Charlton Athletic are facing the prospect of searching for a new manager following reports on Monday afternoon.
London News Online have claimed that Lee Bowyer has resigned from his post at the Valley with a potential move to join Birmingham City in the pipeline.
The Blues are facing a challenging campaign of their own but supporters in South London will be more bothered about what’s going on in SE7.
Charlton are currently sitting in ninth position in League One and while they’re just two points from the play-off spots there’s a significant amount of work to do if they’re to beat a plethora of team to finish in the top six.
Results have been mixed of late with two wins, two draws and two defeats in their last six games which has led supporters to come to terms with the fact that an immediate return to the second tier is in the offing.
Quiz: Can you remember how many league goals each of Charlton Athletic’s last 15 top goalscorers scored?
Of course the reports of Bowyer’s departure have attracted quite a response from supporters of the Addicks.
Here’s what a selection have had to say.
No surprise there if it is Birmingham, can't blame him, we are not getting promotion this year (Not sure that is all is fault although some of it is). Just hope we can keep Gallen

I’m disappointed it’s had to come to this. A shame this season has overshadowed the achievements he did. Thanks for the memories Lee 🔴⚪️
