Cool for CATS!

Cardiff City 0 Charlton Athletic 2

While I was enjoying myself watching Squeeze in Hammersmith last night, Charlton were helping themselves to a fourth consecutive away win in the Championship, easily beating Cardiff at Ninian Park.

I was kept up to date with the score by my wife and a friend and I was tempted to shout out and let Mr Tillbrook know how his local team were doing, but I’m sure he had his own text alerts coming through loud and clear as he sang away on stage.

“0-1 Holland 34 mins” was the first piece of good news I had – Matty volleying in after a corner was cleared to him on the edge of the box. Later “0-2 Reid (Pen) 79” - after Ambrose was upended in the box and Cap’n Reidy stroked home the spot kick - suggested that all three points were homeward bound to SE7 and the Charlton Athletic Travelling Supporters (CATS) would be happy.

A fine win it seems and the switch back to 4-5-1 seems to have worked well with Ambrose and Sam out wide supporting Iwelumo.

The win gives Charlton 34 points, meaning that we only need another 16 points (from 26 games) to be theoretically safe from relegation.

Now if Pards can get the formation and personnel right on Saturday, the Valley fans will be as happy as most of those who sang along with Squeeze at the Apollo last night.

How many points do you think it will take to get one of the top two slots? Or promotion-eligible?

I'm still a newbie to this and am trying to learn.
After our recent home form, I'm being ultra-pessimistic and looking for the 50 points relegation safety mark first. Playing the promotion lark I think that, looking at how results are panning and the way teams beat each other in this league, 80 points has got to be in the top three. 90 points and you are up this year. Even 72-75 should keep you in the top six and a definite play off slot... Unless, that is, Watford, West Brom and ourselves start winning nearly every week (which could happen) and we end up like 97/98 when four teams finished with almost 90 points.
