Gone for a Burton
Leyton Orient 1 Charlton Athletic 2
I hope no one was having an afternoon nap in the hotel rooms either side of me because I got a tiny bit excited earlier. Steve Brown said it wasn't vintage, but personally I am alright with a drop of east end liebfraumilch.
We didn't play well in the first half but I was thinking if we can get them back out 2nd period and regroup then we could still get a result.... bloody amazing what a bit of confidence can do eh?
Just come of the phone to my mate, and he said that it was Racon that was the driving force in the 2nd half. Just after the hour mark Shelvey scored a corker of an equaliser, the Addick masses (almost half the attendance) rediscovered their voices and after that if there was going to be a winner, it was likely to be us. Actually at that point I would've been happy with a draw but Burton grabs another 'strikers' goal and Yippee I Oh!
It was good listening to Brownie on CAFC Player
, and he has just been appointed Brighton's youth team manager so good luck to him, but he made a number of interesting comparison's against the last few seasons. One of them how players and supporter's seem to be as one.
So it wasn't vintage but it was as Kings Hill Addick
had hoped for. A win after going behind, only adding to the excitement and the belief. The Central Line will be rocking tonight as no doubt will I, although I am having dinner with a Brighton
fan. Oh well, I'll be on good form anyway.Quote: "When you’ve got a support like we’ve got travelling to the games, there’s no doubt it spurs us on and makes a big difference to us. I think we were pretty pumped up at the start and gave away too many fouls around the edge of the box. We knew it was going to be hard, which it has been and we’ve had to work hard in every game. It’s still early days but I’ve been impressed with the way everyone’s approached it."
