We probably can’t be embarrassed by anything that goes on any longer at Charlton, but if geriatric Roland had a lawyer with half a brain – he would have inserted a standard anti embarrassment clause in the Sale & Purchase Agreement ( SPA) when he sold Charlton.
That commonly used clause is to stop people ‘flipping’ assets within a short time period for which they paid nothing or below market value. Typically, it requires the new owner to pay a significant amount of any flip proceeds to the previous owner.
Who knows what agreements are in place at Charlton, the place is amok with fraudsters, some of whom probably can’t read or understand a legal agreement and we are dealing with a previous owner with serious mental issues.
Oh how we long for some straightforward honest professionals to run the club again – where’s Roger Alwen when you need him?
