They will possibly a little weaker in areas. Bauer gone, Aribo almost certain to go. I think it can go either way with newly promoted teams and lets remember they only did it through the playoffs. Chartlon are the least of my worries in August tbh but yeah, a bad result in that game could really have a knock-on effect - just as the reveerse could spur us on for the next few games.

I know I come across a bit of a happy clapper on here, but I think we can beat Charlton at home lads.

First up isn't a good time to play a newly promoted team. They'll have a full squad and confidence will still be high from the previous season. You're better off playing them when they've lost a few through injuries and suspensions plus when they've taken a few bangings !

Now that Bowyer has signed on again he has to rebuild his depleted squad, he needs CBs more than we do! and an owner still desperate to bail out. Having said that I think Bowyer has done a cracking job there and a great motivator.

If you were to offer the best time for Charlton to have a chance of winning at Ewood- it would undoubtedly be first game of the season following the Robbins' promotion.

That is indisputable.

Doesn't invalidate the fact we should beat them by a good margin but it is the worst possible time to play them...

I'm not expecting us to win at Fulham so its imperative we beat Charton at Ewood.

Be nice to see Chapman play again (on the wing that is).

Barring the biggest injury crises Ewood has ever seen, there is no chance Chapman starts on the opening day of the season.

Why did TM buy him then? I don't get it. :(

That and we rarely win our first game of the season.

20 minute impact sub when we need a goal.

That can be likened to some posters logic of Conways extension last year. They said he could come on to shore us up going into the last knockings to defend a lead. We all know how that ended.

We haven't, won our opening game of the season since Venkys rocked up, and that is no coincidence.

Bennett will be here and he's very rarely injured, so he'll be starting. Especially with Nyambe being at the AFCON and therefore returning to training late - RB will probably be Bennett's for the first few games....

Take out Nyambe & O'Neill for Bennett & Evans and that might not be far off.

Bottom 6 side for me that, no goals in the side and Hanley isn't suddenly going to transform the worst away defence in the entire FL.

Long old season ahead.
