Premier League players have restarted their season by "taking the knee" to show their support for the Black Lives Matters campaign following the death of George Floyd in Minnesota, USA.
On the eve of Charlton's return to Championship action at Hull City, author and Addicks fan PAUL BREEN looks at the relevance of the issue to our own club. Read what he has to say on the subject here.
Our exclusive story published here about the Varney/Barclay approach for Charlton has now gone national – and led directly to discussions with the club.
VOTV contributor JONATHAN MILLER argues that the big beasts of Charlton’s golden years in the Noughties need to come together for one last stand to save Charlton. Read his take on the current situation here.
Former Charlton chief executive Peter Varney and British investor Andrew Barclay are ready to end the crisis at Charlton Athletic with an offer to buy the club, as well as the freehold title to The Valley and the Addicks’ New Eltham training ground, Voice of The Valley can reveal.
Barclay has been working closely with Varney for a number of weeks. Read RICK EVERITT's exclusive report here.
The final scheduled Voice of The Valley of the 2019/20 season was published on Saturday, April 18th, and can only be ordered here for first-class posting out.
In addition to a dozen or more pages of detailed coverage of the ownership shambles at Charlton, VOTV159 includes all the usual features. There are contributions from Paul Breen, Wyn Grant, John Ingram, Kevin Nolan and Matt Wright, with reflections on the tragic loss of fan Seb Lewis to Covid-19, as well as the wider implications of the health emergency for Charlton and the game.
Rick Everitt analyses the club's recently published 2018/19 accounts and finally puts an end to a mystery that has baffled Charlton fans for more than 50 years. The issue also pays tribute to the club and community trust's former benefactor Sir Maurice Hatter, who has died at the age of 90.
Breen imagines how the QPR home game played out in a world without the crisis while Grant looks at the abandoned 1939/40 season. Nolan has his say on the club in crisis and also chips in to Wright's entertaining anecdotes about the difficulty staff sometimes have interviewing player, while Ingram pays his personal tribute to the late Les Turner.
