Today marks Chris Powell's third anniversary in charge at The Valley. This is some achievement when as many of half of England's 92 league clubs have had a manager who has been in position for less than a year and 23 managers have been fired since the beginning of the season.
Will there be a fourth anniversary? This depends on what happens in the rest of the season, how the relationship with Roland develops and whether the new owner thinks that the club needs a foreign manager. I would have thought the odds were against it.
