The arrival of my CAFC Picks and West Sussex CASC Badger League entries reminds me that it will soon be time to get on the train at London Bridge and head down the line to Charlton. In its literature The Shard points to The New Den as one of the landmarks, but does say 'it is the most feared football stadium in London.'
I will have more difficulty than usual in making my end-of-season forecast. The players and the manager are untested. However, having failed to make as much as they wanted of the defeat at Welling, the pessimists have piped down in the last week or two as promising new players have arrived.
If you pressed me, I would say solid mid-table, with more chance of reaching the play offs than being relegated.
