Alfie to go

And good riddance. I’m getting pissed off with these young kids being schooled and nurtured by the club, get given an opportunity, play 20 odd games and want off.

No respect to sign a contract to give the club and it’s coaches that invested a lot of time and money to educate you, something back. You were literally playing in Solihull 14 months ago. No thanks or foresight. You’re not even fit son.

Stoke City 3 Charlton Athletic 1

I was on an airplane for the duration of the game. Sounds as if I was the lucky one. Sounded as if there were no marks of encouragement today. We are in a relegation scrap, no doubts at all.

Stoke have had a good home record since their managerial change and have a squad of players belying their league position but if you play crap, crap is what you get and we need to quickly file this one and move on because Tuesday will be harder still.

Charlton Athletic 3 Stoke City 1

I love this team. Lee Bowyer’s team. Well, team’s because this is the second one he has had to build. Bowyer and his coaching team, and not forgetting miracle worker Steve Gallen, have put together a group of players of such energy and gusto. They are almost rewriting the ‘Charlton way’. Look at that picture of Conor Gallagher. He’s only been here just over a week. The personality of this team is to die for. It really is.

Sheffield Wednesday’s pre-season was thrown a wobbly when Steve Bruce upped and left for Newcastle. Currently Lee Bullen is in caretaker charge for his third time.

Nathan Jones leaves Luton

Despite being a staunch promotion rival you have to feel sorry for Luton Town fans after Nathan Jones left for Stoke City.

Addicks fans know how ambitious Jones is. Money I don’t think has ever been his drive, just the passion to work hard and improve. He left our coaching staff in 2013 to take up a role at Brighton, who were on the verge of good things. His two and a half years at Albion magnified his reputation and he took his first managerial role at Luton 3 years ago, and has had unprecedented success.
