Post-Match Thread: Burton Albion V Charlton Athletic FC Saturday 12th November 2022

edited November 2022 in General Charlton
Another away draw and multi-goal thriller for the Addicks. But, like a Charlton defender, I really don’t have the capacity to tackle a full summary. So, here’s the match in a nutshell:

We went out and gained a two goal lead, thanks to a confident Charlie Kirk getting in behind Burton’s defensive line on the counter and finishing with impressive technique and skill. Towards the end of the second half, we conceded two goals in disappointing fashion. 

In the second half, they peppered us! Craig G., filling in after a late finger injury to Jojo, kept us in it with multiple decent saves. They went ahead with a third goal and we seemed out of it. A few substitutions saw renewed effort. Chuks came on and immediately played a blinder, putting Rak-Saki through on goal. He looped the ball over the keeper to equalise.

We’re not good enough to dominate teams. The owner wished for exciting, end-to-end thrillers and he’s certainly got that. The problem is, we’re a few pieces of quality short to ensure we come out on top of these thrillers more often than not.

    2 up against the bottom club, oh well, but looking at the stats we seem to have got away with a point. Onwards and upwards. Safe journey home.

    Criminal to have gone it at HT 2-2! 
    Defence needs completely reevaluating in January - no way should lavelle be here, nor should innis be first choice! 

    Chin and Campbell way out of their depth, CBT had to start next game! 

    Stockley simply not up to it, and we don’t ever look like scoring with him on the pitch - Leaburn/transfer , it’s your position to lose!!!! 

    Sess was solid, Dobson not able to get into it, kirk did well for his goals- but at 2-2 you need players to take the game by the scruff of the neck he’s not that! 
    JFC did nothing when coming on, hard to argue against him being dropped- CBT/Aneke obviously our only threat- look forward to Clare back in the team soon! 

    Could have been 2 points off playoffs

    This is a patched up defence and it shows but we need to sort out 3 things as a bloody priority. 1) Set pieces we need to ensure we don't have so many mismatches. Play a strict man to man if need be. 2) 2nd Ball, we lose too much of it and 3) Some clearances need to be hit and hope but when we can find our players we hardly ever have the composure to do so.

    We score 3 goals against the run of play. Generally poor. Fraser and Dobson particularly bad. Our defence so shaky. We are lucky to come away with a point.

    Goal scoring not our problem.

    To the point where I’d be ok with trading a striker signing for another defensive option.

    Centre back and full back top of the priority list at this moment in time.

    So in response to Golfie, we start Chuks and CBT, they get us 2-0 up and tire... Then what?

    We have far less impactful players to replace them.
    Firstly also there’s no guarantee they will get us 2-0 up because games are always far less open for the first 60-70 minutes. We have seen CBT start and be nullified.

    Secondly, there’s the likelihood that the extra minutes and running, especially against players who are not tiring could lead to them breaking down. We have seen Aneke unable to even complete a pre season starting matches. 

    At the moment it is what it is, and I’d be looking more at the other end of the pitch as to where our problems lie.

    Garner blaming the intensive schedule. Maybe a drawback of putting out relatively strong sides in all 3 cup games.

    only four shots on target - and we scored three ... but Burton had 10 on target

    Wycombe and Oxford both top half now and climbing the table

    Frustrating to watch…I like Fraser but boy does he need a lot of time on the ball…Rak Saki needs to get his head up and pass had CBT wide open near the end…Innis and Lavelle a nightmare…Kirk scored 2 but bottles challenges half the time… MacG had a decent game but inspires no confidence in me….

    I can see you two being reported for talking sense.

    We seem to look very good going forwards in the last 30 minutes of games...

    Let’s be honest if Chuks could play 90 mins, he wouldn’t be playing for Charlton.
    Aneke was fit when originally signed, wasn't he? If we had kept him fit we might not be in League 1 again. 

    Also we played Bonne ahead of him at times when he was fit... There's a player that I'd prefer not to see again... But...

    Too poor defensively to make top six.

    There was one delightful through-ball Kirk played that 95% of strikers in this league would have latched onto. Stockley was about 3 yards behind it the whole way
    I think as Garner gets toward a squad that he's comfortable with then the jury will return and Stockley will move on, it's a shame and I like him as a player, but we are clearly a greater threat with more mobility up front. For the moment he's captain and first choice, next season who knows perhaps there is a centre back in there, worked for Arthur Horsfield !

    A draw before the game would have been a crap result. A draw after being 2-0 up is criminal. 
    Not having been 3-2 down it isn't.

    How about a draw after being 3-2 down?
