Charlton Athletic’s aim before a ball was kicked this season was to compete for promotion from League One.
Charlton Athletic have made a slow start to the new campaign and have already made the decision to part company with Dean Holden.
The Addicks find themselves sat in 16th position in the third tier table and have picked up six points from their first six league outings. They won 2-1 at home to Fleetwood Town last time out under caretaker boss Jason Pearce.

“Charlton need some stability now and need to bring in a manager who they will back and stick with, as opposed to chopping and changing their boss all the time. They have brought in some useful players for League One level and should be satisfied with their incoming business.
“Alfie May has been one of the best strikers at third tier level over recent times and if he can hit some form, he will take some stopping. Panutche Camara showed during his days at Plymouth Argyle that he can be a solid player and he has a point to prove after his tough spell at Ipswich Town.
“The likes of Terry Taylor, Slobodan Tedic, Harry Isted and Tayo Edun are all solid additions and Charlton fans should be pleased that they have been able to bring in individuals of that ilk to The Valley.
“It is no secret that the squad hasn’t fully clicked yet, hence the inconsistent results, but if whoever the new manager is can get the best out of the squad then there is no reason why the Addicks can’t rise up the table towards the top six.
“As for outgoings, the club have done a good job in terms of reducing the squad size and trimming down the wage bill.”
