Can the smile get any wider? Another week, another win as the reborn Addicks claim another 3 points at Brentford.
When I left the UK the final London derby I saw was against Spurs. It was the game that consigned Charlton to the Championship. It was a miserable game.
This London derby, 2 leagues lower than the Premiership, seems far from a classic, but winning when playing below par at places where previous results had been poor is a sign that the this is team that wants Championship football next season.
Next week it’s Huddersfield who are undefeated in the league for 46 games (they’ve lost the important play-off games though!). This will be another big test of the Addicks promotion credentials. I can’t wait.
