Three Out Of Three.

Yeovil Town 0- Charlton Athletic 1.

Chris Powell really couldn't have hoped for a better start to his management career.

Three games played, three games won and no goals conceded.

Today's game, on a blustery afternoon in Somerset really only came alive after half time.

Both teams were apparently very poor throughout a first half only really memorable for the constant updates of Alan P****w's thrashing at home to Arsenal.
Of course, P****w and Newcastle were to come back from a 0-4 deficit which must have been a thriller to witness.

Returning to matters Charlton:
 Bradley Wright Phillips bundled the ball into the net from close range, after a Jackson corner, to give Charlton something to defend on 63 minutes.

Charlton seemed to have the benefit of some close calls by the referee, though for the second game running had to defend with backs to the wall for over 6 minutes of added on time.

Parky never really seemed to have much luck with the officials.

Today was just the kind of game where I could feel the referee giving a last minute penalty to the hosts.

Perhaps he would have done with our last, 'unlucky' manager?

At 0-0 all our rivals were winning, then the equalisers started, and then we scored. The drama went on until Peterborough equalised at about ten past seven.

As an English rugby fan, the weekend couldn't really have gone much better for me. Hopefully this is the turning point of our season.

I think Bradley would be a little miffed to hear his peachy header described as "bundle the ball home"
