      Give it a try early next season

      Quite a few Charlton fans are very quick to get on the team, managers and clubs back. What they seem to forget is that we came a very long way from a club that didn't even have a ground at one point.

      For a start Alan Curbishley is Mr Charlton, he has proved that by what has happened in his time away. Alan Curbishley is a brilliant manager who can operate very very well on a tight budget, during his time at Charlton he was not appreciated enough and the fans even started saying that our seasons were boring and even a relegation fight would be better. Well, they got that didn't they and they got two of them. Which we lost.

      Charlton are now fighting for a play off place in league one and look like they may be spending a few seasons there, but you support a team through thick and thin, don't you?

      Charlton are not playing fantastic football at the moment and seem to struggle when trying to play well infront of goal, overall I can understand why we don't have great fans but a lot of our support is from familys who want to take their young children to watch a game.

      I feel that the tickets are currently pricey, a couple of weeks ago I paid £17 to watch us play Stockport, bottom of the table! For the way Charlton are also playing at the moment this is not worth it.

      Overall if you are looking for a new team you could give Charlton a try, however we are a club who has been abandoned by fans who only want to see Premiership football.

      I would recommend taking a trip to Charlton at the start of next season, as I hope they will be playing better football by then :)

      Charlton Athletic, a club where the possible is made impossible

      Now the new season may only be 3 games old (I write this before the clubs home game against Walsall) but I must admit to being slightly impressed by what I have seen so far. Unlike previous seasons the team has starting playing together quite well and, dare I say it, creating chances in front of goal.

      The players, at the moment, look genuinely motivated and up for the challenges of League 1. A pleasant change from last season when they could not string together two passes let alone win a game.

      The new signings are fitting in well at the back and with just a couple more additions to the squad the team look like they could actually challenge for promotion this year. All appears to be running smoothly.

      However, that as far as I'm concerned is where the good news ends. The club is suffering horrendously from a lack of investment thanks to a board which over the course of three years has undone the previous ten years of hard work to get the club established as a role model for how a top flight football club with limited funds is to be run.

      Poor decisions both on and off the field have cost the club two relegations in three years and numerous 'managers' have signed what seems like hundreds of poor players.

      But if we ignore all of the bad decisions and forget the past three years you could almost be forgiven for believing that from the start this season we have a chance of success. But let's not forget that this is Charlton Athletic, a club which specialises in underachieving, a club which has the capabilities of scoring goals up until Christmas and then doesn't enter the box for the next three months. A club which sees cup runs as something that happens to other teams. A club where the manager tries to defend a one nil defeat.

      But three wins out of three.... Maybe I should start believing?

      Disadvantages

      Nice run club, who are having a bad time of it.

      As I write this Charlton have just won their second away game of the season, but are staring relegation in the face to league one which will be their second relegation in three seasons. Charlton have, over the last three years, in my eyes, made some of the worst managerial decisions ever namely that of Les Reed and Ian Dowie and we are now under the managerial services of Phil Parkinson and a Charlton legend in Mark Kinsella, who after every loss say the same old things - we are trying, it is getting better, etc, etc. Just be a little bit honest these are men who are earning thousands of pounds a week and they are not playing good enough and not doing their job in the correct way. I have been to five games this season and have not seen them win and when at the home game against Southampton I nearly feel asleep!

      For me though my worst moment over the last three years has to be the Carling Cup defeat to Wycombe at home - I have never seen the home fans so angry some threw their shirts on the pitch and lets just say language was not exactly PG. Going back to the present and the team we have this year it's just not strong enough - Luke Varney shipped out to Derby and lasts three games there - come on that is shocking; Chris Dickson some may say doesn't get enough of a chance but what I have seen of him he is one of the laziest players I have ever seen no effort what so ever; Andy Gray look at appearances and goals he has scored for us this season - enough said; and finally bringing in Matt Spring and Keith Gillespa, well five years ago maybe but not when they joined the club - they would struggle to get in my local team.

