Ajose wouldn't be a number 9 either, would he?  I am sure Brown means a forward with some presence who can score - Thorne would have been a 9, Finney, Shearer etc.
Yes I would say that PB is suggesting that he is what would be an old fashioned number 9 of the slightly larger target man style of play.

What is the difference between a 5 and 6?  This one must be a Reg era thing, is a five more of a stopper than a 6?  We used to have it the other way around, 6 was always the nutter.

It dates well back to when the printed formation was basically 2-3-5. The full backs being the two took 2 and 3. Then in front you had 3 'half backs' 4 being the right half, 5 the centre half and 6 the left half. 5 Therefore the is the old school centre half number.

Same with the number 9 being the centre forward, as 7/8/10/10 were outside/inside left/right forwards.

When I started, keepers had a plain shirt... RB was 2, LB 3, CH 5 then wing halves were 4 and 6. Inside forwards were 8 and 10... wingers 7 and 11, CF 9.

Then keepers got a 1..... Everton were one of the first to fuck about with this, when they had John Hurst who wore 10 and played at the back or as a DM.  Think it was after Italia 90 that  squad numbers were introduced... and I lost interest in who wore what.  Still couldn't tell you what any of our players since wore, as their significance became irrelevant.

A Real Madrid player with the initials ZZ wore a no. 5 shirt.  I think he may be out of contract?

I recall that Charlton had an outfield player using number 1 in/around 1993

Famously Ossie wore 1, playing for Argentina in 78.  They numbered the squad alphabetically.

I have just undertaken a google search to 'verify' this.  It appears that there was a similar thread on a Charlton Athletic forum. How great minds think alike !

Not entirely convinced he would be a target for PB, I would welcome him back but not sure his wages would fit into our tight budget now.

Several clubs after Ajose too, most from higher leagues.

If budget is an issue for Fortune, it most certainly will be for Ajose too.

Ajose already has a salary with another club, though. He'd get paid regardless. MAF was a free agent.

I doubt he'll come if teams higher up want him though.

Charlton only able to name 5 players on the bench so unless they sign a fair few, I can't see ajose being allowed to leave for anyone.

Id imagine the offer for Fortune was based on what we thought he was worth, not what we could afford.

Anyway, Deadline Day - thank God it closes at 5pm instead of the usual 11pm.

Hope to see 2 in today. Weird that nobody has a clue who they may be. The club have been really tight this year.

Power spoke about the offer on Saturday pre game.

Basically he said that Fortune wanted to play every game and Brown said he wouldn't play every game so offered him a contract that reflected that. Fortune decided to go to Chesterfield where he would play week in week out for similar money.

If Brown really wanted Fortune and thought he would be a major aquisition then we would have signed him.
