A tale of two ex-Addicks
It was the tale of two ex-Addicks earlier as Crystal Palarse stayed up
following a pivotal moment when Luke Varney was unable to tuck away a one-on-one with the scores equal, then minutes later Darren Ambrose scored his 20th goal of the season to give the cheese rolls an unassailable advantage.
Darren Purse made it 2-2 to set up a tense last five minutes but Wednesday didn't get as close again. Wednesday were nervous and went early with the long desperate punts despite being on level footing at half-time.
In all honesty if it wasn't for their finances then Palarse would have finished 8 places higher and the difference was there for us all to see. With Palarse's immediate future still in doubt, I expect they will be forced to cash Ambrose in, although after a faltering few years, he does finally have appeared to regained his confidence in a stripey shirt.
Wednesday meanwhile had Varney, Jeffers and Soares as their attacking options in the last 15 minutes and will drop back into the 3rd Division after a five-year absence with larger debts and an older Hillsborough. They are reported to have a Chicago based investment group
(that I have never heard off) ready to step in with some invaluble investment however.
I was watching a live feed of the game and it ended with Palarse fans on the pitch getting slapped by upset Wednesday fans, which raised the spirits.
