It's you who has a problem with the truth, Roland

For the third Tuesday running, the Charlton owner issued a statement about the Coalition Against Roland Duchâtelet (CARD) on the club's official website on September 25th.


Duchâtelet claimed the fans - and significantly the EFL, whom he is expected to meet in October - "deserve to know what really happened" over the staff bonus dispute - yet his statement made fanciful claims and is mysteriously short on a number of key details.


RICK EVERITT fills in some of the holes in Duchâtelet's version.

Take a bow, boss! You deserve it after Bradford

Charlton may have started the new season slowly but three successive victories took 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...

Nicky Bailey tells VOTV about THAT penalty miss

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.
