Millwall Intellectual actually one of us ?

It was shocking to read in this morning’s Sunday Times magazine  that Millwall Intellectual ( I know its probably an oxymoron ) is really one  of us after all.

The amazing revelation that leads me to this conclusion is that his real career ambition was to be a train spotter ,   sorry I mean train driver . Come on its near enough . After years of sarcastic comments about Charlton fans being anorak wearing train spotters etc , Rod finally reveals himself , at heart , he is just one of us.  Come on Rod , come over to the bright side. Kelvin Mackenzie did it and I’m sure you two would get on like a house on fire. Also, I bet Jim Davidson is just your type of chap.

After the last 2 games , Watford away , which was fantastic & life affirming , followed by Huddersfield at home which was morale sapping & dreadful , its difficult to know what to make of Charlton . The disturbing statistic that we havent won a Saturday home game all season says it all really . Somehow a change of tactics /personnel is required to put this right otherwise  the crowds will continue to drift down. The other thing that concerns me is the poverty of the football itself . Yesterday’s incessant barrage of high balls was as hopeless and boring , as it was unproductive .

It seems to me that the 3 elements  that the current Palace team have that we don’t  are 2 good wingers , Zaha & Bolasie servicing a half decent 20 goal a year striker , Murray.  The rest of the team probably isn’t much better than ours.

Anyway, lets hope for better things on Saturday and some new arrivals to brighten things up . I guess its not a good sign on the transfers out front that Solly  was nowhere to be seen yesterday.

One thought on “Millwall Intellectual actually one of us ?

  1. The absence of Solly with Wilson at right back shows how poor the team potentially is without him. Wilson is a much better right half than right back. The midfield really misses Wilson’s drive in midfield with him at right back and puts the central midfield (and the defensive) pairing under greater pressure.
    The lack of pace across the front line also is a concern and puts strikers under pressure with the few chances they do get. Kermogant is not prolific and BWP seems to need around 5 chances to score for each goal; you don’t usually get that in the championships.
    Maybe that is the only good to come from the game, to illustrate to the owners / TJ / MS what would happen to the team if they cash in on some of the family silver without strengthening. A relegation scrap is likely, (whoever is managing). Loans and step down, or injury prone ex premier professionals will not do it.
    The margins in the champs are fine, with x3 good quality additions in midfield, striking and left half the club would be challenging the top 6. Remove the quality in the squad and Charlton will do well to stay up.

    Lets see what the transfer window brings.
