From Terry To Brian

Last week it was Terry McDermott who gave the post match interview, this week it should be Brian.

Leeds are next up at The Valley on Saturday. United haven't been very good on the road and including a Capital One defeat they've lost their last 5 away games. It's to be hoped we don't play up to our reputation of being perfect hosts by allowing them to end that run.

A couple of familiar faces return, on the pitch will be Luke Varney who was good in parts during his time with us but never consistent enough for me. He seems to have played most of his best football away from The Valley.........he's not alone in that eh !

Off the pitch Neil Redfearn reappears as Leeds's first team coach. According to the Leeds website " there'll be no old pals act for Neil ". Redfearn was only with us for one season in which he didn't endear himself to me nor many others I'd have thought. 

Redfearn was a major disappointment for the Addicks in the Prem as he maintained an unwelcome reputation for taking teams down. He left as quickly as he arrived. Whether he'd have fared better in Division One is unknown of course, however, we comfortably achieved promotion without him.

If Yann and Wood are fit and available for selection then Sir Chris has a lot to ponder before he names his team. It'd rough on Dervite if Wood came straight back in but hard to argue against given Wood's performances since he came into the side.

There's little doubt that Yann would be the first name on the teamsheet so who gives way for him is a difficult one to call. Whoever is left out, unless Yann is not fit and the gaffer decides to keep the 4-4-1-1 of last Saturday, a change in formation will be needed.

Sadly an evening engagement and me now driving to the game means no pre and post-match imbibing so a second visit to the Old Loyal Britons in Greenwich will have wait a little longer.

Here's to a good day on Saturday and hopefully 3 points for The Addicks. 

Come on you reds !
