Farewell, then, Wim de Corte

Wim de Corte has left Charlton. He arrived as a coach alongside Karel Fraeye last October: Wim de Corte

My usual response when someone leaves the playing or coaching staff at Charlton and it is not clear whether their contribution has been positive or negative is to use the formula deployed by the cinema newsreels when Neville Chamberlain stood down as prime minister in favour of Winston Churchill: 'Thanks for all you tried to do.' However, even that would be too generous.

It remains to be seen who will be assisting Russell Slade, but I don't think they will be Belgian.
