Charlton Team of the Decade

It has been quite a 10 years for the Addicks, so as the decade draw to an end we asked Valley Pass commentators Terry Smith and Greg Stubley for their best Charlton XIs.

Take a look below. Don't agree? Send us your team to

Terry Smith (4-4-2)

Gk: Dillon Phillips – Dillon is one of our own. He came in and out a few times but never gave up and was a big part of our late push last season. He probably should have started sooner than he did but he’s doing a great job now. 

RB: Chris Solly – Solid, dependable for 10 years.

CB: Joe Gomez – Joe was the best player that played for us. What was great is that we got a chance to see him early and grow. It is brilliant what he has gone on to achieve.

CB: Jason Pearce – He’s a natural captain and solid centre half. I always like to have one ball-winning centre half and one footballing one and there aren’t many better ball-winners than Jason Pearce.

LB: Rhyos Wiggins – A very, very good left back whose career was sadly cut short by injury.

RM: Johan Berg Gudmundsson – An incredibly talented player who was very good for us and has gone on to have a good Premier League career.

CM: Johnnie Jackson – How could he not be included in this team?

CM: Dale Stephens – A player with class on the ball and not afraid of a tackle. 

LM: Ademola Lookman – Pace, talent, ability to score goals and he tracked back. A pleasure to watch during his time at Charlton.

St: Yann Kermorgant – He put his body on the line and a was a proven goalscorer, which he continued to show after he left us.

St: Lyle Taylor – He scores poacher’s goals, can create for himself and can create for others. Some of his assists last season were outstanding. 

Greg Stubley (4-4-2)

Gk: Ben Hamer – He was very good for us and at times had unbelievable spells. I remember one game against Sheffield Wednesday where he was just incredible. 

RB: Chris Solly – A back-to-back Charlton Player Of The Year, who has been consistently good for the club throughout the decade. 

CB: Michael Morrison – I always felt Michael was one of the underrated players of the Chris Powell era. He was a dependable defender and also contributed goals. 

CB: Patrick Bauer – Patrick gave me the best moment of my life in the 94th minute at Wembley. Last season he showed his value and was an integral part of a very strong defence. 

LB: Rhyos Wiggins – He would have played in Premier League if not for injury. At his peak one of the best left backs I’ve seen.

RM: Johan Berg Gudmundsson – One of our most talented players. I think he would have done really well under Lee Bowyer, as Bowyer’s style would have suited him.

CM: Johnnie Jackson – As Terry said, an obvious choice.

CM: Dale Stephens – An incredible passer on his day. I think he is the player that after watching his Charlton debut I was most excited by. I felt he actually played his best football for us in the Championship. 

LM: Ademola Lookman – He did it in the Championship and League One. He was the most exciting player of the decade. I’ll always remember him outplaying Bruno against Brighton, who was selected as the best right back in the Championship that year. 

St: Yann Kermorgant – The Charlton Player of the Decade. You can see his class by what he did not just with us but at the other teams he played for. 

St: Lyle Taylor – He took us up another level. We were on alright promotion chasing team and he took us to a promotion team. You miss him when he’s not there. He does a bit of everything and his hold up play is very good.
