The Opposition View - Charlton

The Opposition View - Charlton

In the wake of yesterday's 2-1 defeat at Charlton, here are some views on the game from Addicks' manager Chris Powell and a few of their fans.

"We had lots of chances, but equally they had one or two situations," said Powell. "Ben Hamer made some good saves, but so did their keeper."

"I always want my players to start well and they did that today, and really, we could have been out of sight, but fair play to Wycombe, they kept at it."

"They scored at a good time for them and a bad time for us just before half-time. They were in the ascendancy in the second half but we still managed to break away once or twice."

"Then Dale finished off a good move and Danny Haynes could have scored a couple more near the end, but credit to Wycombe, they kept going. They are very proud of each other and their manager, and it's been tough for them."

"They are hanging in there and I wish them all the best because they contributed to a good game today."

The Charlton fans were drunk with delight and had lots of nice things to say about us!

The following extracts are taken from Charlton Life and Not606.

"Cracking game today. Wycombe don't deserve to be where they are. Beavon was a right handful.'

"We robbed that second half but Wycombe had no right to still be in it at half time so it evened itself out really.'

"We should have been out of sight before they scored...BWP could have had a 1st half hat-trick. Once we scored in the 2nd half and everyone knew the Sheff U score, the atmosphere was upped and the last 15 mins were fantastic. fair play to the few Wycombe fans who stayed on afterwards to clap our players.'

LenGlover wrote:
"Wycombe came to win and always offered a threat and we paid the price for missed chances when they scored an equaliser that had been 'coming' as we seemed to relax towards the end of the first half. Second half was tense at times as Wycombe threatened, but when we did attack we looked dangerous and eventually Dale Stephens finished them off.'

"Great occasion - excellent effort from Wycombe who were clearly up for it.'

"Wycombe gave us a tough game and you couldn't complain if they got a point. Hamer had to make some good saves.'

"I thought their keeper might have done better for Kermorgant's free kick, but perhaps I was harsh - he was caught totally unsighted and it was a well placed and powerful shot. That said, he made some blinding saves to keep them in the game.'

Addick Addick wrote:
"24th goal of the season for Stuart Beavon and in a better team, especially with a Yann type figure alongside him, he might cut it in the Championship.'

"To get that amount of goals playing in a bottom-four team takes some doing and he was a right handful.'

AshTray wrote:
"I think he'd be worth a punt at the right price - reminded me of Bellamy. Thought Matt Bloomfield had a good second half too.'

PondersEndAddick wrote:
"The Wycombe fans were a credit to their club today with superb support and a magnificent gesture of applause for us at the end. I hope they do stay up and build on the undoubted talent that they have at their club.'

Miketyson2007 wrote:
"The Chairboys' fans were great and their team play open attractive football. I thought we were the better team in the first half and they were in the second. A draw may have been a fair result but... CHAMPIONS and it feels goooood.'

AllHellLetLoose wrote:
"Wycombe were a credit to League one. They played some good football and should have come away with a point, but this was our day. I have to say that I could see how Hayes would have helped them, with Hayes and Beavon up front I think we would have struggled.'

"Commiserations to Wycombe. If they can keep that team together they must have a great chance of bouncing back.'