      Next season in league one we will be many teams cup final and I am not saying there are very good teams in there because there are and I think Charlton should be aiming for a play off place at best. The team at present is not good enough to go higher. Shining lights this year are Nicky Bailey, Rob Elliot and Jonjo Shelvey. What feels really hard for me to take in is that we could be playing Rochdale in a league game - I never in my life thought I would be saying that, but that seems to be the case. Next year will be very hard and a total different style of football. I feel that we need to get rid of Parkinson and bring in Martin Allen or Aidy Boothroyd. I hope that this time next year I will be writing about Charlton having won the league and looking forward to life in the championship but with dwindling crowds at the valley to be expected and a loss of our better players on the cards, who knows anyone for league two .......!!!!!

        hopefully they'll make the right appointment this time around

        Yesterday's home defeat (2-5) to Sheffield United saw the end of Alan Pardews reign as Charlton manager. They languish in 22nd position in the championship and can only dream of their time in the premier league under the management of Alan Curbishley; maybe he'll return, you never know these days, just look at Keegan! In my opinion Charlton have been on a downward spiral ever since Curbishley's departure in May 2006. Since then they've had three managers and none have achieved any real success, Iain Dowie, Les Reed and Alan Pardew. I do feel that this next appointment is really important, they cannot afford to get it wrong, if they're relegated to league one that would be a disaster.

        I do hope Charlton manage to attract a decent manager. They should be able to, they have a fantastic stadium, worthy of premier league football in all honesty and their supporters are very loyal. The squad is also quite strong, although they do have a relatively small young squad compared to other sides in the championship and they have quite a few loan players who could be recalled at any minute. Many of the players have been a success at lower league levels and are finding it hard to adjust to life in the higher echelons of the football ladder. If they get the right manager though then I'm sure they'll be fine, avoid relegation this season and be a force to reckon with next.

        So, who should Charlton go for? In my opinion there are only two people on the shortlist. The first is the obvious man.....Curbishley, nobody would argue if he returned to the club with which he had so much success the first time around. The second is Aidy Boothroyd who was recently let go by mutual consent by Watford, could Watford's loss be Charlton's gain? I think so. He's a great manager, a real man motivator similar in style to Martin O'Neill of Aston Villa and I'm sure he could steer Charlton in a positive direction.

        Charlton cannot afford to get this decision wrong, their supporters must be rather fed up with recent results and the way the team has literally fallen apart since Curbishley's leaving in 2006. I hope they do make the right decision because Charlton is a great club with a proud history and it would be a real shame if they were to fall through the leagues the way clubs like Swindon and Wimbledon (MK Dons) have.

        Thanks for reading, I would be interested to here your thoughts on Charlton's predicament so feel free to comment.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Charlton Athletic were promoted from Division 1 2 season ago when they won the Division 1 title by getting more than 100 points. They had an amazing season then and then last season, they finished mid table and so they were not relegated like quite a few people thought. This season, I think they will not do as well, but that is my opinion. I think that Charlton have got quite a good manager in Alan Curbishley, but I do not rate him as a manager who can make his side win things. Charlton had a very good season last season, although they didn’t win anything and Curbishley managed the team very well. But he doesn't appear to be a manager who can help Charlton get into Europe via the premiership or by winning a cup competition. Charlton have recently signed Luke Young in a £4 million deal and I think he will do very well for the club. He did a lot for his last club Tottenham and he played a lot of games over the past few years, considering he is still a young player. He also scored a few good goals for the club and so Charlton will want him to do the same thing for them. I honestly do not know why Tottenham sold him to Charlton, as he is a good player who will be even better when he is older, but Charlton have made a good signing in him. Overall, I think that Charlton have got a few good players in their squad but I honestly see them as a team who will be fighting for survival in the premiership. I can't see them being relegated, although it could happen if they do not beat the teams who will be in or near the relegation zone all season.

