An impressive display saw the Addicks swot away the Bees to make it six wins from six games. The main lesson from the game was that whilst you can make a plane out of bread, you can't make a defender out of Wood !
The passing was indeed straight from the top drawer ( Gary Haines please note ! Sometimes even spellchecker isn't enough ! ).
It was pleasing to see patient build up play allied to good movement......can I really be writing this about a Charlton team ? Like most, I think sterner tests are ahead of us but you can't argue with the performances and clean sheets that suggest we ain't too bad.
The team is actually playing like one. My one concern at present is Llera who is prone to the occasional mistake but hopefully a few words of wisdom from Mr Dailly is helping him. The absence of loanees, Luke Holden aside, is making a difference. We've got players who want to be there and Shelvey's contract extension adds to that.
Good to see Messrs Minto and Kielly at the Valley and I had the pleasure of listening to them when I got home having recorded the game.
Here's to next week and hopefully we can put one over the hapless Mr Pardew whose side failed to beat a team with 10 men for the majority of the game.
