Saturday's goalless draw with Blackpool was the Addicks' first league shut-out of the season, and a first at The Valley since November 2012.

"It's a relief to be honest with you," admitted Hamer.

Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...
