Charlton Athletic fans divided on Twitter on 27-year-old’s performance
There is no doubt Marcus Maddison has quality at League One level.
The attacking midfielder has proved this at Peterborough United in the past and could be a huge player for Charlton Athletic this season.
Maddison, who is 27 years old, was snapped up by the Addicks on a free transfer in the last transfer window.
He has made a handful of appearances so far for Lee Bowyer’s side but many feel the best is yet to come from him.
Maddison has always shown he can be a match winner at this level but there have been question marks over his attitude in the past.
He played for Charlton in their 1-1 draw away at Gillingham and struck the crossbar in the first-half with a specular long-range free-kick. However, many felt he struggled to make an impact in the game.
The Addicks left Priestfield with just a point, but may feel it could have been more with the Gills being awarded a very soft penalty for their goal.
Bowyer told their website: “It was a crazy game. First half I thought we had a lot of possession but didn’t really hurt them much. They hit us on the break the odd time or something fell in their path. Second half I thought we controlled the game. I think from start to finish we moved the ball really well today. On another day we probably score four goals, our finishing was just a little off.”
Here is how the Charlton fans reacted on Twitter to Maddison’s peformance-

Feel like everything has to go through Maddison in this formation. Would like Smyth to get some minutes and go 433! #cafc
