Fleetwood Mac ?

Mick, notoriously very hairy

Uwe, not so much........

Bob Peeters old mate Uwe stumps on Saturday with his latest charges. Both as a player and a manager the hot headed Rosler never stays long at any club. Despite looking a lot older the German is 48 - perhaps packing tea chests every couple of years or so has aged him.

All that aside, it seems that the former City player is doing a good job for the Fishermen. They are currently unbeaten in the league since November. Their only defeat since then came in the FA cup to Bristol City. Maybe that their nickname is The Robins is a good omen ?

With The Addicks on an unbeaten run of 5 games including last week's backs to the wall win over Bolton it ought to be a good game. Of course one is rarely let down by Charlton as we know so it's guaranteed to be a cracker !

The fact Fox has been sold to Sheffield Wednesday and Page is suspended must give rise to the possibility of............no stop it ! It couldn't possible happen and I'm deluding myself. Why did I ever even entertain the thought ? For one moment I was letting my mind run away with the idea that Adam Chicksen might start a game at left back. Yes, I know ! Ludicrous isn't it ?

Tex has served his suspension after losing it over the charmless Morison and Holmes returns, add in the new acquisitions and there is now a bit of competition for places and Robinson has some choices to make.

I assume that Watt will occupy the lone striker role even though he isn't really suited to it. I'm not convinced that Robinson's favoured formation works that well without Josh but we shall see.

The weather doesn't look great hence the title of this piece making reference to the need for an overcoat on Saturday. Let's hope that the Addicks can sink Fleetwood under a deluge of their own and secure their first home win since the beginning of January.

Come On You Reds !
