From bad to worse

Charlton's dismal form continued with a 5-0 rout at Huddersfield this evening.

Charlton lined up with a 4-5-1 formation against Huddersfield on a cold but dry night in the presence of around 150 Addicks.

Nothing decisive happened in the first quarter of an hour. Town then won a corner which then led to a second and an easy header for the unmarked captain and former Addick Mark Hudson to open the score from six yards out.

Charlton won their first corner, but Johnson put it wide.

Rhys Williams got a rather surprising booking for a tackle.

Town put in a low shot but Henderson got it under control.

Lennon conceded a corner. Henderson came out and missed the ball and Charlton went 2-0 down, having conceded twice from set pieces. Charlton has struggled to create anything in the half.

HT: Terriers 2, Addicks 0

Huddersfield won an early corner, but Henderson was able to grab it at the third attempt.

Poyet put in a shot, but it was the wrong option as Gudmundsson was running into the penalty area.

Fox received a yellow card.

Henderson had to be alert when Fox turned the ball back to his own goal. Town put in a shot that went straight at Henderson as the Charlton defence was caught out.

Reza and Holmes-Dennis came on, Fox and Williams went off.

A Charlton corner was followed by a second, but it was unproductive.

An attempt from Harriott went into the back of the stand.

Henderson had to make a great save with Lennon down and the keeper then kicked it out for a corner.

Makienok came on in place of Gudmundsson with 15 minutes of normal time remaining.

Huddersfield had a free run towards the edge of the Charlton penalty area and Paterson scored their third.

A deflected shot saw Huddersfield score their fourth.

Charlton got a free kick on the edge of the box after Jackson was fouled. The ball hit the six man wall.

Huddersfield threatened again and won a corner. Reza got a yellow card and then a second and he was sent off.

In time added on Huddersfield scored their fifth after a scramble at the near post. A low shot from Harriott drew the first save of the evening from the Huddersfield keeper.

The ONLY small consolation is that others around us lost (apart from Rotherham) so we are still in touch. We need a new manager NOW!

Colin Plant said...

Of course we all know we need much more now than a change of manager. I suspect Freye will be gone by the end of today, but we also need an injection of new players, scouts, and CEO. Will Duchatelet act decisively to achieve this? Doesn't seem likely so lets all get behind the protests for fundamental change at our club.

Rumours of a fight in the dressing room after the match absolutely disgusting fox,gudmondson,henderson and reza should be flogged as soon as possible they show no passion and no interest in the club start fining these assholes

The obvious answer is to confirm the appointment of Fraeye as permanent manager. This will remove the uncertainties that have led to poor performances on the pitch and the rumours of dissent off it. Fans, too, will doubtless be pleased to see that the decisions that will allow us to move on have now been taken.
