The Racing Post published their half time football season predictions today and their League 1 pundit has bravely advised punters to get on Charlton at 6-1 to achieve promotion. For those of you who are both diehards and clueless, you can get 70-1 now on us going up as Champions.
The pundit reckons our chances are dependent on getting our injured players back and that was before he heard about Billy Clarke. To my mind, our chances are more dependent on finding a 15 goal striker for the 2nd half of the season and that in turn is dependent on our geriatric owner deciding whether he cares whether we go up or not. Unfortunately since he is not a normal owner of a football club, none of us can know the answer to that.
Let us hope that we get some luck over the next few months and the greatest gift that any Charlton fan could have before the season is out would be a new owner and CEO who know what they are doing and care about the football club and it’s customers.
It would be great if we start the next run of games with a more direct and 2 men up front approach to the Blackpool game. Let’s really get after them instead of spending 20 passes to get in the penalty area.
Happy Christmas to all Charlton fans and your families – keep the faith surely our luck will change soon !
