Guy Luzon speaks (ok its a parody account + and his wicki page)

Amongst the gloom and doom at The Valley, I came across on twitter a parody account of Guy Luzojn.  Whilst some have found the humour annoying it made me giggle so I thought I would give a bit of coverage to his account @GuyLuzoncafc .

Parody it maybe but it hits the nail on the head when it comes to his understanding of all things Charlton and Football.

As he says "Come on You Adders!"

Footnote:- There is now a Guy Luzon Wickipedia entry, won't be around for long but just incase yuo miss it here is a screen shot:-

Charlton Trailblaze with live TV

I was on my weekly bicycle and stop off at Greenwich, Novotel for a coffee and a read of their Independent and came across the report on Charlton beating Blackburn 1-0 in the FA Cup.

No I have not got it wrong, in 1947 the first ever live club TV match was televised and it was between Charlton and Blackburn as a trial run prior to the FA Cup final being televised, which Charlton went on to win 1-0.

Sam Bartram said it was a poor game and was lucky that a slip towards the end did not result in a Blackburn equaliser.

That cup final was the second cup final to feature Charlton and was the 2nd cup final in a row where the ball burst.

So those were happy days - on TV and we won (Now this is against the law), we won the FA Cup (Eee Aye adee o) and the ball burst.

It was a different era from the money fueled, network inducing world that football is played in today.

Charlton Athletic trailblazers

  • Live TV coverage
  • Ground sharing
  • A supporters political party
  • And a Belgian led network ownership

Never dull at the Valley.

Now back to cleaning my pitchfork.
