Man U home. What was the score? 0-4
An absolute bastard hangover prevented me from going to the pub to watch another pile of crap being served up at the Valley this afternoon.
It really is painful and I'm not even going to the matches. My mate phoned me after the game - in fact it was during the game as he left early, I had to tell him about Perry getting sent off - and after slagging them off for 5 minutes he then tried to convince me to come home for the Palace game. No way.
I was glad Anderson started and I hope his confidence is not completely shot next week. But it was another spineless 4-0 defeat, the 7th time we have let in four this season! We have now taken 8 points from a possible 36 and looking at the table the most galling thing for me is that we are still only 6 points behind 7th place. Depressing.
And depressing is the word. The Net Addicks board
is full of melancholy and can you blame us. Even Curbs has joined in: “It has been torturous. We have taken a lot of beatings and it is not good enough. I have been looking at as many players as I can in all areas. We will be looking at every area to try and strengthen for next season.”
So, hopefully we can at least look forward to a busy summer or is it just empty words to shift some season tickets? Whatever, Curbs seems intent on making some changes, I proposed a clear out
a couple of week's back and this will be a real test for the manager as he is feeling genuine pressure for perhaps the first time.
For someone who has been at the club for so long Curbs knows Charlton fans will expect nothing less than spilt blood, guts and 110% effort, pride and commitment in our final game of the season. A result on that Sunday will send Addicks home happy with a summer of exciting change ahead. I don't want to think about the alternative.
