Charlton Pathetic FC

With the upcoming fixture against 'The SE7 Clowns' I could not help but notice the enormous amount of discussion and debate that this particular game has created!
Some of the banter posted especially on the messageboard has been both highly entertaining and amusing.
This is by no means an attempt to deviate away from the importance of the fixture itself, in terms of the potential end of season prize that is at stake......for both clubs.
In fact it just emphasises the passion, feeling and anticipation that this game radiates.

One of the topics of discussion on the messageboard in the last week or so has included an attempt by Palace fans to create a new song to sing on matchdays.
The result was:

To the tune of head, shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes.

Hill, Hudson, Hills & Halls, Hills & Halls,
Hill, Hudson, Hills & Halls, Hills & Halls,
I...fill, Watson, Clint & Soares,
Hill, Hudson, Hills & Halls, Hills & Halls.

Finally to end this short post I have selected my Top Ten song titles that I feel best encapsulates the club and fans of Charlton Pathetic.
