    Absolutely - we will win by six clear goals.

    c) How many do you think you`ll bring now that it`s a televised Sunday fixture?

    Probably the 0-0 draw with Oldham a couple of weeks back.

    b) What was your greatest home performance / occasion? You'll have to ask the wife

    3. FANS

    c) Who are your most famous fans? Henry Irving and Bjorn Borg
    d) Any original chants? ooh fatty Garland

  • edited October 2009
    1 MATCH
    a) What was your reaction to the draw? Oh dear this could be embarrassing given our cup record!
    b) You must surely be confident of victory on the day? This is Charlton in the cup. We don't "do" cups!
    c) How many do you think you`ll bring now that it`s a televised Sunday fixture? Given that anybody who can't drink 15 pints and abuse the very old and very young are not allowed to attend away games not many! :-)

    2. GROUND
    a) Have there been any funny/ dramatic incidents at your matches? Coming back from 5-1 down with 10 men to win 7-6 against Huddersfield was dramatic in 1957. More recently (1998) drawing 4-4 with Sunderland after extra time and winning 7-6 on penalties in the 1998 play off final at Wembley to gain promotion to the premiership.

    b) What was your greatest home performance / occasion? Tough one to answer. In recent times the 1997/8 play off semi final against Ipswich which we won 1-0 to play Sunderland in the final mentioned above. The Valley rocked that night!!

    c) What, as suppoerters, is the significance of winning the Valley back? Quite simply it heralded the rebirth of the Club. Exile to Selhurst almost killed us. Had Lennie Lawrence not gained us promotion to the old first division in 85/6 the Club almost certainly would have died during that exile.


    3. FANS

    a) Who are your main rivals? Older fans will answer Millwall youngsters Crystal Palace

    b) Any eccentric/ OTT supporters? A few!

    c) Who are your most famous fans? We have a few Bjorn Borg is arguably the most famous.

    d) Any original chants? The Jorge Costa song which is now the Semedo song.

    4. CLUB/ `STATUS`

    a) Is your set-up still producing a stream of talent? Yes. As we have plummetted through the divisions more of our youngsters have gained first team opportunities.

    b) What are CAFC`s ambitions? To get back to the Championship at the very least.

    c) Why the nickname `Addicks`? Various versions. The most credible, probably, is the fishmonger, Arthur Bryant, who supplied the team with 'addick and chips after matches in the early days of the Club prior to World War 1.

    5. TEAM
    a) Please name your best players of the past / legends? Sam Bartram, Derek Hales, Chris Powell, Richard Rufus for starters.

    b) Who are you best players currently? Most promising player is Jonjo Shelvey. Christian Dailly has come in and proved a positive influence on the rest of the back 4.

    c) What system and formation do you play? Until recently 4-5-1. Then 4-4-2. After saturday we might revert back to 4-5-1.

    d) What`s your gaffer like? Marmite. Some rate him others don't.


    6. TOWN/ NEARBY

    a) What`s it like living near the Valley? Many of us were brought up near The Valley but increasing London house prices forced us out into the depths of Kent so we don't live near it anymore!

    b) Any famous people/ celeb`s from the Charlton area? Not sure about Charlton itself off hand but Steve Davis the snooker player was born a couple of miles down the road and watched us as a lad.

    c) Does Greenwich / the Charlton area stand to benefit for the Olympics 2012? Some say yes others say no!

    Shelvey, Wagstaff/Basey/Tuna/Elliott, so yes

    c) Does Greenwich / the Charlton area stand to benefit for the Olympics 2012?

    Should do, already impressed with the new DLR link from Woolwich as South East London is sparse for tube lines.

  • 1 MATCH
    a) What was your reaction to the draw? I wonder if wifey will let me go to that one. Followed 5 minutes later (and a quick look at google maps) by "I hope its on TV"
    b) You must surely be confident of victory on the day? I'd like to think so but the FA Cup is usually a great leveller and our cup pedigree is pants to say the least. If the pitch is nice then we will play good attacking football. It it's muddy and lumpy I expect us to scrape a draw.
    c) How many do you think you`ll bring now that it`s a televised Sunday fixture? Televised on a Sunday afternoon is going to kill the numbers - 500 - 700 I'd guess

    2. GROUND
    a) Have there been any funny/ dramatic incidents at your matches? Ball bursting in FA Cup final (twice in fact). Peter Shirtliff scoring twice in the last 4 minutes of the play off final to maintain our existence in the topflight at the expense of Leeds
    b) What was your greatest home performance / occasion? 7-6 Vs Huddersfield probably as previously mentioned
    c) What, as suppoerters, is the significance of winning the Valley back? It's our home and was full of history. Smellhurst park and Upton Park were never home.

