Some nostalgia from 1982

If you're from the same Charlton-supporting generation as me (born: 1973), you can't fail to enjoy every second of this video that I stumbled across.

The game was hardly a classic, but the mistake for the Watford goal is 'vintage Les Berry'.

How ironic too that the '18-year old John Barnes' who missed this encounter, would ultimately end up playing for the Addicks 17 years later, having picked up 79 caps in the intervening period. Great stuff.

That was trip down memory lane, NYA. I was in the crowd on the big terrace with my Dad that day.

When you look back at The Valley then, compared to today, you can see how far we've come in recent years.

Does anyone know whether Billy Lansdowne ever returned from Sweden. What a good player he was!
