Charlton Athletic 3 Leyton Orient 1
April Fools Day came late to SE7 yesterday as not only did those rip roaring Addicks win for the first time in 7 weeks, the ball stayed on the ground for longer than it has for months and Jose Semedo scored only his second goal in 128 Charlton appearances. Feels good doesn’t it?

Judging by reports we started well, with a good tempo and movement. Then we conceded and our fragile confidence split. At half-time though Powell finally got through to the players and they came out and put on a show. The O’s didn’t lie down however and the Valley faithful got a long-owed decent match, 3 goals, some positive talking points afterwards and of course 3 points.

We can forget relegation now and build some positivity around the club for next season, just like Brighton did a year ago.

I had a winning day yesterday as Butler University also won overcoming Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) to make it to the final of the National College Basketball final tomorrow night.

We’ve enjoyed Coral Gables, the weather has been perfect and my daughter and I made sure Mummy had a winning day today too. We leave for Colorado in the morning and I’ll be in the cold of Aspen for Tuesday night’s game.

Addicks with smiles on their faces: Drinking During the Game; Charlton Casual; Blackheath Addicted; Deepest Darkest; And Nothing Else Matters; Mike’s Meanderings; Doctor Kish.
CA fact: That was Jose’s first goal since August 2009.

    I must admit to being a bit frustrated by Charlton bloggers CA; none of them have given my son and I (commonly known as the two Jonahs) any credit for this one at all. We were on the coach when my son felt travel sick at sunny Sevenoaks, so we had to get off and come home. We all know Charlton would have lost this one had we got to the game, so why can’t we get a Blackheath Addick 8 out of 10?

    Excuses, blogger excuses KHA…I’ll forgive if you tell us all about your trip to Floirda. I could do with cheering up. Whoops – no I don’t!
