No contract for Morrison yet

“There is talk something will be sorted out – that’s all well and good – but is that just lip service? I’d like to think that a contract will be offered before I get back off holiday. Whether it does or not, we’ll see.”

If something doesn’t get offered me then I’ll have to go down other routes. I knew I was going out of contract and I’ve spoken to different parties, like anybody would.”

“You want to see some clear direction. When you look at January we brought in players and a lot didn’t play as many games towards the end of the season and at Blackpool only Astrit [Ajdarevic] was available for selection.”

That’s Michael Morrison wondering what the hell is going on. He is not the only one, and people wonder why some of us want to hear a clear concise plan, both short and long term for the football club.

If Dervite goes for double his wages, then so be it, but not Morro, no this man would be very hard to replace. Vice captain, a leader, a huge influence on the club’s re-emergence from the middle of League One.

    I have yet to see Roland Duchatelet display Championship level competence regards player negotiations and contracts. The long months of delay of sorting out contracts for key players alongside the absence of a head coach looks amateur and incompetent.

    Whilst I don’t want to know the detail of discussions, some reassuring overall statements / any communication from the owners / management team are conspicuously absent regarding the direction of the team. I am starting to think that is because Charlton supporters will not like what is in store.

    The contracts offered should take account of the league Charlton is in and not the league below. It would not be a surprise to see Morrisson leave. At this rate, a whole new spine of the team will be needed alongside some decent strikers. That will not be cheap as Roland Duchatelet will find out.

    The onfield goings on regarding the players contracts are very annoying. I am not enjoying or reassured by the Duchatelet ownership of Charlton. I don’t see drive or ambition on the pitch. It is starting to look Glickstein like. The next 2 to 3 months will confirm this direction or not to us all.

    • I think we (including me) need to be patient, but an early sign of intention (appointing Riga for example) would be a nice lift. However CPRR, you are perfectly right, the next 3 months will tell us everything we need to know.

    No sign of a meeting then – perhaps they are waiting for us all to go on holiday.
