reading away. what was the score? lost (again) 2-0
Sitting here its fair to say that I'm the most worried I've been for many a year about our Premiership tenure. To me it sounded like the players were holding their own personal protests at Dowie's sacking and the normal motivated performance encouraged by a new manager was nowhere to be seen. Player power, er how about the players couldn't care less?
The first half was abysmal and by far the worst 45 minutes of the season, and they didn't deserve the fans that followed the new management team to the Majedski Stadium in numbers.
The 2nd half was an improvement, although it couldn't have been worse, however putting new handles on doors held my attention much more than the spineless performance and Steve Brown's ever more annoying voice.
Our away forms a joke, we are in it up to our armpits and after a traumatic week in Charlton's history, this result asks more questions than answers them. Les Reed needs to do something and do something quick because the trauma can only get worse.Opinions from those that were there: BBC Sport
