During the 2006–07 English football season, Charlton Athletic competed in the FA Premier League.

Season summary[edit]

Following Alan Curbishley's resignation after 10 years in charge of Charlton, Northern Irishman Iain Dowie was snared from South London rivals Crystal Palace, but, despite being given more money to spend in the transfer market than any other previous Charlton manager, the club were in the relegation zone for most of his tenure and he was sacked in November. First-team coach Les Reed stepped into the breach, but also proved unsuitable for the job and was in turn replaced by former West Ham United manager Alan Pardew. Pardew was unable to stop the rot and Charlton were relegated from the Premier League after seven consecutive seasons in the top flight, where they had come close to European qualification on several occasions.

Kit[edit]

Charlton retained their kit manufacturing deal with Spanish apparel manufacturers Joma, who produced a new kit for the season. The kit sponsorship deal with Spanish real estate company Llanera.
