Oldham Athletic 3 Charlton Athletic 4

Andy Nelson would’ve been proud..

One for the oldies that. A swashbuckling performance but leaving gaps at the back to keep it interesting up at Oldham yesterday. According to one observer we played like a troupe of red arrows for the first half hour but after that it was a little bit of a circus troupe as we let Oldham back in. Nonetheless for those Addicks who made the trip I’m sure it was a very enjoyable day out in Lancashire and they were witness to another fine 3 points for Robinson’s side. 

We dominated early and unusually got our just rewards. Not once but twice as Ricky Holmes opened the scoring with a 30-yard scorcher. It might be worth the Valley Pass season fee alone that. Then the impressive Fosu scored his first Addicks goal and performed an apple for the teacher like knee slide. 21 minutes gone and all good.

One in, three out

That was the net result of Charlton’s transfer deadline activity. What happened to two players for each position? And the fabled third striker? The biggest concern for me, other than a lack of numbers, is the shift of experience level in the last few weeks has been seismic.

Novak, Crofts, Tex and even dare I say it Watt, are all players that have been around the block, 100+ appearances. Fosu looks good but is raw, and as for Joe Dodoo, he has played half a season at Rangers, scored 3 goals and rarely played an entire 90 minutes.

It’s honestly ground hog day, with Robinson’s timely chest thumping of how good our youngsters are, that they are our DNA blah blah. Turning down offers from Arsenal, like Wenger hasn’t got enough on his plate. Give it a rest Karl.
