And finally the good news: Powell in VOTV135

The eighth and final Voice of The Valley of the 2016/17 season is now on sale - and we're delighted to have ex-Charlton manager CHRIS POWELL as guest of honour in its pages, five years after he led the Addicks out of League One. He's been talking to Matt Wright.


In fact, it's a double celebration issue, as John Ingram also looks back at the 1974/75 promotion campaign. Meanwhile, Rick Everitt reports from the Unity Protest in Belgium and Kyle Andrews gives his verdict on Karl Robinson. Plus all the usual features and more in the last VOTV until August. 


VOTV135 will be on sale again at The Valley on April 30th prior to the  home match against Swindon Town. It is also  available to order (below or left). 


Subscriptions cost £20 in the UK and copies are sent out by first-class post immediately on publication, while it's £27 elsewhere in Europe and £34 elsewhere (see second PayPal widget below, which may not be visible on mobile devices). New subscriptions taken out now will begin next season. If you prefer not to pay via PayPal, drop us a line at and we will supply details of how to pay by cheque.

Can Robinson yet lead an unlikely Easter rising?

Increases for 11 blocks in leaked 2017/18 prices

Voice of The Valley revealed Charlon's season-ticket prices for the 2017/18 season before the club itself - and adult and over 65 fans previously located in 11 east and west stand blocks face £25 increases if they opt to renew. The north stand is unchanged. However, there are £25 reductions for others and larger cuts in east stand block G and the family stand.

The family tree is stronger than a broken home

Charlton fan and author PAUL BREEN reflects on the sacrifice of PC Keith Palmer, a longstanding Valley season-ticket holder, who was killed in Wednesday's terrorist attack on the Houses of Parliament. Read it.


We obviously extend our sympathy to Keith's family and friends, as well as to those of the other victims of this shocking incident.
