Aussie, Aussie, Aussie

I’m sure we could do that instead of Allez, allez, allez.  Andrew Muir and Gerard Murphy were at the game on Sunday and by all accounts, the Aussies remain in pole position to buy Charlton. Apparently, the price has been agreed for a long time and is not affected by promotion and the Aussies have the money to do the deal.

They must have been impressed by the turn out for Doncaster and at Wembley, they can surely see and understand the potential. A mid table performance next year would have us with regular crowds of 15,000-18,000 with boycotters returning and enthusiasm high after Wembley.

It is really difficult for us mere mortals – Jim White included- to understand why the deal hasn’t been done. They’ve been at it for more than 12 months and must have enough due diligence information by now to fill a small country. Their perseverance is welcome and admirable but the takeover needs to happen NOW to capitalize on the momentum Lee and his team have created.

For heavens sake – get it done – bang the deal into the back of the net like Patrick Bauer did and we will all welcome you with open arms.

  1. If it’s the same Australians from reports 2 years ago they will be bad news and no difference. They stated a plan was to bring loads of young Aussies through. So no budget and more substandard players.

  2. I understand these Australians are involved with Essendon Australian Rules Club. Australian Rules is a strange game often referred to as ‘aerial ping-pong’. It bears no relation to football as all countries in the world understand it bar the rogue entities of Australia and USA. I am extremely worried, as Paul above states, that we will become inundated with mediocre Aussie try-hard wannabees. I might go so far as to say that if these people become the new owners we might even be better off with the current one!!! (Trust me, I live in Australia. Don’t ask why!)

  3. Like plenty of others I’ve no idea what the Australian’s plans are – do they even know themselves ? but what we do know is they had their chance and blew it. Forget ’em.

  4. It’s taken them what, over 12 months to submit a few bits of paperwork to the EFL and as far as we know they still haven’t done so, shambolic. Anyone but Roland…. not necessarily.
