Ahead of table toppers Charlton’s visit to Bescot on Saturday, Walsall Web-fans take in the views from the opposition of reamsofverse an Addicks fan from intothevalley.proboards.com
Sadlad – 1. Charlton visit Walsall full of confidence with just one defeat all season. How does it feel to be enjoying a seven point lead at the top of the table by the first week in December?
Reamsofverse – Can’t beat it, everytime I look over our shoulder whoever is behind us is getting further and further away!!
2.Where do you think Charlton will finish this season?
Champions by Easter
3.Your away form has been fantastic with just the one defeat and one draw and eight wins from the first 10 aways. Has your away style of play been similar to the home games?
No we soak up the pressure more away then hit our opponents on the break. Once we have put the game to bed we come out and give them a footballing masterclass, we have scored fours and fives this season already, a six will come before too long.
4. What do you know about the Walsall team? Where do you think The Saddlers will finish this season?
Walsall seem to be a bit like ourselves where they can express themselves more away from home. Because of your position maybe the Bescot is a nervous place for you to play. In our case if you can’t play football at he Valley then you can’t play it anywhere and because of that the hurdle we have at home is that opponents raise their game because they are on the big stage.
5. Moving on to the game, who should we look out for? Has anyone player stuck out or has it been a good team effort?
We have goals in us all over the park, BWP is scoring for fun, Kermorgant is immense too but we are not a team of individuals we play as a team and when we do there is no way passed us.
6. Have you any predictions for the game? What sort of game do you envisage?
Walsall will come at us early on but it will be a matter of time for us. Once that first goal goes in the three points will be on their way to London long before the final whistle.
7. Chris Powell only stepped in to the hot seat last January. Have you been surprised at the progress he’s made?
Yes I have to be honest. He still has one or two things to learn but I think that his job is made easier by the quality of the squad that he has assembled.
8. What sort of relationship do you have with your chairman and joint owner Michael Slater? Is he fans friendly and media friendly?
Spoke to him at the Carlisle game and he seemed genuinely suprised and pleased that there I was a Charlton fan talking to him having travelled all the way from Wrexham. Seems a down to earth guy and has not put a foot wrong so far.
9. Whom would you class as your rivals?
Don’t really care, If I did that would make them important and they aren’t.
10. And finally for those of you who have been to Bescot before, what was your matchday experience like?
The Bescot for me is one of those stadiums where you need an atmosphere from the away fans to get the home fans going and with the Champions in town on Saturday you can be sure of that. Your low crowds don’t help but hopefully with Charlton on the menu the locals will come out in force and we will sing that very song to remind them!!…………….Your’e only ere cos it’s Charlton!!
Many thanks to
