There it be ! The west country scandal !
I've been to Ashton Gate once, for an FA cup tie in 1994 I believe. As I recall it was 1-1 draw with Mark Robson ? scoring a lateish equaliser after which he got booked for over celebrating with us fans. We then won the midweek replay at home and went onto to play Man Utd away in the quarter-finals I think. Wow ! What a day that was !
My other recollection of that day at the Gate was the extremely unpleasant atmosphere and several coins and other objects being thrown in our direction. I made a sharp exit at the end as I could what was brewing and I think there a spot of bother after.
I believe we are playing on Sunday due to Rovers being at home. Seems a lot of nonsense to me and how it couldn't have been sorted I don't know.
A quiet Saturday then and we can relax for a while watching how the rest of the league gets on.
For the first time in some while and the pressure's more on the home side than ourselves especially following Tuesday's heroics ( I've watched the goals this evening....... 5 times ! I love it ! ).
City have lost their last 6 in a run that has naturally seen them slide down the table. Given our wonderful result against Cardiff we should be anticipating a win and yet............. Come on this is Charlton so we know it won't be that straight forward.
Sam Baldock formerly of the MK Dons is their main man. Hopefully we can keep him quiet.
Who knows what side Sir Chris will put out given the current trend for injuries ! Someone will no doubt burn their nipple on baby milk to rule themselves out of the game.
Whatever the side is...............in Sir Chris we trust especially if he can deliver his half-time teamtalk BEFORE the game !
As ever I shall be studiously avoiding all media contact until 5 mins to go when I shall endeavour to discover how we're doing.
Best wishes for a good day out to those that are going and I hope your efforts are duly rewarded with 3 points, a good game and decent weather.
Come On You Reds !
