East Greenwich: Another battling Charlton performance saw the Addicks secure a 0-0 draw with Fulham at The Valley tonight, a clean sheet at last!
After a bright opening five minutes with two corners, Charlton were pushed back quite a bit in the first half.Dillon Phillips had to make a couple of good saves.
Their best spell came in the latter part of the second half after Jonny Williams and Lyle Taylor came on as substitutes. No one could connect with an excellent Taylor cross and a last minute free kick by Josh Cullen could not be converted.
Fulham were slick passers of the ball, but also gave it away from time to time.
Almost all our corners were poor, more work is needed on this.
When I saw that the East Stand linesman was follically challenged, I said he might be a problem. Two blatant offsides by Fulham were ignored, but he was quick to raise his flag against us.
Moaners were confounded by the announcement of a three year contract for Lee Bowyer before the game. The smiling supremo said that he was over the moon, pointing out that a five year contract made no sense bearing in mind what happened to Pardoo: Puts pen to paper
The report from Louis Mendez is here: Entertaining stalemate
Fever Pitch fame moved to live near Highbury, he had this fantasy of a load of blokes in cloth caps leaving their houses at around two thirty on a Saturday. Of course, nothing stirred.
I was therefore interested that quite a few elderly blokes got off the bus in East Greenwich and disappeared up side streets.
