Charlton Athletic 2 Swindon Town 1
I still feel numbed by last night's events. Numb but distinctly proud. I can't bring myself to think beyond today, not yet. Like Parky and the players I'll take a little break and collect my thoughts.
If nothing else the season ended in unity between players and fans. A quality that we have to take into next season especially knowing how rocky the road is going to be. But nothing changes one jot. I remember my brother and I having many very serious conversations 20-years ago about who we'd support if Charlton were no longer. The answer was and still is nobody.
I perversely like the idea of a struggle, a call to arms, a rebirth. Fuck Millwall
let them go up and join Palace for a season and let us get on with it.
This morning was tough, I didn't sleep well and then I had to re-live the game with my son. He was very quiet on the phone. He hasn't enjoyed many good times as a Charlton fan and the re-birth story needs a better plot.
I'm still coming home next weekend, strikes and ash clouds allowing. I had conveniently arranged a work trip around it, and, well Saturday at the museum will I am sure be a nice day out for both of us! Has to be a million times better than losing to Millwall at Wembley. I'm not sure I could have coped with that.
