Time to head down those tracks again

Tomorrow it will be time to get on the train at London Bridge for Charlton again.

Despite the gloomy predictions of the pundits and the bookies that Charlton are relegation fodder, the mood among the Addickted seems to be buoyant. One Addick who was driving through South-East London this morning was amazed by the number of people out in Charlton colours.

Charlie Austin, who has attracted interest from Premiership clubs, will be a handful. Paul Konchesky will have a point to prove on his return to The Valley.

QPR have just signed centre back Grant Hall from Spurs. The clogger spent part of last season on loan in the Championship: Grant Hall

One of the biggest concerns for the Addicks must be the absence of Stephen Henderson following a shoulder operation. Igor Vetokele is also unavailable.

Charlton have won their last four opening home day games. In their last home fixture with the Super Hoops they won 1-0.

A lot of fans are still without their season ticket cards and will be hoping to collect them tomorrow. They can't all be mislaid in the post and it suggests that some of them were never sent out in the first place, or not to the right address. Let's hope there isn't too much chaos and confusion tomorrow.

Gnomes and elves will be out in SE7 selling Voice of the Valley and Rick Everitt has tweeted that it includes a scoop. This may refer to what should prove to be an interesting extensive interview with Alan Curbishley. More details here: Made in Ramsgate

Odds (Coral): Charlton 2/1, Draw 23/10, QPR 11/8,

I'm not sure but think you'll be lucky to get a train at London Bridge.

I can't find any reference to problems (lack of trains) at London Bridge on t'internet - so crossing my fingers & leaving plenty of time - as usual...
