Millwall 4 v Charlton Athletic 3

In the intense heat of the Late Cypriot afternoon, I tuned in to the game yesterday and it sounded a cracking Testimonial. We made a real game of it against a side who haven't conceded in five pre-season friendlies prior to yesterday.

Three goals was the obvious plus but the four conceded a tad worrying. We shouldn't get over-focused on this but Robbie Elliott has come in for a lot of stick, especially for the line-up of the wall at two free kicks and his own positioning for them. Hopefully it will be a timely reminder for him although, personally, I wouldn't mind seeing Sullivan start next week.

I'd rather comment on the positives and those sounded like the midfield and Bradley Wright-Phillips in particular. It was good to hear Johnnie Jackson back in the thick of it and scoring again. Kenny Jackett was "very pleased with the opposition...Charlton are a massive club...who pushed us all the way." Always liked Jackett.

Bring on the Cherries!


  1. Lol, I'm actually a fan of Jackett too. Think Millwall will be strong candidates again this season.

    Didn't realise that they had not conceded in 5. Says a lot.

    How's the holiday?

  2. Eating well, great company, stinking hot, private pool, Sky tv and plenty of beer and wine. Pretty good I'd say. Enjoy your victorious return to the Valley on Saturday. For a change, you will be there and I will be tuned in on CAFCTV. Charlton Forever!

  3. You're right, that will be a change. Btw, can you listen to cafc player on the IPad?

  6. Hope your enjoying you hol's Dave. Your house keeper sure knows how to throw a good party. Just arrived in Lanzarote and still nursing the effects. Still, at least I haven't got to deal with the mess.
    Can't believe the disrespect some people can show to a bit of lead glass work you put so much time and effort into...


Go on, you know you want to....
