No report on the official club website yet. Burnley are a decent enough side but we are now plummeting towards League One and I see absolutely of way of swerving this fate.
Based on my own goal difference rule (it rarely lies, best goal difference wins the league, worst doesn't) we are well and truly down shit creek without a paddle about.
You can't actually sack an interim coach can you? Because they are temporary anyway aren't they? (That's quite convenient isn't it?).
I've seen Charlton sides fail before. Be relegated. And lose by worst margins than 4-0. But still kept coming back for more. The current incarnation of Charlton, well, it's just not Charlton. The sterilisation that has been perpetrated by the Belgium mafia is nothing short of disgusting and shows a complete misunderstanding of the beautiful game.
Poor decisions, a lack of intelligent investment. Duchalet is a rich man. I wouldn't expect anyone with an ounce of common sense to come in and do to Charlton what various foreigners with more money than sense have done to the Chelsea's, Man Cities and PSG's of the world. However, to come and think that you will be able to make money out of running a football club as a profitable business is ludicrous. It really is. The thing that makes you money in football is a good brand coupled with success. It is actually as simple as that. There are few clubs inside the premier league AND the other biggest leagues in the world that actually turn a profit. A lot of the biggest clubs in the world make modest losses. That's just the way it works.
For the deluded idiot to actually believe his model will work shows him to be the egotist he really is. In South London we would refer to him as a bit of a mug! It really isn't about results, it's about the nature of the results. I've always regarded Belgium's food as being rather famously bland. He's made us the footballing equivalent. I love the game and everything Charlton used to stand for. I honestly believe that if things continue as they have been Welling United may well find the need to redevelop their ground as more and more Addicks look for a local club they can identify with. (Let's face it, no one walking away from the Valley is going to swell the other local fl72 grounds).
Perhaps there's the next protest? All defecting for one game to whatever local none league club of your choice.
We've had Franchise FC up in Milton Keynes. Now we are officially introduced to Disenfranchised Apathetic FC.
You've ruined my weekends Roland. Please piss off soon.
