Not good value even for a fiver

Only goal difference now separates Charlton from a relegation place after they went down 0-1 at home to Rochdale at The Valley this afternoon, giving the visitors their fifth successive victory. In 18th place, the Addicks are one place above Millwall.

The attendance was about 4,500 down on the last 'football for a fiver' match. In 2012 we got over 10,000 more for an equivalent game against Stevenage.

Charlton started with an unadventurous 4-5-1 formation and Johnnie Jackson failed to score from the penalty spot. Charlton did produce a late rally, but it was not able to secure even a point. It's just two wins out of eleven now. The rainbows seen over The Valley brought no good fortune.

Russell Slade thinks that the booing by fans when Ricky Holmes was substituted was 'slightly disrespectful': Customers rebuked


  1. Little skill, seemingly no tactics, no passion - this was one of the worst Addick performances I have seen in 55 years.... and I have seen a few in my time!
    Individual players seemed scared of the ball and wanted rid of it as soon as possible....and you can't put a pass into the box without looking first to see where colleagues are....

    At this rate div 2 beckons.

    Memo to Russell Slade: take your hands out of your pockets on the touchline, it looks and is totally un-professional.

  2. Felt sorry for looman and Holmes at least they gave it a go no doubt lookman will benefit from the better players around him wherever he goes in January, sad times.
