Boo, hooray, boo!
in the cup. Think I was at London Road last time we played there in 1993 - but hey ho, if my Uncle was my Auntie and if it wasn't for Global Warming then it wouldn't be 60F here in Chicago today.
The ressies won tonight beating Aldershot 2-0
. I've always had a soft spot for The Shots
. It was the first 'real professional' ground I went to before my Dad caved in and took me to The Valley. Aldershot are currently 7 points clear at the top of the Conference National and have a great opportunity to get back into the league.
Still no news on any new recruits. Charlton famously keep transfer dealings close to their chest so I'm not worried.... yet. Burnley's Andy Gray the latest name being banded around by unlikely sources
One player that did leave the squad last week on loan was winger Martin Christensen has joined Dutch side Heracles Almelo
. He got a few run-outs in pre-season but only played in a couple of reserve games since. Will we ever see him again?
I think Pards's comments about our fans welcoming ex-players with open arms was taken out of context by some bored journo's
It is bad enough that most of them score against us or have blinders anyway. This season we have already had Ricardo Fuller, Jay Bothroyd and Kevin Lisbie each score against us, Super Kev three times lest we forget. Chris Perry, Danny Haynes and Dean Kiely have all played superbly and Bryan Hughes did his utmost in trying to get Danny Mills sent off. In the end he did the job himself sensing an extended Christmas holiday.
We can often be accused of being too nice but as Judas Defoe* will tell you Addicks don't easily and are not always so embracing. Blimey, even Dean Kiely had to change his shirt - goddam us, we can be so intimidating at times.
*Oh and the more we boo Defoe, the more he scores against us. Booing, cheering, neither seem to work do they?
