Charlton Football Club part company with Iain Dowie

Charlton Football Club parting company with Iain Dowie has surprised me.

Although the team has not won many games this year and there is no doubt about the pressure Dowie and the club would be under at such an early stage of the season, I thought that Charlton Athletic Football club would have persevered and given the manager at least a full season and a shot at promotion next season (assuming the worse case scenario - is relegation that bad for Charlton Athletic?)

Looking back to Alex Fergusons early time at Machester United is a brief reminder of how close he came to losing his job when he became the Manchester United boss.

I am sure that Charlton would have done their homework in depth before hiring Dowie and knowing full well that any change in management is a tricky transition for any Football Club this decision comes as a shock.

Maybe Curbs has had a long enough break and wants his job back!!! Dowie goes back to Crystal Palace, Simone Jordan drops his court case against him and everyone carries on as if we've been stuck in some kind of Footballing wormhole!
