A ghost club

Here is an excellent outside prognosis of the current state of Charlton written by the excellent Twohundredpercent website.

The article is called the ‘Forgotten club’ and within the article the Addicks are described as a ‘ghost club.’

The forgotten club line rings true, long gone are the days when we can say to strangers “you know Charlton Athletic, we were in Premier League a couple of years back.” We are a forgotten club to most football fans and media that only concentrate on the Premier League and upper echelons of The Championship.

Bowyer and Kewell

Two years ago Lee Bowyer was fishing carp out of a lake in France, his own lake in fact. One of the many keen fisherman that would visit Bowyer at his two lakes just over 3 hours from Calais was his former Leeds’ team mate Harry Kewell.

Whilst Bowyer was enjoying his time away from the game, Kewell began the long journey into coaching initially in Australia before becoming Watford’s U21 coach in July 2015. In October of that same year Kewell offered Bowyer a chance to join him. In a wild quirk of fate they may be re-united next week.

Aussie, Aussie, Aussie

After what has seen like a length of a James Cook expedition the Aussies are apparently finally coming. We have seen plenty of false dawns but word is that next week we may eventually get rid of the Belgian poison and have new owners.

According to the sage Richard Murray there were two bids accepted. One was obviously the Aussies, and the other may have been an Arab consortium, or was it English or was it the Scots, and someone said today there was some American interest. Who the hell knows, except that we finally rid ourselves of Roland Duchatelet.

As expected Karl Robinson’s time as Charlton manager is over. He left the club by mutual consent this morning.

Mutual consent being that both Duchatelet and Robinson agreed to tear up his contract with some compensation paid to the manager. Some, if not all of which Duchatelet may well be reclaim from Oxford United, where Robinson is expected to turn up.

Robinson resigned

This story will clearly develop over the next 24 to 48 hours but it is now known that Karl Robinson tendered his resignation to owner Roland Duchatelet before the Blackpool game. The Belgian refused to accept his resignation, but Robinson has since offered again.

Charlton Athletic 0 Fleetwood Town 0

Devoid to ideas, devoid of anything..

Even the fellas on the radio commentary who can make a throw-in sound exciting were stuck for words at this woeful display today in front of a sparse Valley. We’ve scored once now in four games. We are a team lacking in spirit, pace, ideas and direction.

After a reasonably encouraging start by us Fleetwood soon worked us out and put plenty of men behind the ball and limited us to two shots on target. In fact the Cod Army had the best chances of the game and should have won it in the 2nd half but fluffed a golden opportunity.

CARD: Protests to resume

Following absolute silence on the takeover front on the back of a couple of positive Richard Murray proclamations, that have frankly been pointless. Then with Karl Robinson after the Blackpool game saying that any takeover is nowhere near and it could be next season CARD have called for a day of protests at the Rotherham game on Easter Monday and will follow that up with action at the other 3 home games in April.
