Well hasn't that performance made the whole weekend seem so much better? Today was the best performance I have seen from Charlton all season. They have played better in patches in other games, but the worrying trend of only turning up for one half was certainly not present today. Everyone played a magnificent part in a free flowing game that for once we looked like we wanted to win from the first minute to the last.
Ask a selection of Charlton fans who were there today to name their player of the match, and it is quite possible that you will get a range of names. It seems churlish to pick one man out of a solid, and yet creative game, that the blue side of Sheffield contributed to in no small measure, but for me it was Anyinsah, who was a major problem for the Wednesday rearguard throughout.
Had it not been for Weaver making no less than three top drawer saves in the first half, Charlton fans could easily have been looking nervously over their shoulders with a three or four goal lead by half time. Fry, Jackson, and Benson were all denied by our former stopper, but Wagstaff made the breakthrough, and how appropriate on the clubs academy day, that it was a lad who has been with us since the age of eight who got what turned out to be the winner.
A good day at the office, a very good day indeed
