2009 is busy doing it's warm down exercises and 2010 is coiled like a spring, ready to rush into play.
Only 12 months ago, on NYE 2008, Phil Parkinson was accepting the Charlton Athletic manager role, in a permanent capacity.
We suffered relegation but ultimately I think PP will be fairly pleased with his 12 months at the helm. Being in 2nd spot, at the halfway stage in the season is beyond most of our hopes back in August.
I'd like to wish everybody, Addicks and all others, a fantastic New Years Eve celebration and a healthy and happy 2010.
