Although I am very critical of the current regime , I think we should stop protesting now and just support the team. I don’t think we should waive banners , stage protests or boycott matches. On the last point , many supporters are already boycotting matches , so I don’t think the rest of us giving up has any merit.
The current owner, CEO and manager are all useless incompetents , but most of all we are Charlton fans and it will be a disaster for us ( not them) if we go down this year .
We all know how difficult it is to get out of Division 3 , look at Sheffield United if you need any confirmation. I guess you could argue that we are just delaying the inevitable – the bookies have us as favourites to go down every year under this ownership and the CEO & owner have been trying hard to get us relegated ever since they arrived , but I don’t think that’s a good reason for us to give up too. Bearing in mind how totally clueless they are about English football , do you think that there is any chance at all that they will make the right decisions about management and players in Division 3 ?
The match against Cardiff a couple of seasons ago stood out for me when the crowd and Johnnie Jackson together ground out the 5-4 result . The crowd support was magnificent . In that sense I was moved by what Michael O Neil said last night on SPOTY about the support the crowd give to the Northern Ireland team, even though they have limited talent to work with .
We know we haven’t got the best team or players , but if they cock it up , misplace a pass , shoot into the sidenetting , miss a header , and make other mistakes , we need to stop any booing , jeering or moaning and really roar them on , shout scream and encourage them in every way to give everything they have over the next few games . We need them to run through brick walls for the club and they need to know that we are behind them.
Anyway, that’s what I think !!
COYA and a very happy Xmas and New Year to all Charlton supporters everywhere – thanks for reading and commenting on my rambles this year.
