Brighton & Hove Albion 3 Charlton Athletic 0
“Apologies to everyone for my performance today. Not good enough.”
That was Diego Poyet on Twitter post match and by the sounds of it he wasn’t alone. We were again given a shooing by one of the better teams in the division, slipping to another 3-0 defeat, disappointing in front of a almost 2,000 Addicks, although hardly unexpected. As Riga pretty much said after, there are many teams on a different level to us in this division.
Poyet and the others (especially Diego) will be forgiven as we have ‘bigger’ fish to fry, and we to hope that the players have once again left enough in the tank for our next Tuesday night game.
The best news today was the return of Chris Solly, who came on as sub in the 65th minute. I wonder if it is too early for him to start on Tuesday, but with Cort fit as well, these will be the best two signings the Addicks have made since January.
I had every plan to go to the Amex today, but decided against it, instead I fly back to Gatwick tonight and will take my place at The Valley on Tuesday.
