Tranmere and Transfers

The run goes on, bringing with it the best start to a Charlton season in history. I could not travel to Birkenhead myself but I have it on good authority that we were scintillating and in addition to the four goals that were accrued, a further two could have come had "stonewall" penalty appeals been given.

My informer also insisted that Sam was superb, Burton was brilliant but bar a few bits and pieces, Jonjo - like last week - was jaded. He even went as far as to suggest a couple of weeks out of the first eleven may benefit the precocious play-maker. I wouldn't entirely disagree.

Things are going well then. A hatful hit the net, another clean sheet was accumulated and Semedo (you know, he comes from Portugal, he.... doesn't like Millwall very much) notched his first Addicks goal. But will things remain this rosy come Tuesday.

With the takeover god knows where, fears that a few key components might be sold are still there and no concrete names have been mentioned in terms of arrivals. Parky is supposedly keen on a defender, a left-winger and another striker but time is running out. However, the man is now in the Charlton record books and I have faith he will pull something out of the hat.
