Auf wiedersehen pets
You saw (hopefully) my Millwall vacillation below
. I don't know, I'm very torn. I'm already dreading the two fixtures against them, but I have to say when my brother text me on the golf course earlier to tell me of Scunthorpe's late goal
, I punched the air in delight, see.... you know what I mean don't you, we can't have those neanderthals in a higher division than us. Come on, where are those poxy fixtures :-)
Most of my negative energy was focused on Newcastle United today. Football's ugliest dysfunctional family. Alan Shearer
, who I have nothing against, frankly ballsed it up didn't he? How rubbish were Newcastle today? Yes it had been coming for 5-6 years and they deserve to be relegated, but blimey how much did those players not give a toss? Flipping disgraceful and I'm not going down the Dowie route because I don't think I ever saw a Charlton team so unprepared under him.
Anyway Phil Brown and his permatan got lucky and those teary-eyed Toon fans need to smell the brown ale because I reckon there is a lot more pain ahead with a £70m annual wage bill, including some players on contracts that will not be automatically reduced upon relegation because it was never considered a realistic possibility. Mike Ashley must be proud.Gillingham
added to the southern flavour of Div 3 yesterday by beating Shrewsbury convincingly with captain Barry Fuller giving heart to all of those young Addicks released by the club recently, when he lifted the trophy. Burnley play Sheffield United
tomorrow. I want the Clarets to win but I think the stars are aligned with the Blades.
