Charlton may have started the new season slowly but three successive victories have taken them to the brink of the League One play-off places.
Following the 2-0 win at Bradford City, RICK EVERITT reflects on the reason for the revival and says the credit belongs squarely to new boss Lee Bowyer. He might even merit an award...
Former Charlton midfielder Nicky Bailey provides the main feature in VOTV145, as he talks to Matt Wright about his Valley career – and the moment it all went wrong at the end of the 2009/10 season.
Bailey was possibly the most popular player at the club that year and a regular goalscorer, but speaks honestly about his failure from the spot and its aftermath.
We've also got extensive coverage of the staff bonus row and hear at length from former longserving staff member Sue Gallop about the way she was treated and the toxic atmosphere inside the club.
Plus we take a comprehensive look at the dramatic win at Southend United and Lee Bowyer's encouraging batch of loan signings, and also have Simon Matthews' annual Where They Are Now feature about ex-Charlton players, in what is - in our obviously unbiased view - a particularly strong issue.

The chairman of Dulwich Hamlet has launched a blistering attack on Charlton in his club’s official programme, claiming unnamed Addicks officials treated the homeless non-league outfit with contempt over the pre-season friendly match in July.
The club has announced its match prices, alongside a new £1.50 charge to print tickets at home. Most tickets for fans 18 and over will be dearer by £1 or £2 compared to last season, although student tickets increase by up to £5. We look at the changes in detail.