          Disadvantages

          Charlton Athletic have not got that many decent players in their squad, although some of their players are quite impressive and I think they can help Charlton have a fairly good season. I reckon that Charlton’s best players are Jonatan Johansson, Claus Jensen, Richard Rufus and Mark Kinsella. These players have all got a lot of talent and can help Charlton have a good season. Charlton’s manager, Alan Curbishly is quite a good manager, but he has been at the club for quite a while now and although he got them back into the premiership a few season ago when they raced away with the Division 1 title, he hasn’t done that much for them in the premiership. I have never been to Charlton’s stadium, but I have been told that it is quite a nice stadium and one that they would go back to again, if their favourite team were playing them. I think that they are a premiership team and they won’t really need to worry about relegation, but they need to start performing better in some of their games and try and get higher up the league. I think that Charlton will finish around 12th this season although they could do better if they signed a few more good players.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Charlton Athletic have now firmly established themselves as a Premiership club after initially being relegation candidates after their promotion to the top league. They can now be taken seriously as outsiders for a European spot – even if it would only be through the Worthington Cup – and a visit to The Valley is one of the toughest matches of the season. Can Charlton build on their successes, which include 9th place last season, to become a real force to be reckoned with and can they hang on to Alan Curbishley, their hugely talented manager. MANAGER Alan Curbishley has been tipped by many as a future England manager and, although he is no longer part of the FA’s coaching set up, he seems to have overtaken Peter Taylor as England’s best young manager. Curbishley is an excellent motivator (out of the Kevin Keegan mould), he is tactically aware and, just as importantly, he has the fans behind him. There is no doubt that Charlton have the right man at the helm. As long as Curbishley remains at The Valley, Charlton will continue to go from strength to strength. GOALKEEPERS Dean Kiely may not be well known by many people, but those who have seen him play regularly will tell you that he is up there with the best keepers in the country. Second choice goalkeeper, Sasa Ilic, is best know for his heroics in the play-off final against Sunderland. He isn’t as good or consistent as Kiely, but most teams would want a keeper of his quality sitting on the bench. DEFENDERS The key to Charlton’s success is that they don’t have any real stars, but are solid and consistent all the way through. That is certainly the case with their defence. The vastly improved Chris Powell, who has played for England under Sven Goran Eriksson, is one of the better English left-backs while Kishishev, despite being injured currently, will also play an important role this
          season. Luke Young looks to be an excellent signing from Tottenham and Andy Todd is transfer listed. Richard Rufus is, undoubtedly, the star of the Charlton defence but South African international is as good, if not better. The Charlton defence is, on paper, one of the weakest in the division but they don’t concede too many goals, especially at home. MIDFIELDERS Charlton have a very useful, if underrated, midfield. Graham Stuart was, arguably, Charlton’s best player last season and if they are to repeat their success last season he will have to be at his best, scoring and creating goals. Scott Parker is mainly a ball-winning midfielder, but he also has a tremendous amount of skill and is likely to be a future England international. Captain Mark Kinsella is the driving force behind Charlton while John Robinson and Claus Jensen provide some creative influence. STRIKERS Charlton have a group of strikers who are easily capable of scoring a lot of goals this season, and if they do another top half finish is not beyond them. Jonaton Johansson is one of three excellent Finnish strikers currently playing in the Premiership (the others are Jari Litmanen and Mikkael Forssel) and is probably as good as either of the other two. New signing Jason Euell, who can also play in midfield, was brilliant for Wimbledon and should improve in this better team. Shaun Bartlett scored one of the goals of last season and will be looking to continue where he left off during his loan spell and Matt Svensson also found the net on a number of occasions last time round. The injury-prone Clive Mendonca is still at Charlton and youngster Kevin Lisbie has the pace to frighten anyone. Possible line up (4-4-2) D Kiely L Young C Powell R Rufus M Fish M Kinsella S Parker C Jensen G Stuart S Bartlett J Johansson A mid-table finish looks inevitable,
          but it is unlikely that Charlton will finish as high as 9th again. An 11th or 12th place is likely and unless Alan Curbishley strengthens his squad they may stay in the Premiership’s ‘no-mans land’ for a long time – going nowhere up or down.

              Charlton are a team that sounds like Carlton which is a superb car made by Vauxhall in the late 1900's because they are a moose. I would normally offer you a constructive opinion on who I think is the best car out of Charlton and Carlton but I won't because you didnt actually ask for one you greasy haired spider monkey. I rule, Alan Curbishley is a complete arse, and needs his hair shaved off. I would usually say Chris Powell is wikid. But thats boring so I wont say Chris Powell is wikid because he isnt he is a complete peace of poo. If you want to play for charlton then ask Vauxhall as they sound like they know a thing or too. LALALALALA SING WITH ME...CHARLTON CHARLTON! Bieeerrrrrro! Bieeerrrrrro! Bieeerrrrrr0! Naha!

