Charlton seek a little bit of history repeated as Karl Robinson aims to tap into fan power amid owner turmoil

Twenty-five years ago this week, Charlton Athletic returned to The Valley, after a depressing seven-year exile of nomadic ground-sharing, to beat Portsmouth 1-0 in the First Division amid a joyous party atmosphere. On Saturday, in one of those little quirks, they face Portsmouth again. It should be nothing but a cause for celebration, a celebration of what Charlton manager Karl Robinson calls one of the most “iconic moments in football history... what they did 25 years ago, I don’t think that will happen again”. It was, Robinson notes, a testimony to “what fan power can actually do”. For many Charlton supporters that comment touches a raw nerve given the controversial, unhappy ownership of the club by Belgian businessman Roland Duchatelet, who they are still trying to force out. Charlton struggled to recover from Premier League relegation in 2007 but the way the club has been run under Duchatelet has alienated many fans, even if on the field it has improved since Robinson became the eighth manager in three years in November 2016. “When I went into the club I knew how hard it was going to be,” Robinson says. “So I just tried to be me, stick to being the coach and say what I felt.” Karl Robinson (left) argues with Neil Ardley, manager of AFC Wimbledon Credit: GETTY IMAGES That included meeting fans “over a few pints” and navigating the line between hearing their concerns, being respectful of his employer and trying to turn the club around. Charlton are sixth in League One, in the play-off places, and clearly a return to the Championship is a priority. There has been a Robinson resurgence. But there remains an essential sadness that a club that has represented so much in terms of supporter power and a proud, fierce community spirit is in this way. The protest group CARD - the Coalition Against Roland Duchatelet – is working hard for change, although they may be disappointed to hear that Robinson does not think a takeover is imminent. “I think it can be distracting but I have been told that’s not the case and have to take that on face value,” Robinson says. “Listen, I do my job the best I can. I don’t get involved in the politics. It (the dissent) is not as loud but I don’t think it’s quietened down in terms of how people feel about it. I think CARD brought something out a month ago saying they respect what we are trying to do on the pitch and that, for us, was a tremendous testament. Charlton fans protest against owner Roland Duchatelet Credit: GETTY IMAGES “Whether they are part of CARD or not they are still fans and we just hope that one day we can come together and be a much stronger club. I don’t know what makes that happen. We just hope that we can put ourselves in a place where we are all one.” It cannot happen under Duchatelet. Robinson’s concerns are on the pitch but he is well aware of the importance of the Portsmouth match. “Our main objective is to get promoted but there are certain moments where people see the bigger picture and at every football club that is the fans, what they stand for and what they have been through,” he says. “Fundamentally, I want to make people proud of being a Charlton Athletic fan and when they look back at what they did, they should be so proud of themselves.” Food for thought over Newcastle takeover Mike Ashley and Amanda Staveley talked over her proposed takeover of Newcastle United at a London curry house on Wednesday night. As you do. That will give Newcastle fans heart, given the fear that the two parties remain so far apart in their valuation. But there is plenty of food for thought. The fear is the effect this is all having, not least with the growing realisation that if a deal is agreed it will not go through until after the January transfer window closes. Hopefully an outline deal can be secured before then because the club desperately needs a kick-start with new signings after an unhappy summer transfer period. Newcastle are in a dangerous limbo. They have two vital home games in five days: on Saturday they face a revitalised Leicester City, then they host Everton, led by former manager Sam Allardyce. A glance at the table shows how precariously they are pitched. They are 15th, five points outside the relegation places, but are on the slide having lost five of their last six matches, and won once in 10. Not so long ago they were over-achieving, now, while they talk, they are in danger of going under. Wilshere needs more game time Jack Wilshere started the week with an ice skating controversy after being photographed on a rink - not a good thing with his glass ankles – and then helped Arsenal glide past BATE Borisov in the Europa League. He even scored. Cue fresh debate over an England recall. But England do not play again until March. If Wilshere actually starts a Premier League game before then there may be an argument. “You could see he is ready,” Arsene Wenger said afterwards, having recently, unhelpfully, urged Gareth Southgate to pick Wilshere for England. So hopefully Wenger will now play him rather than talk about playing him. Wilshere is brilliantly talented, the best of his generation, but has just 65 minutes in the league so far this season. There is no argument. Awesome foursome Ahead of the Merseyside derby, Liverpool’s ‘Fab Four’ of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Philippe Coutinho and Sadio Mane have already scored 46 goals between them in all competitions this season. What is even more remarkable, though, is the frequency of goals the quartet score when they are on the pitch together: one every 23 minutes. Not ideal prep, Pep Manchester City flew to Ukraine on Monday for their Champions League tie away to Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday and stayed until Thursday afternoon. Given it was a ‘dead rubber’, given there is the Manchester derby this Sunday and given it was freezing cold, it did not feel like ideal preparation for such a big match.

