Watford 5 Charlton Athletic 0
What a shambles.
Very few times in my years as a Charlton Athletic fan can I ever predict a result or a performance, because we have always been so unpredictable, save the days of games against Manchester United, or the FA Cup.
However today’s defeat was a dead cert, but despite this 2,024 Addicks spent hard earned money to travel and watch the team they love, and gave the players total backing for the entire game. And this was their reward.
Perhaps Katrien could start her reconciliation process and suggest to her boss that every fan should have their match ticket money refunded. It would be a start.
No doubt Roland was sat in his control tower in front of a line of televisions watching feeds of games of teams he owns like a modern day Blofeld, blaming Damian Matthew and Ben Roberts, for an insipid and gutless display.
Matthew and Roberts, the two blokes who were in ‘temporary charge’ Monday and this morning.
The Guy Luzon effect. It’s almost funny.
Yet, what kind of men, professional sportsmen, competitive, well paid and privileged individuals put in an afternoon of ‘work’ like that? What does that say about them? Where is the pride, where is the humility?
2,024 ‘fans’ paid to come and watch you, and that is what you think they deserve?
It’s despicable, and I am embarrassed that you dare even wear the shirt of the football club I and many, many thousands of others love.
Yes, we get it. You didn’t like Bob, you are unhappy about the new bloke, with no work permit, who has the personality of a wet cabbage, but you are professional footballers.
If you really care, help us get our football club back.
Around the League: Stuart Pearce’s Forest won at Derby late, Bournemouth stay top winning at Rotherham and Ipswich won at The Den. At the bottom Blackpool conceded two late goals at Wolves and Wigan drew with Watford.
