I've just realised I'm not going to see the Addicks playing again until mid-October. On Saturday I have to go to my brother-in-law's wedding. He claims to have no interest in football, but in so far as he supports a team it is Palace. If you think about it, those two things go together.
At least the original decision to have no alcohol at the wedding has been rescinded.
Then at the end of the month I have to go back to the States, so I will miss the home matches then.
Whether the team is a joy to watch at the moment is a matter for debate, but I would like to be able to make my own appraisal of Benson.
