Charlton 2 Cardiff City 2
Hooray, 6 games unbeaten. No it's tiring. And pathetic. Admittedly I was listening to some complete dope on CAFC TV, but after we went 2-0 it was a tactically inept performance. That is the 13th time this season we have lost a game we were leading, 13th! And Gabor Gyepes last minute equaliser was the 68th goal we have conceded this season.
We have lacked tactical nous, organisation and mental strength. And this comes from within, from coaching. Where is the motivation? Where is the leadership?
To me Parkinson is now all about himself. He won't play the youngsters or change the team because he is trying to improve his disastrous record and continue in this job or improve his chances elsewhere. Tuna should have got another chance tonight. And Solly, Arter, Wagstaff plus Fleetwood all deserve an opportunity. Give me a reason why not? I'll tell you because it is all about Parkinson and not the future of Charlton Athletic.
You should have heard Steve Brown on BBC Radio London after the game. He cared, he really does. He is you or me.
There were less than 10,000 Addicks at The Valley tonight. A mate told me that the Covered End turned on Parkinson at the end, can you blame them? And if I was Murray, Chappell or Waggott those rows and blocks of empty red seats would make my mind up for me.Those that were there: Charlton Life
