One of my claims to fame is that Alan Curbishley's successor as manager of the Addicks, Iain Dowie was nicknamed Monica, by me.
And now he's gone. That's all I know at midnight there and seven in the morning here, except it can't have helped that Charlton are rooted to the bottom of the Premiership having won only 2 out of 12 matches so far. Mind you, it does look as if we're going to be in the semi-finals of the once-it-was-called League Cup.
No manager of the club, or any club, has lasted for so short a time, and it's not as if Monica had lost the faith of the fans. So we'll have to wait for a few hours for the reasons why. I sympathise with the man though; believe me, I do know what it's like to lose a paid position before the end of the season.
I hope he doesn't have to wait for his pay-off as long as me.
