Old boiler

When the mad professor and his useless lackey finally jack it in and leave us to pick up the pieces, there won’t be a book written about their days of yore, or a movie, or a television series. No, there will be a west end show, a proper comedy romp. Oh how we will laugh….

The latest in a long line of embarrassment’s occurred yesterday with 500 Scunthorpe fans already on their way down the M1, the club called off the game due to a frozen Valley pitch. What about the undersoil heating Addick’s cried? Not connected to a heat source the club whispered, or at least poor old groundsman Nathan Chapman was forced in front of the camera to explain.

So undersoil heating without the heating. But don’t fret because when we get into the Premier League, the billionaire with around £12m recently stuffed into his pockets, will make the investment.

    *Correction: It wasn’t the Club that called the game off yesterday – it was the Ref! Also, how many League 1 Clubs have got Active Undersold Heating working in this League? No one! However, you never miss the opportunity to ‘moan’ about Charlton. So, if you dislike the Club that much, then why not just go and do something else instead? Rather than post more misleading information & untruths!

    • Jon –

      Well, MK Dons, Coventry and Sheffield United all have undersoil heating and MK Dons ran an article on their website saying they switched it on leading up to the game.

      And Southend have sacked their groundsman for not getting their game on.

      I would suggest the club were happy that the game was off. Of course I accept it was the referee’s decision.

      I am doing something else instead. I’m not spending thousands of pounds flying home to watch around 8 games a season all the time Duchatelet tears the soul out of the club I have supported since 1975.

    Praise must be given to Nathan Chapman and his team who I’m sure worked as hard as possible during the week to get the game on….frost covers can only protect to a certain minus temperature….don’t shoot the groundsman !!!

    • Agree Chris. Hopefully he doesn’t carry the can like the Southend groundsman has.

  3. Well I think its the”new thinking”,as we saw with Corbyn,he wants to send out Trident subs with with no warheads, probably just as well as it seems they were aimed at America which certainly would have scuppered any future post Brexit trade deal,but I have to say,and I have just put my tin hat on,well its a saucepan really,when they laid the new playing surface the under soil heating was for any unlikely return to the Premier
    League,but I have to say when I heard the news Saturday morning my first thought was”that’s handy”. Some might say its just not cricket,after all cricket people wouldn’t rig a pitch,would they?

    Given the absence of a recognisable defence, my initial thought was that big Karl would have flicked the switch off himself, locked the door and taken home the keys but apparently not??
    Let’s not forget guys that under our previous less than astute but unchallenged owners, who left us at the foot of the championship, it didn’t need -4 to postpone a game, just a spot of rain on a Saturday morning ‘Justifying the regime’ I hear you cry – no – just a bit of perspective.

    I get the impression from all the banter that we’re actually hopeful of picking up some points from this fixture when the injuries have returned and it’s replayed in 2/3 weeks time. LOL.
