The 3rd and final Midlands Premiership away match was against Villa on a cold Saturday afternoon. Making the way up there for my 4th away game of this season with my mates, I did have a gut feeling on the way up that this wasnt going to be that day. I had that confirmed when we reached Villa Park, in deepest and darkest Birmingham, and our team was read out. A place on the bench for Danny Murphy and no sign of Rommedahl at all.

The match started with a minutes silence for George Best, who died on Friday, and I was really annoyed, as well as many Charlton fans I'm sure, for these "FANS" of Charlton chanting "Wife Beater" when the silence started. One other fan told him to shut it. He was threatened to be kicked out.

The attendance for the match was poor, but it didn't stop us getting behind the lads. A closely wide shot from Darren Bent was our only first half opportunity and the sides went in even at the interval.

The second half we seemed to liven up the pace, but unfortunately, in a moment of a scramble at the edge of our area, Villa hit the bar, had a shot blocked and then blasted it into the back of the net. We had 20 minutes to equalise and possibly win, but it wasnt to be. We had lost. Our 4th on the trot.

The atmosphere was really good and I have visited another ground. Just ashame about the result.
