Charlton fans staged a mock funeral procession through the streets outside The Valley ahead of Sunday’s Championship game against Middlesbrough.

The march was part of further widespread protests over Belgian owner Roland Duchatelet’s shambolic running of the club as relegation to League One remains a distinct possibility (despite an upturn in form of late).

Similar to the scenes before Leeds’ game against Bolton last week, several hundred Charlton fans lined up and carried a mock casket around the ground to mark the untimely death of their football club…

Once under way, the game itself was also interrupted by further demonstrations, with an avalanche of beach balls being chucked onto the pitch causing first-half proceedings to by halted for almost four minutes…

Just to finally ram their aversions to Duchaletet home, many fans also staged a 74th-minute walk out during the 2-0 win over Boro – 74 being the total number of goals Charlton have conceded so far this season.

    I watched the first half of this game (dreadful viewing!) and felt for the Charlton fans but when they started blowing whistles when Middlesbrough where on the ball I lost respect for them. That’s not behaving the right way.

    The first time it happened Middlesbrough had the ball in the Charlton box and stopped playing at the sound of a whistle.
