Routine victory over Chelsea

Charlton's reserves beat Chelsea reserves 3-0 at The Valley last night. Mind you, no one had heard of any of the Chelsea players. They obviously don't do reserve football in Portugal (or anywhere else for that matter?)

Reports indicate that Harry Redknapp and Steve Bruce were seen at the game. We badly need offers for the likes of Euell so that we can reduce the wages bill and afford some new additions.

Reserves correspondent Clive Richardson reports:

It was 2-0 to the Addicks when I left, 10 minutes from time. Deano had maybe two shots to save all night. Barry Fuller played a blinder, Sankofa and Perry solid in the middle, Wilson steady, Ashton- best game I've seen him play. Euell got better/more involved as the game went on. Thomas a class above 'em all when he bothered, but disappeared for long spells, likewise Lisbie, and Both didn't really
command in the air despite his height. Gislason good at times but a bit lightweight.

First goal from fine set piece delivery by Thomas, wide left (one of several early on), loose ball fell to Sankofa who drilled home hard and low.Second, good cross from Lisbie, flicked on by good Gislason header, with Jase coming in at the far post to nod powerfully in.

Several 'Monday night' decisions by ref and west stand lino....
Our 'senior pros' seemed to take about half-an hour to get 'interested'
