Stay Away Chrissy

There is much euphoria over the reported talks with Chris Powell and the potential that he may come back to the Valley as manager.

The man is one of the nicest guys you could ever meet and I met him on one occaision and the memory of his last game at the Valley and his goal and that beaming smile,helps me smile too.

The man is a legend!

I have seen what the crowd can do to their managers when the chips are down, I saw them screaming at Charlton supporter Les Reed as he ineptly managed the team, attemtping to accost Parkie during the Brighton defeat.  The fans have become a fickle lot at the Valley.

I have great memories of Chris Powell.  All Primeministers leave office in failure, all football managers leave football clubs in tears - I would hate the long term legacy of Chris Powell at Charlton to be "Not Good Enough".

Perhaps it's time to reconsider the joint manager option. Chris Powell doesn't strike me as the type to throw a few teacups. Although you'd have expected Kinsella to do so, and he's been involved in managing some of the least committed performances ever seen from a Charlton team.

Any chance of Steve Brown being tempted back? Although we need about four Steve Browns on the pitch!
