    It was 2005 @FosseFilberto

    The year after we sold Rooney, the best player we’d produced in a generation, and for most of the season our main striker was Marcus Bent lol.

    Moyes was **** hot in them days tbf like.

    That’s pretty much what happened with us. The two clowns who bought us, spent what little money we had on range rovers and luxury waterfront flats. If they hadn’t of fallen out over who could spend the most, I doubt whether Charlton would exist today.

    Because I have an interest in the sport and a hope that one day we can perhaps get a European spot again.

    ... and I wonder who before that? ... either way it shows just how dominant the 6 have been ... like going to a birthday party where the mega birthday cake is always shared amongst a select few whilst the poorer kids are only given a bite size bun <laugh>

    Sorry mate, hadn't realised, pages move on so quick and I'm lazy at reading back sometimes.

    I just hope if we ever do reach such a height ever again that we don't **** it up losing a qualifier on penalties to partizan Belgrade

    Well us in 96, 97, 02 and 03. Pretty sure there have been others, didn't Ipswich make it one year?

    Blackburn obviously. Leeds a few times. Norwich - though may have been before 2nd place got in.

    In fairness that was before Chelsea, Tottenham and Man City were big clubs so we weren't competing with so many goliaths of the game.

    I may be wrong.

    No worries, only jesting. My comments all the way through have been to highlight the hypocrisy. As soon as there was potential to affect the PL and the cash it provides, we all had to come together to stop it. Dover is just one of hundreds of examples where the reality is somewhat different. Football solidarity my arse...!

    3rd and 4th always had to qualify. Only top two got straight into groups.

    It may have affected how many qualification rounds they had to go through but they'd have had to qualify either way.

    I think we've got worse years to come tbh, but I'm kinda used to it now.

    I actually think fighting for survival is far more exciting than mid table. Maybe not so much at first because until maybe Jan /Feb you think you're in with a chance of top 8, but once that goes it's a boring second half of the season if you're mid table.. Down the bottom it's intense as ****.

    I agree...every game means something at the bottom..mid table is the most dead place to be
