Charlton were pretty dreadful again today making even Oldham looking like promotion contenders in the second half. I know there is a lot of uncertainty around the club, but perhaps we need a Lennie Lawrence or a Curbs back who had to deal with lots more than Karl off the pitch and just got on with it.
I really struggle to understand what role Ricky Holmes has, don’t get me wrong he is an excellent player , but he’s a bloody winger – leave him on the wing, don’t let him wander all over the place. We brought Mavadidi on, who scored an excellent goal, but he basically contributed nothing else because he was stuck out wide whilst Holmes was pushed up alongside Magennis. Tactically, we look clueless even against Oldham. I like Karl, but I am starting to wonder.
Peter Varney has stepped down from Ebbsfleet tonight. I understand that there is no love lost between Richard Murray and Peter but they are both proper Charlton fans who love the club and it would be fantastic to see a properly funded club with Peter back as CEO. Let us hope that’s a possibility – if so , maybe Chris Powell is currently searching for his tracksuit.
