The Australian consortium aiming to take over Charlton have been given until the end of the week to put their money on the table, while owner Roland Duchatelet's bid to buy out ex-directors' historic loans at a discount is being rejected by some.
Further cut-price player sales are being instigated by Addicks owner Roland Duchatelet (pictured left), after the breakdown between the Belgian and the Australian consortium keen to take over Charlton continues. Defender Harry Lennon is likely to be the next to leave, for Southend United.
As the Charlton takeover appears to be hitting the rocks, RICK EVERITT calls on local MPs Matt Pennycook and Clive Efford to seek the answers fans need and for the EFL to answer questions about its own conduct.
RICK EVERITT's detailed VOTV143 analysis of Charlton's 2016/17 annual accounts, which were made available by Companies House at the beginning of April, is now available to read in full online here.
RICK EVERITT reports on a night at The Valley when the action off the pitch ultimately eclipsed the excitement on it, as the men who would be Charlton's new board took seats at the front of the directors' box.
Voice of The Valley's final issue of the season is still available to order here for first-class posting out.
With a change of manager since the previous issue and a sharp reversal in form there was no shortage of topics for our regular line-up of contributors to sink their teeth into. Matt Wright takes a detailed look at Karl Robinson's 17 momths in charge, while Kyle Andrews and Rick Everitt look at the early transformation under Lee Bowyer, which revived the team's play-off hopes.
Everitt also analyses Charlton's recently published annual accounts for 2016/17, while Wright tells the fascinating story of the club's troubled 1954 tour to South America with the help of original letters home. John Ingram ends the season by looking back at past encounters with Blackburn Rovers, who were the final visitors to The Valley.

Ex-Charlton winger John Robinson spoke exclusively to Voice of The Valley's US correspondent DOUG CHAPMAN in Florida in January 2018 for VOTV141.
Robinson updated our readers on his activities in the States - and revealed that he is still feels so passionately about his 11 years at Charlton that he shed a tear when fans chose him for the club's hall of fame. Now you can read the main part of Doug's interview here.
