Charlton manager "embarrassed" by derby defeat to Millwall

CHRIS Powell admitted he was "embarrassed" by Charlton's home form after Millwall became the ninth team to leave The Valley with maximum points this season.

Jermaine Easter and Shane Lowry scored within the space of six second-half minutes to secure the Lions the spoils in the South London derby on Saturday and Powell was left "baffled" by the result.

"The chances tally was well in our favour but of course what counts is you have got to take them," he said. "I'm led to believe today it was ten chances to two in our favour.



"But what is vital is Millwall took the two that came their way. I am mystified by it, to be honest. I'm baffled. I am embarrassed for my players and for my supporters.

"We've tried everything with regards to performing at home. We had a good first half, we stood toe to toe and had a penalty claim that wasn't given and within a minute we were a goal down.

"Of course goals change games and we ended up chasing it and the second goal was a wonderful free-kick from Lowry, the new style free-kick that players are using these days.

“We created the better chances but you have to take the ones that come your way. It didn't happen through good defending, good goalkeeping or us not hitting the target."

    I'd be embarrassed if I had anything to do with that excuse for a club.

    Chrissy, Chrissy, Chrissy. You were fed duff information 10 to 2, was actually 10 to 12. I've got nothing against Chris Powell, but perhaps he should get together with Michael Appleton and share a box of tissues.

    I thought the stats were in our favour. Didn't we have more shots and more on target than the anoraks? Well, according the the BBC report we did. To be honest, I'd be embarrassed to have any association with Chartlon let alone being their manager. I was however, quite embarrassed being in the car with the Harold and Hilda Charlton fans I had a lift with. What with the bobble hats, walley scarfs, rucksacks (would you believe) and even their little padded seats cushions they took. They also took out of the boot a couple of cagoules to keep dry in the rain for f**** sake. Charlton - hate them!

    What game were you watching Mr.Powell?
    Wall had 5 shots on target to your 3 and both teams had 7 efforts off target.
    Fordey only had one proper save to make and once we went 2-0 up your boys faded as an attacking force completely. The best team won due to excellent defending, a willingness to win and a better shape to the team.
    Face it Chrissy Boy, your lot was outplayed by a better side.
    Wem-ber-ly, Wem-ber-ly
    PS If you wanna know what its like to play at Wembley as a Manager you should leave the Trainspotters a bit sharpish.

    Can't believe he has the front, maybe he's gutted cause millwall and palARSE done him in the same game. I would like to say Richard chaplow had a very good game today, would I have dropped keoghe ? Not sure, it worked but trotts was his new self, not very good. Osbourne getting injured was a shame but we looked solid when Lowry moved inside and Adam smith came in at left back.
    What's this "new style free kick that players are trying these days" ? That's a new one on me, 30/35 yards out letting everyone in the ground know that he's gonna shoot. Ain't it good to be wall. No one likes and I couldn't care less.
    It's what we do
    It's what we do
    P*** off our neighbours
    It's what we do.

    Chris Powell, you are a decent fella, don't go spoiling it now with sour grapes. Losing at home is a sour pill and a local derby too. Don't mug us off with this old b*******..we outplayed ya, and we deserved our victory. Very nearly all our players put in a good solid shift. While we're on the subject, I thought Chaplow did pretty good for a first game, Easter too. The rest looked good, especially Dunney, but, and I hate to s*** one geezer down, but again, Trotter to me looks totally out of it, he looks really laboured, really struggling, and as for that daft bleedin' beard! Bloody good result and performance, but seriously fella's, is Trotter ill or something? I'm not kidding, to me he looks like a 14 stone bloke who's carrying 24! COYL!
