By bringing together information from Charlton's published accounts over the last three years, RICK EVERITT identifies where the money has gone on transfer fees and what the benefits have been for the club. The conclusions are alarming. Read it here.
As the season draws to a close following a club meeting with CAST members at The Valley on Sunday morning, editor RICK EVERITT has one more enquiry to make of the Charlton chief executive.
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).

Ahead of Gillingham's fourth post-war visit to The Valley on Easter Monday, RICK EVERITT looked at the historic challenges facing Charlton boss Karl Robinson in the final three matches of the season, including the chances of avoiding the club's lowest league finish in 91 years. Read it here.
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.
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.
