Been bugging me today, for some reason.
I've got a vague memory of Charlton playing home games at Upton Park at one time. Am I imagining this, or did it really happen?

Yes, they did play there for a while after they left Selhurst I think and just b4 they went back to the Valley.

Did we have a season's break between Charlton leaving and Wimbledon arriving?

Yes - interestingly our best-ever season......

Although the reserves used to play their home games at Selhurst that season on Monday nights as I recall...
