Russell Slade is the latest tip

Former Leyton Orient manager Russell Slade is the latest favourite for the vacant managerial post at Charlton: Russell Slade

One of his advantages is that he has experience of dealing with barking owners at Cardiff City.

Odds have also shortened on Johnnie Jackson becoming player-manager.

Chris Powell looks as if he is going to go to Bolton.

Roland buys back club

Roland Duchatelet is buying back Belgian club Sint Truiden, apparently desperate to own a club on his home turf: Buy back

Roland said in a press conference that a foreign buyer would not have been as good as they would lack knowledge of Belgian competition and mentality. Quite.

Disrespectful fans have suggested that there is an ideal candidate for the post of chief executive.

Head hunted

Steve Head has been appointed as Charlton's new chief scout: Steve Head

This is a solid appointment and if it can be complemented by a decent manager we might be getting somewhere. The odds are shortening on Nigel Adkins.

New transfer target

Crawley's Gwion Edwards is the latest transfer target for Charlton: Edwards

Who is choosing these targets? I don't know.

Keith Hill is no longer in the frame as the new Charlton manager. He has decided to stay at Rochdale.

Mandy Anderson-Myers is the latest departure from The Valley. With her departure from the head of ticketing role, it means there are vacancies there and for head of commerce and head of communications.

Isle of Thanet sources are claiming that she left the building after a row with the head of finance. Happy Valley.

Inigo Calderon talks?

Reports are circulating that Charlton are talking to 34-year old Spanish defender Inigo Calderon who is leaving Brighton and Hove Albion: Departing Seagull

Who he would talk to is a mystery to me.

And for the latest candidate

Scottish charm merchant Billy Davies is the latest name associated with the managerial vacancy at Charlton: Billy Davies

He left Nottingham Forest two years ago and his pay off salary has expired so he is in 'gizza a job' mode.

It will be recalled that when Curbs left, Davies was initially the favourite to succeed him, but after initial talks did not take the hotel room made available for him in Bexleyheath.

Chicago Addick has a low opinion of him and the views of Forest fans are mixed. He could, however, be rough, tough and desperate enough to take the poisoned chalice.

Richard Cawley of the SLP has tweeted that he is not expecting a decision in the early part of this week. Meanwhile, my non-league club has confirmed the manager in post and made two key signings.
