Last Sunday saw Lee Bowyer reach the two-year milestone in the Charlton hot-seat.

On March 22, 2018, Karl Robinson stepped down and Bowyer took the reins at The Valley on a temporary basis.

By the end of that season, the Caretaker Manager had taken the Addicks to the brink of promotion from League One via the play-offs, tumbling to Shrewsbury Town in the semi-finals.

The club’s then owner, Roland Duchatelet, had seen enough in those ten league games which included six wins and two draws, to give Bowyer the job permanently, and he didn’t disappoint.

Leading the club to an unforgettable promotion campaign which climaxed with Patrick Bauer’s 94th minute winner at Wembley, Bowyer is already a club legend regardless of what lay in store this season.

Bowyer’s managerial career is still in its infancy but it’s safe to say he’s been through his fair share of emotions at the helm, and that’s before off-field dramas are discussed.

With 24-months of highs and lows in SE7, we spoke to Charlton super-fan, Kieron Keogh of Vital Charlton, to give us a rundown of his three-favourite Addicks matches under Bowyer.

In third:

Charlton 1 Leeds United 0   28/10/19

Bonne 32’

 “There was just something about that game.

“When we got promoted, other than Millwall, this was the game you look out for.

“A huge club coming to The Valley, and with the Lee Bowyer connection as well.

“It wasn’t a classic, and they peppered us, but beating a team like Leeds after coming up from League One, it was massive.

“Not just because it was a huge scalp, but because I think that was the day that both Charlton players and fans finally realised and believed they belonged and could compete at this level.

“That was because of Bowyer.”

In Second:

Charlton 2 Doncaster 3 AET (Agg 4-4 – Charlton win 4-3 on penalties) 17/5/19

Bielik 2’, Pratley 101’        Rowe 11’, Butler 88’, Marquis 101’

“Friday night, under the lights with a packed Valley, I get goosebumps thinking of that evening.

“Seeing a full house and everyone all standing up and singing, it’s something I didn’t think we’d see for a long time.

“That’s because of Bowyer.

“He was here when he was younger, he knows the club, and now it’s like what it was in the 90s, he bought that togetherness, like what was there that evening.

“Then there’s the game itself, the way it all panned out, WOW!

“Going 3-1 up within the first few minutes, then the way it unravelled.

“All the emotions coming together, it was amazing how it unfolded.

“We won it on penalties, but the moment that stands out for me was Pratley’s goal, the relief, excitement, noise, emotions, the celebration! Oh wow. I won’t forget that.

“You couldn’t help but run on to the pitch after the penalties, emotionally drained, I’ve never experienced anything like that, until …..”

In first, it had to be:

Charlton 2 Sunderland 1    26/5/19

Purrington 35’, Bauer 90+4’       Sarr (OG) 5’

“I started early, around 10am I went to the Green Man pub, everyone’s there singing, getting into the mood.

“I was a little reserved on the day because of the pressure.

“It was all or nothing.

“Reality set in when Naby scored the own goal, it almost felt like ‘we’ve gone this far and now we’ll go downhill, we’re Charlton!’

“We went in at the break level and Bowyer took Naby off for Jason Pearce, I think that won us the game.

“We needed a leader, he restored order and Sunderland didn’t really have a sniff at goal second half.

“Bowyer made the right decision bringing him on.

“When Pat scored, I was crying, as I’m sure loads of fans were.

“Definitely the most important game as a Charlton fan for me, I was too young to go to the 98’ play-off final, it felt like I was there I’ve watched it so many times, but this play-off final was the most important.

“After the trouble with the owner, for Bowyer to do what he did that season, it’s quite incredible.

“He knows Charlton inside out, who knows where the club would be without him.

“Probably on its way to League Two with the way we were going.

“He’s taking us in the right direction and it’s great having someone lie him in charge.

“Fans feel they have the right man steering the ship.”
