The big wobble

edited March 2012 in General Charlton
I hate to be the one to start this thread, but we have been know to fizzle out like a cheap sparkler towards the end of season on several occasions of the past few years. Surley we couldnt throw it away again this time around, could we?

    We've had a wake up call.

    It's not a big wobble, is it?

    The Big Wobble comes when we drop to second. Not while we're still top by miles

    Nothing wrong with having a wobble. It's when we start spiralling down into a slump you've got to worry.

    We aren't throwing anything away.

    WE ARE GOING UP 100% AS CHAMPIONS.

    Yes...the first half was an absolute nightmare and was most definately a wobble..however the way we played in the second half I fancy we'd have beaten anyone in our league playing like that.
    Not that worried as a result of the second-half showing, when we went a long way towards redeeming ourselves.
    Therefore, I don't think we're heading for a major wobble or disaster this time around.

    Spoke to Danny Green after the game, said that it was a massive kick up the arse for the team, and there were plenty of words said in the dressing room by management and players. None of them want to let it go, and they know they need to do better then the last couple of weeks.

    It's the Charlton way. Where's the fun in winning the league by the second week in march ? Two wins this week would have made the final ten games oh so boring. I'm right aren't I.

    This my hangover today says yesterday was a wake up call and a way of measuring testicular fortitude but I think I may have posted rude words on here last night

    It's been coming for a long time, and we've gotten away with it. The ostriches missd it, but this has been on the cards for a while. Hopefully now we've had a knock the we can pull out of the spin.

    Was he injured yesterday?

    I don't think we can relate previous end-of-season slip-ups to this season, the fans are about the only people around for both.
    I felt last week we had done enough to go up and this wasn't because I thought we would win every remaining game, just that we had a big enough cushion to deal with the losses.
    We were lucky that others lost on Tuesday, we weren't so lucky yesterday.

    But as for Green, I'd happily not see him back on the pitch again.

    The only "big wobble" is the guy along my row. Stands to reason that maintaing the same team and tactics each match allows a good opposition team to prepare properly; County did just that particulalry in exploiting mid-field weaknesses, but our second half response shows we can handle the situation over the remaing games. Personaly, I have faith in CP and the team learning the lesson and restoring winning ways.

    If we were to slip up and throw it away at least we would have the possibility of going to Wembo. *ducks

    Looking back, Norwich and Brighton lost games about this time in the seasons they won the league, and had less points and smaller leads. So the wobble isn't that bad.

    Glad the players have got a breather til next game but not looking forward to the panic button pressing on here this week. I'm going to pull the wiring out of my button. Jittery.

    If this is a blip/blowing it, imagine Manchester City at the moment, blowing the league to one of the most average United teams in a generation

    The OP is correct that "we have been know to fizzle out like a cheap sparkler towards the end of season", but there's no reason to link the two. This is a new team with a new manager. What's happened before is in the past. It's a bit like those match previews where they say Charlton haven't beaten xxxxx xxxx since 1934, and then you find out that the last time we played them was 1936. It's just not relevant to today.
