Blackburn home. What was the score? Lost 2-0
The game somewhat came second today as it did to my bodyclock. I didn't think for a minute last night that I would need to set my alarm for a 11.15am kick off, even imagined myself waking early and watching Mourinho throw his medal into the crowd
. Why did he do that? Shows a bit of disrepect if you ask me.
So what time did I wake up? 12.33pm to be exact. Christ, leapt out of bed, put the tele' on, saw we were losing, yawned and put the kettle on. Settle down with cuppa and Powell scores into his own net. Further frowning and yawning.
A few minutes later the commentator said something like: "Alan Curbishley will be very disappointed that his last ever Charlton home game ends in defeat."
Cue mad rush to put the computer on....
We were of course terrible, although the Curbs' bombshell surely had an impact on the players. Blackburn were all the things that we haven't been for the majority of the season. Progressive, precise, energetic and hungry.
Lloyd Sam impressed me in the time he was on and I'm personally glad that Andersen was in goal but of course all of this was secondary to the announcement made before the game by Richard Murray.
It was quite a day in the Premiership, not only our news but with Chelsea being confirmed as champions and the terrible news of Rooney's injury
. Owen also struggled on his first game back for Newcastle today. Not the way we hoped to learn that Darren Bent (barring injury himself) would almost certainly guarantee his place on the plane to Germany.
