Saturday was a real hard knock to take as relegation rivals Huddersfield Town thrashed us 4-0 at The John Smiths Stadium where we don’t have the best recent record for conceding goals there as we have now conceded nine in our last two games away at there ground and assistant manager Johnnie Jackson knows all too well about losing there as he offered to pay for the away fans tickets after the embarrassment we had when we lost 5-0 back in 2016.

Can you get 25/25 on this former Charlton players quiz? I bet you can’t, but feel free to prove me wrong!

Who is this?

With just ten games to go, we really could have done with a result like that going our way as we now sit just two points off of the relegation zone and the biggest relegation battle of the season awaits us just around the corner with Middlebrough coming to The Valley this Saturday.

Boro will play fourth-place Nottingham Forest tonight which if they win will send Charlton into the relegation zone for the first time this season and it will get this relegation scrap well underway.

Saturday is a huge game, the biggest so far this season and after an awful performance like that, we need to show our full support if we are going to get anything out of this weekend’s game. We need every fan up on their feet singing their hearts out because that is what it is to be a Charlton fan, we support our team until the very end.

Yes last weekend was an embarrassing result, but we must dust ourselves off and get ready to go again because this battle is far from over and if you want Charlton to be in The Championship next season I suggest you get yourself down The Valley on Saturday.

I mean what happened to the 38,000 fans that turned up at Wembley? Were they just there for a good day out or can they just not be bothered now because we are sitting in the wrong end of The Championship?

I think it’s the first one because I have seen loads of vloggers on YouTube at the Wembley final and never seen them at another Charlton game so they were obviously just there to promote their channels which is a bit of a shame because we need the numbers at The Valley now more than ever if we want to stay up this season.

I still think we will beat the drop, but we will do it the hard way as we always have done.

Over 1,200 seats still remain in The Covered End for Saturday’s clash, if you haven’t got yourself a ticket yet get them HERE!

  • yES AND HAVE BEEN A SUPPORTER FOR WELL OVER 55 years and chicken feed to some.
    Bows has mentioned several times the support has been amazing, even when we have played shite and there has been many games this season home and away.
    We have backed them to the hilt and is it not time all CAFC’s players delivered out on the pitch and they supposed to love the jobe they do for a very nice salary.
    However, many supporters who have been very very patient are beginning to vent their feelings and they like everyone has a right to have a go.
    Te R word is very much with this CAFC squad and frankly are not up to the standard and too many players hiding behind injuries. Simply not good enough and supporters pay good money to go up and down the Country and the least we expect is full commitment every match and such a shame we have not got much quality but Charlton Live think that they have. Pathetic individuals indeed who condone live & vicious personal attacks and allowed to get away with swearing and appearing drunk on all the shows and broadcast. NOTHING IS DONE ABOUT IT THEY ARE SCUM AND VERMIN AND AFRAID MOST OF THE DEPARTMENTS INCLUDING THE SO- CALLED MEDIA DEPARTMENT IS ABSOLUTELY PATHETIC JUST LIKE CHARLTON PATHETIC AND THE MATT AS EVERYONE ELSE STATES DOES NOT ANSWER VERY SERIOUS ISSUES BUT STATES “IT WAS NOT THE RESULT WE WANTED AND WE ARE ALL TRYING!!! vERY TRYING TO US AND FINE TO SEND ROSES ON vALENTINE’S DAY AND STATING SINCERE CONDOLENCES TO THOSE WHO HAVE LOST THEIR LIVES, hE DOES NOT EVEN KNOW THEM.
