Back On the train- Charlton

by PistolPete » 27 Feb 2016 18:36

Man for man, much better.

Hello John was too good for their right back, Kemit with a few moments of class. But, somehow, we needed a scrappy set piece to win it?!

Great atmosphere in the away end, pints need to be lined up Much quicker at half time ... ;)

It is what it is, We move on.

Reading 4-3 Sonogo. Can't remember any of the rest of their team do anything of merit.

Through all the years I'd somehow not made it to the Valley before. I will not be rushing back. Awful shed of an away end with nothing like enough bar space, tiny seats and what has to be close to the worst view of the goal line in the football league.

No one stood out as brilliant, Kermorgant got his goals and an assist but faded, HRK worked hard, Obita was pretty good. No counter to Sanogo though, absolutely dominant against us.

Ola John...the sublime and the ridiculous. Dances round their defense one minute, falls over on the ball for no reason the next. Gave away the ball cheaply for their first.

Can't fault McDermott (other than maybe bringing on a clearly out of sorts Williams). The problem at the back was as simple as Sanogo being better than our defenders. He threw Rackels on at the end rather than settling again and hats off, it worked.

Obviously low on quality all round, but 7 goal thriller for a fiver? Don't mind if I do.

The highlights are already on the Sky Sports website and it looked a very open game!! Kermie's second goal was a peach and their third looked like it rebounded luckily off Sanogo into the net.

The goal that never was after his hand ball...we'd have been seeing that for some time.

Ref has a good game btw, Lino to our left was awful though.

Was going to ask what was up with the disallowed goal? Would have been up there with goal of the season.


From the highlights Ola John looked to be sensational.

For all the complaining (which I was a part of) it looked a pretty slam dunk hand ball. Sure it hit him, but his hands were up around his chest/neck.

Well that went from the sublime to the ridiculous and back to the sublime. Good to see the old Reading spirit back after capitulating to 3-3 not so good to see the return of the Fulham style defensive collapse.

I know I keep going on about it but Gunter was dreadful. To allow the amount of crosses into the box that he does is absolutely inexcusable. They spotted he was the weak link and every attack they had was targeted down his side.

Difficult to judge man of the match as the second half undid all the work done in the first but I'd probably say John nabbed it despite his mistake for the first goal.

Really? I thought, for the number of fans we had there, we were embarrassingly quiet.

Good to see fans from the opposition come on here. How did the protest go?

Maybe he was from the quieter left side of the stand. #shotsfired #rightsidearmy

Good start to the game, good atmosphere but then somehow we lost it in the second half.

Not sure I can add too much analysis as I've really drunk too much beer, but it was good away win that should have been comfortable but somehow we had to work for it.

Was a very strange game for a high scorer, long periods of dross followed by a couple of mad spells in both halves!

Defences looked like being breached continuously when either team had good spells, thought al-habsi had another good game, despite conceding three.

Bit worrying to see Norwood having poor games against two of worst teams of the league this week, we really need him in these sort of games to control the midfield and provide ammunition to the wingers and kermit more often than he has been....

Anyway, onwards and upwards!

Kermorgant spent too much time out wide.

Agreed. If he had been more central he might have scored.

Sounded pretty loud in the first half in the radio, albeit much quieter in the second.

Obviously I'm very happy when he scored. Perhaps I'm wrong and the fact that he got two goals means that he spent the full 90 minutes in the middle, but I (clearly wrongly) noted that he was often working the wing leaving no-one in the middle for a cross, resulting in a load of short passes and losing the ball. The bloke behind me wrongly noticed the same thing.

Realistically, he's a striker who scored two goals, excellent job, very happy, just thought If he'd been in the box a bit more he could have had his hat-trick+ and the game could have been killed off by 70 minutes.

I may be wrong, I admit that, it was just my subjective view.

Ady Williams is also the guy who said last week:

"I noticed the ball boys have made a return this week. Every time the ball went out, one would go and get the ball and throw it back in. Just like the old days"

And

"The west Brom fans in the ... What stand is that?" ... Tim says "south" ... "Yes the west Brom fans in the south stand"
