Crystal Palarse away. What was the score? Won 1-0
As a kid it was always Millwall that I considered to be our real rivals, probably because I didn't know any Palace fans, but that September day when a piece of paper was stuffed into my young adult hands at The Valley telling us of our impending move will be a day that I will never forget and the proceeding years at that shit hole made me abhor and pity that rubbish club and their sad fans.
Ok, I know they don't care about us, we're pikeys, we're not worthy of their rivalry, we're nothing etc.... hahahaha there goes another rib, well good I don't care because that club, their "tosser"
of an orange chairman and their laughable fans will always be an irritation to me.
I followed today's game courtesy of Charlton Life
and a couple of great people who gave regular updates - thanks again if you're reading this - and my brother and mates in the ground were also texting and calling from a couple of hours before kick off. It truly helped me feel part of a great day, even the butterflies when 5 minutes of injury time were called. But when my mobile rang with 15 minutes left I had to assume good news and sure enough a cacophony of noise greeted my ear with the shout of "we're leading mate, 1-0, Toddy. I hope you can hear me, bye."
Its a great day to be a Charlton fan and the news that Reidy and the other players celebrated wildly with the fans at the end showed how much they too care. That, you see is the difference between being us and being them.Who was at Selhurst Park: All Quiet

.What Pards' said: "I was always going to put Todorov on. It was so important to win this match and pleasing as always to come out on top in a derby match."
A bottle of fizzy pop for:
Nicky Weaver. He has got some stick recently, perhaps by people waiting for him to fail, but he made a crucial save with 5 minutes to go and gleefully joined in the celebrations at the end to prove he is now one of us.
