Pous Off !

I can claim to have seen three great mysteries at Charlton. Carl Leaburn, Karim Bagheri and now some bloke called Pouso. Carl's great mystery was why did he score so few goals then one day, out of the blue, I witness him going out and scoring a hat trick against Ipswich at Portman Road. Next up is the only appearance of the Iranian International, as a substitute , I witness him in a Charlton 1st team shirt and spookily it is at Portman Road Ipswich.
Finally we come to Omar Pouso. On the Official Charlton website you can get profiles of the players along with their picture. The picture for Pouso is replaced with the words "Sorry!We don't have a picture of this player yet" Ironic that. It should say, This bloke has been on the payroll for months but apparently can't be arsed because he is 'Acclimatising' Oh I saw him trot out at the Valley for 5 minutes when we played Portsmouth but that was it. Now he says he wants to bugger off back from whence he came. Bye then - thanks for nothing.
Pouso is not the only thing to disappear lately. My mission to lose 140 pouinds has started well with 8 1/2 pounds shed in my first week. If I keep that up I will have disappeared by Christmas :-)

England WIN

Well what a turn up. England only went and won the 1 day International series down under and beat those Aussies to boot. Getting to the final involved beating Australia and then New Zealand in order to reach the 3 match final against the already qualified Aussies. They did this to set up what everyone expected to be an easy 2-0 victory for Ricky Ponting's baggy capped convicts but oh no. Inspired by Paul Collingwood, Our heroes thrashed them 2 to zip and will be bringing home the trophy. OK it's not the little Urn ( Eric Morecombe carried him for years by the way) but at least it's some silverware from the tour. The World cup starts in a few weeks and people may start to think England have a chance which is nice. Very nice indeed.

All to play for

Great effort by the boys up at Old Trafford. We may have snuck a point but them's the breaks. Although it pains me to say it Mike Reilly had a very good game and Alex Ferguson said we were quite good too. West Ham continue to give Curbs headaches and the result against the Hornets has certainly added a but of spice with the Hertfordshire outfit now just 2 points adrift. Wigan nearly won at Arsenal. Thanks to a couple of dodgy decisions by the ref and lino ( No change there then) Paul Jewell's men were rightly, pig sick at the result. Charlton, West Ham and Watford fans of course, were delighted.
By the end of March we will have played all three teams immediately below or above us and will have a clear idea which league we are most likely to be in next season. It's quite exciting innit.
Lots of people have been asking when I am going to get the CAFC radio show back on air. Well plans are afoot and it is looking likely that we will be back at some point in March so watch this space. I will be looking for guests to join us on the phone and you could even go live on air with your opinions to the world.
