Scottish charm merchant Billy Davies is the latest name associated with the managerial vacancy at Charlton: Billy Davies
He left Nottingham Forest two years ago and his pay off salary has expired so he is in 'gizza a job' mode.
It will be recalled that when Curbs left, Davies was initially the favourite to succeed him, but after initial talks did not take the hotel room made available for him in Bexleyheath.
Chicago Addick has a low opinion of him and the views of Forest fans are mixed. He could, however, be rough, tough and desperate enough to take the poisoned chalice.
Richard Cawley of the SLP has tweeted that he is not expecting a decision in the early part of this week. Meanwhile, my non-league club has confirmed the manager in post and made two key signings.
