Millwall 2 Charlton Athletic 1

Every single time. Every f-in single time. As night follows day. It’s tiring.

I had four hours sat in JFK airport after I slammed my laptop shut. I could have been depressed. I could have been angry, but I felt nothing, nothing at all. Because deep down it came as no bloody surprise whatsoever.

Our weakness is set-pieces and as soon as that 7ft bloke came on I felt my heart rate jump. I was quite relaxed until then. I was frustrated that Bow seemed to settle for a point when he brought Lapslie on, because I still thought a little bit of Gallagher or Cullen magic may have given us an opportunity. Yet we appeared to be happy with a point. I would have been too (I don’t think we deserved more), but we are a not a team who can sit back.

And our passing was off again, we were too sloppy in possession, causing our own problems by putting us under undue pressure. Sarr was woeful and at fault for both goals.

We didn’t deserve to win but we were the better team at the end of the first and the start of the second, but after we scored we failed to take advantage. And what an awful bloody start.

They just wanted it more at the beginning and got their goal, and they just wanted it more at the end. Every f-in time.

Addicks at The New Den:
Bow: “Do your jobs. That’s what it comes down to. Do your job and make sure your man doesn’t score. We didn’t do that today; we weren’t good enough and that wasn’t good enough.”
Elsewhere: Forest beat Derby in the East Midlands derby. Stoke won under new manager Michael O’Neil, 4-2 at Barnsley. Huddersfield lost 3-1 at Preston, Reading beat Luton 3-0 and Middlesbrough’s Assomabalonga earned them a point at QPR. West Brom stayed top winning at Hull, Patrick Bamford scored in Leeds’ 2-1 at home to Blackburn. Brentford keep improving and beat Wigan away 3-0, Sheffield Wednesday and Swansea shared four goals and Fulham won 1-0 at St Andrews.

    Naby Sarr had another poor game. He does not attack the ball enough and although 6ft 4inch hardly leaves the ground. Apart from a defensive weakness his lack of attack is also confirmed by his relative poor record when we have set plays into the opposition’s penalty area, Pearce and Bauer (when he was with us) would each get 2 or 3 headed goals a season. We need to get a tall central defender in January as Sarr is not of the standard we require in the Championship and Pearce will miss some games due to injury and suspensions.
