Charlton Athletic 2 Lincoln City 1

An important win. The Portsmouth result would have meant nothing unless we followed it up today.

We deserved the win, but true to form we somehow almost blew it at the end. As the weather deteriorated so did our confidence and Lincoln came within inches of equalizing as we played an unexplainable 9 minutes of injury time.

Lincoln City 0 Charlton Athletic 0

Another draw, and a clean sheet. That was the only positive to take from a dreadful game.

Sat watching emotionless, I realized that this is what we are. Bottom half of the 3rd Division playing our part in desperately boring games. Stinking refereeing, stinking football. One shot on goal each. Boom 💥

Running out of excuses

Is tomorrow a must win? Game 12 of the season.

Losing or in our case drawing is a habit. We couldn’t even hang on in the Pizza Cup on Tuesday. I was needlessly annoyed after the game, and despite what Scott Marshall said this was not a youthful team, and it was shocking that after dominating we still lost to a team 3rd bottom of L2 with just one win all season.

Gilbey to Lincoln?

Alex Gilbey has a few suitors as he decides, or more likely Ben Garner decides if the midfielder’s future is away from The Valley.

I suspect it will be demand of the owner that Garner moves one on from his first team squad to make room for a replacement, likely to be a left-sided centre-half I’m led to believe.

Welcome Conor McGrandles

A surprise late signing tonight when not long after the club unveiled it’s new website, the first news article which looked like a test page, announced a new signing.

That is 26-year old midfield playmaker Conor McGrandles. Falkirk born McGrandles turned down a new contract with Lincoln City and in a ‘Dale Stephens move’ signed a three-year contract with Charlton after declaring he was homesick.

Lincoln City 2 Charlton Athletic 1

Nigel Adkins future must now be untenable.

Enough of the excuses. Twelve games and still no clear system or pattern of play. No energy, horribly unorganized at the back, ponderous going forward and overrun in midfield. 14 days on the training ground and Adkins is patently unable to organize, present a vision or effect how we play. Similarly from the touchline during the games.

A crunch week for Adkins

Two weeks without a game. I kind of think it has dragged, but Adkins squad go again tomorrow when they travel to Lincoln, four places above us in the table.

This international break has followed the same pattern as the last one. A desperately needed win, followed by a conclusive home victory in the Pizza Trophy and then a wait with promises of plenty of work on the training pitch to come.

Charlton Athletic 3 Lincoln City 1

So in this most forlorn of all season’s, when our home record resembles desperate relegation years, tonight the Addicks stretched out the fun and anticipation to the final game of the season by managing to beat 3rd placed Lincoln City 3-1.

Charlton Athletic, the grandmasters of kicking you in the teeth, now face champions Hull on Sunday when a win combined with not a win for both Portsmouth or Oxford will take us into the play-off’s.

Lincoln game off

Our game next Tuesday at home to Lincoln City has been postponed due a Covid outbreak. The Imps were forced to close their training ground and had already called off their home game against MK Dons tomorrow.

That’s the third game we’ve seen postponed due to Covid, and none called off by us, despite some our own players contacting it. Interesting that their request coincides with a bad run of form.

Lincoln City 2 Charlton Athletic 0

The most offside goal ever and a dreadful 2nd half performance led us to another defeat today and gave Lincoln a deserved win.

Thomas Sandgaard’s talk of Europe looks quite the ambition. Baby steps are required along with the stability Sandgaard will provide plus hopefully a few more much needed players that will give us a chance in this division.

League One 2020/21 Preview – Part II

We’ll push on with this even though we are two games in. For Part II we are moving south to Lincolnshire as I continue my preview of our League One competitors.

Lincoln City comfortably survived their first season in tier 3 for over 20 years and will approach this season confident of further improvement under Michael Appleton.
