Santiago, Chile: I was talking to someone at dinner here last night who used to be a primary school teacher in Bray and she told me it was a 'rough old place'. I went to the game there in 1997, I believe this was the last time Curbs played.
Being many thousands of miles away perhaps insulates me from the mood of doom and gloom which seems to have enveloped most Charlton fans. Of course, it is irritating that the takeover talks have dragged on interminably, placing severe restrictions on what the board can say in public. And it's difficult to adjust to being a League 1 club. But we might actually win some home games this year.
