New Millwall striker Scott McDonald said playing for a manager who wants him was the key to him agreeing a move to The Den this summer.
The Australian joined from Middlesbrough after his contract there ran out and admitted life wasn't always rosy in the north-east. Now he's excited about starting afresh in south-east London under Lions boss Steve Lomas.
Middlesbrough came from a goal down at The Valley to win by a canter against a Charlton side still looking for their first home win since the second game of the season.
It all started so well for the south-east Londoners. Charlton were looking dangerous on
the counter-attack and that was the key to the opening goal.
West Ham's fine away form continued with a 2-0 win over Middlesbrough last night.
An early goal from Freddie Piquionne and an injury time strike from substitute Carlton Cole earned the Irons all three points against their Championship promotion rivals and left manager Sam Allardyce a happy man.
"Daft as a brush" was Bobby Robson's description of former England midfielder Paul Gascoigne.
Sadly that daftness had a darker side, which has manifested itself in recent years in a well-documented drink problem. He's clearly still fragile, but Gascoigne, 44, is happier now.
