Johnnie Jackson had fired the Addicks ahead at The Valley, only for Reda Johnson (84) and Leroy Lita (89) to earn the Owls a surprise three points in south London.

The result was a shock to play-off contenders Charlton and Powell admitted: "That's football, sometimes you love the game and sometimes you hate it.

"It's one of those days that hasn't gone for us. The turning point was when we hit a post (a Scott Wagstaff effort), that would have sealed the deal for us.

"It's a tough way to lose after playing our part in a tough game. We got stronger and better as the game went on and went ahead through a good goal, but then couldn't see the game out

"It's a bitter pill to swallow but the players have done terrifically well this past month."

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
