Yes we have finally beaten Bolton!
Hello folks, I have been busy with work and holidays recently so this is the first post about the mighty Addicks this season. The fans were ready and raring to go, the drums rolling, the teams taking the pitch and everyone wanted to get Wednesday's defeat against Man Utd out of their heads. But it didn't look like it was going to be our day, especially when Herman got sent off and we had a clear goal disallowed. Further to this in the 2nd half Bolton were rewarded a Penalty. But good old Scotty Carson saved it! This was the turning point, we brought the game to the Trotters and were ourselves rewarded with a Penalty. None other than Darren Bent was there to slot it home. Yes Yes Yes. Justice was served when the player who was a massive part in Herman's sending off got the same treatment himself! Wicked! Then Darren went up and scored again and secured the victory.
When Dowie left the pitch, he was clearly over the moon punching the sky with delight and sheer relief. So were many of the fans!
