The EFL statement issued last night was either written by a 12 year old or a moron or possibly both. According to the EFL website there are 5 , yes FIVE people employed on PR and Communications including a Communications Director called Mark Rowan who allowed this statement to be issued. ”The League will not provide a running commentary on this matter but will update as appropriate”.
If Mark was working for me , he’d be in for a very uncomfortable day.
What a disgraceful and patronising statement from the people who are supposed to be the custodians of the League. They are talking about an institution which is 115 years old and beloved by its community. The club is being threatened with expulsion, extinction and we want a meaningful statement every day, twice a day if necessary not when the EFL deems fit to drop a crumb in our laps.
Also, we want to know exactly what more information is required from our supposed owners, we want to know exactly when they have to supply it by and we want to know exactly what is going to happen when they fail to supply it.
The EFL is there to serve the clubs and their communities and to tell them clearly what is going on with their community clubs not to sidle up or pussy foot around with the sensitivities of potential owners – people who in Charlton’s case are clearly not fit to own a football club, a fact that was obvious 6 months ago , 5 months ago , 4 months ago , 3 months ago ………..and so on.
The EFL is clearly a shambles in every respect.
Let’s face it the CEO ( David Baldwin) and the Chairman (Rick Parry) of the EFL are demonstrably and grossly incompetent.
How on earth can we get to the end of the season with no answer on the fines or points deductions hanging over Derby and Sheffield Weds which have been dragging on since November of last year. They can’t even supply a date by which time the verdicts will be announced. It is totally disgraceful and both Baldwin and Parry should step aside and be replaced by executives who actually know how to run a business professionally.
On top of that at our club we have been waiting for 6 months for the EFL opinion on the fitness of our prospective owners ESI1 and latterly ESI2 despite the fact that our entire fan base know that Southall, Farnell, Nimer and Elliott are a bunch of parasitic chancers who have never had the resources to buy and run the club and should be prevented from buying any football club at any level.
If someone wants to buy a club, any idiot can tell you that BEFORE any transaction is possible, the EFL should stipulate that funds to run the club for a couple of seasons should be placed in escrow and only subsequently used for specific football expenses.
The EFL need people at the top who know how to run a business, make decisions and provide real leadership not dithering useless incompetents
It seems to me that Tomer Hemed owes us all a couple of goals and I have decided that Brum away will be his match winning moment. How on earth can you have a goal scoring record in every club you’ve played for and at full international level of one every other game and then register zero from 17 games for us.
At Brighton , he scored 32 goals in 89 appearances, at QPR on loan he scored 7 in 27 and for the full Israeli team , he has scored 17 in 37.
Now advancing age catches up with all of us a bit and I remember as centre forward in my Sunday League days that I got slower and stiffer, but Tomer, mate, it didn’t stop me from scoring on my final appearance at the age of 44, a glorious volley to make the score a respectable 3-9 ( our defence were all over the place).
It’s time you stepped up and popped a couple of life savers into the onion bag.
I fully expect a lyrical rendition on Wednesday night of
Oh Tomer, Tomer ……Tomer Tomer Hemeddddd………….
