I was 'Billy no mates' for the first half today as we played our home fixture against the 'Grecians' of Exeter.

An 'awayday' at Norwich is always only partially about the football.

I'm off to Norwich in the morning for game 8 of our League One / Tier 3 experience.
I've had an especially tough week and I'm far too tired to write a proper preview for our match at Carrow Road.
So, here's a build your own preview. All you have to do is join the dots between these well worn phrases and it'll let me off the hook.
pies -(yum, yum),
Good Luck! I expect your work on my desk, first thing in the morning.

As I returned to my home, I flicked on some music and The Magnificent Seven by The Clash was the track my shuffle selection came up with.

Southampton arrive at The Valley on Saturday for a fixture many have been looking forward to.

Charlton won for the sixth consecutive league game, without having to work too hard in this lunchtime fixture.

We are possibly on the cusp of history being made.
A win against Brentford on Saturday lunchtime, (live on Sky Sports), would make an unbeaten run of six league games,- better than last weeks best ever start to a Charlton season! Only a minor blip against Hereford in the 'Who Cares cup' has spoiled the perfect start to the season.
Brentford are famous for Greg Dyke, unbelievably Cameron Diaz and the lead singer of Hard Fi as celebrity fans.
Assuming that Cameron is a little busy to rock up at the Valley, it's ex Addick Charlie Macdonald I was looking forward to seeing. Unfortunately, it would seem he is in the middle of a fairly long term injury lay off so he won't be coming back to poke us in the eye.
Another of our ex-files, Myles Weston will be hoping to show us what we missed out on but it's Carl Cort who we should be most wary of. It wasn't so long ago that he was part of the 'humorous' Newcastle line up that became a punchline.
Newcastle are for it. Why? Bobby Robson Cort Bowyer Given Shearer Speed!
Not quite as good as Young Fish Costa Fortune but still not bad.
Brentford are struggling with injuries in defence which means I'm very optimistic of taking all 3 points. Our fantastic run of results has to end sometime but I don't see it being this weekend.
In summary, I see our team being far too strong in midfield for Brentford to compete. Our defence is becoming a well oiled unit and our attacking players against a make shift defence is just too juicy a prospect to miss.
I'm not expecting a walk over like we experienced against Tranmere but I can see a win, hopefully by more than one clear goal.
