Charlton lose again

As we forecast, Charlton lost 2-1 at Dagenham and Redbridge this afternoon and are now 13th in the table.

Daggers were 1-0 at half time and went 2-0 ahead on 55 minutes. Nouble scored a late consolation for Charlton from close range.

Possession was almost evenly divided, but the Daggers had 12 shots on target to six by the Addicks.

Some comments on players from those who were there:
Worner, no command of his area, arguing with Llera.
Dailly, no longer up to it.
Llera, back to hoofing, aimless hoof led to second goal.
Jenkinson, below his recent standard.
Reid, terrible.
Semedo, anonymous.
Wright-Phillips, negative body language.
Nouble, can't hold up ball.
Two bright sparks were Perrett and Solly.

The only player who gets a rating above 6 from The Football League Paper is Wagstaff on 7. The paper commented in its report, 'While Charlton boast technically skilful players, their young team looked naive and seemed bewildered about how to deal with the narrow confines of Victoria Road.'

Many of the Addickted have been critical of the inclusion of McCormack, arguing that the side looked unbalanced. There was no shape and pattern.

The Dagenham fan quoted in The Football League Paper stated, 'I could not believe how poor Charlton were.' Unfortunately, we can. Some long-standing Addicks reckon this is the worst team they have ever seen.
