Charlton Life – Best Of

edited March 2012 in General Charlton
An Idea

With this season looking to be an historic one for Charlton, I wondered if there is anything that we could do to mark the occasion. What I thought of was producing a “Best of” compilation describing how the season panned out through the writings of Lifers. This could be produced in magazine format with any profits going to the club via Henry's fund for young and upcoming footballers.

Off the top of my head, the following might be the sort of thing that we could include (subject to the authors approval):

- AFKA's 2011 Charlton Reviews
- LL's Statbank
- Shirty's Records Broken
- Selected match previews & reviews
- Best posts on CL about the club/team

I did wonder about getting each lifer to suggest their own best post throughout the season, but I suspect that it may turn into too much of a tome if we included everyone's (though, there's no reason we shouldn't ask for suggestions).

Benefits

The potential benefits are that we'd have a good record of how the season went, we could potentially raise some money for the club and could use it to publicise the website.

Dangers

The potential downsides are that it'll be a lot of work and would require some commitment to achieve and there's no guarantee that we'd break even, let alone make a profit.

Unknowns

As I say, it's an idea. I don't know whether it's a good one or not. From my point of view there are too many unknowns at the moment to say, but I know there are people on here with experience of these matters. What level of support might there be for it? Would Charlton fans welcome something to read about this incredible season or wouldn't they be bothered? Or would they not care to by hard copies of stuff that's available on the net anyway? What might the club's reaction be and how likely is it that there'll be something official to commemorate the season? How much might it cost to produce? How would we price it? How many are we likely to sell? How many would we need to sell to break even?

So I wondered what you all think; could it work or is it a lame duck?

    If it hasn't got the Jim Davidson threads I can't see it taking off.

    If it's to be representative it must have at least one labour versus tory thread with a minimum 2,000 posts.

    Celtic or Rangers - prot or not?

    Stand up if you love Charlton or sit down you're blocking my view?

    Palarse or Smallwall - who are our rivals?

    Nobody hates us - do we care?

    Green or Waggy?

    racist chanting - a victimless crime?

    Among my personal favourites are

    - the "live' thread from the courtroom in the Simon Jordan vs Dowie case
    - the Sebastian Sainsbury thread with interventions from the mystery man feeding us info, and the 'dodgy estate agent' getting upset