    3. FANS
    a) Who are your main rivals? Millsmall and Crystal Palace
    b) Any eccentric/ OTT supporters? Jonathon Acworth. A strange chap who constantly raves about non league players nobody has heard of and complains when we don't sign them.
    c) Who are your most famous fans? Bjorn Borg, Ruud van Nistelrooy and Karim Benzema (no really), Steve Backley, Jim Davidson, Jack Penate
    d) Any original chants? Valley Floyd Road - to the tune of Mull of Kintyre (though it's nicked from Crewe or Notts Forest I believe)

    4. CLUB/ `STATUS`
    a) Is your set-up still producing a stream of talent? Yes - relegations and finances mean we are reliant on our academy. Not a bad thing in my opinion as people like Scott Wagstaff are getting a chance now
    b) What are CAFC`s ambitions? Ultimately to get back to the Premiership but certainly this year we need to get out of League 1
    c) Why the nickname `Addicks`? Fish suppers for players back many many years ago

    5. TEAM
    a) Please name your best players of the past / legends? Sam Bartam, Rob Lee, Bob Bolder, Chris Powell, Dean Kiely, Clive Mendonca.
    b) Who are you best players currently? Jonjo Shelvey is the future but in terms of technical ability Therry Racon has two of the quickest feet in the game and Jose Semedo is like Arnold Schwarzenegger's tougher brother. Special mention to our Left Back Kelly Youga who has had a Lazarus style rebirth this season and transformed from a clown into a Roberto Carlos clone (minus the shooting ability)
    c) What system and formation do you play? 451 or 442 depending on opponents (451 seems preferred)
    d) What`s your gaffer like? Quiet, gets on with his job with the minimum of fuss. Respected for the start to the season but now we need to see if he is adaptable as teams are starting to "know" us and our tactics.

    6. TOWN/ NEARBY
    a) What`s it like living near the Valley? I don't but every time I go there it looks more and more run-down.
    b) Any famous people/ celeb`s from the Charlton area? Karl Howman (Jacko from Brush Strokes)
    c) Does Greenwich / the Charlton area stand to benefit for the Olympics 2012? Hoping so as it's one of the plus points in our attempts to sell the club
  • 1 MATCH
    a) What was your reaction to the draw?

    Great - it's what the cup is all about and as we are in the 1st round for the first time for many years, the perfect draw.

    b) You must surely be confident of victory on the day?

    Not a chance - have you seen our cup record in the last 50 years!

    c) How many do you think you`ll bring now that it`s a televised Sunday fixture?

    About 800, it's a pity as we would have taken far more on Saturday - plus we are in a run of 4 consecutive away games. However, balance that with the fact that you get a lot of money from Sky.

    2. GROUND
    a) Have there been any funny/ dramatic incidents at your matches?

    Claus Jensen scorong with a 'knee' rebound.

    b) What was your greatest home performance / occasion?

    Probably the 3-3 against ManU

    c) What, as suppoerters, is the significance of winning the Valley back?

    It means everything, the heart of the club.

    3. FANS
    a) Who are your main rivals?

    Millwall, but as others have said, Palarse for the younger generation.

    b) Any eccentric/ OTT supporters?

    Dennis is our leader.

    c) Who are your most famous fans?

    Rodney Trotter.

    d) Any original chants?

    Goodbye Horse.

    4. CLUB/ `STATUS`
    a) Is your set-up still producing a stream of talent?

    Best for years, many having the opportunity to come hrough since we left the Premiership.

    b) What are CAFC`s ambitions?

    Back to the premiership, but realistically challenging for promotion from Championship.

    c) Why the nickname `Addicks`?

    Fishmonger, Haddock on a stick, early-20th century humour.


    5. TEAM
    a) Please name your best players of the past / legends?

    Derek Hales, Clive Mendonca, Sam Bartram, Chris Powell.

    b) Who are you best players currently?

    Semedo, Youga.

    c) What system and formation do you play?

