D-Day in Plymouth

It's going to be D-Day in Plymouth as Argyle face the Addicks tomorrow according to home team supremo Paul Sturrock: D-Day

Sturrock evidently rates Leroy Lita and thinks that our 'wingers' are useful. We learn from the E-mail bulletin that both And Gray and Zheng Zhi have 'heavy colds' with Gray the more doubtful of the two. Perhaps they should take some zinc.

The match will feature Plymouth Argyle defender Krisztian Timar who will tomorrow come up against the Addicks for the first time since his challenges on Svetoslav Todorov and Izale McLeod ended the season for both strikers. However, Alan Pardew
has dismissed the incidents as 'coincidental'. Like incidents involving Muskrat, I suppose.

It's quite amusing to read some of the comments, especially those calling on the home fans to get behind the team and to turn Home Park into a 'Fortress'. I went there a few years ago as part of a Charlton pre-season tour and 'Fortress' was not exactly the word I would use.

I know that there are a few fans who occasionally make the long and awkward trip from the Isles of Scilly. Perhaps they will have an extra incentive to do so now that the football season on the 'rock' has ended with the Garrison Gunners and the Woolpack Wanderers playing a deciding match last Sunday. I'm not sure who won so I will tune into Radio Scilly's sports show at 5 p.m. which can now also focus on close season transfers.

I will be attending a table topping clash between Leamington and Rushall Olympic tomorrow. Remember that we will be the only Charlton blog bringing you coverage of this match.
