The latest edition of Four Four Two has a feature on fifty top Football League footballers, chosen through website voting by fans. The only Charlton player to feature is Nicky Bailey in the 'best of the rest'. He is described as 'a rare ray of light at The Valley this season'. If we can keep him, Racon and Shelvey next season, we might be serious contenders in League 1.
Number 48 is Charlie MacDonald, now hitting them in at Brentford. His four years at Charlton are described as 'frustrating'. He then went to score 28 for Fleet and had a fruitless season at Southend. Given that Brentford are likely to be promoted to League 1, will he come back to haunt us?
Was he one that got away? Not really. He scored a good equaliser against Newcastle, but he wasn't Premiership or even Championship quality. But that is not a consideration for us these days.
Having spent much of the day in the august surroundings of the Royal Society I hoped I could get away from Charlton matters, but then I saw a Derby County fan bearing down on me. He reminded me that we play them at the end of the season. As usual, he wanted to know what had gone wrong.
What we both agreed on is that in no other walk of life would you fail to deliver at three organisations and then be rewarded with a higher level job (Dowie at Newcastle).
'Bottom club Charlton' is a label I will be glad to see the back of. Hopefully, 'Charlton Nil' will not occur too many times next season. But then we went down to the Championship, I was expecting more home wins.
