Charlton 4 Norwich 2
Ahhh. *Stretch* Yawn. *Rubs eyes*
Nope, it wasn't a bad dream. Oh well the season over then thank goodness, but at least we ended with a win to make the lap of honour slightly less embarrassing. Remember we won last season's final game of the season scoring four too, so no counting your Robins before they are hatched.
A time now for us to put the season to bed.... although it will be hard to ignore the summer goings on down at The Valley as much change is expected, whether they'll be managerial, ownership or playing staff. What is important is trying to keep long exasperated fans encouraged of better times ahead.
Sure recent performances have given encouragement but results speak for themselves and the club cuts a forlorn figure sat on the bottom rung of the final league table. There are many things to blame but they mostly relate to poor decisions, and the time has to come quick when fans can once again trust the decision making, whether it be at board level, player transfers, loans, picking the team or tactics.
Anyway I don't particularly feel like getting into a season review, so concentrating on the game yesterday it was enjoyable listening to it on CAFC TV but I was left wondering why Norwich didn't turn up. Ok so their chances were slim but 0-3 in 30 minutes? That is poor, almost Charltonesque and the Canaries had a right to be pissed off. If I compare the relegated sides today, I would have to say that we look the least chaotic out of the three. It means nothing but should I take some heart from that?
Yesterday was just the 3rd time we have scored more than 3 goals in a game this season, winning each one. My Dad and people of his Addick generation used to say we needed to score 3 not to lose. There, we have done a full circle.
Credit to Deon Burton for a real strikers hatrick and doubling his tally for the season and by the end of another desperate season it was promising to have Elliot, Solly, Tuna, Shelvey, Wagstaff and Sam, who had a fine game by all accounts, all on the field. The beginnings of a team we can believe in? I hope so.Match Report: Blackheath Addicted
