Tony Pulis has revealed that Paul Jewell was one of the contenders for the vacancy at Charlton: Paul Jewell
Reliable sources are indicating that Jewell was one of the short listed candidates. It is not clear whether candidates were interviewed or there was simply a sift of applications.
In a number of ways Jewell - if he had been appointed - would have been the polar opposite of Luzon. He knows English football, especially the Championship. He won three promotions with Bradford and Wigan and got the latter to the League Cup Final.
Admittedly, his standing has waned somewhat as he was unsuccessful at his last two clubs (Derby and Ipswich) and has been out of the game for the last couple of years. However, he would have been an interesting choice, although his linguistic skills in French and Flemish are unknown.
