Luton Town away. What was the score? Lost 3-1
I don't like losing like the next man, but honestly should we get too excited about last night's defeat? Luton are a decent side, with a decent manager in most people's eyes except cuddly Ken Bates. They were one of my tips to get promoted, Chris Perry was probably the best centre-half on the pitch and he played for them, so come on let's get over it and move on. Pards certainly has.
I'm not sure what else we could have expected other than a tight game and it did sound like it could have gone either way, although clearly Luton deserved their victory. 11 players thrown together, some making their first Charlton starts, some back from injury, and of course Paddy McCarthorse, you know what I'm saying?
I had a lot going on in my office yesterday but was following the game the best I could via Charlton Life
(thanks guys), but for a very pleasant change my post-match mood was helped yesterday by meeting my brother afterwards for a pint and having our little warm-down. As Pards said, no one will remember, although the evening may stay a bit longer with the superb 800 Addicks that made the journey.Who was at Kenilworth Road:Reports: Sky Sports

.What Pards' said: "Nobody would remember it if we reached the quarter finals and finished eighth in the league."A bottle of fizzy pop for:
Darren Randolph. By all accounts he came out of the match with credit, and showed us that he is a very worthwhile number 2 and very possibly a number 1.
