The bright side of life
Some things in life are bad, They can really make you mad, Other things can make you swear and curse. When you're chewing on life's gristle, don't worry give a whistle and things will always turn out for the best. You would be forgiven if this famous Monty Python ditty had emanated from your North and South after after a pretty dismal season for the Addicks to date. Always look on the bright side of life - are there any bright points? Well we are a mere 4 points of safety or 2 wins and we still have to play West Ham and Wigan at home, 2 of the teams we have to rise above, as well as Watford away who have only won twice all season. Add to that home matches against Spurs, Newcastle, Reading and Sheffield United and you would hope that a few points may be coming our way. Chelsea are likely to beat us at home and I can only see us getting the odd point (apart from a win at Watford), on our travels. Most of our remaining away games are in the North West where we played crap even when we weren't crap like we are this season. Maybe a point at Everton and Man City but not much else. So what does that add up to? I hear you say. In terms of points? 38 I reckon - will that be enough? Maybe - it depends how crap West Ham and Wigan are or maybe Sheffield Utd will get dragged back in. I said a while ago that I thought 36 points would survive - It would be nice if we stayed up at Anfield on the last day but I'd rather we didn't have to. Hope springs Eternal. Well a bonus 3 points at Fratton Park has certainly raised all our hopes. I expected us to get well beaten especially as my Missus is a Pompey fan and we live just north of the city. Amady Faye's late strike means that we are now just 3 points and a few goals off 17th place and Everton did us a huge favour by beating Wigan .It's a tough 3 games to come where we probably won't get much BUT we have beaten Bolton twice already this season. Chelsea regard us as their bogey team and they have a few problems and surely we will beat Man U in the premiership one day why not during this run. 9 points it is then. What was all the fuss about?
