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.
