I am a massive fan of Lee Bowyer, he is straightforward, honest, passionate, talented but above all he’s Charlton. He was excellent today in his post match interview – a real credit to the club and himself.
It normally takes us 3 years to get out of this division ( the last 2 occasions) and if we add a couple of goalscorers to this squad even if we lose the loan players and Konsa, we will go up next season.
The reason we aren’t going up this year is because we haven’t really got anyone who can score a goal. We’ve now played the last 270 minutes without scoring which probably tells you everything you needed to know. I like big Josh but he probably isn’t good enough and Ajose definitely isn’t. Mavididi and Kaikai have been very disappointing. Letting KHG go on loan to Crawley was a mistake, but at the time we probably didn’t realise it. Novak and Watt were never going to get us anywhere.
The new owners need to make sure we keep Lee & JJ and then building a team around the core of Page, Dijksteel, Pearce, Baeur, JFC, Aribo, Fosu, Clarke and maybe Reeves and Marshall if they pull their fingers out. It would be great if we could keep Amos too. If you add a couple of proper decent goalscorers plus the recall of KHG, then we will definitely get promoted.
From the fans perspective, probably the best thing to come out of staying in the 3rd division is that our idiotic geriatric useless clueless incompetent owner will disappear back to the provincial backwater of Belgium from whence he came.
The best decision in my mind for the new owners whoever they might be would be to retain Lee Bowyer as the manager.
Let us pray for a quick deal now.
Have a lovely summer everyone and thanks for reading my nonsense and particularly those of you who make comments which I greatly appreciate.
Keep the faith , we will be back.
