New Home For Kish
At some stage over this weekend, as previously mentioned we are expecting to hear about the departure or release of Radostin Kishishev, after being frozen out of our relegation struggle and subject to the one up at Leeds. Its being reported that the new boss at Leicester, Martin "Mad dog" Allen is set to make Kish his first signing (BBC Rumours).
Kish is one of those players you either love or hate. Signed as a right back he was terrible, notably being found out of position in our first season back against Derby resulting in an early two nil deficit, before the management decided he was more of a wing back or midfielder. It was in his mid field role that he played the role of club Jack Russell, running here there and everywhere, often breaking up the oppositions play getting the ball and returning it to them. His best period at the Valley was when Murphy and Smertin were tearing up tree's at the beginning of 2005 / 2006 and he formed the stabilising forcing in the centre until Curbs lost his nerve.
Having spent the end of last season at Leeds where he found his level, it looks like we will come up against him next term, but apart from that, i am sure most Addicks will wish him the best of luck.
