News that away tickets can be bought tonight on the door has only increased my Addick-sickness. A tin-pot game in a tin-pot cup nevertheless but I would be happy to be there to see what will be a 2nd XI tonight. Pards has admitted more than once that he doesn't know who his best eleven are, which I take as honest and canny as opposed to a failing limitation.
Clearly players are starting to own their places such as Big Chris, Bougherra, Semedo and Sam but for each position Pards has at least two choices and I would expect him to freshen up the team regularly this season, picking teams to win games. Tonight we could see a completely different side take the field and I for one would be happy to see Moo2Kil, Toddy and Holland. By the way is Sodje cup-tied?
I wonder if we will see billy big bollocks Thomas tonight? Once again Pards talked with a large modicum of managerial sense on Saturday after the game about Thomas' attitude. Lets face it he joined as an overweight spoiled brat, credit to Curbs for attempting to turn him around, but now we have a fat-walleted spoilt tosser. Shame, but are we losing sleep over it? Nah.
One player we will see tonight, oops for me that should read hear about from 4,000 miles away via some random medium, will be Chris Perry, who had this to say, "I was happy to see the draw but I was probably the only one in the camp which was a bit gutted it wasn’t away to be honest. It would have been nice to go down there."
