Oops. This is a mere sample of the piece that will be published in full tomorrow (Sunday). Some hardly untypical incompetence on the part of Monsieur Salut led the posting to be published prematurely.
But here’s what Pete Sixsmith had to say, focusing on his description of the Stadium of Light atmosphere after Gooch’s winner:
The crowd reaction was rapturous. It was akin to the second coming of the Lord or the roar that used to bounce around the Stadium in the halcyon days of Quinn and Phillips. The place simply erupted in joy and pleasure and in the realisation that we may just have got a particularly uncomfortable monkey off our backs.
The full article is a treat and will be on our pages by early tomorrow (update: it’s already there at https://safc.blog/2018/08/sixers-charlton-soapbox-breaking-the-mould-of-the-1st-day-hoodoo/).
