Tranmere Rovers 0 Charlton Athletic 4
It was an absolute joy to listen to the commentary yesterday. Charlton dominated the game with good movement, clever possession, solid defending and most importantly with an increasing air of team confidence and belief. Phil Parkinson deserves an awful lot of credit, credit for the way he has us playing and credit for giving us all something to be proud of. A piece of history is a piece of history, well done Phil.
Once again our midfield was a class above and Semedo for so long a bit player with seemingly no real role or responsibilities under Pardew is absolutely thriving in this team and I was very pleased he got his first goal for the club, superbly dispatched under pressure. Not forgetting two-goal Lloyd Sam, another playing with a real smile on his face.
I try not to take an awful lot of notice of the league table at this stage, which ain't easy
, but the next three games the opposition certainly on paper at least takes on a higher level of difficulty but our bye in the Paint Pot Cup means we get another free week to rest players, hopefully none of them are being driven around by their agents this week, and Wednesday is a significant day in our re-birth under Parkinson. Then next week we host Brentford and I have my flight tickets booked and me and my son will be there. I can't wait.Reports:

Overheard coming out of Prenton Park from a Tranmere fan: "No disgrace to get beat 4-0 by that lot."
