NYA are you like borderline racist or something. Your blog is definetly something we enjoy reading, but the whole Africa thing, or foreign player issues are contrary the offical club antiracism in football theme.

Since we understand you to be an Expat in NYC it seems strange that you would have issues with overseas workers in the UK.

Makes you wonder who they let in the States these days!

Chill out, LA.

Within the context of the theme (frustration of the season so far and the desperate need for new players of any colour or creed)there's nothing racist going on here.

The Charlton team is truly multi-racial and in my experience, any criticsm is implied purely on grounds of performance within a failing team.

If you didn't do your own job satisfactorily, I am sure you too would be open to criticsm - regardless of your race or country of birth.

I might apply for this. I've spent some time recently hanging around doing nothing but more recently I've become deadly in the box.

LA, I'm not sure if you've missed the irony of my posts or I've missed the irony of your comment. Either way one of us has been spending too long in the US.

Good Lord! Who are these folks who spring out from behind the rightous curtain, every time a foreign (I trust that word is still permissable?) culture or country is referred to ?

Perhaps the irony of the post has been lost ?

So in plain english (oops - is that OK?)- We have a Danish player who we pay a lot of money, who is absolute crap. We have a Bulgarian who tries hard who is absolute crap, an Icelander, a Morrocan, some English and so on and so forth -AND we have recently paid a lot of money for some players from Africa, who are absolute crap.

Now lock me up and throw away the key.

I guess my attempts at journalism is best kept nonpublic, I'll sit back and let you do all the work! Did you notice they played our lastest loss 3 times over here. At least back home we'd only have to live through it once. Sorry didnt think it was such a wind-up.
