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.

George Dobson POTY

He got my vote and a large majority of everyone else’s, George Dobson came a long way this season after being frozen out by Nigel Adkins to win the Addicks’ 2021/22 Player of the Year.

Just 24-years-old, Dobson wasn’t only the best of a bad bunch in this turgid of season’s, he was actually very good, and capped an excellent season by scoring a corker at Rotherham a few weeks back.

Wigan Athletic 2 Charlton Athletic 1

A much better performance than Tuesday but the same result at Wigan this afternoon.

With no Aneke, Washington, Stockley, or Scott Fraser we were always going top be up against it. The assumption was that Famewo missed out due to loan numbers. Jacko kept to his 3-5-2 but there were more centre-backs on the bench than in the team. I’m all for having a philosophy, but you also need the players.

We can question recruitment again on this front, or any sense of long-term planning which doesn’t seem to be Sandgaard’s forte….

Kanu signs pro contract

As we get our heads around Mason Burstow being sold to Chelsea after 612 minutes in a first team shirt, the club were quick to offer prolific youth goal scorer Daniel Kanu a professional contract until at least 2024.

The Dartford based 17-year-old has already scored 31 goals this season representing the Addicks at U23, U19 and U17 level and has been on fire in recent weeks helping the U18’s to the 5th Round of the FA Youth Cup
