Chris Powell sent off at Watford

An unusual sight

Former Charlton legend Chris Powell was sent off for a second yellow card offence in the 0-1 victory of the Blades over the Hornets at Vicarage Road last night. I don't know when Powell, who chairs the Professional Footballers Association, was last sent off, but it must be a long time ago.

I was watching the scoreline on Sky Sports News hoping that it would stay at 0-0 and that, if possible, players would be sent off from both sides. The late Blades goal means that even if we beat them at Bramall Lane on Saturday we can't overtake them and will remain rooted in the drop zone. We have a mountain to climb, but we have to rely on our own results, not on others getting the right result (remember when we were relegated by the other Sheffield club).

I was amused to see that Michael Grade's bright red socks were featured on the news last night as demonstrating that he was 'a modern media man'. I think they show that he is Charlton through and through.

Hooch the Pooch took trainee dog reporter Ivy for a training walk yesterday along the Grand Union Canal that runs alongside his Long Itchington home. Ivy will report on Saturday for training in the offside rule, with Monty Martin named as match analyst for Bramall Lane. Ivy received a lesson in showing respect from cats from formidable local ginger tom, Arthur Hands.

A win for us on Saturday would take us above watford, unless they won as well = every game we now play are must win games, sheffield, Blakcburn and Spurs all around the corner, six points from this group would be very welcome. The performance of the last 15 minutes after the goal on Saturday, show we have the ability, we now need the application and the confidence.
