Relegation from the Premiership was confirmed last night as Charlton failed to beat Spurs.
Charlton needed to win to have any chance of staying up, but we got off to the worst possible start after Berbatov broke clear and curled the ball home after just 7 minutes.
Charlton showed plenty of battle and fight, but we never looked likely in beating Robinson. The fans stayed proud throughout and the atmosphere was top notch, considering the circumstances.
Spurs looked like a side battling for European football and you can have no complaints, we were no where near good enough.
Jermaine Defoe came on late to add injury to insult and crashed home Spurs' second of the night. He is someone we should be pleased we will not be facing next season as he always finds the net against us.
The game finished 2-0 to Spurs and our relegation was sealed.
After the match, Charlton manager Alan Pardew said: 'The league table speaks for itself, there's no politics involved, no court cases, this is where it's at.
'What we have to do is focus on our last league game and make sure we leave this division with pride.'
'I'd love West Ham to stay up because there are a lot of people there I love.'
We'll be back... mark my words.
