It’s another nostalgia post.What era would you have preferred to live in?
I only wish I’d been born in 1950 rather than 1960.I could’ve been listening to all that great sixties music with a bit more awareness as a budding teenager than I did as a toddler.I would’ve been almost 17 during the summer of love rather than 6 and still playing with my action men.
I’m sure I would’ve enjoyed Woodstock or the Isle of Wight festivals more than I did with some of the concerts I went to in the later 70’s.Did they really believe that they could change the world by wearing some flowers in your hair and taking drugs?
I would’ve also seen us win the football World Cup rather than only remembering the rugby and cricket versions.I might also have seen us at the start of our rise up the football league ladder,including the league cup win in 67.
Although I was the first Rangers fan in our family,and still living in Battersea until March 67,so I might’ve been a kings road knuckledragger instead if I’d followed along with my schoolmates at the time.
It’s all academic really,but the 60’s seemed a better decade than the 70’s,but then I would’ve probably been too old for punk.

My tv has developed an annoying whining noise in the last 30 minutes.I think they call it mcmanaman or something similar.The only cure seems to be to adjust the volume button until the whining goes away.
How does this fecker get on tv at all,let alone as the champions league final co commentator.
|OAP season tickets|
at 12:49 21 Aug 2020
As I turn 60 next month,I went into the box office in September last year and asked the staff what will happen next,(this) September.Dont worry they said,we’ll allow a pro rata price to happen.
I asked the same question via email a couple of months ago and got a reply today saying that I needed to have been 60 by August 1st to get an OAP ticket for the coming season,which I will be 4 days after the 1st game of the season.
They will therefore charge me full price in our package for the coming season.I’m not sure whether we’ll be allowed into many games next season,so to pay £200 more for the privilege doesn’t sound much of a bargain to me.
And isn’t there a sliding scale to raise the age bracket to 65 starting next season?So I could be forced to pay full price until I reach 65 as my birthday will be 6 weeks after the cut off time every year?
I blame my parents mainly,followed by covid 19 and then the club.
I know times are hard for our club,but I’m surely tempted to give up my season ticket after 44 long years and buy them cheap as and when I can go.

I just caught the last 30 minutes of a radio documentary about lower league football on 5live.The last interview was with Akinfenwa,and he came across as a decent bloke,not just tonight,but in most interviews he has given.
I know he could quite easily bully our back 4 next season,but it’s hard to dislike him,and I hope he doesn’t get too much abuse if fans are allowed back next season.
He has played mostly lower league football all his career so I think he’s earned his time playing in a higher league.
I just hope he has a quiet game or two against us.

Anyone watching the cricket today?Who will win is anybody’s guess.
Why do we always seem to start a test series so poorly?
|Season ticket refunds|
at 20:31 5 Aug 2020
I had an email from the box office today saying that the refund on our season tickets was £46,but I don’t know what that represents.
With all the talk of redundancy last month I thought I’d cash my adult silver st in and one of our 2 U18’s and watch the games via my daughters U18 season ticket.
We have a family package consisting of 2 adults,2 U18’s and an over 60 ticket that comes to £1189,so what does the £46 equate to?
Anyone else got theirs?
at 12:53 23 Jul 2020
Has anyone had a refund for their Charlton tickets yet?My brother bought ours and he said last night that he hadn’t received any refund yet,despite hearing that they were being repaid on July 2nd.

I’ve just started watching the Wycombe game and both linesmen are on the same side of the pitch.Is that because of the low sun?Is it even allowed?Ignore that as it’s a sub warming up in a yellow fluorescent bib.

Does anyone on here know anything much about employment law?
Without going into too much detail and boring you all,I got an email from my employer saying that there was a good chance that I’d be made redundant as the work had dropped off drastically to what it was pre covid.
I was given a choice of roles in depots to move to,but they seem to have been filled now,even though the consultation period doesn’t end until the 30th June.
I received another email today that said that the only job role open to me is one where I’d have to be away all week and sleep in my truck at night.Or I can resign if I didn’t want to do that.
Considering I’m at home every day based on my old role,is this a reasonable offer of an alternative,or do I suspect they haven’t got a legal case and hope that I go quietly?
I’m 60 in September and spending nights away sleeping somewhere in frozen Scotland 4 nights a week doesn’t sound like my idea of fun.
They also want my answer by tomorrow at noon,which is still in the supposed consultation period.
Any advice would be much appreciated.

Does anyone have any news on when the box office will be open again?I have an issue about next year’s season ticket that needs to be addressed.
I can try and phone the 0208 number but I didn’t fancy listening to a 5 minute recorded message.Thanks.

Just to let you all know that BT sport 3 (417) is showing highlights of our FA cup final from 1982 on Saturday morning at 9am.
I guess it might be both games,but I’m not sure yet.
|St. George’s day|

Happy St. George’s day to everyone.The one year most of us get the day off and we can’t go down the pub to celebrate.Hope you all have a good day and stay safe.

There were a few of us that used to stand together in metal bit of the old loft where ML is now but most of the people I stood with don’t come any more.There was 1 bloke from Kingsbury called John.I cant remember his surname though.He looked like bono because he had the same long black hair.He was about 5’6” at a Guess.He also had a brother that looked nothing like him.
Any know of him or his whereabouts?He was there until about 88/89.
|Some good news|

There is always some good news to brighten the day.No more eastenders and Eurovision is cancelled too.
Stay safe everyone as there is something to look forward to.

Nice to see the villa getting a good walloping again.Isnt the racist bellend supposed to be working with the defence?
at 08:17 4 Mar 2020
I’m just watching breakfast tv and they’re reporting about Super Tuesday in the US,where 2 democrats aged 77 and 78, are competing to stand for election against a 73 year old,who will be 77 or 78 by the time he finishes a possible 2nd term.
Are there any younger people involved in politics over there?Or does the wealth needed to be able to go to the very top in American politics mostly come with age?

We had a power cut about 2 hours ago and I guess it’s because a tree has brought the lines down,and I don’t think they’ll be attempting to fix it until the winds have died down a bit.
But it shows how dependent we all are on getting the electricity to do things we normally take for granted.
I’m not overly bothered at having no tv,but as we have only an oil fired boiler for heating,which needs electricity to run it,we have no heating.I can’t boil a kettle or cook anything either.
At least the mobile has a bit of power in it.
Stay safe everyone,and I’ll get back to reading my copy of war and peace before it gets dark.
