Well I never....
A lazy evening after another day of decorating and I was perusing the internet and did something I don't often do, which was look beyond the Premiership table and to the lower leagues below and blow me down Crystal Palarse made the play-off's and celebrated by getting hammered by Watford 3-0
at Sellout. Oh how I laughed. Adrian Boothroyd or Iain Dowie for manager then?
Cheeky chappie and proper twat Simon Jordan recently said in 4-4-2
magazine that he would like to give the Charlton Chairman "a kick up the arse."
Maybe he should practice on his team first.
Then to round things off nicely before I opened a freezing cold bottle of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, I noticed that Millwall had been relegated
after finishing 2nd from bottom. Just 7,000 witnessed their last game so no wonder not many people knew about their sad demise.
Congratulations to Leyton Orient
though after their first promotion in 36 years. Sadly their last gasp victory sent Jim Smith's Oxford tumbling towards the Conference after 44 years in the Football League.
Tomorrow we go to the Theatre of Dreams for Curbs' last game in charge. I understand that travelling Addicks will be holding up red cards to celebrate, seems a strange thing to do, old fashioned singing would surely be a better send off. Nonetheless we go there with absolutely no pressure whatsoever. We have never beaten Utd in the Premiership and wouldn't that be a great way to end Curbs' 15 years in charge?
If you haven't seen this, then there was a nice interview with Curbs in today's Independent
The game is on PPV here tomorrow so I will be in the pub for breakfast before playing football afterwards.
