Tranmere ... blow by blow

14.45: switched on CAFC Player, looking forward to a good, and perhaps historic, game. Five wins in a row at the start of the season ... whichever way you look at it, it seems to be an unlikely proposition for Charlton. And yet ... it actually is possible!

14.55: 40+ members logged-in to Charlton Life with 30 or so guests.

15.42: Bailey cross, just behind Racon, pity, could have been another.
