Kafkaesque Charlton Athletic

Bet you wouldn’t have seen that headline coming – even I had to look it up to make sure I had it in context.

Here is the definition. ”Kafka’s work is characterized by nightmarish settings in which characters are crushed by nonsensical, blind authority. Hence, the word Kafkaesque is often applied to bizarre and impersonal situations where the individual feels powerless to understand or control what is happening.”. ……………Not far off eh ?

We now have a new owning consortium – a consortium is a strange new definition of only one person, Paul Elliott, who appears to have no on-line presence indicating any degree of business success or wealth. Pretty much all his previous Directorships have been on small property companies many of which have simply disappeared. He apparently paid May’s wages and is promising to keep paying the £400-500k a month even though he is apparently ”involved in this as a business venture” I’m only guessing but I’d be very surprised if it’s actually his money ?

I’ve been running businesses now for 30 years and I’ve never been able to sniff out a business venture yet that screamed opportunity out of losing £10m a year without any assets, hardly any revenue and little prospect of improvement combined with a hostile customer, sorry fanbase. Good luck with that job Paul.

The situation at Charlton is bizzare, unfathomable, incredible – Kafkaesque in the extreme.

  1. My guess is that this is another front man for Tahnoon Nimer who cannot at present be a Public figure in regard to Charlton or our dear friend Southall will reappear. I feel that it may be Tahnoon Nimer providing the funds at this stage. Let’s just hope that the “consortium” manage to reach agreement with Peter Varney and Andrew Barclay who seem to understand the full picture and know what is required to get the Club back in a healthy position even if there is not too much investment in new players at first. I always warned people around me that they should be careful in wishing for new owners as we could find ourselves in a worse position than under RD and until now that has been the case.

  2. Who cares if Mr Elliott aint got a presence not all busness men or women want the ubris. King Roland didn’t want it either so good for im, Less all elp our gaff take on Sarfall in court, the sooner e’s gawn the better.
