Man Utd away. What was the score? 0-2
Now, I have done some silly things in my very poorly paid career as a Charlton fan and although waking up to an alarm call at 6.15am after getting home at 2am very drunk is not a patch on queueing overnight outside the Valley to get a Man United Quarter Final FA Cup ticket, it will probably feature in my top 20.
I could look at the game two ways. The first goal was a deflection and the 2nd was offside or I could suggest that we never looked like scoring, put in a very powder puff performance and were lucky to get away with just losing 2-0. Ummm, what do you think?
Not one player stood out in our 4-5-1 formation who was not a defender (thought EL Kak was our best player if I had to pick one) and it must have been a very frustrating early afternoon for Shaun Bartlett (why did Curbs wait until the 76th minute to introduce Jeffers?).
I know we were playing Man Utd but once again we did not have a worthwhile shot on goal and I know a lot has been spoken about expectations but it would have been nice if I had at least lifted my arse of my bar stool once in excitement as I sat amongst 20 or so very plastic Man U fans wearing No. 7 Beckham tops.
Again I watched Murphy have an ineffective game although he wasn't the only midfielder who kept conceding possession and probably for the first time Jerome Thomas struggled although he did see a lot of the ball in the first half.
Oh well, lets put the kettle on and go back to bed.
