A strong point for us was the result in this match, when really we could have taken all three.
Charlton were poor in the first half but Everton never really took advantage of the situation, so the sides went in all square at half time.
But after the break, this was soon to change as an Everton free kick resulted in a Hermann Hreidarsson own goal when it was whipped into the box. Unfortunate, but this is when all Charlton fans thought "here we go again".
Rommedahl and Reid were having a great game, and eventually after the gaffer subbed off a dissapointing Ambrose for Marcus Bent, the latter scored a scorcher. Bent talked the defender which layed it into the path of Reid who whacked it into the back of the net.
From this point onwards we were all over Everton and really should have taken 3 points.
But this was an improvement after last weeks hilarities!James - Staff Writer

I always love away trips, the journey to Reading wasn't too bad for me as I live close. But I have no idea why I made that journey, because I would return 4 hours later speechless and wondering why I wasted my time, as well as many other fans were thinking.
There really is nothing to say, we were the laughing stock of Berkshire that day, and now I am really worried about what this season will turn out to be!James - Staff writer

Yes, Assistant Head Coach to Iain Dowie, Les Reed, has been promoted to head coach, not temporarily, but on a permanent basis.
Now this came of a shock as I wouldn't think he would have had enough experience to manage at the highest level. But we have to give him a chance, so good luck Les.James - Staff Writer

Thats it, after much speculation, the Iain Dowie era of Charlton Athletic is over. Not much is known about the leaving of the ex-Palarse gaffer, but it seems that he has been sacked by the club, from reading various stories on the internet. I think it is the wrong decision by the board - if it was a sacking - but I do think that maybe it could work well.
It looks as if Alex McLeish is the favourite of taking over, after early claims that Alan Curbishley was set to return - which were quickly dismissed by the long serving ex-Addicks manager.
We will bring you more info when we hear it.James - Staff Writer

Carling Cup Round 4Charlton win 4-3 on penalties
Thank god, thank god! We have made history by reaching the Quarter Finals of the League cup for the first time, but we took our time.
The match, away at Chesterfield, had a bumpy start for the Addicks after the home side went in fron after 3 minute - oops. But none other than Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink equalled the game on the 40th minute.
The second half had another bad start after the home side once again went ahead but this time Darren Bent equalised with around 20 minutes to go.
So the game headed into extra time, with the Addicks seeming to be on top, Hasselbaink decided to go it alone and put us 3-2 in the lead. But in typical Charlton style, with 20 SECONDS
to go, Chesterfield scored an equaliser to take it into penalties.
Fortunately for us, we came through it with Carson saving two, but Hasselbaink did miss his penalty.
So quarter finals, we reached them in the FA cup last year, and with Southend beating Man Utd tonight, we really could get further!
Up the Addicks!James - Staff Writer
