Charlton Athletic 2 Barnsley 0

A very enjoyable day at The Valley yesterday with my son and a handful of mates. Pre-match I had a couple of beers with Dave, and then outside the ground bumped into fellow Bermuda Addick Matt.

The watching Charlton experience has been turned on it’s head since Christmas with whatever going on off the pitch for once being over-shadowed by what’s happening on it

Manchester United 3 Charlton Athletic 0

Very proud of the team and the fans this morning. I hope everyone gets back safely and the smiles stay on faces for a while.

It was testament to how well we were playing that Erik ten Hag felt the need to bring on Marcus Rashford, Christian Eriksen and Casemiro at 60 minutes. In return we brought on Eoghan O’Connell, Aaron Henry and Jack Payne.

Oxford United 3 Charlton Athletic 1

Where do you start. Or put another way, where does it end?

That was shocking. A first 45 minutes up there with the worst I have ever seen. Slightly better 2nd half, but we are so fragile, well and useless, at the back that Oxford scored from their first real attack after the break and it was another straightforward loss.

Dobson made captain

An interesting but correct decision from Dean Holden to make George Dobson captain over Jayden Stockley.

Dobson is a thoroughly better leader, and someone who I think plays in a position that has more influence on the game and his teammates. If I did a straw vote I would say Dobbo is most fan’s favourite player, and that substance over style.

Charlton Athletic 1 Peterborough United 1

The team that never draws draws against a team that does it a lot.

A very dull first half, a much better 2nd half and a draw probably a fair result. We missed a couple of gilt-edged chances but they hit the bar twice and Maynard-Brewer made a very good double save in the first half.

What do we know?

Not for the first time, the festive season has us looking out for Charlton Breaking News!

So, what do we know? That something is cooking behind the scenes is without doubt, and it looks as if there are at least two interested parties. The appointments of Messers Rodwell, Scott and Warwick with Methven as a go-between are obviously one party, although it is unclear to where that money has come from because I don’t expect Sandgaard has contributed a cent.

Another day of intrigue and mystery

Where to begin….

As they say, there is a lot to unpack here.

Charlton owner Thomas Sandgaard today appointed four “experienced professionals in senior roles at the club.” (more)
