Charlton have dropped into the abyss

I don’t know about you but losing games away at places like Rochdale and Scunthorpe and getting a lucky draw at Accrington in front of crowds of c 3,000 just shows to me how far the club has descended into the abyss.

It is frankly a disgrace and massively embarrassing for the dwindling diehard fans that still bother to go to games. It almost makes you ashamed to admit that you are a Charlton fan  – and I’ve been going week in week out now for 52 years.

I really like Lee Bowyer and I seriously hope that he can turn it around – but at some point we’ve got to stop saying how talented the players are and sort out what’s going on in games. To be honest, we’ve assembled the team for tuppence so they probably aren’t that good and probably can’t play it out from the back with 20 passes until it gets to Taylor or Grant. In which case , let’s stop trying that and get the ball forward quicker. We’ve been trying this tippy tappy stuff for 2 seasons now and it isn’t working.

maybe you have to play like Stoke in order to get out of this league – we need to be more direct and for heavens sake we won’t go anywhere unless the midfielders start to score some goals – Reeves, Fosu, Cullen, Aribo etc have to contribute.

Im not sure about all these small skilful players – what we need is a defence and midfield made up of 9 Jason Pearce’s

  1. Lucky draw at Accrington was you there , if so you would have seen us outplay them not many teams have done that …. we are 5 points away from play off with game in hand , teams have gained promotion by only going on a run in January so there a long way to go and lots of points to play for , funny you don’t post when we win ??

    • Red joe – I frequently post after we win – the Plymouth game just recently as an example. I’m sorry I struggle to get excited about playing well in the 3rd division against teams like Accrington

  2. We are being out thought and out fought. There are some very experienced managers and this level, including Keith Hill and we are being mugged off by all of them. Big mouth Bowyer and lovely nice Johnny Jackson are probably not up to it and nor are the fancy dan players more interested in their latest hair cuts.
