READTwenty years after challenging for Europe, the Addicks have been bounced around from one owner to another with nothing to show for it but decay. Now fans just want something to believe in

It is not a good season for Charlton Athletic fans to feel despair. They were fourth in the Premier League 20 years ago this week, in the middle of a run of four wins in five games that began with victories against Chelsea at home and Tottenham Hotspur on the road. Arsenal would go on to be unstoppable champions (Charlton also drew with them), but many felt like they were rooting for London’s young monarchs.

Now, Charlton are London’s tenth-ranked team, behind Leyton Orient and ahead of only AFC Wimbledon and Sutton United in the EFL pyramid. They haven’t won a league game since November. Even then it was only one that month and even then it took two penalties to beat the team bottom of League One 2-1.
