A holly jolly 3 points
Charlton Athletic 1 Southend United 0
Sadly I was pretty much otherwise engaged during today's game. I was babysitting and despite my best endeavours, Now That's What I Call Christmas
was dispelling the crying a lot better than CAFC TV's commentary team and so it continued for pretty much the entire game including half-time. The Charlton commentary acted as only white noise to our 5-week old as I la-la-la'rred through A Holly Jolly Christmas, The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year and Little Saint Nick amongst others.
Whenever I did get a quick earwig at the commentary all I ever heard was Tony Hudd putting the ruddy mockers on us. "James Walker's on, oh wouldn't it be just if he got a last minute equaliser?"
Er, no I'm sorry who have you suddenly become 'the bloke behind me?' There is no need for that at four quid a month. Tony dear, remember your audience.
David Gold sat next to Peter Varney at today's game and just to get the tongues wagging cafc.co.uk
has been on meltdown all evening. Anyway returning Addicks don't yet seem in the Christmas spirit and today seemed like a right old slog but we all know full well that once in a while 3 points is the same pretty or not. Norwich won again, so did Colchester but MK Dons were held as were Leeds at home to fellow Yorkies' Huddersfield. 20 games gone and millions left. Jingle Bell, Jingle Bell, Jingle Bell Rock.Reports:
