Progress has been made on the financial side of Chris Powell's new contract, but footballing issues remain (possibly a director of football?): Contract
I had dinner yesterday in London with someone who acts as a consultant to Premier League clubs and may shortly accept a senior post with them. He says that he really likes Charlton and comes to The Valley from time to time. He is concerned about our current position, but thinks that the key to safety is beating Millwall.
He thinks that Chris Powell would benefit from working with a director of football. He thinks that he has surrounded himself with too many 'mates', notably Alex Dyer, and would benefit from some new thinking.
