    Not sure of it being opened up online for anyone, but at least Millwall can't hilariously choose Christian Dailly or something.

    I saw this. I found the 1951-1981 a tough category to choose from.

    Was surprised with the choices of who to vote for for the 1981 - Present Day though. Got nothing against Steve Gritt at all (met him a few times, nice guy and good footballer for us), but he wouldn't have been top of my list of a top three place for a nominee in that category.

    Personally i think they should have had 5 nominees for each era.

    To be honest, I don't see the point of including Sam. He's such an established club icon that the pre-50's vote is a waste of time because he's got it sewn up already. Wouldn't it have made sense to name him as the first (inaugural?) inductee, then let people choose between Welsh, Vaughan and AN Other?
    I dunno. I suppose it doesn't matter really as all our favourites will get in eventually!

    Bartram, Killer, Mendonca.
    Bartram nailed on - the real Charlton legend.
    Hales was my hero, loved him.
    Mendonca took us from being a small club to a big club with one hatrick.
    In 1986 we won promotion playing at Selhurst. That was unthinkable at the time and all of us who had supported Charlton through the 60's and 70's had come to terms with the fact we might always be a small club. To win promotion playing every game away from home was a remarkable feat. However, no player from that team is ever mentioned. It was a real team effort with no heroes or outstanding individuals. So, special mention for Rob Lee. Maybe we should have 1981 - 1996 and then 1996 - present day.

    bartram peacock kinsella. The other 6 will get in in the next fewe years, no doubt about it. I reckon managers should also be in - seed, curbs, lawrence for starters?

    Three stands available to name, I can't imagine Mendonca (or Kinsella) even getting considered for a stand if there were 5 of them (in my opinion).

    Too many people ahead of them.

    Well done our very own Beds Addicks for reviving the idea and to Ian Wallis and the Fans Forum for making it happen.

    How on earth doesn't Stuart Leary get mentioned...in my opinion (as well as Colin Cameron and most others; as can be witnessed in The Valiant 500 vote at the rear of the book)) the greatest player ever to have worn a Charlton shirt.

    From having more than a few discussions with Ian about this I think he wanted the fans to choose rather than people, worthy though they would be, being automatically entered into the Hall of Fame.

    The debate about him or him or why not him is all part of it IMHO. "Cos if you know your history" and all that.

    And each year there will be another batch of players to vote for and discuss. Sounds, you'll need to bend Ian's ear about Leary at the next Bromley meeting but my dad wasn't such a big fan of Stuart. Felt Firmani, Jeppson and Vaughan were all better and more team players but hey, that's the fun and the point of all this.
