By the way, its not the Paul Elliott, our much admired former player, its another not so well known outside Didsbury, less successful Paul Elliott who has agreed to accept the role of Patsy for Mr Nimer and Mr Farnell, probably in return for a free golf club subscription next year.
In the merry go round of ownership at Charlton, Tahnoon Nimer has neatly passed his ownership of the club from his right trouser pocket to his left trouser pocket with the transfer of ownership to his lawyer, Chris Farnell and a mate of Farnell’s, called Paul Elliott who Farnell knows either from the golf club or his local boozer.
This transaction has been effected to trigger the drag along provisions of the Shareholders Agreement in ESI so that Matt – 2 Range Rovers -Southall receives 35% of bugger all which was the transaction price paid by Farnell and Elliott.
Having moved Southall out of the way, this frees up Nimer & Farnell with their temporary mate, Paul Elliott ”the patsy”, to move to the next stage which is to try to sell the football club to someone who actually has some money so that they can walk away with a couple of hundred thousand.
The hope is that all of this can be achieved before June payroll comes around. If there is anything at all valuable at Sparrows Lane or The Valley, Bowyer and co should bring in their cordless drills to work and fix it to the wall.
The locusts remain in charge at Charlton.
