Charlton Athletic have a bit of a break now until they are back in league action and Lee Bowyer is bound to be hoping by the time the next game comes around his squad is looking stronger.
Some injuries are starting to dissipate now and with a week left in the window and new ownership in place, the plan will be to really strengthen this squad and get away from those sides scrapping below them.
Certainly, the belief that they can do that will be there for now given the start they made to this season when at full-strength and positive news off of the field is bound to add to the feeling they’re heading in the right direction.
Indeed, Lee Bowyer signed a new contract earlier this week – prior to the draw with Fulham – and that has given Addicks fans something to smile about.
Matt Southall, too, has reflected on the news via social media since:
Probably the best piece of business the club will do this window. So pleased Lee has signed his new deal because this is the beginning of an amazing journey for Charlton fans #COYR #cafc pic.twitter.com/6r6G1I9b2x

And fans have lapped it up. Let’s see what they have said:
Promises and commitments declared are refreshing, and the first one of getting Lee Bowyer tied down is ticked off that list!
Onwards and upwards.

Fantastic stuff Matt! Would love to see Jonny Williams get a contract next. Loyalty should always be rewarded 🧙♂️ 🏴 🤝

100% Agree. Suggestion. Any chance after the window, once or twice a week, you can do a 30 min q&a or something like that? Similar to Darragh MacAnthony. It's what set him and hopefully you apart from EVERY other chairman in football. Actually reply to some cafc fans one to one
