Sheffield Utd at home. What was the score? Lost 3-0
Let's get this out of the way as I have beers to drink, and my do I need one. What the hell happened tonight? Did we underestimate them? Have we outlived our formation, was it a fluke or more likely, was it a case of these things happen in this division.
Watford lost at home to our next visitors *gulp*, Bristol City didn't win again and well we blew it didn't we? Which leaves the door open for West Brom tomorrow night. I was convinced before the game that Sheffield United are a lot better than their position suggests and it sounded like they stifled us, matched us in midfield, got a bit lucky and done us some large damage in front of our apparent quiet home crowd.
I'm not sure 4-5-1 can work at home, and as my mate said to me we have to earn the right to win and we didn't do that even though if ZZ hadn't missed when it was easier to score, it may have been different.
Great thing about this league though is that we play again in a couple of days and as I wrote
late last night Pards does have options within his squad. With only a few cyber friends at Charlton Life
to 'talk' to tonight it sure sounds like a few players need a rest but remember it is one game, we have just picked up an unexpected 12 points from 12. Lets go again and not get too downbeat. Now where is that beer?Who was at The Valley: Many Miles

.What Pards' said: "I cannot deny that we were a bit flat, which was surprising as we came into the game on the back of an exceptional performance at Preston on Saturday. There were things that went on in the first half that worried me and I will address those."
A bottle of fizzy pop for:
Matt Holland. From what I heard, his half-time appearance did help encourage a more positive 2nd half.
