‘It could really go either way’ – Charlton Athletic in the Championship next season: Opinion



Charlton Athletic may have issues to be resolved off the pitch concerning the club’s ownership and the manager’s long-term future, but on-the-pitch the situation could not be brighter following a League One play-off final victory over Sunderland that sends Lee Bowyer’s side into the Championship for next season.

The Addicks return to the Championship after a three season absence, after a regular season that saw them finish in third spot, just three points off Barnsley who went up in an automatic promotion spot.

So how will Charlton do back in the Championship next season?

We discuss………

Alfie Burns

“What Lee Bowyer has done has been superb and in all honesty, there looks like three worse sides in the Championship heading into next season.

“However, the summer is going to be important and Bowyer needs the opportunity to rebuild the squad that’s taken them up.

“If he can get in some fresh faces to add to what he’s already got, Charlton have a great chance of being competitive.”

Toby Wilding

“This could well depend on what happens in the summer transfer window.

“If they are able to keep hold of the likes of Joe Aribo and Patrick Bauer, who have been linked with moves to the Championship and beyond anyway, then they may well have a chance of securing survival with something to spare – which surely has to be the aim in their first season back.

“If they don’t keep those players, then it may well be a long season back in the second tier for the Addicks.”

Louie Chandler

“It could really go either way.

“Their current team with their current coaching set-up would survive comfortably, in my opinion, but the Valley is a very unstable place.

“With Bowyer yet to be offered a new deal and plenty of their first-team players attracting attention, the Addicks could just as easily be in a very poor position come August.”
