Joe the Saint will be writing later today about the Boxing Day match from a Southampton perspective.
It's not often that I go to a Charlton match on a boat. On occasions I have got the boat from Westminster pier to Greenwich for the last match of the season. However, I accompanied Joe on the Hythe ferry for a Southampton v. Charlton game at St.Mary's.
Unfortunately this was before the Silver Fox was in charge at St.Mary's so were were not able to watch the Ego walking on water in the Solent as part of his pre-match preparations.
