Feeling green? You can blame Norwich for a lot

Norwich at The Valley for a friendly in 2018

Norwich City are set to become The Valley's first Premier League visitors in a competitive match since 2007 when they arrive for Sunday's FA Cup third round clash. But 12 years ago there was nothing to divide the clubs in status.


RICK EVERITT looks at why one unlucky defeat to the Canaries played a big part in condemning Charlton to a decade of despair. 

The search for Jackson's right-hand man goes on

Jackson's bench still has a vacancy in early January

Once manager Johnnie Jackson had been installed as manager, the question became who would join his depleted support staff. MATT WRIGHT was so confident that Jackson would get the job back in November that he was already exploring some possibilities and musing on the importance of the right back-up team. His VOTV171 article is here.

Celebration time for keeper Craig MacGillivray following a recent win

There's a distinct holiday feel to VOTV172, which covers all the games up to and including the December 18th trip to Plymouth, but most importantly Johnnie Jackson's appointment as manager the previous day and other changes to the football management set-up.


Kevin Nolan returns with a typically original tale of a Charlton Christmas past, Matt Wright clambers aboard one his favourite hobby horses following the Gateshead game and we also take a close look at the Addicks in the FA Cup past, present and future. Plus John Ingram on his favourite Charlton gifts down the years and more, as well as all the usual features.

It's all about JJ in VOTV171

There are no prizes for guessing who's the main story in VOTV171, the fourth issue of the 2021/22 season. The Addicks' strong revival under caretaker boss Johnnie Jackson made him odds-on favourite to land the permanent job. 


VOTV171 reports on the transition and Matt Wright considers what a Jackson-led coaching team might look like.


We've got all the action up to and including the win at Burton Albion, with Jayden Stockley's controversial sending-off, and look ahead to Charlton's televised second round FA Cup clash with Gateshead and what fans can reasonably expect over the remainder of the seaason.


Plus there's much more from our regular band of contributors, including what happened years ago when an Addicks matchday mascot went on strike.
