Thumb Twiddling.

At the start of the season, I remember having a game of 'prediction' with Chicago Addick who was over for the first game against Bournemouth.

The end of the previous season had been less than inspiring but the unprecedented changes to the playing staff at the Valley had lead me towards cautious optimism.

I said that I'd be pretty happy with a Play Off place and the end of season lottery.

As it turned out, my prediction fell way short of reality and Charlton strolled towards the title with 2 games to spare.

So, our summer has started a little earlier than I expected/hoped for.
No Play Offs.

I must admit it did feel odd waking up on Saturday without even a thought about the mighty reds and how they'd be faring.

The team are on 'vacation' in Las Vegas so I doubt there'll be any transfer news for a while.

I intend to enjoy the hiatus.

Ah but be honest CC. Tell them that I said we would win the league at a canter with over 100 points.....

I tend to quite enjoy the close season as it's nice to have a period where football doesn't matter (to a point!!!). It's been such an amazing season, I don't feel like I've let it go yet!

The Euro's are not interesting me 1 bit, so that shouldn't get in the way of a football-free summer staring at the rain on my window at home...
