Charlton Athletic 0 Sheffield Wednesday 0
That was a bit of a non event at least on the pitch.
It was however a marvellous sight to see fans in the seats, home and away ends. It was a decent attendance for an August what with ambition seemingly being watered down by the owner.
On the owner, that is quite some ego to use the platform of the pitch to wallow in you own personal hobby. Dropping the Red Red Robin was a very poor choice and I trust that we will be back to normal on Tuesday.
The game blowed as a spectacle. Not one shot on goal the entire 90 minutes. Stockley perhaps came closest, although the most chances fell to new no. 10 Albie Morgan of which all were skied.
Bannon, as unlikeable as ever, had Wednesday’s best chance late in the 2nd half but skewed wide.
We were better in the 2nd half, but it was a hard watch, a combination of a lack of quality and options plus an awful lot of long ball.
I too could not fathom any real positive characteristics of a high tempo game that Nigel has promised.
The positives were a clean sheet headlined by Famewo and Inniss. Stockley who was named captain also had a good game. There is plenty of time to get better, and a little time to add a few more players.
Nigel Adkins: “The atmosphere was fantastic, Thomas the owner has started it all off as well hasn’t he with the song….”
