The last copy of VOTV to be sold at The Valley was handed over at 7.20pm on Tuesday, October 25th, ahead of Charlton's home defeat by MK Dons. It marked the end of a ritual that has been part of the Addicks' matchday scene, on and off, since January 1988.
The 84-page double issue included contributions from many of the names who have filled its pages over the last decade, if not earlier, including Steve Dixon, John Ingram, Kevin Nolan and Matt Wright.
Simon Matthews also reprises his popular "Where They Are Now" feature looking at former players and manager, plus there's more from Paul Breen, Doug Chapman, Simon Crook, Brian Cowan, Martin Cowan, Wyn Grant, The Lone Gunman, Dave Hammond, Harry Low and Heather McKinlay.
This special edition reflects on the fanzine's history but also covers all the latest news, as you'd expect, with a detailed look at the playing squad and behind the scenes at the club as the new season continues.
Despite this being the largest-ever issue, we still couldn't fit everything in, so we've posted a bonus feature by "Lewis Coaches" on former Charlton historian Colin Cameron here.
