Charlton 0 – 4 Albion


Hot, hot, hot. My hangovers are unremitting, but this run we are on at the moment makes me want to celebrate every weekend until my offended liver drops out of me. The reason for my barfly act yesterday was the best away performance the team has turned in since we battered the scummers last season over at St Mary’s, 4-0 was the fairest result from this game.

A multitude of fans left a breezy Sussex, and from 12 o’clock onwards it seemed they swamped every pub from North Greenwich to Woolwich, it was an impressive sight. Last season we took 1800 up there, yesterday it was 3500-ish, and it was a tight squeeze. My ‘restricted view’ was the only pillar inside the Valley, but it didn’t hamper my view of the onslaught.

Many of you reading this were probably there yourselves so I’ll just mention a couple of the players and be done with it. Ankergren – a vastly improved player from his bumpy start back in August, immense at the end of the first half when Charlton mounted their only period of goal threat. Greer slotted in seemlessly and he and Bomber had an easy afternoon. LuaLua crowned his customary cameo with what is becoming his signature goal – free kick passed to him to dribble at high speed and firing home – brilliant.

But my man of the match was a tough choice, the whole team played well, so I’ve given it to two men – Gary Dicker for his drag-back turns and generally fizzy football, the second is Glenn Murray, his goal was funny and cool at the same time, a class act again.

We headed off back to the pubs justifiably believing we are the best team in this division, and hoping that we are going straight up this time before the curtain raises at Falmer. I just hope my liver lasts that long.

    Heady days, indeed, and full credit to Gus. Just hoping we have the depth in squad to keep this going. There are suggestions though that perhaps we can. Great to see Greer, for example, coming back and looking as if he was never away. Fantastic stuff!

  2. The Hovian Says:

    Yes, it’s all down to Poyet and his idea of how to play the game. There’ll be mishaps along the way, but we are the team to beat this year.

    just looked at the highlights and Charlton were not that bad to start with but having said that we might have scored another four if Barnsie had got his shooting boots on and their keeper having a blinder against him, he will go mad one of these days and get a hat full maybe against Yeovil

    heady days indeed and I’m going to put my head on the line here I think if Gus stays in charge we will go up ………….there now I’v said it

    Just checked the highlights myself mate, even better second time round
