Marc Pugh lost the ball in the Charlton half and after a half-hearted challenge Charlton broke quickly into the Bournemouth box and a neat cross that evaded all defenders was slotted into the bottom corner. Charlton 1-0 AFC Bournemouth
50 mins | SCOTT WAGSTAFF | Charlton
What can you say about this goal, he won’t score many more like it. From a corner the Cherries defence nodded the ball out to the edge of the area where the ball was sidefooted to Wagstaff who produced a stunning volley that was never going to be saved. Charlton 2-0 AFC Bournemouth
77 mins | JOHNNIE JACKSON | Charlton
Wright-Phillips stumbled into the area and Adam Barrett stuck out a leg. BWP said thanks and obligingly went over to get a harsh penalty. Johnnie Jackson stepped up and confidently stroked home the ball to complete the win. Charlton 3-0 AFC Bournemouth

THE OFFICIAL VIEW
LEE BRADBURY gives his reaction:
“We weren’t fully at it today. At the end of the day, we’ve got to perform. “It’s a big blow, the lads were feeling confident and are now down. We’ll learn from it, but we can’t really ponder on it too much.

CHARLTON BOSS Chris Powell said:
“It’s been a long summer of change and we’ve worked really hard. “I’m pleased and proud of my players because when you come to a new club, normally there are just three or four changes but I’ve brought in 14 players. “But they’ve gelled really quickly off the field too, which was something I felt needed to happen.”
THE TFTSE VIEW
Not the best of starts to a season, but it was always going to be a tough game against one of the championship hopefuls. The 4-5-1 formation came as no surprise for an away game, but leaving Ings up front on his own is a tough call for the striker and against good defences it ain’t gonna work. The team simply never created enough chances to trouble any defence, an issue that needs to be resolved quick. A shame neither Symes and Lovell were fit, we need them to help Danny Ings.
We predict that this team will gel soon enough and start to put together some good results, much like Huddersfield did last season.
As for all the doom and gloom merchants and Eddie Mitchell haters shut the f**k up, its only been one game. Instead of speculating about what Mitchell is doing with the money from sales, why not try and find out the facts and let us all know. We would be keen to know the truth.
