Valley Pass Live

I’ve been watching games on iFollow and Valley Pass for a fair while, we have been allowed to buy live coverage since 2017 as overseas’ fans. Yet while grateful to be closer to the ‘match day experience’ there was nearly always picture, sound, buffering or latency issues and the home viewing experience was mostly perfunctory and not necessarily pleasurable. Taking the emotion out of the result and team performance of course.

I tended mostly to listen just to the commentary, but the live pictures have steadily gotten better, notably last season after lockdown when it simply had to pick up it’s game.

Charlton Athletic 1 Doncaster Rovers 3

A bleak end to an oppressive and very fatiguing week for Addicks’ fans. Typical of course that we’d lose today as a 1,000 spectators were allowed into The Valley to watch their team for the first time since March 7th.

Lee Bowyer saying walking out onto the pitch to those 1,000 supporters gave him goosebumps, gave me goosebumps, and in some positive news it sounded as all went off very well with today’s ‘test case.’

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.

Began life today. Click here to see it if you haven’t already.

It’s early days of course, and news is limited in July, although late this evening the club posted confirmation that Lee Bowyer will be Assistant Manager and as expected Johnnie Jackson will take up the role as First Team Player/Coach. (more)

On first view the OS is an improvement, cleaner and efficient, no more, no less. It is simple and not snazzy, but moreover I’m pleased for the Comms team who now have the ability to control content, design and reliability and hopefully make it more fan friendly. Certainly the Twitter page run by the Comms team is excellent. Hopefully the old generic, ad-ridden site has been buried forever.
