Must Win Game

Well the day has arrived for our 'must win' game. It's been a whole week since our last 'must win' game so, as we managed to tonk those Hamsters surely we must do the same against the glory Hornet boys. Pardew has been making all the right noises and the players seem to be on a high so fingers crossed for another 3 points at Vicarage Road this afternoon.
We've done some more testing for Charlton Plus' scheduled April 1st re-launch. If you are around on Sunday night 4th March at around 8 you might even be able to listen to us doing the testing by reviewing the Watford game. I will post a link to listen in on Sundays blog.

Grim up North

Saturday sees us travel to the Southern reaches of Northern England as we make the trip to Vicarage Road to play the bottom team Watford. Apparently Elton John ( That's him playing at the Valley) ,Graham Taylor and John Barnes are no longer at the club and they have installed a Northener called Adrian Bothroyd which is more in line with the club's geographical roots. Talking of routes. The one I am taking on Saturday will be best described as zig zaggy. Leaving the Hampshire coast I will head to Horsham and pick up fellow blogger Frankie Valley at his mansion. From there we move on to Pease Pottage services to board the West Sussex CASC coach and onto the game via Dartford. I hate these long trips up North but there we go - you have to support the boys don't ya.! If we can get another 3 points we really will start believing we can get out of the doo doo. Steve McQueen can start the bike very soon.
I hope to be home to see the highlights on MOTD at around midnight. Wonder if old Lineker will describe the game as a London Derby? . You know what he's like when it comes to Geography.

Nice, Very nice indeed

The day started in the Rose of Denmark, (well I say started having got there 3 hours after leaving home), and the atmosphere was buoyant. The stroll along the Woolwich Road saw me bumping into fellow Blogger FRANKIE VALLEY for whom I had a gift handed to me by Canadian based Addick, Ken. A feast of Canadian salmon safely in Mr Valley's pocket off he toddled with his son in tow.
Onto the game and what a game. 3 up by half time, the crowd singing their little hearts out. By the time JT added his second and Charlton's 4th even the poor old Hammers fans were singing Pardew's name. Credit to those away fans though they didn't shut up at all did they.
The Rose after the game was great fun- we even found an Alan Pardew Lookalike and sang '2 Alan Pardews' 'There's only 2 Alan Pardews'. I got the highlights up on the massive 2 1/2" screen on my mobile and we enjoyed the goals once more.
There's a long way to go but mid table obscurity is now looking possible Watford next week and then home games against Newcastle and Wigan. It could happen I tell ya, It could just happen.
PS Oi Lineker Charlton is not in EAST London any more than Leicester City is in Nottingham. PLONKER
