Mankini and Waggy cheer freezing Addicks
Charlton Athletic 2 Hartlepool United 1
The radio commentary made it sound a lot more stylish than what I heard it actually was from eye-witnesses later. One thing it wasn't was much of an advert for a new 5-year season ticket
on a freezing night in SE7 but it was three more huge points that keeps us nicely in the mix.
I had to explain my rather animated celebration to an American colleague as I punched the air around me in my office after Waggy hammered home the winner from 25-yards but my embarrassment will be nothing compared to the Charlton fan who invaded the pitch in a Borat-style mankini once the frost bite and presumed hangover have worn off!
Waggy has now scored five goals, one more than Lloyd Sam who had another frustrating stop-start game. Llera once again reminded us of his imperfections but overall the defence sounded strong against a Pools side who a few weeks ago had ambitions of a run into the play-off places and at least came to The Valley to play with ambition giving the admirable away following of around 100 something to cheer about. I was wondering if that is the smallest away following since our return in 1992?Reports: Drinking During the Game
