The Lillywhites

The charmless Phil Brown brings his Preston team to the Valley tonight. As with Sir Chris, the exact make up of his team is not known but one can safely assume both teams will feature a few second string players with Addicks almost entirely so.

As you may have guessed I don't have much time or respect for Brown. I thought his half-time antics at Man City when Hull City manager was an act of gross stupidity. Ultimately he paid the price. Many of us recall the horrible football his Hull team produced to gain promotion to the top flight.

Brown has also had the lovely Ian Ashbee follow him from Hull City. You may recall him setting about Lloyd Sam and Sam getting a red when Ashbee should have been sent off. I understand this charmless oik is due to play tonight......I trust he'll get the reception he deserves !

All we can hope for tonight is a good performance both individually and collectively. Hopefully a few will give Sir Chris something to ponder ahead of Saturday's game. As I remarked following Saturday we need some options as teams pretty much know what to expect from us and we need some alternatives. A change to the usual starting eleven or tactical switch if things aren't our way would be good to see. We need to give the oppo something to think about.

Come On You Reds !
