Charlton have a category system , and inevitably our visit has been chosen as one of the Gold fixtures (we’re not famous any more!) with prices to match. So it will cost us £27 for adults, [url= https://h]h[/url]

United proceeded to negotiate the game’s remainder, which they did with little trouble. There was a scare at the end of four minutes added on when a corner fell only as far as Said Benrahma, but the Frenchman blasted it over and Bielsa and his charges held on for a victory they probably just about merited.

It all kicked off in the second half of that game, after Josh Magennis had barged into Gjanni Alioski, leaving him injured near the touchline. Joe Williams then took it on himself to try drag Alioski to his feet, and Cooper rightly intervened to protect his colleague, bearing in mind that an injury can be exacerbated if the casualty is moved too soon by someone not medically qualified.

But Leeds stole a march on the Robins late in the day and director of football Victor Orta is understood to have issued a personal plea to Arsenal which proved critical in completing the deal. He went on to make five Premier League appearances last season, and scored his first league goal for the Gunners in a 3-1 victory away to Burnley in the final match of the campaign.

And the view from the home seats at the opposite end to the Leeds fans....As you say, a lot of possession in the first 40 minutes but not much end product. We were passing it round the area looking for the perfect through ball, probably because a high cross wasn't an option without a tall striker.
Phillips' first shot was well over, but he adjusted his radar, and his third shot produced a good save. We improved once Clarke and Costa had swapped wings, and finally got the breakthrough with the first really incisive move we'd managed to produce. It had been hard work against a side who had been quick to get back in numbers to deny us space.
In the second half we had some dodgy moments from Casilla, but produced two more excellent goals, albeit the third from breaking down the pitch after Salford had had a chance of their own.
A couple of things you won't have seen on the TV. An excellent set of Indie tunes before the game and at half-time. Have they borrowed Rochdale's DJ? I was expecting a bunch of excitable Man U wannabes on the home terrace, but not the vastly incompetent performance from their stewards when one of their number got on the pitch and was able to run round and get back onto the terrace unmolested.
They had the inevitable inflatable sheep, and as the second half wore on they were chanting 'Sheepshagger' at Kiko Casilla (sorry chaps, but he's from Spain) as well as throwing a few flagpoles in his general direction. And of course the home fans were leaving in huge numbers well before the end.
But all in all, it was a good night.
