  • This is their 5th season since 
  • Jonny Williams was 20 years old when Roland bought Charlton.
  • The FA sanctions the transfer of a player from Charlton to A.N.Other FC without any request, offer or transaction to Charlton.
    In the same week the FA refuses to sanction the transfer of a player to Charlton from a side that agrees that the transfer is agreed and complete, on the pretext of some quibble over timing within seconds, then are so shaky on their position they clam up and say and do nothing for over a week.
    Do you think the FA even knows that Charlton Athletc WFC and CAFC aren't the same entity?
  • Man Utd have never lost a home premier league match in which they've been leading at half time.

    Record is now (a quite remarkable) 264 wins and 16 draws.
  • This Saturday will be exactly 17 months since Barnsley last lost at home
  • Teemu Pukki has as many PL hat-tricks as Cristiano Ronaldo and Dennis Bergkamp

    Millwall FC are the only team to play in an FA Cup final and not have a shot, either on or off target. 
    But their fans had a sniff

    Wrong.

    They lost to Carlisle on Tuesday night in the Carabao Cup.
  • Adam Johnson spent 3 years in prison but he’s still scored a Premier League hat trick more recently than any Manchester United player
  • Anthony Martial reached 50 goals for Manchester United faster than Cristiano Ronaldo did
  • Martial has 50 goals for Man U already??? That alone is bizarre. Thought he was in the teens or mid 20s...
  • Shaka Hislop has a degree from Washington University and served an internship at NASA. 
  • Dennis Rommedahl only ever got one assist for Charlton.


  • Who wants to tell them we went down that year...
    A stark reminder that starting well doesn't ensure safety.
  • Charlton are unbeaten in their first four games back in the Championship and have scored in every game, despite what should have been strong opposition in 3/4 games. 

    Blackburn 2-1
    Stoke 3-1
    Barnsley 2-2
    Nottingham Forest 1-1
  • Adam Johnson has more assists in the last 6 PL seasons than Jesse Lingard.

    He’s also been with more 15 year old girls as well. 
  • The truth about how we signed Hemed after the 5pm transfer deadline, sounds unbelievable
  • Patrick van Aanholt is only the second player to score a stoppage-time winner against Man Utd in Premier League history..........and the first to do so at Old Trafford.
  • Former Brazilian captain, Socrates, was qualified as a medical doctor.
  • Not sure if we should be delighted that we're so efficient, or slightly concerned that we've not created much against some of the divisions lesser sides, which doesn't bode well for when we play the top sides.

    Was thinking the same initially. But looking at it positively, we’ve scored one more goal than Leeds and they’ve taken 56 more shots than us. Better to be clinical than wasteful.

    We scored yesterday BECAUSE Leko shot. It was on target but without the deflection the keeper would most likely have saved it. More shots will inevitably mean more goals (as long as the majority are on target or close to). If you don't buy a ticket you can't win the raffle. Simples.

    Leeds results are also very similar to ours despite the extra shots.

    1-0 v Brentford. 1-1 v Forest. 3-0 v Stoke.