Exclusive: Manchester United's FA Cup third-round match will not be televised, ending 13-year run 

Manchester United’s 13-year run of 58 televised FA Cup matches has come to an end, with their clash with Derby County next month a shock omission from the third-round games selected for broadcast. Telegraph Sport can also reveal that Brighton & Hove Albion and Crystal Palace will play the first competitive match in England in which video replays will be used to overturn refereeing decisions. The clubs’ third-round tie was chosen on Thursday to stage a live trial of so-called Video Assistant Referees (VARs) from the televised fixtures shown by the BBC and BT between January 5-8. Those will kick off with the Merseyside derby on the BBC on the night of Friday, January 5, which was deemed too high-profile a fixture to conduct English football’s first live VAR test. That will be followed on Saturday lunchtime by League One Fleetwood Town or non-league Hereford v Leicester City - Leicester famously bought Jamie Vardy from Fleetwood - again on the BBC. Brighton vs Palace will witness the first VAR used in an FA Cup match Credit: Getty Images BT Sport open that tea-time with Norwich City v Chelsea, while the Sunday games will be Shrewsbury v West Ham United (BBC) and Nottingham Forest v holders Arsenal (BT). BT will also show the history-making ‘M23 derby’ between Brighton and Palace the following evening. The last United cup match not to be shown live on television was the first of their defence of the trophy they won in 2004, a surprise goalless home draw against non-league Exeter City. Their non-selection next month follows a backlash last year against their mundane third-round home clash against Reading being picked ahead of National League Sutton United’s more romantic encounter with AFC Wimbledon. Sutton chairman Bruce Elliott said at the time: “I suppose it’s all down to viewing figures and the bottom line is more people are more likely to watch Man United than they are to watch Sutton United. But what happened to the romance of the FA Cup?” Liverpool's Merseyside clash with Everton will be televised Credit: Reuters Terrestrial broadcasters in particular have struggled to resist picking United’s FA Cup ties given there are few opportunities for them to show the club which regularly attracts the biggest UK TV audience. The Football Association announced its intention in March to use VARs in this season’s FA Cup from the third round onwards. Trials look set to be limited to televised games at Premier League grounds, which have the infrastructure necessary for the technology to be properly implemented. Only Liverpool v Everton and Brighton v Palace fulfilled that criteria from next month’s fixtures and the decision not to pick the former match may raise questions about the FA’s confidence in the system. The Telegraph revealed last year that secret video technology trials were being conducted during Premier League matches in preparation for the advent of VAR in England. The non-live experiments, which are ongoing, have been used to train referees and VARs with a view to them being ready for an anticipated change to the laws of the game in March and a full global rollout from the World Cup onwards. Live testing, meanwhile, is continuing in international friendly matches - the first in England was last month’s goalless draw against Germany at Wembley - and in competitions signed up to the trials. That includes in this season’s Bundesliga, where the use of VARs has been mired in controversy. Modern heroes: Who has done most for your club in the last 20 years? Hellmut Krug, the former international referee appointed to oversee the system, was sidelined in October after being accused of unduly influencing two VAR penalty decisions in Schalke’s 1-1 draw with Wolfsburg. He denied having done so. The only incidents eligible to be overturned by video review under a protocol laid down by the International Football Association Board are goals, penalties, straight red cards and cases of mistaken identity.

Twitter Reaction to FA Cup Draw With Fans Adamant Manchester United Will Be On TV... Again

​Manchester United have something of a legendary FA Cup streak going on at the moment, with their last 58 games being televised, regardless of their opposition or stage of the tournament. This notion has irked football fans, who think this streak should be broken in favour of more interesting games in the recent draw, including the Merseyside derby, Brighton vs Crystal Palace or Tottenham vs AFC Wimbledon.

