We're back and running at TalkCAFC but lets see what has happened while we've been offline. Well nothing much except that we're 20th in the league with only one win. Tragic.

But anyway tonights match was one I was looking forward to for a long time, well ever since I got a job where I have to work most Saturdays, a Monday night match (a London Derby) seemed perfect to me.

Entering the seating area and seeing Fulham's flash new LCD advertising boards (why do they need them?!) the adrenaline started pumping, the players out on the pitch and the match about to begin. The first half was mainly Charlton, with Andy Reid going ever so close, and Rommedahl just shooting over the bar. Despite not having a goal advantage, we surely had a mental advantage over the home side going into the break.

Our run seemed to continue in the first 10 or so minutes in the second, and then the point of the match that changed the game happened. Cue Claus Jensen, the player that left The Valley for Craven Cottage 2 years ago.

In 5 minutes of madness, Charlton managed to give away two goals and Fulham found themselves with an undeserving lead. But one of the goals was from the former Addick. I think I had worked out that both of the goals were the home side's 2nd and 3rd attempts at Carson's net.

It had to be over, but about 10 minutes from time, a scuffle in the box resulted in pretty much every player protesting, except Darren Bent who kept his cool and got us a goal back, but it ended up being a consolation. It finished with us still rooted to the bottom of the table with 3 points, and Fulham walking away with another 3.

We really need the victory at home to Watford this Saturday, otherwise who knows what will happen.
