Anything is possible after Edwards’ move to Watford. And clearly he’s going to be linked as he’s done well here and is an ex Athletic player.

Personally, I think (hope) he wants to see how far he can take us in L1. But, as always, money talks and if Charlton did want him, he’d probably go.

According to a Charlton fan on the football forum, the local journo has said Taylor is under consideration for the job.

Their last two appointments have been terrible - the new(ish) owner needs to get the next one right or his credibility will go down the toilet.

I think Warburton would be a good choice for Charlton but it looks like he is going to Birmingham.
A lot depends on how the club is being run. The takeover at Charlton wasn't particularly smooth and the current guy in charge, Sandgaard, owns the club while the despised former owner Roland Duchatelet still owns the ground and training ground I think.

I've also seen a few quotes from Sandgaard which make him sound like a total chancer:

thomas sandgaard said:
“We have built a recruitement system that is so much better. Before that it was a good old agent calling up and telling you someone is a good lad and that’s what you go by. That’s what it was when I took it over.

“There are better facilities now at the training ground. We already have our medical and sports science team and I’m demanding next season that our training has to have a minimum of 10 per cent more intensity, so we train at a minimum level we see in the Championship. It’s all around we’re improving.
Given the current ownership at Birmingham, and the name in the frame to take over, I can still see Charlton having better potential as a gig in the short term than the former - which is presumably why Bowyer is on the bookies list @ramone posted. Given Warburton's background I assume he will do the required due diligence on wherever he is headed next though, so I'm probably wrong.

I know we all want him to stay and keep going in L1.
However my advice would be don’t make the same mistakes as Tisdale when he was heavily wanted.
He never left and now can’t even get a job at Ted Bakers.

Make the most of it whilst your stock is high.
And if he does leave then good luck to him.
He will leave a hero, rather than hated by half the fans.
