Adkins under pressure as Sandgaard flies in

Thomas Sandgaard has flown from the United States for tonight's game against Accrington Stanley as pressure mounts on Nigel Adkins: https://londonnewsonline.co.uk/charlton-athletic-owner-thomas-sandgaard-jets-in-as-pressure-ramps-up-on-manager-nigel-adkins/

Some fans are suggesting that Sandgaard is unwilling to sack the beleaguered boss because of the compensation he would command.   I think that a bigger issue is the lack of availability of a good replacement willing to take on a League One club in a relegation battle.

Forget Chris Wilder or Chris Powell giving up his England role.   Johnnie Jackson and Jason Euell would no doubt be caretakers after a dismissal, but arguably Jackson in particular is as much part of the problem as part of the solution.

As for Curbs in an advisory role, it's a long time since he did that at Fulham and it wasn't a great success.
