Charlton Athletic vs Fleetwood Town | Saturday 2nd September 2023 - 3pm KO | Match Preview

Charlton Athletic vs Fleetwood Town
Saturday 2nd September 2023 - 3pm Kick-Off
Referee: Carl Brook

Introduction
Nostradamus is one of the most well known Astrologers in History

He died at 62-years of age, not too long ago in fact (1566 to be exact)... His Secretary had just asked him who the Charlton Manager would be in the 2020s... All he received in response; "You will not find me alive at Sunrise" - I guess even the greatest are unable to predict the impossible.

The Opposition
Name: Fleetwood Town (23rd) | Manager: Scott Brown
Ground: Highbury Stadium
Previous League Result: Fleetwood 0-1 Shrewsbury

So we come this Saturday to the greatest moment of the Modern Age... "The Battle between the two sides who have lost five on the trot" (and breathe!!) - This after all hasn't been the best of starts for Scott Brown and his Merry Band of Cod Army - In fact, if its possible, they've made a worse start to their League campaign than the Addicks, having picked up just the one draw, an opening day 1-1 encounter at newly promoted Carlisle United.

At least Fleetwood seem to have an excuse, after all the start to their 2023/24 campaign was shrouded by the news that Chairman; Andy Pilley had been jailed for 13-years... Guilty of fraud offences... Many a Football fan will no doubt argue that they themselves have players committing similar offences.

So how will our opponents line up this coming Saturday - Well it'll be worth keeping an eye on Danny Mayor in Midfield, having signed in the summer from Plymouth Argyle - There should equally be Charlton connections on show tomorrow too, the obvious being Jayden Stockley, whilst not to be forgotten are the Academy Graduates: Junior Quitirna and Brendan Wiredu, both will looking to make an impression on their former home.

Charlton Team News
Well how will Jason Pearce setup his first squad, ahead of tomorrow's clash

Well when asked... He replied in simple terms: "Its Elementary"

After all there are now two new signings through the door this exciting of Deadline Days... Tennai Watson has joined after leaving Milton Keynes in the summer, whilst Louie Watson (no relation) has joined on loan from Luton - The latter may well miss this upcoming clash, along with any other new signings, it all depends of course on when the paperwork was completed, rather than when the announcement was made.

Take that AgilePM!!

Maynard-Brewer
Asiimwe - Jones - Ness - Edun
Anderson - Dobson - Taylor
C.Campbell
May - Blackett-Taylor

Substitutes Bench: Isted - T.Watson - Hector - T.Campbell - Camara - Kanu - Leaburn

    If Fleetwood can't get 3 points off us tomorrow they have no chance of staying up this season

    Surely all of these signings can go straight into the starting line-up...

    I was being sarcastic but my mistake for not making it more obvious.

    Of course they will, but I will be there on Saturday, same as since 1971.

    None of the new signings will be. Either ineligible or not match fit. Pearcey may go safety first and just play all the senior players who are not actually limping. With all the fit eligible youth on the bench
    So: 5-3-2
    Isted
    Asimwe Jones Hector Thomas Edun
    Camara Dobson Taylor
    May CBT

    Subs: AMB Elerewe Ness Campbell T Anderson Campbell Kanu

    1-0 = Chem Campbell. 

    Strangely optimistic about this.

    Cue Stockley hattrick...
  • Options
    I will see how the new signings do to see if they can give us a lift before writing off this season. But before they start cue Fleetwood. They are below us and will sit back and try and hit us with a set piece. Another sloppy goal conceded late on, 1-1.
  • Options
    1-0 us, hopefully

    Alfie May with the goal. If we can't keep a clean sheet against these I don't know when the next one is coming 
  • Options
    Got my ticket for tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing all the new players. What's that you say....they all signed too late to play tomorrow bar Watson (defender). Oh well, still think Pearce's new manager bounce will see us through.  

    2-0. May & Campbell.

    I think he'll go 4-4-2 but obviously I have no idea

    Isted
    Assimwe Jones Hector Edun
    TC ...Anderson Dobbo..CBT
    ...........Kanu......May

    Bench: AMB, Ness, Thomas, T. Watson, Taylor, Camara, C. Campbell

    I really hope he goes to a 4-3-3 and brings Taylor and Camara (if fit) into the midfield and drops Anderson. But I feel like Pearce the player liked a 4-4-2 with central midfielders who work hard.

    I think Chem will be first off the bench, but not quite ready to start yet. I think Leaburn will be held back as after this he'll have two full weeks before the next game. Could see him on the bench in the Pizza Trophy.

    Wait till the end of the wimdow.  These have real money 
    fuck off
    we’re destined for shitness forever

    We’ll win today, Charlton Life will be full of comments like “that’s the most fight I’ve seen from a Charlton team in years”, Pearce will be heralded as the new saviour and given the job permanently before being sacked in January after a 7 game winless run. 

    2-0 to Charlton.

    I think because we’re at home he’ll go 4 at the back, it’s the formation he played in all his career so perhaps it’s what he’s comfortable with:

    Isted

    Asimwe, Hector, Jones, Edun

    Dobson, Taylor

    CBT, C Campbell, T Campbell 

    May

    They’ve lured me back in despite last week it’s a must win though.
