I have just read Wynn Grants ( an excellent blog) Addicks Championship Diary piece about CAFC supporters ‘ Its being so miserable makes me happy’
Although I am always 100% behind the team when I attend matches , never have I or would I boo the team or players- I guess you could count me in the pessimists corner when it comes to the current situation at the club .
It seems to me that there are too many people who are accepting of the – we’re only Charlton, we’ve been generally useless since the war ( which we have) – we should count ourselves lucky to have an absent owner ( the 2nd on the trot) – at least we aren’t Coventry or Leeds or another basket case.
I don’t want to wait another 3 or 4 years while we try and bed in the youngsters and the Standard Liege reserves – possibly go back to League 1 – before Roland’s great ( as yet vague and uncommunicated) plan takes us back to the Premier League. Its all very well saying that people shouldn’t have to lose money when running a football club . That is , of course, correct and a admirable objective , but in reality football owners always lose money and if Roland turns out to be the only one who doesn’t , its going to be a pretty difficult ride for the supporters over the next few years
We should be a major London club – we have a huge catchment area and we need owners who have the right level of ambition for the club.
We should all be demanding that and if Roland can’t deliver , then tell him to move over and get someone else in who shares our vision.
There is no reason at all why we shouldn’t be competing at the top end of the Premiership.
