Your favourite Charlton loss...

What game, if any, do you still hold dear and remember enjoying despite us losing.

Mine's this one. I wasn't there, but remember listening to the game and being chuffed with Charlton even though we got nothing from it.

    Vs Tottenham at home when we got relegated as well. That moment of class from Berbatov and then greedy bastard grabbing the second while VFR rang out loud and proud.

    I remember we put in a blinding performance against Norwich at the end of the 2009/2010 season. It was the day they won promotion at The Valley and beat us 1-0. We absolutely played them off the park and gave everything, but their keeper wouldn't be beaten.

    Isn't favorite Charlton loss an oxymoron?
    I hate all losses.

    Was at that game Olster, I left the game so drained and absolutely gutted because we didn't win that. Those highlights don't show the absolute sitter PDC missed just before their winner either. Also remember it kicking off in the home end after Parkers equaliser and seeing some bird raining down hammer fists on some guy three rows in front of her.

    Not necessarily, you can hate some less than others.

    We're not Barcalona, we're not going to win everything and we're not Liverpool and think that we should win everything.

    Agree totally with this.

    Arsenal away the 4nil. Although we got spanked it was our first visit to the emirates and pardew had just taken over, everybody was full of optimism and we d just beaten villa. Real sense that the corner had been turned and we could escape. At the end of the match despite the result their fans had poured out ours stayed on singing VFR.

    Didnt quite work out... But that springs to mind as a game where genuine optimism and happiness was felt at the end despite such a comprehensive loss.

    Bit different as we didn't expect to get anything from the game, but I had a great time at Fulham in January this year. 7000 Charlton fans at my favourite ground in British football. "The FA Cup, who gives a f**k, we're top of the league and we're going up"

    Agreed, that was a classic case where we genuinely weren't bothered about the result - league points and getting out of the terrible L1 were all that counted - so could enjoy ourselves.

    Old Trafford 1994 (Schmeichel, 'things can only get better') springs to mind too

    2-1 away to Liverpool in the FA Cup, after going through against Bristol City (also a great tie).
    Seeing Kim Grant grab a well deserved and well taken consolation towards the end will never be forgotten. A fantastic day out.

    Agree with Bedsaddick, a really special day and despite the result the singing and the banter made the trip back easy. Not often your feeling chirpy after a 3-1 defeat.

    A 3:2 defeat at anfield in a night game during our second season in the old 1st division. Went ahead twice via crooks & Walsh.

    4-0 away at millwall... oh favourite loss.

    Prob the 0-1 against Norwich at home when they won promotion. We battered them but just couldn't stick the ball in the back of the net.

    7-0 Brighton away, early '80's
    5-0 down at halftime, I knew we'd lost.

    Still have nightmares about Brighton. Giving it large to a bloke behind me and then slowing sinking in to the seat as the goals went in.

    Didn't Lennie Lawrence just sit in the dug out at half time? My dad's gone about that game before. Might have tied in with a 5-0 loss at Bristol Rovers as well (or that may have been Burnley).

    Will have a think, the Man U '94 game Liverpool in '96 are up there. As a young 'un they were the first big grounds I went to.

    We beat Brentford 3-2 at home before the Liverpool game in 96. The Bristol City game was the round before United in 94.

    New Years Eve at Leyton. The game I can't remember too much, but the day was absolutely brilliant!!! Drinking Jaeger at 11am on the tube was a good start to the day.

    5-3 at Highbury, 2000-1. We led twice, and it took a couple of decent goals to see us off. I left thinking "well, we gave them a scare...you know, i think this time we really might be able to survive in this league".

    To be truthful I cant remember that much about the game.
    At 5-0 down we ask a policeman to let us out. He told us he'd just let a group out and they had started fighting with his officers. So he didn't let anymore out and told to enjoy the game.
    My friends rolled up some interesting tobacco substitute and that made it my favourite loss.

    3-2 loss at home to eventual champions Arsenal on Boxing Day 1988, gave them a real fright in last 20 minutes.

    all been mentioned, Fulham & Man U in the Cup and Norwich (my lad was a mascot that day).

    So many losses away from home to remember any in particular, tend to just remember the 'day out' or the 'weekend away' and the experiences that goes with them, my old mate always said to me NEVER rely on the result to 'make the day'....too true where Charlton's concerned.

    Never experienced one; show me a good loser and you've just found a poor winner :-o Having said that Man Utd away in the Cup wasn't a bad day out :-)

    Notts County at home in March. We lost 4-2 but we were top and going up. I won money on Waggy scoring and I was off to Vegas for a stag do the next morning. I am usually in a foul mood when Charlton lose but this time I was OK with it.