    4 5 1, sometimes 4 4 2.

    d) What`s your gaffer like?

    Likeable but still to be proved if he is strong enough - signs are positive.


    6. TOWN/ NEARBY
    a) What`s it like living near the Valley?

    Moved away some time back, but always enjoyed it.

    b) Any famous people/ celeb`s from the Charlton area?

    Daniel Day-Lewis but he decided to support the Spanners.

    c) Does Greenwich / the Charlton area stand to benefit for the Olympics 2012?

    I'm not convinced.
  • 1 MATCH

    b) You must surely be confident of victory on the day?
    I've been in Northwich Victoria once and it wasn't a whoehearted success. The bitch.

    b) What was your greatest home performance / occasion? Rather not say, wife was away.
    c) What, as suppoerters, is the significance of winning the Valley back? It meant that once again, we could drink in the Waterman's Arms and Horse and Groom

    3. FANS
    a) Who are your main rivals? Cricket and rugby union
    b) Any eccentric/ OTT supporters? Some bloke thinks he's Elvis

    Would have sold out if it was on Saturday, now around 1k.

    a) Have there been any funny/ dramatic incidents at your matches?

    In a few years time I'll probably be able to view the past 3 seasons as being quite funny!

    5. TEAM
    a) Please name your best players of the past / legends?

    The combined awesomeness of our 5 man midfield of destruction.

    No disrespect, but it was a reminder of how far we have we fallen to be playing a non-league team in the first round of the FA Cup. However, its what the FA Cup is all about.

    b) You must surely be confident of victory on the day?

    We should win comfortably, but if this seasons league cup exit against Hereford is anything to go by then Parkinson will make several changes, due to our small squad and we'll be knocked out in the first round!

    c) How many do you think you`ll bring now that it`s a televised Sunday fixture?

    2 - 300 tops

    2. GROUND
    a) Have there been any funny/ dramatic incidents at your matches?

    b) What was your greatest home performance / occasion?

    Huddersfield 2-1 - the first half decent team we've played this year, so it was good to get a victory against a team you'd expect to be challenging at the top with us at the end of the season. Good to see a mixture of the senior side and the kids beat Barnet 4-1 in the JPT as well.

    c) What, as supporters, is the significance of winning the Valley back?
    The Valley is the most important thing about our club - I expect us to move of we are eventually taken over though.

    3. FANS
    a) Who are your main rivals?

    Palace and Millwall. Gillingham like to think they are.

    b) Any eccentric/ OTT supporters?
    Anyone on Charlton Life.

    c) Who are your most famous fans?
    Michael Grade, the bloke off the Flash adverts, Jim Davidson...Ruud Van Nistelrooy?

    d) Any original chants?
    No, we just knick everyone elses and change the words.

    4. CLUB/ `STATUS`
    a) Is your set-up still producing a stream of talent?
    No other choice at the moment

    b) What are CAFC`s ambitions?
    Premiership football again within the next 5 years should be a realistic aim.

    c) Why the nickname `Addicks`?
    Apparently our players used to get Haddock and chips and 'Addick is apparently how we all say Haddock!?


    5. TEAM
    a) Please name your best players of the past / legends?
    Super Clive Mendonca, Rufus, Kinsella, Parker, Darren Bent, Kiely

    b) Who are you best players currently?
    Elliot, Bailey, Burton, Sodje, Shelvey

    c) What system and formation do you play?
    we started the season (unbeaten) with a 4-5-1 but when Oldham came to The Valley and celebrated a 0-0 draw as if they'd just won the world cup, Parkinson panicked and changed to a 4-4-2.

    d) What`s your gaffer like?
    Last season - rubbish. This season - Brilliant.

    6. TOWN/ NEARBY
    a) What`s it like living near the Valley?

    We all live in Medway in Gillinghams "rightful" catchment area so we wouldn't know ;)
    b) Any famous people/ celeb`s from the Charlton area?

    b) Not overly confident of a win as we hae been through tuff times recently and the FA cup is all abouot how youo play on the day.

    c) Depends on how much allocation you give us but should be about 500 at most i would have thought

    2 a) Yea a few incidents happen a few times each season but i sit at the top of Covered end so dont always get to see what happens

    b) Well im only 22 so some of the other heads on here will prob remember better days but one of my favorites was Charlton 5-1 Southampton and we went top of the prem that day.
