Charlton Athletic 2 Hull City 1
Thanks again to my ever reliable Mum for the text that sprung to life when I nicked a bit of free wireless at Belize airport this morning (7 hours behind the UK). What a fantastic result.
Players are falling like flies, but it must have taken a massive team effort to dominate the game and grab all 3 points in the way they did this afternoon. I’ve said for donkey’s years that our games are always the last to finish in the country and I think today’s ended at 102 minutes. Blimey, The Valley must have been rocking at 5pm and my son was there with my brother and I can’t wait to get a full run down tomorrow.
Also a word for Simon Makienok. How we would all love him to be a hero in SE7. Look at the bloke, 8ft, viking status, more tattoo’s than a back street tattoo artist and he is so up for it, he really is. Absolutely delighted to see him get on the scoresheet today.
And Johann B Gud? A header. Nah…..
Come on you reds!
