Increases for 11 blocks in leaked 2017/18 prices

Voice of The Valley can reveal 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

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

VOTV134 reflects on Robinson on the ropes

Charlton's season appeared to come to a premature end at The Valley on Tuesday, February 21st, with the 1-0 defeat by Oxford United (above) putting the League One play-offs beyond reasonable hope for latest boss Karl Robinson. So what next for the Addicks?


The March issue of Voice of The Valley was published before the following Saturday's home defeat by Bury and may contain a few clues. Regardless, we've called in our old pal Kevin Nolan to raise a chuckle or too. They call it gallows humour.


Updated to include the Oxford game, we've got reaction to the five-match winless spell - and the heroic win at Bolton Wanderers on the last Saturday in January - while Kyle Andrews evaluates the club's transfer window signings in the cold light of late February.


Rick Everitt reports on the third instalment of the Getting To Know The Network podcast and pays tribute to late defender David Shipperley, while the Lone Gunman provides a loaded analysis of the use of statistics in the modern game.


We've also got contributions from Matt Wright, Simon Matthews, Brian Cowan and John Ingram, and why some of Charlton's female fans decided to got to WAR ahead of protests against the owner in Sint-Truiden. Plus all the usual features and more.


VOTV134 is now available below to order for first class posting out.

Missed VOTV133? You can still order it here

Due to the postponement of the Scunthorpe United game on Saturday, January 21st, we're aware some regular readers missed out on VOTV133. If you're one of them, you can still order it below.


In it, Matt Wright looks at new manager Karl Robinson's many public pronouncements and evaluates the rationale, the risks and the benefits - as well as the departure of Morgan Fox. Kyle Andrews pays tribute to young stars Joe Aribio and Ezri Konsa - and to Robinson for playing them. Plus we've got Paul Breen on fellow Irishman Josh Magennis's positive impact on the Addicks, Zaki Dogliani on the sale of Ademola Loookman and other youth products, while the Lone Gunman returns to focus his sights on Charlton chief executive Katrien Meire. John Ingram looks back to 1973/74 – and Wyn Grant even further. We also pay tribute to former defender Paul Went and, more personally, to supporter Pete Flynn, who passed away before Christmas having been an essential part of the VOTV matchday line-up since 2013 and a loyal mate of the editor for much longer.
