Jes Rak-Sakyi wins POTY

Let’s be honest the best, most consistent, game-changing player won the Addicks’ Player of the Year last night.

The Palace lad was a joy to watch and a credit to himself and his parent club. I’ll be content if those lot from Croydon lend us their next rising star next season.

Rak-Sakyi – POTY?

Jes Rak-Sakyi was today nominated for the EFL League One Young Player of the Season, and deservedly so. Ipswich’s Cameron Humphreys and Plymouth’s Bali Mumba round out the list.

I should also acknowledge Zach Mitchell who was nominated for the L1 Apprentice of the Year. Great achievement.

Portsmouth 1 Charlton Athletic 3

We do like a day out in Pompey don’t we..

Well, well. Happy New Year. What a pleasant surprise, and it will give us all a lift, but we have to now use this as a platform to move forward in what is a very important month.

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 0 Brighton & Hove Albion 0 (4-3 on pens)

This team….. Just when you want to shun them, give them the cold shoulder, they come up and give you a big fat slobbering kiss!

What a performance, one filled with heart and hope. I didn’t want to use that last word, but it spilled out. There is a lot to happen still off the pitch, whether sooner or later, but it was a night for us not to forget all of the issues, but a night to saviour, and to remember what it is to support this football club.

Charlton Athletic 4 Ipswich Town 4

We have had some great games with the Tractor Boys over the years, but that was just mad.

It was a game in which at times we were outplayed, and for periods on top. Defensively it was pretty shambolic, from both sides, but what great character to come back from 2-4 after 95 minutes.

Charlton Athletic 1 Derby County 0

Talk about a game of two halves.

We should have been dead and buried at the break, at least 0-3 down with O’Connell the pinnacle of a dreadful bunch and only Joe Wollacott showing any signs of life with a terrific performance that kept us in the game.

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.

Rotherham United 0 Charlton Athletic 1

Ahhhh. Enjoy that one Addicks. Out of the blue came a very well deserved win on the road against a very good side.

A solid defensive display with another dominating performance from MacGillivray with Pearce once again relishing and coming out on top of a stiff battle against a team that pep your box with a range of balls.

Charlton Athletic 4 Doncaster Rovers 0

Couldn’t ask for much more than that.

Doncaster were poor, but Jacko’s team executed an astute game plan, pressed and harried, got forward in numbers creating loads of chances and ended with another important clean sheet.

Sunderland 0 Charlton Athletic 1

Unrecognizable that performance. Full of core traits we hold dear – passion, spirit, commitment. Since 1905 it is all you can demand as a Charlton fan.

Sunderland had won every league game at home this season, and then up on the LNER comes this rag tag of bunch Addicks led by a man dressed like the bloke from the Milk Tray advert. They must hate us.

George Dobson signs

I can’t complain that I’ve never heard of him as I was calling for young players proven at this level that I’d never heard off!

George Dobson fits that re-build, released by Sunderland today, the 23-year old defensive holding midfielder that impressed on loan at AFC Wimbledon this past season joins on a 2-year deal.
