Charlton 1 - 2 Sheffield Wednesday

Yesterday I went to The Valley for the first time, to see Charlton play Sheffield Wednesday.

Charlton pleased the home crowd - especially the noisy lady behind me - by taking an early lead. Charlton squandered a great chance to go two up mid way through the first half. Just before the end of the half Wednesday scored twice. A Sheffield Wednesday fan sitting next to us was loudly booed by the home fans as he cheered the away teams goals.

In an open second half, with lots of attacking by Charlton, sadly they didn't get an equaliser.

I was impressed by the stewards who without any fuss and bother, seemed to be going into the stand containing the Sheffield Wednesday fans and removing trouble makers.

  1. Stewarding has come a long way since the 80s, they manage pretty well.
