It's crunch time for everybody at The Valley says embattled supremo Karl Robinson with Charlton 19th in the form table and at risk of falling out of the top ten if they cannot beat the Cod Army on Saturday. Talking to Richard Cawley of the SLP, Robinson insisted 'This is not about me anymore': Growing pressure
Robinson commented: 'It’s now got to a stage where something has to be said. [I didn't think he'd been slow in saying things before now]. Because I can’t just keep saying we’ll be alright, we’ll be alright.'
Just as Charlton's play off hopes disappear down the Mersey, a new issue of Voice of the Valley will be out on Saturday. It can be purchased around the ground before the game or you can order it by post before 3 pm on Friday to be delivered under plain cover to enjoy in the privacy and comfort of your own home.
I have an article which I drafted in my head to while away the time in hospital. Fortunately, I didn't draft it from the time in intensive care when I discovered a facility in Norwegian, but there is a tale from beyond the grave.
