Season 2009/10 found Charlton Athletic in the third tier of English football for the first time in 28 years. And it looked as if their stay would be brief when they opened their campaign with six succesive victories, a welcome reversal of fortunes after two relegations in three seasons. Manager Phil Parkinson had been unable to plan because of summer uncertainty about the club s financial situation, but he was eventually boosted by the retention of players such as Nicky Bailey, Therry Racon, Kelly Youga and Jose Semedo, and the signing of the experienced Christian Dailly. Although they could not maintain their blistering early pace, the Addicks remained in first or second place until the turn of the year. They would win exactly half of their 46 League matches and draw another 15. But the team slipped into third spot during a spell of severe weather at the start of 2010 and never regained an automatic promotion position, despite briefly threatening to do so on the final day of the normal season, when an unlikely combination of three different scorelines took them tantalisingly close to success. They were left to take on Swindon Town in the play-offs and went out in the heartbreaking drama of a semi-final penalty shoot-out at The Valley, despite having reversed a 2-1 first-leg deficit. The club and its supporters were left crestfallen, but when the dust had settled they could still look back on a memorable season, including thrilling matches against Leeds United and Norwich City, who claimed the automatic promotion places, and Swindon, who would go on to lose the play-off final at Wembley. This DVD brings together the highs and lows of the season and includes all 71 League goals, plus those from the play-offs, as well as brief cup action. It also features an exclusive interview with boss Parkinson reflecting on the team s fortunes during the campaign.
