Stockport replay on TV

The FA Cup 2nd Round replay has been chosen by ITV to be shown live. ITV4 to be exact. Woop, woop.

There are only two replays and both will be on the box. Dagenham & Redbridge and Gillingham is the other. Our game will be at 7.45pm on Wednesday 7th, December.

Charlton Athletic 2 Stockport County 2

One foot in the 3rd Round draw, and then a Stockport 97th minute equalizer gives us another game we don’t need.

Another abysmal performance from Ben Garner’s side. It was a rubbish start and a rubbish end with various elements of rubbish in between.

Stockley banned for 3 games

As articulate and intelligent as Jayden Stockley comes across off the pitch, he has shown us before that he doesn’t always take those brain cells onto the field.

Case in point last Saturday in the 22nd minute when a supposed intentional swinging elbow has had him today retrospectively sent off and banned for 3 games.

Stevenage 1 Charlton Athletic 1 (Charlton win 5-4 on pens)

I know little or nothing of last night’s dramatic cup victory as I have spent the entire week moving around Nevada and California.

During yesterday’s game I was in the Californian desert at a gigantic casino in meetings trying to grab quick looks at my phone for updates from Hertfordshire.

Charlton Athletic 4 Coalville Town 1

Quite comfortable this afternoon in the end and another four goals scored at The Valley. Great credit to Coalville and especially Charlton fan Jake Eggleton. I hope their supporters enjoyed their afternoon and they win promotion at the end of the season.

Taking coals to Coalville

The former coal mining town of Coalville Town in Leicestershire will visit the Addicks for the FA Cup 1st Round proper on the weekend of November 4-7th.

The Coalville players enjoyed their name coming out of that hat against us, and I only hope for their sakes the draw entices home fans out of their homes and to the game.

Walsall 0 Charlton Athletic 1

Ben Garner didn’t seem too thrilled by this game yesterday, but his youthful team which also included DJ and JFC put the Addicks through to the 3rd Round of this cup for the first time since 2015.

Total credit to the 367 Addicks who made the journey. Their loyalty rewarded after DJ neatly finished in front of them after excellent work by young Leaburn after 57 minutes.

Charlton Athletic 1 Queens Park Rangers 1 (5-3 on pens)

I imagine those that went tonight would have enjoyed that. I did and I was in Tampa looking at ottomans, armoires and chaise longues, from where I was checking the latest score.

Almost as many QPR fans as Addicks at The Valley tonight, so credit to them. The ones we saw on the train back from Preston were very affable although very disappointed in their first day defeat at Blackburn. I guess we are all a little intrigued to see how Mike Beale does there over there this season.

Addicks’ U18 go out of the FA Youth Cup

I had the FA Youth Cup 5th Round game on in the office today and it was a thoroughly enjoyable watch. Our U18’s went down 0-2 at home to Brighton which was no shame as their Cat One academy play in the Premier League and knocked Man City out in the last round.

Brighton are also known for hoovering up young talent from the lower leagues, and abroad including recently our young ‘keeper James Beadle. Ex-Addicks’ academy player Jeremy Sarmiento is also on the Seagull’s books.

Hartlepool United 2 Charlton Athletic 2 (5-4 on pens)

I hadn’t had previously bothered with the Pizza 🍕 Trophy but in recent days the pepperoni started to stir and we could all see that arch in the close distance, but another collapse at the quarter final hurdle. We can’t even beat League Two opposition to make our first semi-final for 37 years.

Charlton Athletic 0 Norwich City 1

So just the one chance of a Cup Final now after exiting the FA Cup at The Valley this afternoon in front of a decent and noisy crowd.

First and foremost we should be proud of the performance, but we should have won, and showed how toothless this squad is in front of goal without the two players that have scored half of our goals so far this season.

Cup distraction

Cup runs are not two words that have been in Addicks’ fans vocabulary in recent years, but it is January and we are still feature in two and they provide a welcome distraction from the league this week.

We haven’t played a Premier League club at The Valley since we were relegated from the top tier in 2007. Norwich City visit in the FA Cup next Sunday when I expect Jackson to put out the strongest team he can.

Boxing Day game called off

The Addicks’ Boxing Day clash at Wimbledon, the nearest we get to a derby these days, has been postponed due to Covid.

Sparrows Lane was closed earlier in the week due to new cases, although even yesterday Charlton were selling additional tickets for Sunday’s game, and Jacko was hopeful that Akin Famewo, Conor Washington and Josh Davison could all return after 7 days of isolation and no symptoms.

Gateshead 0 Charlton Athletic 2

It was all about the result this. We are not the best at negotiating banana skins, especially when combined with games being shown live on the box.

I didn’t see the game as I was travelling and working but have caught upoin it. Sounded as if the Heed gave us some wobbles at the back, with Stephen Henderson in what was much needed fine form.

Cup game on TV

Bit of a shame really as I’d imagine a night in either Newcastle or Manchester would have appealed to many Addicks, but the game has been chosen for TV and at the worst time if you were planning on going. Mind you one could now make a weekend of it!
