Pre Season Blues: Charlton 1 -1 New Zealand

A very dissapointing match in my opinion. Not only were many fans annoyed entering the stadium due to ticketing problems outside the ground, but many were also annoyed leaving. We had a great first half, we were all over the NZ team and trialist Bolanos - who was amazing and the best player on the pitch (sign him!) - set up Marcus Bent for a great first goal. It seems that we are now going to play music after each goal as the same tune they play at Norwich blared out the stadium after the ball was put in the net!
Unfortunately we were a different team in the second half, some shocking defending meant NZ got a goal back and thats how the game stayed. Darren Bent made his comeback after his sandwich incident which was good to see. But all in all, we are going to struggle this season if we keep playing like this.
