Never “flourished” at any point including under stendel who won just 2 games out of 14 in the league. Gash player and if that’s the standard for Charlton we won’t be seeing them back in the championship any time soon. 


To be fair, I thought he was one of the very few players to get pass marks under Stendel. He did well when moved to wing back.

 

That said, we did well to get cash for him and thought it was the right choice to sell him.

Couldn’t give a toss if he had 2-3 OK games as an auxiliary full back. He was an important midfield signing tipped to be an important player for us and he was paid a healthy sum. He flopped spectacularly and not 1 tear was shed over him leaving.

Ended up being one of the most over-rated Hearts players in recent memory. 
 

Absolutely crap, but bizarrely held up as a poster child by many.

Whatever people think of Clare's performances on the pitch, I can't tolerate any of these roasters that call him things like "Chicken hearted". He's the opposite.

He could have shrank and shrivelled up when everyone was getting on his back. That could have destroyed his confidence entirely but he never let it truly get to him. He stuck it out and proved that he could rise above it. In my books he really did improve significantly towards the end.

 

Intelligent guy and I love that he's outspoken in his beliefs. I wish we still had someone at Hearts who was as vocal about societys ills and all that fun stuff.

This!  The guy even paid for a sports psychologist to help improve his confidence as he knew it was affecting his game.  

He put more effort in than most of tbe other signings at that time.

Hope he has a great career.

Article popped up on my Google,  https://londonnewsonline.co.uk/sean-clare-on-silencing-his-doubters-assessing-oxford-stay-and-second-crack-at-a-charlton-athletic-career/

 

Not sure Sean will ever rise above fairly average but seems likes a decent intelligent guy. Speaks well of us.

Played his best football for us under Stendel..

Grew to like Sean Clare a lot. Absolutely solid at right back and was a standout every week under Stendel.

Incredibly brave of him to state the facts like that. I liked him as a player but he was unfortunate to be playing at such a crap time for Hearts, his late goal at St Johnston was brilliant.

Good Lad Sean. Took a lot of crap but came onto a game towards his end with Hearts.

I liked Sean and couldn’t understand the grief he got. Best wishes for a full recovery.

I like Sean. He was treated horribly here for a long time and rose above it in a very dignified manner.

Aw the best Sean, hope all goes well, and you have a speedy recovery.

Many thanks for converting your penalty at Easter Road.

Ooft. That's not going to be an easy surgery.

 

All the best to him. I don't mind players that don't work out as long as they put in an honest shift and don't lose the head. I'm glad it's gone well for him down south.

Good luck Sean. A fair few arseholes in our support should be ashamed at how they treated you. 
 

Football aside, best wishes are with him.

It’s a fairly straightforward surgery.

Good luck to him with this.

 

My son never fails to remind me that I promised him a full kit with his name printed on the back if Sean Clare ever scored. That was about five minutes before he got his first ever goal for us v Livvy in the cup.

Why does he need to remind you. Surely you didn’t welch out on the deal.

If I'm not a shite father now, then he has no interesting 'overcome the odds' backstory when he makes it big in the future.

Outstanding reply 😂 Solid logic, as every big shot from Barbra Streisand to Eminem need that emotionally stressed childhood to spur them on

For most of his time with us looked like a player with little confidence in his own ability ,I think Stendal was able to get him over that and he improved ,if he would have improved more I don't know .

Good guy but right decision to move him on.

I quite liked him in his last 6 months. Vastly improved.

 

I think he would've done well in our current team.

Sean was the worst thing since sliced bread, according to Pep and his cronies on here.

 

He became ‘no bad’ when his position was changed, according to all the Klopps on here.

 

The truth is, he was the same player at all times and, as most decent human beings should be able to relate to, took very badly to the horrendous abuse he took from many fans.

 

Good luck with the operation, Mr Clare.

We can all have opinions of his ability as a footballer, but when it comes to this, we are all on his side. Good luck to the lad.

Good post I agree with this he did not change much at all but some had a pre determined idea of him and refused to change it …………… he took some abuse on Twitter and I really felt for the man

I am ignorant too then because I also thought it was a pretty risky procedure to remove a birth mark that size ……………. I think a big issue is whether or not it is vascular

Really liked him when he eventually found his feet with us,  was majorly hyped up by Levein which didn’t help, he would be ideal for a euro run next season👌
hope he makes a swift recovery🇱🇻🇱🇻

I liked Sean Clare. He joined us at the wrong time. He would have prospered in the present side. I hope his operation goes well.

Best wishes to him, a likeable guy & a good player. Would have been interesting to see him in the current setup rather than the Levein shitshow, Charlton fans seem to be keen on him

I really rated him. Very good player.

 

A memory I have of him was a game against Celtic. Hickey got himself in trouble in the box. So sensibly put the ball out for a throw in. Berra (our captain)screamed blue murder at him. It was Clare who put an arm round him and told him it was OK. This at a time he wasn't exactly playing his best.

 

Clearly a great guy and I wish him all the best in football and life.

On another note, interesting to see he is now a centre back for Charlton

Sean Clare was a good you player in a poor Hearts team. Us fans got on his back and he was one of a few that took the blame for the gash performances.

Who over rated him he got nothing but totally un justified abuse from day one
