Charlton Athletic - Calendar RemindersThe fixture list for the forthcoming season was released today and it will see the Addicks begin their return to the Championship on the road visiting Birmingham City at St Andrews.
You have to go all the way back to 2006 for the last time Charlton started the season on the road, a 3-1 defeat at Upton Park, hopefully Chris Powell's team will have more luck against the Blues.
Next up is a Tuesday night fixture against Chris Powell's former club Leicester at the Valley, and Hull follow the Foxes to the Valley four days later to finish off the August fixtures.
Powell will make sure his men are under no illusions and any hangover from the previous season's celebrations will have to be quickly forgotten. Chris will want to get all his signings in early so that they can gel in pre-season as the match against the playoff semi-finalists will not be a good time for mistakes.
The first game of the season seems a long way off, with Euro 2012 yet to finish and the Olympics yet to begin, but hopefully the weeks leading up to the season will pass quickly as the excitement builds at The Valley ahead of Charltons return to the Championship!
COME ON YOU REDS!!!
