Those men referee’s huh?
Charlton Athletic 1 Colchester United 0
This afternoon I was tucked away in a big conference room underground searching for both daylight and a Blackberry signal. I was doing a half decent job (I think) of paying attention to what was going on in front of me on stage but surreptitiously I was refreshing my Twitter Blackberry feed furiously to see what was going on at The Valley.
140 characters will never in a million years explain the referee’s decision after 63 minutes – best explained here, but it obviously lifted the home crowd (a disappointing 13,830) and the team and BWP showed some of his father’s genes by volleying home a 78th minute winner to give us 3 points and allow me a secret clenched fist as I stared at a powerpoint slide on a huge screen before me.
Chris Powell. Ooh, I could eat him. And did you see that coat?

CA fact: The last person to score on his Charlton debut was Darren Bent at Sunderland in August 2005.
