During the 1998–99 English football season, Charlton Athletic competed in the FA Premier League (known as the FA Carling Premiership for sponsorship reasons).

Season summary[edit]

Back in the top flight after an eight-year exile, Charlton Athletic made a good start to the Premiership campaign and Alan Curbishley was voted Manager of the Month for August. Their form soon dipped, but they were never completely outclassed by the rest of the Premiership sides. In the end, they were the last team to make the drop following a late revival by Southampton.[1] But Curbishley's job was still safe, as the board had every confidence in his ability to regain a hard-earned place among the elite for the Addicks.
