It's our house, so lets make it our party
The Valley may well have the 'Sold Out'
signs up for Tuesday's Liverpool game but it looks as if we will be overrun with Yeovil fans at the Cup game on Saturday. There are reports of many Glovers' fans having tickets in home areas which will be a distraction we will not need. I am sure causing trouble is not on the agenda for Yeovil fans but we have seen the cocktail of away fans in home areas, a tense game with a lot at stake and a passionate crowd go awry before.
Let's hope the game passes off with a party atmosphere but with us having the cake and eating it at the end of the match.
I wonder if Curbs will go for a 4-4-2 formation, I hope he does and includes Jeffers up front with Bartlett, foresaking Hughes to the bench.
As mentioned before I'm on a stag weekend so won't be attending and I know there are numerous reasons why others won't be as well but I do find it slightly discouraging that despite the importance that we all put on the Cup the interest watching us progressing into the last 16 is neglible.
Kevin Lisbie showed his, ahem, passion in Monday's night reserve match against Leicester
by getting sent off after retaliating to a challenge by Leicester's Alan Sheehan. The chances of the club getting the suspension overturned
appear somewhat slight a bit like my patience with him.
Neil McCafferty is the lastest player to go out on loan to get some experience away from The Valley in an effort to prove to the Charlton management that he has a future as a first team player. Rushden & Diamonds are the recipent of the Republic of Ireland youth International described by their caretaker manager Barry Hunter as "not the biggest boy but he is a very good footballer in central midfield who will put his foot in."
Here is more insight on the move from Wyn Grant
The transfer window, which has proved a non-event for many managers, is running out and it seems likely now that Curbs will keep his hands in his pockets if the right players are not available for the right prices. However I do suspect there might be a last gasp bid to tempt Nottm Forest with a bid for Michael Dawson.
Lets hope everyone going tomorrow is in full voice, because you know they will be. Come on, it's a big game, lets give the boys the support they deserve after recent performances.
Come on you Addicks.
