Blackpool 5 Charlton 3

Anyone wanting to enjoy this particular Sunday Morning will be dragging the dog for a long walk, reading a good book on anything but sport or simply turning over in bed. Whatever takes your fancy and anything to avoid the problem of picking up today's papers.
And you can't blame them really, except that most papers now don't even bother to write about us anyway as we're already been written-off as far as promotion interest is concerned.
So for those diehards still with us, you can jump straight into the sportinglife report for an explanation of a 3-5 scoreline, that looks bad whichever way round you look at it, where the text is full of those charming little objectives that we all thought had disappeared with last seasons relegation.
Yes, once again we're 'Embarrassing', 'abject', with 'defensive frailties' and if you still don't get it then there's the killer sentence putting the nails in the coffin, 'the Addicks looked anything but a side heading for an immediate return to the Barclays Premier League after an abject surrender left them utterly humiliated by Simon Grayson's men.'
And if you were expecting a response from Pardew then there it is in black and white, 'furious boss Alan Pardew launched a scathing attack on his players, "They were really bad goals on our part and the back four just did not function today. The two centre-halves and the right full-back - again - was poor. I've said that to them so I've got no problem saying it now".
The only other paper to show any interest was over at the observercumguardian where they're a little bit kinder and put the blame fair and square on the inspirational (!) form of the on-loan Paul Dickov.
More probing analysis will doubtless follow in the next few days from everyone but right now I'm going back to bed!
