Buzz off

Brentford 2 Charlton Athletic 1

Well I’m kind of getting into my 3rd Division mojo, I reckon we could be living down here for a few years yet. Days like today do nothing to prove to me that Phil Parkinson has what it takes to get us out of this division.

It doesn’t matter what your ambitions are, but not beating the bottom team three times in a matter of a few weeks is not inspiring.

I really thought after Benson’s late winner on Tuesday that today with the benefit of a short trip and good backing we wouldn’t only win but win well. The first half performance by all accounts was nothing short of abysmal.

10 games in (12 including cups) and we have yet to play well this season but implausibly still find ourselves a point off the play-off places. This is a poor division and we belong in it.

Addicks deserving of at least a beer in each one of Griffin Park’s pubs: Drinking During the Game; Doctor Kish.
CA fact: We have now not won at Griffin Park since 1980.

  1. Well said with your last sentence CA (sentence it bloody is too)…it’s depressing.

  2. On the evidence of yesterday, we most certainly belong in tier 3.
    Not only that, for 45 minutes we looked like an ‘also ran’ tier 3 team.

    I wrote somewhat cold heartedly (given the play-off pain) that persisting with PP was to “tolerate mediocrity”, and nothing I’ve seen, read or heard since suggests I’m wrong.

    Unfortunately our finances probably prevent us aspiring to much more, but it makes Murray’s comments about him being the best manager he’s worked with sound ridiculous.

    Boys, boys, boys. Its all part of a cunning master plan. When we have been at the top end of the table we have blown it towards the end of the season – this way we go on a run after Christmas and the first half of the season is completely forgotten.
