Cambridge United 1 Charlton Athletic 2

We played some really nice stuff in the first half. 4-4-3 again and we played with a bright confidence on the front foot collecting a lot of second balls.

Second half was a different story as Cambridge remembered they are fighting for their lives, but we held on for what I thought was an enjoyable win.

McGrandles moves out on loan

Midfielder Conor McGrandles has joined Cambridge United on loan until the end of the season.

The 27-year old moved to The Valley in the summer and has started just 2 league games due to a couple of freakish injuries and then when he has had the opportunity, he hasn’t in all honesty impressed.

Charlton Athletic 1 Cambridge United 1

A frustrating watch, but a fair result yesterday.

Lots of possession, but little to show for it, and we just weren’t able to overload attacking areas like we did at will on Tuesday.

Cambridge United 0 Charlton Athletic 2

It didn’t mean a lot, and I paid the game cursory attention from Barbados where I was watching my daughter at a swim meet, which had far more importance to me, but you never sniff at a win and a win it was.

Charlton Athletic 2 Cambridge United 0

There’s a fair number of North American West Coast Addicks, and I got to feel their pain today when the alarm woke me early in San Francisco to sit down to watch the game. The other inconvenience is that after a very satisfactory win it’s possibly a little too early to crack the beers open!

Actually that win was more than satisfying, it was a big win against a side that made it very difficult for us, carved out chances and drew us into an ugly booking-fest match.

And the final episode of my pre-season look at the league competition.

Using the bookies as my guide, Part I was the considered promotion favourites, Part II was play-off hopefuls, Part III those in mid-table with ambitions and this final Part V are the teams expected to have a relegation battle on their hands.

A big final day all around us in League One and in The Championship. Unsure to why we get Sunday all to ourselves.

Sheffield Wednesday were relegated a year after they really should have been as Wayne Rooney’s Derby County survived by the skin of their teeth thanks to a heartbreaking late goal for Cardiff that meant that Rotherham also dropped despite leading in Wales for so much of the game.

I had Soccer Saturday on and Paul Merson spent the whole of the first half complaining. I don’t know what sort of game he was expecting at Pride Park, but he was a little bit more present in the 2nd half, after a word from the director I guess.
