AFC Wimbledon 1 Charlton Athletic 0

That was awful..

That was poor tonight from the Addicks, as the team went back in time showing a severe lack of imagination and belief on the pitch giving us all once again a reality check that we possibly are not good enough for a top six berth. Certainly Wigan, Blackburn and Shrewsbury are on a different planet to us, and we have to play two of them in our last five games.

We have to hope that Bowyer and Jackson, a big test now of their fledgling managerial qualities, can get the players up for the remaining games because they are each against better teams than Bristol Rovers and AFC Wimbledon.

Bristol Rovers 1 Charlton Athletic 1

An away point is still an away point..

I’m in Sarasota at the moment and was unable to pay yesterday’s game a lot of attention, but it said a lot about what Lee Bowyer has brought that the result was considered disappointing.

From looking around at the post match comments it sounded like the performance lacked the intensity and attacking quality of the previous games, yet the pitch was poor and Bristol Rovers are not.

Bowyer and Jacko to stay until end of season

“The club are currently in takeover discussions with two separate parties and while the sale of the club has not been finalised, it has been confirmed that one of the conditions of the sale, agreed by both parties interested in purchasing, will be that Bowyer is kept on as Caretaker Manager, with Johnnie Jackson continuing as his assistant, until the end of the season.” (more)

Great news that allows both Bowyer and the players space and encouragement to continue their recent revival under Bowyer and Jacko and importantly boosts the new wave of energy this past week or so has created amongst the fanbase.

Charlton Athletic 3 Rotherham United 1

Lee Bowyer. Bringing the pride back since the 24th March..

A very impressive victory today as we moved back into the top 6 and drawing Rotherham back into the play-off battle. Lee Bowyer has now won two of his three matches against teams above us as we enter six-pointer season.

Bowyer did a little bit of the squad rotation he mentioned last week. Lewis Page sat it out and Jay Dasilva came back in at left back. Anfernee Dijksteel went to the bench as Ezri Konsa started at right back. Otherwise it was 4-4-2 as Rotherham started well and hit the bar early as we took a while to settle.

Northampton Town 0 Charlton Athletic 4

Lee, what have you done with our Charlton..

I was at Sixfields last season, it was one very depressing afternoon. It was last March, but it isn’t what difference a year makes, it’s what difference one man makes. The Lee Bowyer show blew through Sixfields this afternoon like a tornado. It was a performance of total domination and attacking devastation. Those there and from the radio said that 8-0 wouldn’t have been unrealistic.

Lee, Lee, Lee Bowyer

As I sit here like the rest of you looking at my watch move forward without any announcement of the ‘imminent’ takeover, I started to think how enthused I am, at least for the moment, that Lee Bowyer and Johnnie Jackson are at the wheel.

Charlton is one of those clubs that has had much success when Charlton people have been in charge. I am sure there are many other examples but a club like Charlton needs people that understand the fabric of the club, it’s history and it’s community.

Charlton Athletic 2 Plymouth Argyle 0

We played like a team of Lee Bowyer’s..

Off the pitch we haven’t yet got our Charlton back, but on it yesterday under the management of Lee Bowyer we appeared to move a big step in the right direction.

After the rigidity of Robinson, Bowyer talked afterwards about being flexible in his formations, picking them based on who we are playing. The caretaker went with two up front, Zyro and Ajose. He played a diamond in the middle to nullify a threat from Argyle that he had picked up on after watching them during the week. JFC and Reeves were the north and south points with Aribo and Fosu wide. He relied on additional width from his full backs welcoming back Page and giving Dijksteel a start at right back. Pearce was installed as captain and played alongside Bauer with Amos in goal. Interestingly there was no place on the bench for new assistant manager Jacko.
