Charlton fell out of the top half of the table following this afternoon's results, going down from 12th to 14th. As Derek from Dymchurch tweeted, 'These Belgian geezers always get found out.'
I had been planning to go to see Leamington play Barrow, the former Football League club now bankrolled by a Texan oil billionaire. However, I felt too unwell to go to the exposed New Windmill Ground and in fact the Brakes lost 0-2, ending a mini run.
My Plan B was to watch Final Score, but I fell asleep for an hour and woke up with two cats asleep on me. However, the second half saw an interesting afternoon in the Championship and elsewhere. 33 goals were scored in the Championship to add to the three scored yesterday showing that it is a highly competitive league.
Pictures showed a grim faced Pardoo as Palace lost 1-2 at home to Arsenal. 'Is the honeymoon over for Pardew?' asked the commentator. Apparently, both Arsenal's goals were dubious, the Gooners first getting a soft penalty and then scoring when offside. The Glaziers pulled one back late on and could have scored an equaliser. My heart bleeds.
Millwall drew 0-0 with Fulham. It leaves them in the relegation places and Foolham below us. 'You're going down with the Fulham,' the Brentford fans sang last week.
Tuesday's opponents, Derby County, are now top after a 3-2 win over Sheffield Wednesday who were ahead at one stage. There has recently been debate over whether there is intelligent life elsewhere in the universe, the clinching argument that there is given that it has chosen not to make contact with us. It is also said that some space aliens got the hump when they started to follow Wednesday after being told they were as massive as Jupiter.
If they wanted further proof that they were dealing with a planet full of morons, they only needed to read the press report of a police raid on an unlicensed sex cinema in New Cross where middle-aged men were reporting to be 'pleasuring themselves'.

I hope that Luzon keeps the 4-4-2 formation against the Rams because we might just unsettle them when they think they will have three easy points in the bag.
