Millwall 2 Charlton Athletic 1
For the entirety of the today’s game I was fortunate enough to be out on a boat off Amelia Island in Florida the captain navigating his craft through the islands of the inland waterway moving frequently across the Georgia and Florida stateline.
For almost the entirety of the game I had absolutely no signal on my phone. Disconcerting and liberating in equal measures.
My Livescore app found an ounce of satellite just as Diarra had given us a lead. The signal disappeared as quick as it had came until the game was in injury time. Typically my football club had capitulated for the umpteenth time to that lot. I banged out a text to my brother: “Every f—— time.” The reply was less polite.
The game meant nothing to us, just a large amount of pride, but it doesn’t matter who pulls on the shirt or gives the teamtalk, Charlton are never able to muster an ounce of it in this game.
Albury Addick sums up my post match feelings perfectly.
Elsewhere in the League: Millwall’s relegation rivals all lost. Rotherham at home to Birmingham, Wigan at Middlesbrough and Fulham were embarrassed at home to Brentford. Norwich won at Brighton, Ipswich and Bournemouth drew 1-1 and Derby, who are now 6th drew with Watford 2-2.