FA Cup third-round draw in full: Liverpool v Everton and Brighton v Crystal Palace the stand-out ties

The draw for the third round of the FA Cup has produced a series of major derbies, including a first match at this stage of the competition since 1932 between Liverpool and Everton. Jurgen Klopp and Sam Allardyce’s teams were paired together during Monday night’s draw, as were Premier League rivals Crystal Palace and Brighton and Hove Albion. North-East neighbours Sunderland and Middlesbrough, who have both been relegated in recent years to the Championship, were also drawn together. Arsenal, who are attempting to win the trophy for a fourth time in five years, will begin their defence at Nottingham Forest. Other especially eye-catching fixtures include AFC Wimbledon’s return to Wembley in the FA Cup some 30 years on from their memorable triumph in 1988 to face Tottenham Hotspur.  Luton Town, now of League Two and the FA Cup finalists in 1959, also have glamorous away Premier League opponents in Newcastle United. Premier League leaders Manchester City have a tricky home tie against Sean Dyche’s Burnley, while Manchester United host Derby County and Chelsea are away at Norwich City. Who will be lifting the FA Cup come what May? Credit: Getty Images  Hereford, who are in the seventh tier of the football pyramid, will face 2016 Premier League champions Leicester City if they manage to overcome Fleetwood in their second-round replay. Four non-league sides were involved in the draw, which was conducted by Glenn Hoddle and Jermain Jenas ahead of the second-round match between Slough Town and Rochdale, but none are currently guaranteed a place in the third round. National League club AFC Fylde will have the opportunity to face Premier League opposition in Bournemouth if they beat Wigan Athletic in their replay. Woking, who also play in the fifth tier of the pyramid, have the chance to play at Villa Park against Aston Villa if they beat Peterborough in their replay. The ties will take place on Jan 5-7, with timings dependent on which matches are selected for live screening by BBC and BT Sport. There was criticism last year that broadcasters often opted to show big Premier League clubs rather than the more romantic ties, such as the third-round fixture between non-league Sutton United and AFC Wimbledon. Sutton did eventually make it to a televised tie against Arsenal in the fifth round. Arsenal subsequently beat Manchester City and Chelsea in the semi-final and final to win what was a record 13th FA Cup.

Hereford v Newcastle? Wrexham v Arsenal? Sutton v Coventry? Yep, the BBC's montage has them all.  6:28PM An English institution Evening all, Welcome to our coverage of one of the great days in the English sporting calendar. Yes we are just minutes away from seeing which lower-league teams will get a chance to lose 3-0 against the second string of one of the Premier League's leading lights. For these part-time plumbers and postmen, the opportunity to test themselves against Mohamed Elneny and Matteo Darmian is just a draw of a ball away. There is also the opportunity to be patronised the hell out of by BBC commentators and possibly go down in football folklore for ever more. Think Ronny Radford scoring for Hereford against Newcastle, Mickey Thomas for Wrexham against Arsenal, er Nigel Jemson for Shrewsbury against Everton.  The third round stage is of course when all the Premier League and Championship teams join the competition, and alongside them will be four non-league teams in the pot - AFC Fylde, Hereford, Slough and Woking. Arsenal are the current FA Cup holders Credit: AP Woking you may recall have some pedigree in this competition. In January 1991 the Surrey-based side pulled off one of the great FA Cup shocks when as a Conference team they knocked out second-tier outfit West Brom 4-2 at the Hawthorns. They were then beaten 1-0 by top-flight side Everton in the fourth round.     More recently, Woking reached the third round in 1997 and took Premier League side Coventry to a replay which they narrowly lost 2-1. But enough about Woking. Tonight's draw gets under way at around 7pm, and precedes the second round match between seventh-tier Slough Town and League One side Rochdale.  Here are the ball numbers in full: Bournemouth Arsenal Aston Villa Barnsley Birmingham City Bolton Brentford Brighton Bristol City Burnley Burton Albion Cardiff City Chelsea Crystal Palace Derby County Everton Fulham  Huddersfield Hull City Ipswich Town Leeds United Leicester Liverpool Manchester City Manchester United Middlesbrough Millwall Newcastle Norwich City Nottingham Forest Preston North End QPR Reading Sheffield United Sheffield Wednesday Southampton Stoke  Sunderland Swansea Tottenham Watford West Brom West Ham Wolves Woking or Peterborough MK Dons Newport County Wycombe Wanderers Port Vale/Yeovil Shrewsbury Town Doncaster Rovers Slough Town or Rochdale AFC Wimbledon Stevenage Mansfield Town Luton Town Bradford City Blackburn/Crewe AFC Fylde or Wigan Gillingham or Carlisle Notts County Forest Green Rovers or Exeter City Fleetwood Town or Hereford Coventry City

FA Cup third-round draw in full: Liverpool v Everton and Brighton v Crystal Palace the stand-out ties

The draw for the third round of the FA Cup has produced a series of major derbies, including a first match at this stage of the competition since 1932 between Liverpool and Everton. Jurgen Klopp and Sam Allardyce’s teams were paired together during Monday night’s draw, as were Premier League rivals Crystal Palace and Brighton and Hove Albion. North-East neighbours Sunderland and Middlesbrough, who have both been relegated in recent years to the Championship, were also drawn together. Arsenal, who are attempting to win the trophy for a fourth time in five years, will begin their defence at Nottingham Forest. Other especially eye-catching fixtures include AFC Wimbledon’s return to Wembley in the FA Cup some 30 years on from their memorable triumph in 1988 to face Tottenham Hotspur.  Luton Town, now of League Two and the FA Cup finalists in 1959, also have glamorous away Premier League opponents in Newcastle United. Premier League leaders Manchester City have a tricky home tie against Sean Dyche’s Burnley, while Manchester United host Derby County and Chelsea are away at Norwich City. Who will be lifting the FA Cup come what May? Credit: Getty Images  Hereford, who are in the seventh tier of the football pyramid, will face 2016 Premier League champions Leicester City if they manage to overcome Fleetwood in their second-round replay. Four non-league sides were involved in the draw, which was conducted by Glenn Hoddle and Jermain Jenas ahead of the second-round match between Slough Town and Rochdale, but none are currently guaranteed a place in the third round. National League club AFC Fylde will have the opportunity to face Premier League opposition in Bournemouth if they beat Wigan Athletic in their replay. Woking, who also play in the fifth tier of the pyramid, have the chance to play at Villa Park against Aston Villa if they beat Peterborough in their replay. The ties will take place on Jan 5-7, with timings dependent on which matches are selected for live screening by BBC and BT Sport. There was criticism last year that broadcasters often opted to show big Premier League clubs rather than the more romantic ties, such as the third-round fixture between non-league Sutton United and AFC Wimbledon. Sutton did eventually make it to a televised tie against Arsenal in the fifth round. Arsenal subsequently beat Manchester City and Chelsea in the semi-final and final to win what was a record 13th FA Cup.

Hereford v Newcastle? Wrexham v Arsenal? Sutton v Coventry? Yep, the BBC's montage has them all.  6:28PM An English institution Evening all, Welcome to our coverage of one of the great days in the English sporting calendar. Yes we are just minutes away from seeing which lower-league teams will get a chance to lose 3-0 against the second string of one of the Premier League's leading lights. For these part-time plumbers and postmen, the opportunity to test themselves against Mohamed Elneny and Matteo Darmian is just a draw of a ball away. There is also the opportunity to be patronised the hell out of by BBC commentators and possibly go down in football folklore for ever more. Think Ronny Radford scoring for Hereford against Newcastle, Mickey Thomas for Wrexham against Arsenal, er Nigel Jemson for Shrewsbury against Everton.  The third round stage is of course when all the Premier League and Championship teams join the competition, and alongside them will be four non-league teams in the pot - AFC Fylde, Hereford, Slough and Woking. Arsenal are the current FA Cup holders Credit: AP Woking you may recall have some pedigree in this competition. In January 1991 the Surrey-based side pulled off one of the great FA Cup shocks when as a Conference team they knocked out second-tier outfit West Brom 4-2 at the Hawthorns. They were then beaten 1-0 by top-flight side Everton in the fourth round.     More recently, Woking reached the third round in 1997 and took Premier League side Coventry to a replay which they narrowly lost 2-1. But enough about Woking. Tonight's draw gets under way at around 7pm, and precedes the second round match between seventh-tier Slough Town and League One side Rochdale.  Here are the ball numbers in full: Bournemouth Arsenal Aston Villa Barnsley Birmingham City Bolton Brentford Brighton Bristol City Burnley Burton Albion Cardiff City Chelsea Crystal Palace Derby County Everton Fulham  Huddersfield Hull City Ipswich Town Leeds United Leicester Liverpool Manchester City Manchester United Middlesbrough Millwall Newcastle Norwich City Nottingham Forest Preston North End QPR Reading Sheffield United Sheffield Wednesday Southampton Stoke  Sunderland Swansea Tottenham Watford West Brom West Ham Wolves Woking or Peterborough MK Dons Newport County Wycombe Wanderers Port Vale/Yeovil Shrewsbury Town Doncaster Rovers Slough Town or Rochdale AFC Wimbledon Stevenage Mansfield Town Luton Town Bradford City Blackburn/Crewe AFC Fylde or Wigan Gillingham or Carlisle Notts County Forest Green Rovers or Exeter City Fleetwood Town or Hereford Coventry City
