Bristol City 2 Charlton 1
As expected yesterday's game passed me by but there was no particular surprise or angst from me when I checked the Official Site
after the game.
If our relegation from the Premier League seemed like a slow cancerous death, then this time it has been more like a drive by shooting. Our collapse is a tragedy and whilst Bill Shakespeare may have made a good book out of it, even he would have struggled to come up with a hopeful ending.
They say a week is a long time in football and seven days after beating Palarse and grabbing a lifeline, two games later we are just left with straws.
The game followed a now typical pattern of a reasonably good first half and a goal, but then we *delete where appllcable: i) gave up ii) weren't good enough or iii) collapsed under the weight of pressure.... and conceded goals.
What time I have had to look into the game I've seen a number of fans make comment about the CAFCTV commentator Phil Parry pointing fingers at many of the players atittudes. Now I'm not aware of BBC's Parry being a fan so his honest summarisation must just have been from a professional viewpoint, but that is a damming verdict on our sorry team and manager.
Moots was one of those picked on by Parry, as was Ambrose. I wasn't there obviously but is it any wonder Moots doesn't give a shit? How would you feel if your last two bosses treated you with such contempt?
