I only recently realised that Charlton's badge is meant to be a hand holding a sword. I always thought it was some kind of riding or wellington boot.

it may well be my favourite football club badge

First professional game I ever attended was Brighton at home to Charlton at the old Goldstone Ground. Score?? Brighton 7 Charlton 0. The journey back was spent with the Brighton fans I was with explaining to me how it wasn't like this EVERY week. So, yeah, Charlton lol indeed.

sorry, my counterzinging parochial defence of charlton's honour took an unnecessary turn there - lol away at a club for whom a match against the bottom club represents a near cast-iron chance of defeat

No worries LJ :)

What really stood out to the 10 year old me, was just how annoyed the fans I was with were. It was a case of "I've been coming for years, we've just been relegated the previous season, what have YOU done to deserve seeing that performance?" etc etc. Honestly they were really put out about it. So I went to the midweek game the following Tuesday (under floodlights! magical) and Albion beat Bristol Rovers(?) 4-2! After which it was decided that I was a lucky mascot. Yeah, didn't last long;)

If it's any consolation one of my first away games was at the old Valley and Charlton won 1-0 :)

pandemic, Thursday, 7 October 2010 15:02 (nine years ago) link

Ha! Well, I'm not surprised they were annoyed - if there's one thing a lower-league fan likes to do, it's somehow internalise and unify their team's ever-mottled matrix of success and failure until it's an ingraned truth that success is a springboard for failure and vice versa - every result is seen as an aberration unless that result is a drearily eventful 1-1 draw

congrats lj, the se7 risorgimento calls for a return to more ample posting

montevideo is the only sizeable city in uruguay, the second city salto has less than 100k inhabitants (tho it did give us both suarez and cavani iirc)

montevideo has about half the population of uruguay living it it. london has about 12% of the population of england living in it.

is poyet's kid any good

nakhchivan, Monday, 17 March 2014 00:46 (six years ago) link

he's potentially the best player we've had since I started watching football and an England starter, but he won't be here next season. no new contract. he'll go to a Premiership team.

remember when you said that DM was the hardest position to play well? poyet jr has nailed it aged 18. always in the right position, splits the CBs in possession, beautiful passing range, crunching tackles that are almost never even close to being fouls, reads the game like a book

he's been MOTM almost every time he's played. seriously incredible. if we stay up it will be mostly his doing.

he makes most championship players look like the artless hacks they are

imago, Monday, 17 March 2014 00:54 (six years ago) link

that's pretty damn impressive
he got good notices for england juniors but plenty of england under 17 captains end up in league two
england don't produce proper defensive midfielders at all, carrick is the only one they have and dm prospects tend to be athletic and/or combative but tactically inept rodwell is useless positionally and lacks awareness
although i hope he chooses uruguay, perez and arevalo will be finished after the world cup and they need young blood

imago, Monday, 17 March 2014 01:23 (six years ago) link

we also have jordan cousins, who's much, much more the combative, athletic DM type & a manifestly lesser reader of the game, but he is by no means thuggish & has a fairly good passing range as well

has something of the vieira about him, in fact

imago, Monday, 17 March 2014 01:27 (six years ago) link

ive not seen liam bridcutt but he gets described as a proper positional dmid and poyets father is introducing him into the sunderland team ahead of the more orthodox, moronic cattermole

nakhchivan, Monday, 17 March 2014 01:35 (six years ago) link

thought bridcutt was more a playmaker, not that they're mutually exclusive. probably a mark in his favour tbh

imago, Monday, 17 March 2014 01:58 (six years ago) link

huddersfield have a classy dm in oliver norwood who doesn't rly get in their first team much now with the far more dynamic adam clayton preferred (alongside hogg, once of watford). one for damo suzuki's parrot to unpick

imago, Monday, 17 March 2014 02:00 (six years ago) link

oh and they also pick lumpen shinhacker keith southern ahead of norwood, which is a sin against football

imago, Monday, 17 March 2014 02:02 (six years ago) link

Norwood to the bench at the Valley was a one off, he has been a constant starter this season, Hogg is our designated dm. I suspect Norwood will be off to Celtic in the summer, the consensus is that he + Clayton are too similar, him being the more dispensable/inconsistent one. I would keep both but we are in the selling business.

Poyet (Diego) is the name on your work-mates’ lips as you discuss transfer rumours at lunch, a player to make your Premier League-obsessed colleagues think of Charlton for a reason other than another Carl Jenkinson mishap. “Hey, what’s that Poyet kid like?”, they’ll ask, “I’ve heard he’s mustard.” He most certainly is.

After every crunching tackle, cross-field ball or composed shimmy under pressure, you have to double take and remind yourself that this kid is just 18.

He’s only just notched 11 professional games yet already he is the most important cog in the Charlton machine. He glows with class, his alice band a halo of footballing nous, holding together the shaggy hair that hides a wise head beneath.

http://www.southlondon-today.co.uk/Sport.cfm?id=10169&headline=Poy%20wonder%20could%20be%20next%20big%20Addicks%20favourite

maxresdefault.jpg (nakhchivan), Tuesday, 1 April 2014 01:37 (six years ago) link

Poyet’s 83 per cent passing accuracy is higher than any other Charlton player to have played in more than five games.

Yet it’s not just with the ball at his feet where the youngster is showing seasoned pros how it’s done. Poyet is averaging a higher number of tackles, headers and interceptions per game than any other midfielder in the Charlton squad.

it'll be sad when Diego Poyet is more famous than Charlton Athletic

Charlton are investigating footage that appears to show a couple having sex on the club's pitch.
The video, that has been shared widely online, shows footage of a man and a woman on the centre spot of a football pitch.
The description on the video claims the incident took place at The Valley, with the pair having broken into the ground at night.
A Charlton spokesperson said the club knew nothing of the incident, adding: "There will be a club investigation."

Albanic Kanun Autark (nakhchivan), Saturday, 4 April 2015 17:17 (five years ago) link

his spell coincided almost perfectly with my yearly disaffection with attending games

by all accounts he was truly excellent in his five games, but he only played in one win - it was at the nadir of peeters' drudgery and he was mooring a side which lacked direction

perhaps playing alongside jordan cousins revitalised his passion for holding midfieldship

certainly he is looking the part now

flamini was like that for a season or two, i think that sort of energetic defensive midfielder is prone to spells of greatness when they can summon the effort, without having the talent to go from season to season like redondo mascherano etc
