About Me

Old Coulsdon, United Kingdom
An acquired refugee from the days of exile at Selhurst Park, my first game being a dreary 1-1 draw with Millwall. I followed the team back to The Valley, and have now been with them for over twenty years. You will find me in the Rose of Denmark or in the Lower West. Follow me on Twitter @DeepestDarkest1

At Seventeen

I go away on holiday, and look what happens! We have our best start in a couple of seasons, (although we haven't played anybody in the current top ten in fairness). We knock Reading's finest second string out of a largely meaningless cup competition with what is largely our own second string, so that's good, and Elliot has still not moved to Newcastle. Oh, and the point of this update to the squad, is that we have signed Leon Cort on loan from Burnley for the season.

This was a needed addition to the back four, as we were light on first choice centre backs. In fairness, we are probably only an out and out striker, or more accurately a player capable of holding the ball up with his back to goal, short of a full squad now. The feelgood factor remains, and looking at the fixture list, I could see it staying that way until we face MK Dons away on 27th September. The subject of an abject horror show last season, I shall again be present to see how Charlton fare against a side I expect to see there or thereabouts come the end of the season.

Before that though, we have probably our biggest test to date after Scunthorpe, when we face the blue side of Sheffield next week. It will be a game where we reacquaint ourselvess with our former player of the year Semedo, as well as goalkeeper Weaver. It is quite possible that we will go into that game with the red side of Sheffield atop the table. Hopefully removing them from that position will be consolation for Wednesday next Monday.
