Chris Solly - made an important clearance off the line from wannabee Addick, N'Guessan.
A superb effort from our boys yesterday in a rearguard action which saw us come away with a point. I was concerned when I saw our midfield before kick off but clearly they did enough to see us through.
It's obvious that Sir Chris and the team knew what this game meant to us and reacted accordingly. The presence of Morrison and Sullivan in the away end reinforces that, proper old school and great to see. Well done lads !
Allegations of racial abuse and the coin throwing etc are what we've come to expect at their place. Nothing changes and I can't see it ever will unless the FA finally decide to act which seems unlikely.
I loved some of the players tweets post-match especially JJ's.......pretty much sums it up eh ?
Brighton are most appropriate visitors next week when we hold belated 20th anniversary celebrations. The Seagulls share our nomadic existence and their intense dislike of our neighbours results in kindred spirits. There are, of course, many others connections from down the years.
Hopefully Fuller and Wilson will return to the ranks next week for what promises to be cracking game. We've got to do better than the last time Brighton visited SE 7 surely ? Whatever, I can't imagine that they will sit back so it should be an entertaining game.
I watched the FA Cup 3rd round draw earlier, it offered a lot and delivered very little. Huddersfield are beatable if not exciting opponents. One hopes we get through and a home tie against a decent Prem team would be nice.
Sadly AFC lost in the cruelest manner possible today. However, there's a bigger prize for them to secure and let's hope they move onwards and upwards. Mambo played well for them which was good to see.
Elsewhere Pardew's luck may just be running out and even the most myopic of Mags fans are starting to realise that he isn't quite what he appears even if he did manage some wonderful illusions last season.
