Firstly a bloody fantastic result last night, which makes for a lovely weekend and optimism returning. Well done to everyone , new manager , players and the brave fans who made the journey
To be frank as I said in my last blog , fans only really care about the results.The majority of fans don’t make moral judgements about where the money comes from and would be delighted if colonel gadaffi was the owner if he put tons of money in to buy good players. Look at the dodgy owners of both Chelsea and Man City. Lets be honest , even though roman abramovich has effectively robbed every man , woman and child in Russia , we’d have been delighted if his helicopter had landed at the valley.
If charlton started winning every week , loads more people will come and watch again and all is well with the world. All the stuff about warm feeling , cuddly , ‘different’ charlton to my mind is a load of cobblers.
Just a bit of perspective on this mini revival is required. Lucky Guy (long may it continue) has been able to pick Steven Henderson, which poor old bob didn’t have available during the losing run. Secondly, we have had a 2nd centre half available ie Roger Johnson to give Bikey a break. Bob had Morrison and we should have kept him.
Guy has been able to play a proper 2nd striker, ie not network George but network Tony ,which wasn’t a choice open to poor old bob.
What we have really needed all season is 2 decent strikers and at least 1 if not 2 proper wide players. Last night we had Bulot, Gudmunssen, Eagles and Harriot all playing out wide at some point.
None of this was really a surprise to any of us who watch every week was it.
Maybe if Guy sits with us in the east stand and then phones Roland after every game , Roland will trust him and we will get what we need and not 1 bloke up front , no wingers and 6 kids on the subs bench.
If so , we will all be happy- it’s not complicated.
Anyway let’s hope the run runs and runs. We need to keep progressing and not just trying to avoid relegation every year. That will keep everyone happy.
