MK Dons 2 Charlton Athletic 1
Other than the first 15 minutes when we took a deserved lead, that was another shocker. Three games in and one point, our worst start to a season for 8 years, and our worst third tier start since 1928, oh and out of the League Cup.
There has not been one endearing feature thus far with all of us just hoping that we click on the official website and we’ve signed six new players. This hope against a quickly changing tune from our rock n’ roll owner.
The football we are playing is dreadful. We are being outplayed, making errors, our attacking play is non-existent, there is no cohesion, and the fitness levels look way down to me. Dobson and Clare are squad players at best. Gunter is an embarrassment. Can someone explain to me how he got over a 100 international caps? His positional sense is that of the Titanic.
Have no fear because secret weapon Ben Watson was brought on to help us chase the game and he wasn’t good enough to lace Dean Lewington’s boots.
I am trying to keep a lid on it because I’m hoping this post doesn’t age well as the season progresses, but this is by far the weakest squad we have started a season with going back all through the Duchatelet years.
Now we have Washington injured and confirmation that Inniss is the new Chuks Aneke. Something does not add up, and I would be far happier if we were losing but I could see a pattern forming, a style, a presence, anything.
I am sure tomorrow through will be beautiful day and the sun will be shining….
Mr Positivity: “I thought we were very good for the first 20 minutes. I thought we looked bright, I thought we had good movement, I thought we had the momentum for the game.”
