Apathy Valley

The really depressing thing about following Charlton this season is the lack of fan interest – I think we all realised that when he let Washington and ( even) Davison go without replacing them that this season was going to be a complete waste of time. Fans are voting with their feet. The crowd today was abysmal again. The owner has no ambition and what’s the point in us bothering if he isn’t. I’ve had 55 years of going week in week out and I can’t ever remember being less motivated to go.
The team is poor – there are only 2 or 3 who could play in the Championship. The tactics are dull and boring , loads of possession but not enough creativity or direct attacking threat. The most exciting element is watching Inniss and Lavelle wondering what is about to go wrong.

I hope I’m wrong but I think we face a real threat of relegation to the 4th division for the first time in our history

I am truly sorry for being so negative because the world is already a bit depressing at the moment without me being a Jeremiah but we are certainly at a very low point in the history of our football club that means so much to all of us.

  1. I have supported Charlton since 1946 and now find it so depressing. How sad but then the current owner is clueless. I could not find the new Manager better than Johnny Jackson. Relegation awaits unfortunately. How sad.

  2. Albury,
    You know as all fans know, that to bring success one has got to speculate to accumulate,however as us fans are aware TS will not or can not spend money on the team. an imminent sale looks likely?. but to whomever. All depressing, how can any fans feel positive at present.Happy Xmas.

    “Can the last fan leaving the Valley, please turn off the floodlights,cancel the milk and paperes and put out the cat…..I thank you !!!! ”
    Sooooooo depressing to watch, we didn’t kill the game when needed…..Dobbo was telling a few what was needed…..let’s hope we can win the return game…..I have my doubts.
