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.

🔝5️⃣ Back in the saddle to finish off the last few 2021 Top Fives. Plenty more couch time, sorry I mean working from home in 2021, and many good TV shows to binge. Here were my Top Five 2021 Favourite TV Shows 📺:

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!

My 2020 Top Five Favourite TV Shows

🔝5️⃣ Plenty of time in 2020 to watch the box you’d think, although I have to say for very long periods I struggled so much separating work from home that I would settle for something mindless over immersing myself into a proper series.

My 2019 Top Five Favourite TV Shows

I love a good TV series like the next man. There is so much good stuff about these days and with Disney joining Netflix, Amazon, Hulu and others in competing with all the mainstream providers there is a battle for good content.

So, onto my next 2019 Top Five picks and my Top Five Favourite TV Shows that I watched in 2019, which doesn’t mean at all that they were all first aired last year.

Sky have taken a shine to us

Little old Charlton appear to have a new fan. Sky Sports today announced that three more of our games will be live on the box. The Hull home game has moved back from Saturday, December 14th to the Friday night, three days after we play Huddersfield.

Then over Christmas and New Year Sky have chosen the Derby and Swansea away games to show as well. This well and truly mucks around with Addicks plans if they were intending on going, and will I am sure damage travelling numbers which have been magnificent so far this season.

Miami weekender

A quick weekend in Miami to meet the exhausted-other-half and our little Edwina the Eagle daughter after their week skiing in Colorado. Whilst I made the short hop across from Bermuda this morning, they had to suffer a midnight flight and a red-eye from Denver.

A pretty quiet weekend should ensue and a welcome break from work, which is currently relentless and unsympathetic to doing much else including sleeping through the bloody night.

My 2018 Top Five Favourite TV Shows

To coincide with tonight’s Golden Globes, I thought I’d push this one out.

I watch less and less telly, real time TV anyway and Bermuda unsuprisingly is light years away from Catch Up and iPlayer etc but Netflix, Hula and iTunes are our friend and I can sit on the couch or on a plane and binge through a season of a TV show easily.

I’m always on the hunt for recommendations by the way, but these were my Top Five Favourite TV Shows that I watched last year, bearing in mind I may have been late to jump on them.

Telly Addicks

I was thinking yesterday how nice it was that I’ve been able to watch the Addicks live on the television for their last four games. Except we’ve lost all four, and in fact the two before that, both of those were 0-3 defeats. At least we scored yesterday for the only time in those six games. I am sure there are Premier and Championship teams that will claim worst TV records, but I’d like to see them, and this isn’t a recent phenomenon remember.

Anyways, I’m here to list some positives. Yes I know, until the old scroat either sells or keels over, then positivity is very thin on the ground, but there was a fair bit on Saturday to be hopeful for.

Sunderland away at lunchtime

Perfect. 600 mile round trip on opening day and because our new friends Sky fancy it, the game will kick off at 12.30pm. Nice for those of you that wanted to see the team in the flesh on opening day. Wait, we may even have new owners sat in the stand the old scrote in his laboratory watching on his Belgian telly..

This is followed by our new big rivals Shrewsbury Town at The Valley the week after, then the club’s first ever trip to Accrington Stanley and a game under the lights in SE7 home to Peterborough.

Do not disturb

The first proper day of the World Cup. The do not disturb sign is hanging around my neck.

As suspected the Bermuda TV coverage is worst than terrible. Not sure where they stole the pictures from, but sounds as if the commentator is doing it from his sofa, and there is no pre or post game punditry and the half-time show consists of crowd scenes interrupted by adverts from local companies who have each thrown in about a hundred bucks to ‘sponsor’ it. Please don’t let me hear you moan about Martin Keown and Glenn Hoddle..

Also, during the game the screen has no score or time on it, which is a very disconcerting and a nightmare if I need a wee. Who knows what the score is and how long is left, doubt if the commentator knows either.

My 2017 Top Five Favourite TV Shows

Next on the agenda of my Top Fives is TV Shows. Somehow over the years, not helped by having just two cinema screens on the island, I rarely watch a movie, but I love to get stuck into a TV series. By the way I’m always looking for recommendations, so any suggestions are much appreciated.

Bradford City 0 Charlton Athletic 1

Define a season..

A fantastic result today up at Bradford, one of those that can define a season. Konsa and Sarr, playing at left back instead of Dasilva, gave us a very solid base, and it sounded as if everyone put a proper shift in for the shirt in woeful weather conditions.

When JFC scored I don’t think I have celebrated a goal listening to the radio commentary like that for some time. It was a great time to score, but then Ben Amos produced a Bobby Bolder type performance to keep Bradford out allowing us to take the 3 points back down south.

Crumlin Valley Pass

The much lauded arrival of Valley Pass collapsed under the interest of Addicks wanted to see live action from Ireland this evening of the first pre-season friendly against Crumlin United. The official site crashed and despite eventual You Tube coverage, for me at least, Valley Pass failed to get off the ground. Unlike Charlton who won 5-0

Fortunately the club hadn’t been banging on about the new premium service much (!), but this little roll-out exercise wasn’t a great way of getting fans to part with £60 as it struggled with both bandwidth and traffic.

My 2016 Top Five Favourite TV Shows

I’m a big TV series watcher, and there are some great shows out there both sides of the Atlantic. I often watch them belatedly taking recommendations from friends and then downloading whole seasons for airplane journeys or quiet evenings. I’m always up for new shows, so I’d like to hear any new suggestions.

It was tough to pick a Top Five, but I eventually did so here are my Top Five Favourite TV Shows that I watched in 2016:
