I don't want to labour a point, but....
I can only assume that one would have to be either mad, sad, have money to burn or all three to have gone to both Gillingham
the weekend (go on, tell me it was you). I have made it quite obvious on these pages my views on pre-season friendlies, but 0-0 against Gillingham on a Friday night sounded like torture and then there was another turgid performance at Kenilworth Road on Saturday when we drew 1-1.
It was bad enough (and sad enough) listening to the last 10 minutes on Friday on the BBC London website 4,000 miles away with Carl Leaburn co-commentating. According to the O great one (66 goals in 375 matches), the most exciting part of the evening was when Andy Hessenthaler rugby tackled an Addicks fan on the pitch at the final whistle. We Charlton fans know how to make our own entertainment.
There sounded like little else to cheer and although heartened by Curbs words today about "bringing in at least two more players," as the calender turns to August I am starting to get worried about the quality & strength of our squad, particulary compared to our competitors.
I, like every other Addick is getting desperate for a News Flash Bulletin
telling us of a new signing.
