We'll Be Back

We'll Be Back

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.

Yes - Hope you get back quickly - You belong in the EPL (unlike a certain other South London club who bribed their way into the top-flight) - Also, hopefully when you get back, it will be with a proper Manager (I haven't forgiven Pardew for his part in 'Lasagne Gate'! Best of Luck next year!

Thanks for your support guys. I think a season down will allow us to have a clear out and come back better and stronger. As for Bent you can have him for 20m
08/05/2007 13:06:00
20m? We'll get him for 5

No chance Hardy He's on a 5 year deal. 5 million wouldnt even buy that contract. He will only go for big money we don't need to sell

We didn't need to sell Carrick, either, but sometimes you have to, unfortunately. Shame you lot are relegated, I can think of teams I'd rather had gone down, Sheffield United being the prime example. I'm sure it won't be too long before you're back, mind.

Well bounce straight back up. Selling Bent could give us enough cash to buy a team capable of winning that league. As for Carrick you got over the top money for him and i reckkon Bent will be a similar scenario. Good luck with Europe
