Fixture news

The draw for the noddy round of the League Cup has been made and we will, presumably, be losing money on a home tie against Oxford United, probably on Tuesday 6th August. The good news is that I will miss this one due to holiday.

The main fixtures are due out this week. Usually it's a Thursday with the first game leaked a day before. This year it would appear we have stepped forward a day and we should know how our season will unfold shortly after 9am tomorrow. Perhaps they will leak the opening fixture today? I am guessing we will be away on 3rd, maybe to the likes of Yeovil Town or Doncaster Rovers.

The new home shirt was revealed yesterday. It's red with a Nike logo on the right great and a Charlton badge on the left. Sounds great at that point but they have buggered it up with a pointless white line that drops from the neck line a dribble of spit. Still, it will fly off the shelves and cover the wage bill for August.

You almost got the first game right.

I considered Bournemouth but couldn't see them sending 3000 drunken Charlton fans down there for the first game! Bloody typical that I will be missing it.
