‘A world of his own’ – Plenty of Charlton fans discuss player who touched the ball just 21 times Burton defeat

Charlton Athletic’s eight-game unbeaten run in the league came to a shuddering end on Tuesday night, as they were stunned by a 4-2 defeat to struggling Burton Albion at The Pirelli Stadium.

Goals from Lukas Akins and Joe Powell had the hosts 2-0 ahead after 40 minutes, and although Paul Smyth pulled one back for the Addicks before half time, Sam Hughes’ strike quickly restored Burton’s lead after the interval.

Again Charlton pulled one back, this time through Chuks Aneke midway through the second half, but Charles Vernam’s goal 14 minutes from time was enough to seal all three points for the Brewers.

On a frustrating night for Charlton, one man who struggled considerably, was Marcus Maddison.

The summer signing, of whom so much was expected at The Valley, failed to make any sort of an impact on the game, completing just 63.6% of his passes and touching the ball just 21 times before being substituted after 57 minutes of the game, according to WhoScored.

That is something that did not go unnoticed by a number of Charlton fans as they took to Twitter to give their thoughts on the game, with Maddision coming in for a considerable amount of criticism.

Here, we take a look at what some of those supporters had to say about the attacker.
