The blame game

In his interview with Charlton TV on Saturday Scott Fraser said that most games are decided in both boxes.  In a sense this is a statement of the obvious, but it was certainly proved against Barnsley: woeful defending and a failure to take chances.   Hence, once again dominance in spells of the game was not turned into a result.   Similar points are made by Louis Mendez:

Ben Garner thinks there is enough quality in the squad, but it was only shown on Saturday between the two boxes - which matters but is not what really counts.  I once saw a non-league team which seemed to consist entirely of midfield players with an inevitable result.   It's an old Charlton story - excellent in training, poor on the day:
