Seb's Massive Motivation

Sebastien Schemmel insists that he will bounce back at The Valley after what he regards as a disappointing personal performance against Fulham.

"I was bad and I'm disappointed for the fans and the team especially, because I couldn't help them.

"I wasn't good and I forgot my football but the main thing is I didn't lose my enthusiasm; you will get games where you don't play so well.

"Everyone was disappointed by the Fulham match because we could have gone into the top half, and put some space between us and the teams near the bottom.

"We could also have got nearer to the big teams like Manchester United; we have got to get closer to the tenth spot.

"We came up against a well organised Fulham side but if we had scored the first I think the game would have been over and we'd have won 2-0 or 3-0.

"The referee kept whistling against us and then we fell asleep, let them get the first, and made lots of mistakes - and it is not our habit to make so many at home.

"We were angry after the Fulham game but with the players we have got we can reach all our dreams.

"Now we have the Charlton and Tottenham games and I think we can win them."

Charlton, of course, is the side against whom Sebastien made his debut at The Valley last season, and he says: "That was as a loan player but I am so happy to be here on a permanent deal - I love the club."
