Charlton Athletic betting
Having spent the last three seasons in League One, Charlton Athletic finished in third place last season and earned promotion back to the Championship. They’ve been moving between the second and the third tiers of English football system ever since their seven-year sting in the Premier League ended in 2007.
There isn’t much to be said about a team that returns to a league after a while, but if the experience of previous seasons is taken into account, Charlton shouldn’t worry too much about getting relegated immediately, though they are given the betting odds of just 9.00 for it. The last time they did it, they stuck around for four years. But on the other hand, they don’t seem to stand much chance to get promoted to the Premier League either, with the betting odds for that considerably longer at 21.00. But if you’re a daredevil ready to back them to win the league, you’ll be pleased to know that the odds of that happening stand at 101.00.
Charlton Key Players
Substantial squad changes between seasons are often a mark of a team changing tiers, and Charlton were no exception this summer. There were no less than 15 new arrivals spread across departments, and 18 departures, even though the only player whose exit generated any revenue was defender Anfernee Dijksteel, who joined Middlesbrough for €2.2 million.
Lee Bowyer, the former Leeds United star whose playing career started at Charlton, is now the Charlton manager. Despite signing Ben Amos from Bolton Wanderers for free, Bowyer will likely stick with 24-year-old Dillon Phillips between the posts, while Tom Lockyer, who has recently broken into the Wales national team, is set to join captain Jason Pearce at the back. Naby Sarr and Adedeji Oshilaja are likely to compete for the third spot in Bowyer’s preferred three-at-the-back system.
Chelsea loanee Conor Gallagher should play a big part in the middle as the team’s main engine, behind West Ham man Josh Cullen and Jonathan Williams who will probably be the main sources of creativity. There are a lot of options to choose from upfront, but Jonathan Leko and Chuks Aneke should make a mark with the number of goals scored. Lyle Taylor will be there to provide fierce competition.
Charlton, also referred to as the Addicks, have a long-standing rivalry with Millwall, ever since Millwall moved to the southern part of London in 1910. Millwall took up abode at The Den, which is positioned barely a few miles from Charlton’s ground The Valley, and their clashes have always had an extra spark.
In mid 1980s, the Addicks temporarily left The Valley for security reasons and shared Crystal Palace’s Selhurst Park until 1991. Neither set of fans took to this kindly, therefore enmity between the two clubs arose. It was temporarily assuaged when Charlton returned to The Valley, but in 2005, the rivalry broke out anew for fresh reasons. Charlton beat Palace at Selhurst Park in the first part of the 2004/05 Premier League season, and following a 2-2 draw at The Valley, Palace were relegated which was followed by a fierce and public altercation between the two chairmen.
The club was formed in 1905 by a group of teenagers in Charlton, which lies in East London on the southern bank of the river Thames. The therefore spent their earliest years playing in youth leagues, and only became a senior club in 1913.
Following a season in the Kent League and the Southern League each, they joined the Third Division South in 1921 and earned promotion to the Second Division eight years later. Their first taste of top-flight football came in 1936/37, which is when they achieved their best league result to this day by finishing second. They stuck in there, surprisingly enough, for over two decades, including World War II when no football was played. But in 1957 it was back to the Second Division and apart from a few brief forays down in the Third, they remained there until the mid-80s when they managed another four-year stint among the elite. The last one they’ve had so far was between 2000 and 2007.
Charlton’s only major trophy remains the 1947 FA Cup, which they won by beating Burnley a year after appearing in their first final which they lost to Derby County.
