Charlton Athletic (A) Match Thread

Recommended Posts

I think the problem is that our players are bang average and the manager is trying to play a possession based system that doesn’t suit them. Consequently the players look even worse than they are. Sadly we seem to have wasted an awful lot of money on yet another average player in Bielik when we would in all likelihood have been able to get 3 or 4 decent players abroad for the same money. We will lose some and we will win some but this season is a bit of car crash and we are a long way from being where we want to be. Hopefully cocu will be able to mould the kids into what he wants although the standard of u23 football is very poor and until we see them play against men we won’t know if they are any good or not! Onwards and upwards.

HT 1-0.
On chances alone, it should be 2-0. Curtis Davies at least partially at fault for both good chances.

But in terms of general play this has been an absolutely dire game of football. Neither team has any spark, or any energy - or any ability to string passes together in the opponents final third.

If a spark can be found, I think this game's for the taking still. We don't need to get much better to win this (although it'd be nice) - just play with more intensity. 

Bogle could have made more attempt to cover for the goal.

Theres not much point having Martin up top when the team are playing like this. He needs players to gamble and make runs for him.

May as well dump Bennett up top and hope he forces them into an error.

That's your opinion but I strongly disagree. 

They tend to overreact a fair bit especially negatively and seem to be very polarised in the opinions.  They also have a tendency to completely focus in on the last 5s of the game without considering the wider context of the game.

I don't want happy clapping commentators but I really don't feel like I get an accurate view of the game from their commentary. 

It’s hard to tell unless you’re watching it with their commentary I spose.

Hope it’s not as poor as it sounds.  Didn’t sound like there was much to be positive about really .

Their moans do seem to reflect the groans on the Forum tho , so ?

I was thinking this. Far too many passengers in this side. They’re not pushing themselves at all, it’s like they each expect someone else to put in the effort. 

2 weeks off and half of them still can’t be arsed. Said it after the Brentford match, this whole squad just reeks of a lack of responsibility, Too many think they can just amble through matches and it’ll all be alright. Too often we’re playing in third gear.

Not sure why people think bielik is a great midfielder. His touch is very heavy.

There is a lack of ambition and workrate in this team.

Its a lazy team that would rather pass the parcel than take on the responsibility to attack.

 

So far I can’t say I have been overly impressed with Belick this season mainly because in the championship I want an awful lot more for a reported £10 million spend for a defensive midfielder who occasionally plays at centre half and looks average  - then again Clarke was only playing league one football as well last season and looks frightened to death most of the time and our other signing Paterson is what he always has been and that’s average

Never seen such a poor midfield in my life

 

Our fullbacks and strikers are our only hope (hence martins goal vs leeds)

We carry two wide players in most games leaving the two left in midfield having to try and do everything

For me let's try 442 this half with Waghorn up top and Lawrence and Paterson out wide, let's give it a go, an early goal could change the game completely.
