What have you done?

I go away for a few weeks and I the whole place goes to the dogs. The boro result didn't help my already downward spiral so I just walked away from it all for a short while to rediscover the spark or the flame whatever to be arsed to write something. The boys have done a job the spurs result was fantastic I had every talisman superstition or pre match routine in full flow but our luck has changed. We have got that unexpected away win which normally kick starts our season its just come a lot later this year than normal. The Norwich result has help us push on further again we are back in the top ten again. But the understandable disappointment of the previous games is still there lurking in the background ready to return at a seconds notice. We have in the way started to experience one of the few down sides of being a premiership club the spotlight, the tabloid feeding frenzy. If they feel there are legs in a story they will just keep bringing it up again and again. Previously the only story was curbs to spurs, Liverpool next England manager whatever, there had been no interest in the relationship between the fans and the club. You see no one wants to read good news about other clubs just the same bad news rehashed again and again. Football hacks play to the crowd they write what the majority wants to read and I tell you we aint them. So any hint of trouble they think ahhh I don't have to run that Charlton well run club story again ! I'll just cut and paste that last tottenham boo boys story. This is where we come to the crux we are being compared to tottenham not their so called' big club' status or their revolving managers door policy but their bloody fans! Possibly the worst aspect of that dinosaur of 20th century football. So please stop moaning, so next time is see a boo boys headline I can in confidence skip over it knowing that it is the spurs match report.

p.s. yellow balls are key to our success - 2004 6 from 6 since we started using them. 1999 - last time cafc played with jaundice balls we won the 1st division 13 wins on the trot.
