Blues 3 Addicks 2
"Quite simply we played a stunning game of football from 15 to 45 minutes today." - Latimer on Charlton Life
Not sure if it was me or not, but I couldn't work the audio commentary on CAFC TV
today, all the other bits worked a treat. Glad it only cost me 99p! So this evening I am more disappointed with that than the team, whom from what I can ascertain put on another battling performance. The conditions sounded poor and Weaver made two crucial errors, which cost us in the 10 minutes following half time. Shame because it sounded as if we were excellent the 30 minutes before the break and then Sam, Bouazza and Holland combined to miss a sitter just before they equalised.
Hopefully tomorrow I can watch the highlights because both of our goals sounded delightful and extra credit to Gray who I understand is playing despite some awful personal issues. We didn't have the wherewithal to take advantage of Birmingham's 10-men after Quashie got his marching orders on the hour but there is no doubt that Birmingham in this division are very good opposition, especially at St Andrews and of course with that blimmin' age-old Addick adversery Kevin Phillips in their line up.
Anyone calling for Pardew's head at the moment is doing the team no favours, just one point from two tough away games doesn't tell the true story of a group of players fighting for their manager.Addick thoughts: cafc.co.uk
