Worst team ever
It never says a lot about a season when you reach almost it’s closure and post match talk turns to me and my mates digging deep into our memories to remember similarly bad sides or players that were worse.
Worst team ever, best team ever conversations are always subjective and romance of an age and tricks on the memory play games. Was such and such really that bad? Nah, I quite liked him really. Oh come on he was bloody useless. Yes, you get the sketch.
This team, this season has sucked, but as incompetent as they are I find it hard to dislike this team more than the one that Pardew took down or Russell Slade left us with. I was very young at the time and almost certainly a little more patient, but that relegated 1979/80 team was truly dreadful as well.
One way to judge how bad a team was, is their final league position and there has been much discussion amongst Addicks to how low that has ever been in our history, and will this season’s mob take the title of lowest ever Charlton finish.
Well, thanks to great work by the guys at the Charlton Athletic Museum they have done all of the research for us.
Read this thread to the bottom, and take joy in it can only get worse 😉
The Museum is open 11am to 1pm on home match days (Saturday 3pm kick offs) and 11am to 3pm every Friday.
