was not very good. His trial was not extended.

I actually recognise more than just Claridge. There are also...

Stuart Nethercott. Played against the Es as a member of youth/reserve squad teams sent along by Spurs. Also played against the Es for Barnet.

David Tuttle. Quite a talented Spurs youth/reserve player in pre-season games against the Es.

Sean Dyche. One time Spireite.

Dion Dublin. Coventry, ManU, Villa, etc.

I don't suppose that most Es fans will recognise many more than I did. I really can't see the first team drawing a big crowd. Instead EFC has made what I believe to be a wise move in pitting its team against full-timers who aren't good enough (yet, in some cases) to hold down a regular first team spot. It should give Terry Back the chance to see how the stamina of his players stands up against a side which isn't going to switch off during the game because they were on the beer and ciggies last night and are feeling a bit out of breath.

Mario "no-kicka-da-ball-forwards" Kempes' only game for Spurs in England. I think he played once or twice on tour abroad. At the time the rumour was that they were signing him to make sure the people in the executive boxes along one side at White Hart Lane would get to see more play at close quarters. Spurs just had to stick him on the other side of the pitch and wait for the square passes to go exec. boxwards.
