If Charlton Athletic get into the habit of refunding disappointed fans over crushing defeats on the roads, their bank account would quickly drop further into the red.
The faithful Valley supporters were unhappy about the 5-0 drubbing at Huddersfield , little thinking that worst would follow.
New manager Jose Riga saw his battered and bruised side go down 6-0 against Hull, a team looking for an automatic promotion place, leaving the Addicks in danger of drifting free of the team above them in the relegation slots.
“We are going down,” chanted the Charlton fans – an admission that you won’t hear from Riga.
“I’ve never been relegated in my life and I don’t want to know what this feeling is like to be relegated,” he said after the match.
“We need time to find the real problems and to work on it. We have to be better tactically, better technically and better in our will.
“The first thing is to push everybody, individually and collectively. They have to work on all aspects of the game.
“We need some help. We are in the transfer window and we need freshness to be able to face this big challenge.”
After shipping 11 goals in two games, Charlton now have the worst goal difference of any of the 92 professional clubs as well as something approaching a full scale revolt on its hands from supporters keen to see the back of owner Roland Duchatelet who has overseen 10 managerial changes with little show for all the upheaval.
