It is safe to say that Charlton Athletic have surpassed expectations during the current campaign following their promotion from League One.
With 16 matches played so far this season the Addicks sit in 11th place despite being made favourites to be battling relegation before the season got under way.
However, with Neil Warncok leaving his post as Cardiff City manager earlier this week, nerves have begun to creep in.
The Evening Standard reported on Tuesday that Bowyer and former Millwall boss Neil Harris were the favourites to succeed Warnock in South Wales.
I know it’s unlikely Lee Bowyer will walk to the cardiff job but if he does who would we bring in? who would you want? #cafc

Bowyer has become one of the most sought after managers in English football after working what many consider to be miracles with Charlton amid a host of off-field problems.
Whilst Charlton fans obviously don’t want Bowyer to go, many have started to ponder who could come in in his place.
And here is what they have had to say…
Ideally would have been Rowett if a month ago but not now obviously
Jacko if he wanted it otherwise Nathan Jones
Knows the club

Jones ….. fab Coach! First 20’ against Luton they tore us to pieces, took foot of gas as 1-0 up and they thought done!! Not!! But great play!!
Jones is the man … surely Cardiff would take him!!

Jacko to step up, nailed on when bowyer does finally move on

Someone who knows the league inside and out to keep us up.
Probably someone like Adkins, did a decent job with Hull last year.
Other names worthy of a mention, Tony Pulis, Nathan Jones, Aitor Karanka
left wing choices: Gareth Ainsworth young hungry manager, Michael Flynn
