The day the earth moved at Sparrows Lane

RICK EVERITT took a close look at what's been happening over the summer at Charlton's training ground - or more accurately next door to it - in VOTV136. Is a big chunk of the money from Ademola Lookman's sale last January really being spent on a neighbouring rugby ground – and if so why?

Second Voice of season packs a hefty punch

We've a heavyweight line-up in the second Voice of The Valley of the season – and with the team flying high in League One there's an unusually upbeat tone to VOTV137.


Kyle Andrews takes a detailed look at the Addicks sparkling start to the season in an issue packed with strong contributions, including articles from regulars Wyn Grant, John Ingram and Matt Wright.


Rick Everitt has interviewed former 1980s right-back Paul Curtis and we also hear from ex-director and former official supporters' club chair Craig Norris why he won't be getting behind Roland Duchatelet's ownership any time soon.


It's an issue that fans for legendary former forward Stuart Leary will definitely enjoy, while Simon Matthews has compiled his annual round-up of where former Addicks are now.


The October Voice of The Valley will be back on sale outside The Valley before the Bury game on Saturday, September 23rd, and is also available to order online.

Extra goals are no exaggeration for the Addicks

Worth celebrating: Jake Forster-Caskey after the fourth

Charlton left it late to add to the scoreline in their 4-1 thumping of Northampton Town at The Valley, wth two of their goals coming in second-half stoppage time.


But there was little sense that the margin of their victory was undeserved, as RICK EVERITT reports. Read more here.

Leak shows owner had Valley valued for housing

A detailed document supplied anonymously to Voice of The Valley and a variety of other Charlton sources appears to prove that the club had the stadium site professionally assessed for redevelopment as residential accommodation early last year. A full report is contained in VOTV136.
