Ivy is in town
Ivy meets Emu
After a long absence, match analyst Ivy the Terrible will be at tomorrow's match between Charlton and Birmingham City tomorrow.
This quote from Sky Sports News is typical of the build up to the match: 'Tony Cottee is at Charlton where title chasing Birmingham will be aiming to follow up on their impressive win over Wolves with victory against the troubled Addicks.'
Regardless of how many references people make to 'bottom-club Charlton', we are not daunted or treating the match as a foregone conclusion. However, our prediction is a 1-1 draw which will do nothing for the Addicks' very slim hopes of survival.
We are now playing for pride. Cardiff have been crowing about the fact that we will already have been relegated when we play them. Even if that is the case, it does not mean that we will roll over.
