  • Looks like a great piece of work, despite the misnomer ;) I shall be on to the museum for a copy right away.

  • Picked up my copy on the weekend. A mine of information , a great deal of research has been done. Well done Ian
  • Great for those of you who don't have The Valiant 500.  For those of us who do, can we get an Addendum?
  • I am sure thats tongue in cheek but this research by Ian is not an extention of the Valient 500.

    Each player entry is far more detailed than Colins original book and a photo for every player as opposed to just a few. 

    Fortunately the resources available now are far greater so as a three volume work, set out alphabetically, it will sit alongside or replaces the excellent Valiant 500 as opposed to being able to provide an addendum. 

    Can't wait to get my copy when I next get to the museum

    You can get the addendum for £30 
  • Yep that's fair comment, it was harsh and Colins book was/remains an essential part to any Charlton library. 

    I was being a little flippant/defensive to the suggestion of Ian's efforts amounting to an addendum when we both know the work that goes into writing. 
  • What an awesome piece of work by Ian, a must have for any true Addick if I may say so.
    I shall be getting one next time I am down in The Smoke. 🤗

  • The book is already proving indispensable, most noticeably when a player you want to look up is not an A to H. Thankfully Ian is getting well ahead with Vols 2 and 3. A Charlton classic, highly recommended.

    Just received my copy. It builds on the Valiant 500 and is much more detailed. Well done @killerjerrylee

    It has exceeded expectations. I love the detail about what players did after football and the quirky facts like ex Ipswich Keeper Richard Wright is Geoff Hammond's son in law and how other players with Charlton links had associations at other clubs. It appears that Jimmy Seed did appoint his favoured successor Benny Fenton as a manager. The problem is that it was at Millwall and not Charlton.

    Can't wait for the next two editions.
  • It’s a great book 
  • I'm currently pondering whether to buy it for my Dad for Father's Day, or if he'll end up getting too impatient and buy it for himself first.
  • On sale in the museum every Friday.

  • My daughter in law tried to obtain the book from the Museum but there is some hiccup apparently with regard to posting overseas.  She made another phone call and ended up talking to the author!  I hope she is successful getting the book (Fathers Day coming up) - really looking forward to reading it.
  • Museum has half a dozen copies in stock and we're open on Fridays 11 to 2.30

    We're also expecting a delivery of the new "The Year of the Robin" book any time now.
