We have to remember that Varney is unproven at this level and as such is a risk, as fans we should not be putting too much pressure on his shoulders. Bents perfromance at Tooting was reported as much more positive than we have seen, so maybe Pards and he have come to an agreement or he is playing for his transfer, or Tooting were so rubbish it was impossible not to shine.
After the midweek friendlies, Pards indicated that Todorov needed to sharpen up and hopefully the coaching staff can work on that, after all it was only the opening game.
Still waiting on todays result from the behind closed doors game against a Chelsea XI, not currently in the USA.
With 151 votes cast Luke Varney polled 60, Todorov 52, Iwulemo 33, Walker 6 and Bent 2.

"It's going to be a big challenge but I think it was the right move for me.
"Charlton is a club that is moving in the right direction, upwards, and that wants to achieve things. I'm just delighted that I got the opportunity to be part of it.
"I definitely have the hunger (presumably for doughnuts) and I definitely think I have two more years in me (Just not this one). At the moment I feel like a little boy getting a bit of candy and I'm very happy and just ready to go.”Fat Eddy Murphy, he's just a fat Eddy Murphy

"The fans gave me plenty last season but it was all light-hearted I thought; it made me laugh and wasn't anything I found offensive."
So 24,000 fans singing "Nicky Weaver takes it up the ar*e", did not offend our Nicky. Is it not offensive because this true, or he is thick skinned, or deaf. I think we need to know.
What is it with these Scousers, Jamie Carragher for England, Danny Murphy for Charlton .. it seems if you are a scouser then you must play regardless of who else is around.
Then you have David James, a player who has been blasted, but still is probably the best goalkeeper able to qualify for England, for 90% of the time. But despite being dropped from the number one spot, despite having to compete against Paul Robinson, Ben Foster and Scott Carson, despite the nickname Calamity James says he is still available, it would be an honour to play for England, would never withdraw his availability.
Both players have worn the Liverpool jersey and both have represented their country with honour but Carragher has shown a distinct lack of bottle for fighting for his place, who could imagine Terry Butcher lying down and taking it if he had failed to establish a place in the team. there are hundreds of players in the Prem and Coca Cola who would die to play for England, but for Carragher it is such a worthless honour that he is willing to skulk over at Anfield, whereas David continues to promote the cause and fight for his place, I know who I would rather have in my team.
