And Now For Something Completely Different...


News broke last week of a reunion for the members of the Python team. I'm sure it will be good with some classic material updated slightly and perhaps some new stuff. I'm sure it'll cost an arm and a leg to see and will no doubt earn them all a fair amount of dosh. Once they've finished at the O2 perhaps they could make the short trip to S.E.7 and donate some to the worthy cause that is CAFC ! Nudge ! Nudge ! Say No More !

Following the expected defeat at QPR where we proved again to be pretty toothless it's time for us to try something completely different. With our French hero seemingly back to full fitness it's time for a fresh approach. It's time to start with Yann and Sordell up front. I think they offer our best option for a striking partnership. Sadly it's not been tried from the start of a game ( as far as I recall ), I know not why but now is as good a time as any. Sordell's spent too time on the sidelines in the comfy chair.....not the comfy chair !

Sordell came with a good reputation and I don't recall too many Addicks expressing displeasure at his arrival. He has been low on confidence but I feel he's not really been given a chance which adds to frustration and players can become over anxious feeling desperate to do something in the short time they have available. I'm not saying he's the messiah ( in fact his mum says he's a very naughty boy ) but give him a go.

I believe these two would compliment each other and unless we give it a go we'll never know ! For me Church, whilst a good player who works hard, is too similar to Yann. Sordell offers more creativity and pace that ought to blend well in Kermogant's buccaneering approach. 

Donny Rovers return tomorrow evening following the downpour of biblical proportions that saw the first attempt belatedly postponed. We find ourselves in need of a win to ease some nerves as we continue a difficult and packed couple of weeks with Ipswich at home on Saturday followed by away trips to Reading and Yeovil  the week after.

Speaking of Yeovil, Rovers won away last Friday and you'd be entitled to think " What have the Glovers ever done for us ? ". Well not a lot last Friday sadly. The game did see Dean Furman sent off and the midfielder will be missing on Tuesday evening. The recently returned Frederico Macheda has just come back from injury and has now signed on loan until the end of December. He will pose a big threat.

We need to approach this game positively and hopefully Stewart, at least, will start in his preferred position. It may be time to welease Wichard as Wood may return if Sir Chris decides to give Dervitte a rest. 

However we line up this is a must win ( just one wafer thin win will do ) and it's no time for shrinking violets. Defeat would lead to the inevitable inquisition and nobody expects that.........

Come On You Reds !
