CAFC 1 Southampton 1, 12th September 2009
CAFC 2 Exeter 1, 26th September 2009
Yesterday's win against a perky Exeter side seemed at the end more like a draw.

At 2-0 up with minutes to go and with MK Dons and Leeds in a goalless draw it seeme that we were about to go back to the top of the table. But then Exeter pulled a goal back and charged after an equaliser and Leeds scored a late goal to stay ahead of us. Still, as Bill Shankly used to say, a season is a marathon, not a sprint, and things still look good for us.

I apologise to the Southampton fans who were at the RoD two weeks ago for being so late in posting their matchday photo - I was away on holiday and have just caught up with my admin

The run continues

CAFC 2 Brentford 0, 5th September 2009
Six games, six wins - we haven't had a run like this since 2000/01 when we stormed the Championship having dropped out of the Premiership after a single season. It makes such a change to be able to look forward to Saturdays again, watch entertaining football, celebrate in the pub afterwards and once again take interest in the league table, other results and forthcoming fixtures.

Parkinson was able to field an unchanged team yet again and the benefits were quickly apparent. At 2-0 up after only half an hour thoughts turned to improving our goal difference futher over Leeds', but in the second half Brentford tightened up and built some useful attacks of their own, one of which hit the bar.

Lloyd Sam had yet another game where he was on fire in the first half and then faded away. Shelvey proved in front of Sky's cameras that he still doesn't have the stamina for a full 90 minutes. The best performances over 90 minutes surely came from Semedo and Racon with their deft, delicate short passing and quick thinking.

How much longer can our run go on? As things stand you'd expect us to beat Southampton next Saturday and so take a measure of revenge over Pardew - let's hope we don't miss that opportunity

Catching up

CAFC 3 Wycombe 2, 8th August 2009
CAFC 2 Walsall 0, 22nd August 2009
Just back from my holidays and can scarcely believe what Charlton have been up to in my absence!

I saw the Wycombe game and set off to the Mediterranean in unexpectedly high spirits. We won, but when apparently comfortably ahead we still conceded goals that could have cost us the game - typical Charlton. Four games and four wins later we've still only conceded one more goal, have a 100% record and sit at the top of League One.

I missed the Walsall game but Geoff stood in for me again to take an excellent photo. It looks as if there was our usual fine pre-match atmosphere amongst friendly visiting supporters, just as there had been two weeks previously when we played Wycombe - nice people.

So, we have reasons to be cheerful for the season ahead, assuming that we don't get pillaged for our best players ahead of the transfer deadline. Phil Parkinson seems to have stabilised the team, given it pride and tactics that it feel comfortable with, and quietened those who thought that he wasn't up to the job. Let's hope that we have a season ahead of us to quicken the blood!

Saying Goodbye to Dave

Around a hundred mourners, most of them regulars at The Rose of Denmark, went this afternoon to a rainy Falconwood Crematorium to say their farewells to Dave Fowler, the RoD barman for many years.

The CofE minister quoted Churchill during her eulogy and said that Dave had been 'a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma'. I think she hit the nail clean on the head. We all thought we knew him, but in reality we knew almost nothing about him at all. In spite of this we'll miss him a lot for the little we did know.

Playoffs weekend - nostalgia

From today's Guardian ......
"It's the play-offs at the weekend and what better reason to revisit the mother of all play-off finals, Charlton v Sunderland in 1998? Six goals in 90 minutes - including a looping header from Richard Rufus - plus another two in extra-time and then penalties. Sit back and enjoy".

You'll find the nostalgic six minute video at - bookmark it now ready to play in those disappointing moments in the next couple of seasons.

It'd cheer me up if I knew that Phil Parkinson was going to show it to next season's squad as an example of great teamwork and committed, motivated players, i.e. what Charlton supporters expect of them.
