Just a short report tonight, it seemed like a boring match, but Charlton managed to get an important away point tonight at the Reebok. A good confidence builder going into Saturdays match against Chelsea.
Both sides had their chances to win tonight, but it ended with the single goal a piece. James - Staff Writer

Date: Saturday October 22nd 2005
Venue: Fratton Park
Score: PFC 1 - 2 CAFC
That was the last time we won on our travels, 15 long months ago. Today, we ended that dreadful record and beat Portsmouth 1-0, at the same ground we recorded our last away win so long ago.
It seemed like a dreadully boring match, but from 5Live's commentary, it sounded as if Charlton were on top for most of the match.
When I checked at half time and it was still 0-0 I was pleased. I never thought we would go on to win the damn thing!
It all happened with just over 10 minutes to go, former Pompey favourite Amady Faye popped up and scored. And what a goal that proved to be, we managed to hang on and clinch the victory. What a way to lift the spirits of the team and the fans. We deserved this. We needed this.James- Staff Writer

Sorry I haven't been able to comment on this match, it was a poor effort by the Addicks.

Yes, Charlton are out of another trophy and the rings of "We are not a cup club" ring through our ears again.
To be honest, if it hadn't been for a moment of madness in the first half, we might have won or taken the match to a replay. Now many fans would disagree with the fact that I'd have liked Charlton to have a great run in a cup this season, which we are fully capable of, because our FA Cup run was great last season, hense the reason why I took my drum up to the Riverside in the amazing QF replay.
Today was a dissapointment, but I guess it fully leaves us to concentrate on Premiership survival, which is still looking iffy.
Bad news in the Press today is that Pards looks as if he is going to listen to offers for Benty. That is not what I like to hear :(
But lets get behind the lads at next weeks game, like we did at Arsenal, and cheer the lads on to Premiership survival.James - Staff Writer

A match I had been looking forward to for a while, I really wanted to see what the new home of Arsenal - The Emirates Stadium - was like in real life. And boy it was nice. The seats were annoying but oh so comfortable, the atmosphere was great, pitch was great. It felt like we were playing in Europe for some reason, it was surreal!
The match was poor, but we couldn't really help it as Osei Sankofa was sent of early on, conceding a penalty when it clearly didn't seem like one, but ref Riley thought so.
Sadly thats when the onslaught started, with Justin Hoyte scoring his debut Premiership goal for the Gunners just on the stroke of half time.
We survived most of the 2nd half at 2-0, but towards the end we let it slip with Diawara conceding a penalty and then Van Persie breaking clear and scoring a 4th.
But us fans didn't let our heads dip, we continued cheering our team, even when they scored their 4th against us! We outsung the poor Gunners support and we stayed and applauded the team. Much respect goes to Holland and Rommedahl who seemed to be the only two players who practically came within touching distance of the away fans to applaud them.
Unlucky Addicks, but the future is bright.James - Staff Writer
