My Valley Birthday

It was my birthday on Saturday and not only did my lovely, clever wife come with me to Charlton for one of her rare ( humour him) trips , but she also baked me a special cake in honour of my 55th birthday .

Unfortunately Steve Bruce seemed unaware of the event and conspired to produce a pretty turgid defensive display until the last 15 minutes when I thought he might mess up my whole day . Not sure I really understood why SCP didn’t use a sub or two . Some width , a la Green or Cook would have been useful . Anyway , its a good start , so no complaints from me . Nevertheless , I remain suspicious that Wilson was bought for a reason , so someone needs to hide the keys to Solly’s car until the end of the window.

As part of my huge array of birthday gifts , I got a few vintage programmes for my collection .

1964 Charlton Programme    Looking at this progranme , it did occur to me that it would be really good if some of the minor works in the ground like the gaping holes in the woodwork in the gents loos in the East Stand were fixed , maybe they should revisit the Charlton Development Fund .

One thought on “My Valley Birthday

  1. I thought Hamer in goal was man of the match which is a bit worry in itself. That said Hull were very well organised in defense and nearly caught us on the break more than once. Why Danny Green did not get a run out is anyones guess, unless we can’t afford the extra laundry bill as it was a mud bath out there in the 2nd half.
    Can’t wait to see you in your Andrews Air Con kit Mr. H.
