I’ve been going to Charlton for 45 years now through periods of misery , mostly misery , more misery and the occasional blue sky and success and God willing I’m not about to stop going soon .
I have a couple of 20 year season tickets, so I don’t think you can question my committment to the cause
However , there are times when results and circumstances dim the enthusiasm and I’m certainly feeling that now . Its such a shame that we lost the impetus that last year gave us .
It was obvious in the summer that the lack of any new recruits particularly in the middle of the pitch was going to make it a difficult year . I am sure that its not easy putting your hand in your pocket to find £3-5m every year just to keep the bus on the road , but its a shame that another £2-3m to fund 3 quality additions couldn’t have been found when we already had the momentum of a winning side . I would have thought that a push into the play offs would have been entirely feasible .
You never know I might dredge up some enthusiasm to make it along tonight , but if not , can someone give them an encouraging shout from me
