A few years ago you would never have dreamt for over 20,000 Charlton fans to be singing their hearts out and loving to support our great club, but today once again we have that for our own eyes to see as Leeds United visit The Valley for Lee Bowyer’s first game against his old side.
Last time we saw anything like what we will today was the play-off semi-final against another Yorkshire side Doncaster Rovers, which had a full-house for what was an epic encounter.
On that day we finally got what we wanted, success. Instead of throwing pigs and crisps on the pitch we were throwing ourselves on it!
But now we have an even bigger challenge to overcome and we need to be there in full-voice for our boys.
Leeds, as we know, have a hostile set of fans and they are loud and proud of who they support, just like us. If we can beat them at the chanting game today it gives our lads a lot more confidence going forward.
In terms of actual attendance apparently we are looking at about 22k (3k Leeds) although I have heard about a few Leeds fans in the home end so make sure you drown them out with your support for the team!
Those numbers could easily change as I’m sure a lot of you will be buying on the day, so hopefully, we can about 24k which will send The Valley rocking like it should be.
If you have not got yourself a ticket make sure you do because this one is going to be a game to remember.
