My ultimate respect to the 200 or so Addicks that are travelling to Middlesbrough tomorrow. I hope they at least leave the ground at 5 o’clock knowing that the team put as much effort in as they did. Hopefully Johnnie Jackson is back in the line up to show some much needed leadership.
One player who won’t play is Roger Johnson, who like nearly all of our recent signings is a long way of match fitness. The Birmingham Mail said this about his arrival, but I hope Luzon can help him rediscover his form and desire, and it may well give Bikey and Ben Haim a kick up the backside, or may not.
Luzon uttered a few words to the press this week, and said that we are going to approach tomorrow’s game positively and that Igor is 100% fit. The rest will be decided in action and not words.
Luzon also said that he is looking to bring a striker in after George Tucudean left, who’s depature was hardly a shock. I have to say I can’t help but feel the club has become like a film noir, with subtitles.
The plot, already hard to follow, thickens.
