Season's end: VOTV175 looks at what lies ahead

The eighth and final issue of Voice of The Valley for the 2021/22 campaign contained news that VOTV will cease publication in September, more than 34 years after it first began, with a bumper double issue which will also celebrate the 30th anniversary of the return to The Valley in 1992.

 

VOTV175 reported a much better sequence of results for the Addicks, culminating in the 1-0 win at promotion-chasing Rotherham United, while looking ahead to next season. Paul Breen writes on what's needed in terms of recruitment and the contract situation, which will include a decision about the future of Jake Forster-Caskey (pictured), who has recently returned from long-term injury. Wyn Grant asks how far it is reasonable to hold Johnnie Jackson - or any manager - responsible for what happens on the field.

 

We've got Rick Everitt's analysis of and reaction to the club's season-ticket prices and recently published annual accounts, Matt Wright on classic Charlton partnerships down the years and much more from Airman Brown, Brian Cowan, Martin Cowan and Natasha Everitt, while John Ingram closes the innings with a trip to the cricket.

VOTV 174 reflects on a damaging run of results

The penultimate Voice of The Valley of the season has been published and is now available to order online for first-class posting out. It will also be on sale at the Lincoln City game on April 2nd. And it's still just £2.

 

As well as reflecting on a miserable sequence of matches, VOTV174 looks in detail at the fall-out from owner Thomas Sandgaard’s recent interview on BBC London and Q&A with the Charlton Athletic Supporters’ Trust, in which he made controversial – and inaccurate – claims about operating losses under owners prior to Roland Duchâtelet’s 2014 takeover of club.


Of course, there’s much more to read in the March issue, including Natasha Everitt’s interview with academy manager Steve Avory – a genuine Charlton success story – Matt Wright on the post-lockdown decline in standards of behaviour around football, and Wyn Grant on the Addicks’ claim to be a “big club”. John Ingram looks back fondly at early 70s striker Ray Treacy, Steve Dixon recalls his troubled trip to Maine Road in 1985 and David Hammond ask what happens to loyalty and identity when clubs increasingly rely on loaned-out players.


Martin Cowan questions whether Charlton fans should feel cheated by the way this season has panned out, Airman Brown reports from Derek Ufton’s memorial service and Paul Breen argues for the club to sign up to the Her Game Too campaign.

Burstow sale takes pride of place in VOTV173

Mason Burstow, who has been sold to Chelsea

It was a dramatic transfer deadline day at Charlton, and it all fell sweetly for the deadline of the sixth Voice of The Valley of 2021/22. The February issue looks in detail at the sale of 18-year-old Mason Burstow to Chelsea, the signing of Scott Fraser from Ipswich Town and the televised win at Portsmouth, which all happened within a matter of hours.

 

It’s not just Burstow in VOTV173, we’ve also got Steve Dixon on the rediscovery of early 1980s matches and more on the Charlton museum YouTube, Matt Wright on the importance of journeymen footballers, with a focus on Sean Clare, and player analysis in the 90s & now, Brian Cowan on the Hartlepool monkey and John Ingram on 1975, plus much more.

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.
