Even before the first whistle you knew that Town weernt going to do well. Wolves to a man were taller quicker stronger than any of our players so it was inevitable that they would win.
OK we had chances and maybe on a good day Martin could have had two or three goals. But the difference was that if they had had the same chances they would have taken them.
Chambers stood up well and despite some comments i heard i thought that N'Daw at least competed but he was the same height as most our their players!
Chopra was pants
Smith isnt up to it at this level
Cresswell and Edwards did ok but got musculed out too often, we shoudl have got Halford.
Luongo did his best against giants but needs better players around him and Taylor is much the same
Murphy must play in central roll otherwise his knock-ons are wasted on the wing but again he was too slow.
Scotland showed determination and showed that he can mix it against big defenders. Why he isnt on the teamsheet beats me!!
Drury was lucky he didnt get red carded. He's not good enough at this level, maybe ok when we play weaker sides.
Loach did alright and couldnt do much with goals but he is playing with very poor defence that cant provide much protection!

Well that made Wednesday look good. Poor tactically today and no real fight or confidence. Thought only Scotland and Chambers looked up for it. Cresswell looks a different player, and not in a good way. Luongo shows ashes of what he can do but again gave the ball away for the second goal, Murphy was poor, Martin disappointing and JET dreadful. PJ in trouble I think.

Murphy and JET should offer to forfeit their wages on that performance. Poor Luke Hyam must wonder what he has done wrong.

I know we have a few injuries up front but I thought Scotland was good as was Ellington who at least provided a threat. Defence is still a mess and unless ME doesn't act soon we will be cut adrift from the pack. Jewell is running out of ideas and excuses!

Three changes of formation in the first half sneaks of a manager under pressure. On Wednesday we should have beaten Wolves but can't say that today despite Charlton being very ordinary. Lack of confidence is manifesting itself in appearing to lack effort. I will exempt Scotland, Chambers, Luongo and Ellington from criticism as they, at least, tried to make things happen, even if it didn't pay off for them. JET was abysmal again, Murphy and Martin ineffective, Cresswell out of sorts, Smith not good enough at this level and too easily beaten for second goal, as was Loach. Even Edwards and Drury, reliable 7 out of 10's, we're under par. It's annoying as we have the players but our set up and tactics are questionable and I think Paul Jewell is treading on thin ice now as we are currently not too good to go down

Jewel will get it right.
(we may be in the blue square but have faith. COYB)

........ don't panic, early days, etc; etc; - and reassuringly clueless JEWELL is on the case !!! - should boast the confidence greatly hey.

I agree with 50yearsablue

J.E.T I hope you read this, how dare you criticise the Town Fans, we have every right to express our opinions, as I will against you, again another poor performance, the bloke is over rated.

Jason Scotland was my M.O.M by a long way.

..... to the pro Jewell people - enjoy your humble pie !

This man never was, and never will be what this Club needs - and I'm not just saying it now - check my first, and every post since his appointment for proof of this statement.

Just thought I'd mention that before anyone starts bleating.
