Charlton last night were disappointing but showed signs of a new Charlton as they were passing the ball around more quickly and frequently. The players like Jack Munns and Harry Lennon, the two youngsters, that we have been overseeing for the past few weeks were not up to standard. They lost the ball many times within the game but it was not as bad as Loic Nego who showed an impressive amount of skill but lacked passing ability.
The side that I was impressed with was on the left wing as Morgan Fox and Franck Moussa linked up well with each other to create a few threatening chances for the Charlton Boys. Morgan Fox showed more pace than anything and really impressed up the left flank.
We saw a glimpse of Zak Ansah and he didn't really do too much and I don't have much faith that he will shoot through the ranks such as Jordan Cousins and Callum Harriott have done. However, you don't have to score goals all the time to be a good striker, you can play around with the defence and make the centre back chase after you so that your team mates can fill in the position he has left open and then have the space around him to score the goals with patience.
We also got to see Nick Pope in action, he made a few admirable saves saves but also let in two goals but we can't put the full blame on him as the defence was not up to standard. He has also shown he can be a great keeper as he did with York City, keeping many clean sheets during his time on loan. So hopefully we could be looking at the new Sam Bartram!
But the pressure is on him as he is our only professional keeper and at the age of 22 that is some pressure on the young lad.
Hopefully today we will get to see Igor Vetokele in action as he as played at the highest level of European football and proved that he can be a lethal striker in the Danish League so hopefully he will do the same for us in the Championship.
Yoni Buyens seemed like he was on Standards side for most of the game as he was losing the ball quite a lot within the game but he better not play those shenanigans come the start of the season.
So what will Charlton give to us tonight? A win? A draw? A loss? We hope its not the last answer in there we all hope for the first!
COME ON YOU REDS!!
