Wigan Athletic 0 Charlton Athletic 3
Blimey. No really, blimey.
No two ways about it, that was a terrific result tonight in what was undoubtedly a six pointer up at the DW, and whatever the 533 Addicks envisioned on their journey’s up, I am sure it wasn’t what they then witnessed. My total respect to them.
I’m thrilled actually, well of course I’m thrilled, but supporting Charlton recently has been thoroughly depressing and I lay in bed last night thinking about this post I wrote, and I thought enough is enough. No more negativity. It is really wearing me down. Support the team, and the manager.
Well done to Guy Luzon for going back to basics, tightening the defence with Stephen Henderson fundamental and playing Watt and Vetokele together. Bulot has been a revelation as well.
Luzon may, or may not be responsible for the signings of Roger Johnson and Chris Eagles, but he is entitled to take credit, however as head coach he ultimately is responsible for organization, shape, game-plan and tactics. He also needs buy-in and after a very shaky start, he looks as if he may have got it.
Winning breeds confidence, the other stuff is the other stuff, but a 3-0 win away from home on a Friday night is something else.
Enjoy your weekends’ Addicks.
