And so our bad run continues, but today we can take credit from the match, a match full of comical errors and ridiculous decisions by the referee. Myself taking the excellent Valley Express for the first time was hoping for a last Chrimbo present of some winning goals and on arrival I saw a Charlton team full of recalls and changes with Fortune, Holland, Bartlett, Myhre and Sorondo with Curbs trying 4-4-2. Wishing, just wishing that these changes could bring us a result. A games which started really well and throughout the first half and most of the second I would say that we were the better team. Our passion was rewarded with the sight of a completely different looking team. It wasn't until the 58th minute when things started to go wrong. Arsenal were stopped by a great save by Myhre but unfortunately it fell to Reyes who put it in the back of the net. 1 nil down, still with 30 mins to go, maybe we could get something out of it. But the ref would put a stop to that. Two clear penalty decisions should have been rewarded, one with a blatent handball and another with Arsenal players holding one of ours back in the area. But Steve Bennett took a blind eye. With the feeling throughout the fans that the ref was being harsh on Charlton was confirmed when he sent Danny Murphy off for what looked like desent, because Murphy threw the ball down on the ground when Bennett gave another decision against us. It was not to be our day, with Lisbie returning to first team action, there was no point at all of him being on the pitch as he stood there motionless. With plenty of chances on our half, we should have got something out of the match. But it was a promising performance which hopefully we can take on to West Ham this Saturday, New Years Eve, and get our season back on track.
