As long as our midfield is set up:

 

---Whitehead---Leadbitter---

Adomah---Ledesma---Carayol

 

Then I'd be flexible on the rest, although it would be hard to drop any member of the defence.

Oh Charlton, Charlton Charlton, ye of the accursed Valley, where did it all go wrong?

 

Not too long ago Charlton were a respectable Premier League team, with a good manager who had been with them for what seemed like decades, and some pretty fancy players. Very much like our own beloved team, they went bankrupt in the mid 80's, parted company with Lennie Lawrence and replaced him with a more succesful manager. Alan Curbishley, was manager for what seemed like forever until they got bored of him, showed him the door, and the Greenwich Gladiators dropped rapidly downwards, and don't look like coming back any time soon.

 

Their home fixtures have been affected by the crumbling pitch of the Valley, and dwindling attendances, after an initial revival, and promotion to the championship under "ex-England veteran" Chris Powell, they seem to lack any real ambition to move on upwards.

 

Bearing all of this in mind, it's a fantastic opportunity for us to stretch our unbeaten run, and record our first double of the season. Back in the beginning of the season, I was lucky enough to witness a rare Boro away win, and a Juke goal, to boot!

 

Charlton were pretty insipid that day, and to be fair, the match was going nowhere, until a defensive error gave the Juke a free header, 10 minutes from time. It's a game we should win, and 3 -0 wouldn't be a huge surprise.

 

I'll leave the formation and line up to AK, for in Karanka we trust!

 

Let's just say 3 - 0 with Albert and Muzzy sharing the goals.

I'm going for a goal-fest myself. This is where things will click. Without being disrespectful to Charlton i've gone for 6-0, with a fiver on at 200/1 aswell.

 

Also sensing a hatrick from somewhere. Not sure who though.

 

Game has 0-0 written all over it now! :P

 

I think it all depends on whether Charlton come and play or come to park the bus and stop us from playing. Can we break down a team that comes to defend?

    • Very few to be fair. The odd one whose narrative seems to be that if Gibbo had just turned a blind eye to the blatant rule breaking then none of this would have happened. So it’s his fault. Pretty much every comment on their forum tonight is blaming one person only - and it’s not Gibbo.

    • I would put money that he didn't actually substitute two of the players that were disappointing him at all, because personally I can't see a world in which two of them weren't Tav and Dijksteel. In fact post game I'm sure he even name dropped Dijksteel at the time by saying something to the effect of "one of them is Dijksteel, and he's my favourite!" Now CT has a point and you do have to take everything NW says like this with a huge grain of salt, but I do wonder if he's talking about Tav again here. We've had NW's previous story (excuse?) of Tav doesn't taking warming up seriously, so this doesn't seem like a huge leap.
    • Derby fans blaming Gibson,,,,,,,,Get a grip and smell the coffee. Your Mel Morris is the Be.. end that got you into this mess
    • Christ, that's insane. Professional footballers skipping meals because they CBA to get up? Can this really be true? If so, they're clearly not particularly committed to their profession, or to the club. Any fule kno you need slow-release energy throughout the day, especially if you're an "elite" sportsman. Also interesting that Warnock can tell if someone's had brekky by looking into their eyes. Wonder what else he could tell if he looked at other parts of their anatomy?
