I was amongst the many who were concerned about this campaign. The keeping of Phil Parkinson at the helm and a policy of not spending our little money to chase the dream straight back to the Championship were questionable as well.
However, as Charlton fans, we generally get on with it and make the best of what we have.
The early season success should not be blown out of proportion but it is unfair not to give recognition of a job being well done. Indeed, we are currently experiencing a good run of form and this is very promising.
The signings on transfer deadline day will bolster our numbers and hopefully give us depth to sustain our challenge in the division. It was my main gripe with Alan Pardew last season that we seemed to disregard the lack on centre half's at the club. Whilst we are still not overloaded this year, at least it has been addressed.
We have also opted for some experience in key areas. Centre backs and strikers are key to achieving the aim of promotion and scrapping our ludicrous loan player debacle from last term was also essential.
A good start, positive times ahead.
Come on you reds!!!
