Too Much to Bear
Charlton's poor form has claimed another victim. 'Kennedy' the bear (named after New York's airport rather than the former leader of the Liberal Democrats) arguably remembers the good times more than most. He was featured in the 'fans superstitions' section of the Boxing Day 2003 programme against Chelsea, the 4-2 win that lunchtime perhaps marking the very peak of the Curbishley years.
As a result, I'd always suspected Kennedy might be a glory hunter and now he's gone and proved it. In a fit of rage after Saturday's disgraceful performance, he tore off his very own Charlton kit and swore never to wear it again.
Rest assured I have responded in an appropriate fashion, and banished him to his room with a copy of 'The Rise and Rise of Charlton Athletic: From Portokabins to Porto Captains'. That's the problem with bears these days; they don't know they've come from (China probably - Ed.)
