In the papers, the independent leads with "Lampard dampens Charlton's spirit" but then goes on to tell us the complete opposite and then quoting Pards "The commitment and effort were fantastic, and if we can play with that spirit we'll have a good chance of staying in this division". And the best quote of all appears to be from Jose himself that "Mourinho was right that it was not the best time to play Charlton".
Its all a bit boring in the observer and to emphasize their indifference, with all the exotica on-hand they even give MOM to someone called Wayne.
It's far more stirring stuff from the telegraph, the Champions "were uncharacteristically wobbling when strugglers Charlton, suddenly fired by self-belief, pressed forward" although at the same time claiming we "lacked the conviction" but then rightly gave MOM to Scotty Carson.
Meanwhile, Conrad Leach over at Villa Park in the independent calls the Hammers performance wonderfully "insipid" and apparently was "as comprehensive a 1-0 thrashing as they have suffered all season long" and reminds us that their next two games are against Watford and Charlton. That second game should be a humdinger...
