Ten years ago: Hornets have no sting

Charlton went to Watford placed 2nd in the table, although the programme reminded us that they had been relegation favourites at the start of the season.

My notes recall, 'We started brightly, but Watford took their chance and went 1-0 ahead.' The Bloke Behind Me, who lives in the Luton area, was making a rare appearance at an away game and he could soon be heard shouting 'somebody help him', 'keep it on the ground' and 'play football Charlton' which at least reassured me that I hadn't turned up at an egg chasing ground by mistake.

Watford started brightly in the second half, but Johnnie Robinson soon got the equaliser, followed by Lee Bowyer in a goalmouth scramble. If it hadn't been for the Watford keeper (Miller) it could have been 3-1 or 4-1. The Addickted were in fine form, chanting 'The Reds are going up.'

For all the success, Jonathan Acworth had a letter in Voice of the Valley stating 'My message to Curbishley is sort your act out now.'
