Not wanting to be left behind
"I don't want to play catch-up, it's a very difficult league as it is, and you don't want to have to come from too far behind."
Yep sure is and a league where anyone can beat anyone but although I believe we will get better as a team as the season progresses, we do not want to be left behind. A unrelenting flow of games means there are plenty of opportunities to get over bad results or continue good form, but all this needs to carried out at the right end of the table to keep the promotion dream alive and Addicks believing.
Right back has now become a problem with Moo2Kil and Sankofa's injuries. We might expect to see ZZ there tomorrow, with Thomas back on the left with Reid moving inside next to Semedo. I wouldn't be surprised to see Toddy brought back in for McLeod with him and Iwelumo sat on the bench in case Pards needs to change it.
I plan a day out tomorrow - weather permitting - so will be relying on texts from the ground.
Finally Pards mentioned that Amdy Faye could be on his way next week, shame. "If he stays then we know we've got a player who has been good enough in the past to play in the Premier League." Yeh, righto.