                Did any one notice at the end of the 2000/2001 season, where everybody kept on talking about Ipswich this and Ipswich That. Don't get me wrong Ipswich did great for the first time in the premership, but what about Charlton they beat Chelsea twice, they beat arsenal, they beat Newcastle, they beat spurs, they even draw against Man utd. (what a game that was) If you think about it they either draw or beat most of the top teams, but none of the pundits gave them due respect. And this is a club thats got no money, and all there top players where injured i can't wait for next season when the team is fully fit. COME ON THE REDS

                  Some of you may notice I have already written two Football team opinions, one Liverpool, one Man U. My Loyalties are Charlton, but I have a soft spot for Liverpool, the football team of the '80s and have a hatred of the invincibilty myth of the Man Utd tarts. I am a Season Ticket Holder at the valley and have seen the rise and fall and rise again. This time it's looking like we'll be around for a while. What has caused this. Sound Financial Management and a Sound Football mentality. Three years ago when Charlton won a captivating Playoff final with Sunderland to get promotion. The main aim was to survive without wasting money. Part one did not happen, we got relegated. Part two stayed in place. The money gained from the experience was used wisely by the manager and he invested in some strong players, notably Jenson and JJ. This enable us to do a Man Utd. in the 1st Div and go to sleep in May as the Championship was already secured. This year the team came back into the premiership more experienced, stronger and more ready for the challenge. The result the teams highest finish for 47 Years. Not bad for a team expected to go straight back down again. I hope the progress continues and we can get established as a strong Premiership team. Alan Curbishley will hopefully remain as their coach to continues it's developement. Let August come quickly August is here and again Alan shows his class. Knowing that he is on a limited budget, he hasn't wasted a penny. Four class signing in the summer. Obviously Bartlett joins us permanantly after scoring last years goal of the season. Defender Luke Young, Jason Euell and Keith's son Gavin Peacock has also joined. It proves that a team is a team not just a Veron. Good Luck this Season

                    Charlton have had a good return season to the Premiership. The little Yorkshire team have even made a late bid for a European place. Alan Curbishley has been made known as one of the managers on Manchester United’s shortlist to replace Alex Ferguson, but why would he want to leave Charlton after what he has done with the club. Well apart from the money!!! Signing great players like Bartlett and Johansson who have made an instant impact scoring over 20 goals between them. Jonatan Johansson has been my player of the season. The Finnish international really can finish!!!!! He wasn’t getting a game at Rangers so he decided to join Charlton, which I have to say hasn’t been a bad choice. He starts every game apart form when he is injured. He can hit the back of the net and him and fellow strike partner Shaun Bartlett have formed a good partnership which seems to be working well for Charlton. Charlton could stick around for many years finishing about mid-table which they will be pleased with every season. Will Curbishley take the United job???? In my opinion he is happy enough here at Charlton were could be known as one of the greatest managers of all time.

                        Disadvantages

                        I am only 18 years old and I have been following The Addicks for over four years. I have seen many great moments but nothing like this. Never In all my time as a devoted Charlton fan have I seen our club in a better position, both on and off the pitch. For example, if you told me back in the summer that for a large chunk of the season we would be without our inspirational captain, Mark Kinsella, on top scorer for last season, Andy Hunt, and record signing Jonothan Johansson, not In my wildest dreams would I have thought we would be sitting very comfortably in 8th place. However, after getting hammered by West Ham on Boxing day, we have not looked back. To say we were unstoppable would be a little over the top, but we are certainly unbeatable, as far as this year goes anyway. Since that game we have played 9 matches. Of that we have drawn five and won four. Not bad for one of the pre-season relegation favourites. To think that just four years ago we was near the bottom of Division One, and finished in 15th place. No one gave a second thought to us being in the shake-up at the end of the next season, and we finished four and got promoted. The next season, 1998/99, again no one gave us a chance of staying up, and we pushed the relegation battle right to the last day of the season. Since then we have not looked back, with a nice first place finish in Division One and a swift return to Premiership football. Id just like to say how amazed I am at how far the club has come in the last few years, and may we continue to go from strength to strength in the next few years... ...but there is no doubt about it, il never forget my first few years as a very besotted and PROUD Charlton Athletic fan. Thank You.

                        Charlton Athletic Football Club is a football club based in Charlton, South East London. The club was founded in 1905 and currently plays at The Valley in Charlton. On June 9, 1905, a number of youth clubs in the south-east London area, including both East Street Mission and Blundell Mission, combined to form Charlton Athletic Football Club. Making rapid progress through the local leagues, Charlton joined the Kent League shortly after the First World War, turned professional when the club joined the Southern League in 1920, and was elected to Division Three (South) of the Football League-proper in 1921. Historically, the club's most successful period was the 1930s, when the club's highest league finishes were recorded, and the 1940s, when the club reached the FA Cup final twice, winning in 1947.
