Bees sting but its just for fun

A one nil defeat to Barnet is disappointing, but lets remember 12 months ago we lost to Barnet in a pre season and went on to come close to automatic promotion and on the way beat Barnet 4-1 in a competitive match.

Parkinson is working magic bringing in the players that he has, but the team is still work in progress and may continue to be until 31st August and maybe even beyond with loans.  The serious concern is up front, although the signs are that Bauza has a contract on the table and is now following in the footsteps of Pringle and Bartlett along with a number of addicks who doned the shirt prior to a permanent full time contract,only for their performances to decline.

My recollection of previous seasons is that some of our best seasons have been preceded by poor pre seasons, now so far I do not think we have had a poor pre season but it does not feel like it has been an outstanding one.

I have no qualms about losing to Bromley and Watford, but after that we need a full team and then... then we kick balls in anger!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can see how Bauza's performances could decline after yesterday. He must be one of the worst players I've ever seen put on a Charlton shirt, including at the park on a weekend. Signing no-one and having Sodje on his own would be better than signing Bauza. Thorvaldsson on the other hand showed some good awareness for the 15 or so minutes he played.

By all accounts he has been the star of all the previous friendlies.
