I thought that this contribution to the Glynne Jones from a lister was worth reproducing (with some editing):
For what it's worth I think the last few seasons have produced quite the sense of frustration amongst the fans. None of us can quite believe just how wrong things have gone, and it doesn't feel that we've bottomed out even now. Having worked so hard - fans, board, manager, players - over 30 years to produce a club to be proud of, it's hard to even begin to understand how we find ourselves struggling to maintain a challenge to get out of the third division just 3 years on from being an established Premier League club.
Our expectations are disproportionately high, our confidence is extremely brittle and every setback feels like a knockout blow. That we lost in the week after a few draws really isn't the end of the world when you win the next game, and as the weekend's results proved there's still a whole lot to play for. In truth we can't expect these players, these third divisionplayers, to be anywhere near the standard we became accustomed to, or indeed as consistent as we were under Curbs.
We've also all got our views on how things should be done to make it better, off the pitch, on the pitch. I think we could all do with a sense of perspective and context though. It's interesting that very few people were prepared to state promotion was their prediction on at the start of the season, nor nail their colours to Parkinson's mast. Yet now we sit in 3rd place, in touch with the automatic promotion places and firmly in a play off spot, we're all having a go at Parky for not running away with the league.
The reality is that our full strength first XI is a match for anyone in this division, but loss of form, injuries or suspensions exposes a squad that is otherwise pretty ordinary. We can all argue the toss about whether Semedo should be in the side or not, that's part of healthy football debate. Hard truth is that most of the team would pick themselves because there's not a lot behind them.
One of the things I was proudest of at Charlton was that going a goal down would galvanise the supporters and we'd sing all the more. Now we get moans and booing. It's produced in response to what's happened at the club, I accept that, but I would echo Richard Hunt's sentiments that as supporters right now all we can really do is to unite, get behind the team and stop sniping at each other and anything that doesn't go our way.
Let's all go to our happy place.
