Blogs and killer get it wrong

We were not the only blog to forecast a 2-0 win for Charlton at Scunthorpe today and it was also the bet placed by Killer. We had forgotten that Charlton tend to let themselves down against teams in the relegation places. Remember Colchester United?

As expected, Pards started with Gray and Varney up front. Thomas was withdrawn after the first half and replaced by Sam.

On 63 minutes, just after Iwelumo had replaced Varney, substitute Martin Paterson score for the home side. Yassin Moutaoukil failed to make a clearance and Paterson was able to shoot past Weaver.

On 74 minutes Andy Butler was sent off for the home side for a second bookable offence, but the Addicks were unable to take advantage. A late chance fell to Iwelumo, but he fired straight at Murphy.

Despite this setback, Charlton remain in their customary 5th place. Palace, who drew at home against Southampton, fell back to 7th.

It seems it wasn't just a case of the Fancy Dan Londoners not being up for it against a game bunch of North Country Lads in a tin pot ground on an artic pitch, as we might have thought.
But what it showed was we do lack the craft to unlock the likes of earnest toil.
When will Pardew realise that Ambrose does not have the mental stength to be a decent player.
Gray time will tell.
The one bright spark is Lee Cook.
If he can replicate the QPR form then we have the creativity and devilment to create openings.
As for the sale of Reid £4m for a player we couldn't really fit in to the side and had an injury history second only to Cory Gibbs.
Good business Mr Murray.
