That is the theme of a piece on BBC Sport, although it doesn't really seem to give any answers:
The comments by Charlton fans and fans of other clubs make for quite interesting reading. A Swansea fan comes painfully close to the truth when he says that it's another case of fans of a medium-sized club living in cloud cuckoo land, a phenomenon now starting to appear at Swansea.
A Charlton fan complains about the failure of Curbs to give a chance to the likes of Jamal Campbell-Ryce or Michael Turner but one always to put that in the context of who else was available at the time and the rate at which they developed.
Anyway, it makes a nice break from writing up my notes on the management of Johne's disease in South Australia while the sun streams in through the window.
