QPRhaha 2 Addicks 1
I've spent the whole morning trying to cancel my CAFC TV
membership. Whose bloody idea was it to let us overseas nobodies be allowed to listen to games?
I felt rather depressed last night, I swapped a few emails with my New York
cohort, and went home from work feeling very disconsolate. The league table, which I have been tending to avoid staring at, does look particularly gruesome.
I am trying to take heart from the various match accounts from Addicks at the game. In just 3 days Parky did have them more cohesive and positive and he made a couple of brave selection decisions. Saturday does become a do or die game however.
Our run of 9 games without a win and 11 games where we have conceded first is very disconcerting. On paper I've been happy with the centre-half pairing of Primus and Hudson, the latter has often put in some man of the match performances but it ain't working and whilst the full-backs under Pardew and Parkinson have been blamed, chopped and changed, it is the middle pairing that causes me the most anxiety.
The fact also is that we need to score goals and our creativity this season, and last (look at Iwelumo at Wolves) has been non-existent. Gillespie and a more consistent Bouazza hopefully will improve that but it must be time to try a couple of other strikers from the merry troop in the reserves.
Overall opinions were better though last night, and the players got some strong backing from the 700 in the subbuteo stadium, please let that continue Saturday at The Valley.Opinions from those at Loftus Road: Drinking During the Game

.Parky: "Obviously it's been a traumatic weekend for the club. Everyone knows Charlton is a fantastic club and has got some tremendous people behind the scenes. At the moment it's my responsibility to get a team which can put in a performance that people can be proud of."
