Coneheads come to The Valley

I had some difficulty working out which planet West Ham's front man the Egg came from, so I am grateful to this suggestion from Bob Miller, an Addick from Hamilton, Ontario.

Needless to say, this is a crucial match for both teams. The Addickted seem to be really up for it, whereas the Hampsters are full of gloom and doom, fearing it will be the end of their season. Of course, one possible result in a derby match is a draw which would be no good for either side.

Even if Charlton do win, Wigan are effectively seven points ahead of us given their superior goal difference. I think there is still a possibility that Manchester City could drop into it. Foreign buyers are circling Moonchester, but that may not be good news as the Wet Spam example shows.

Our record at home against the Irons in the Premiership has been a good one, three wins and two draws, one a 4-4.

Darren Bent should be available. There must be a question mark about how match fit he is, but I would certainly start with him given the alternatives. I would put Marcus Bent alongside him. Luke Young may also be available, while El Karkouri returns from suspension. There is no news of Andy Reid and we really need a playmaker to feed Darren Bent. For all the honest endeavour of Matt Holland, who has shown total commitment to the cause, midfield remains our greatest weakness.

Senior match analyst Hooch the Pooch will be covering this vital match.
