Addicks 1 Cov 2
"All I'll say is that (chairman) Richard Murray and the board have worked tooth and nail to get this club in the position it is in. We have the responsibility as a group to keep it there, but it's fairly obvious change needs to happen." - Phil Parkinson
Not an awful lot to add from this end on last night's dismal display
. My only saving graces are that a) I no longer have a season ticket and b) I live 3,500 miles away and therefore am not forced to troop along like others. Although amazingly over 6,000 season ticket holders decided to stay at home last night.
I feel the pain though deep inside me. What is happening to our club is close to an atrocity. I still reckon that the season has plenty of time left in it, for us not to be resigned to relegation. However we are only headed one way at the moment, and the brakes ain't working.
I wrote the other day how I don't like all this loan stuff. Nothing against these individuals, but if this useless lot are to join the record books as the worst Charlton team in almost 30 years, then at least let the record books show that they were our flippin' players, and not borrowed from some other club. Really, honestly what is their vested interest in our future. Fans of football clubs, once they are out of pubescence realise that football players (generally) are only borrowing the shirt, for it is us that are married to this rollercoaster for life. So explain to me what pain Waghorn, Burton, Primus, McEveley, Bouazza, Crainie and Gillespie are feeling right now?
Frankly whatever team dear old Parky picks out of the hat on Monday evening, I'm expecting tosh anyway, but at least to give me some pride and consolation, let us see a young home-grown Addicks team selected around the more experienced Hudson, Fortune, Holland and Todorov. They can't be any worse.
