I've had some dark days as a Charlton supporter. Leaving The Valley has to be the lowest but 11March 2014 is down there with them.
Today Charlton's new owner decided to sack Chris Powell. A man who has worked miracles in the last three seasons to give us back a club we felt proud of and loved in the way only Charlton fans can. A man who we felt was one of us and not just a man in a suit. A man who wasn't scared to celebrate with the fans when the circumstances were right.
Now we have a new "Head Coach" a title which always makes me think that someone else is running the team. Is he a yes man? Only time will tell as it will as to whether Charlton stay up or descend to League One again.
Whatever happens we have a lot to thank Chris Powell for. Personally it's promotion at Carlisle for me but I'm sure other Charlton fans have their own special moment.
Thank you Chris. You will be missed.
