Cheltenham Town 2 Charlton Athletic 2

From Accrington to Cheltenham. July to May. The rarely good, the often bad, and the pretty ugly season has come to an end much to all of our relief.

It wasn’t a bad game in all honesty, but for the umpteenth time we couldn’t finish a lesser side off, and defensive frailty made three points one. Much like Accrington last July.

It gets from worse to worse still.

Ben Garner said that we are progressing. This is not progression, this is regression – our results, our football, our position, our attendances, our pride.

Cheltenham Town 1 Charlton Athletic 1

When Addicks’ fans invaded the pitch at the Jonny Rocks Stadium after Chuks Aneke scrambled in an undeserved equalizer in the 94th minute it kind of summed up where we now stand as a football club.

Ex-Premier League staple, upper end Championship stadium and by most accord a club too big to be playing in the 3rd tier. Well, I think the more we accept where we are the more of a chance the club has to reset and start again.

Well that little boost of optimism lasted all of five minutes, in fact Watson couldn’t even get the opening second right when he kicked off when everyone else took the knee. Watson’s afternoon did not get any better.

Our worst start to a season for 15 years and just out of the League One relegation places on goal difference after Cheltenham Town, on their first ever visit to The Valley, gave us a footballing lesson.

League One 2021/22 Review – Part IV

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.

Reasons to be cheerful

…. And breath.

I’ve spent a lot of this week pouring though record books to see when was the last time we were 0-4 down at half-time at The Valley, well that and having a few bets on the Cheltenham Races. Overall both exercises have been quite depressing.
