Middlesbrough 3 Charlton Athletic 0

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahahaha.. what? Oh this is not one big joke?

“I’ve been training first division teams, youth teams, U16’s, U15’s and second teams. I’ve been training first teams for 11 years. But it’s not up to me, I don’t have to defend myself, because I need to focus on the job I have now.” – One. Big. Bad. Joke.

“Today we were able to compete with them for 60 minutes, but after the goal we had some difficulties.” Hanging  on for dim death with a possession rate of less than 20% up until they scored with just hapless, hopeless hoofs forward to an isolated Makienok is not competing in a football match. Look at the heat map from the game.  

“We can only play 11 players. If we have 11 or 30 in the squad, it will still only be 11 on the pitch.” – Thanks Roly Karel. In answer to the size of the squad, but hey as long as they were smiling, then that is the most important thing, right?

“Now we have to get the team fit and in good condition. Its clear that at this moment in the season we are not ready to compete with Middlesbrough over 90 minutes.” – What they’re not fit? Why aren’t they fit? Well, let us pray that an amateur football manager up until a week ago can get them fit for The Championship. 

The result itself is no suprise, even with probably just about our best side out. Watt, Kashi and a fit Igor the only other three players who could force their way into that starting XI. 

Debacle. Those Addicks at the Riverside today have my wholehearted admiration. 

Hopefully they’re be fitter for Tuesday.

Addick Bloggers at The Riverside:

Relegation watch: Bolton went above us after a 0-0 draw away at Preston, Rotherham were also beaten 3-0, at Derby. Bristol City were 0-4 down at half time against Fulham, eventually losing 1-4. Tuesday’s opponents MK Dons were beaten at home to Hull 2-0.

  2. The post match comments remind me of Les Reed at the start of his short tenure.

    Let’s hope that history doesn’t repeat itself.

    Yes, it’s Les Reed all over again. How many defeats under him? And didn’t Parky have a run of poor results prior to being confirmed permanent manager? Jeez.

    Why pick on poor old Les Reed – he should never have taken the managers job it is true but what he did behind the scenes working with Alan Curbishley should never be forgotten – and if you don’t know then shame on you.
    The only way out of this is for Roly to go and take his bloody circus with him. I am definitely boycotting on Saturday – just think if there were an empty stadium apart from the away end – surely enough is enough. I freely admit I hated him from the start because of CP but was always wishing I would be proved wrong.
