Don’t appreciate being called a liar

An uncomfortable night at The Valley Tuesday for Katrien Meire, but probably more so for Johnnie Jackson, Steve Avory and Tony Watt, who must have wondered why an earth he got a last minute invite to a heated VIP Q&A and was asked a question about Scottish sexual monsters!

With Guy Luzon bailing deciding to watch Wigan play Reading last minute instead, it seems Katrien pulled rank on a mixture of football staff to take a large part of the heat away from her. It may have worked, it may not have done, it just comes across as another PR gaff.

Richard Murray conveniently was stuck in traffic and missed the first half hour when Katrien was the focus of all the questions, particularly about Guy Luzon’s appointment and Roland Duchatelet’s ambitions for the club.

Katrien doesn’t appreciate being a liar. I don’t appreciate that she even put herself in a situation that she has had to deny lying. How possibly the club received 20 applicants and interviewed thoroughly two managers face to face in a single day just hours after the position came up calls for scrutiny and I think she is forgetting that the Sky cameras were outside the ground for most of it, capturing Luzon’s arrival with his suitcase and then reappearing 20 minutes later.

Remember at the time Meire said that “by late Sunday evening it became clear that Guy was the favourite.” Some exhaustive interview search that was.

If Roland Duchatelet’s confident Dudu Dahan hadn’t blabbed it or Mrs Luzon given the game away, then I may have more confidence in Ms Meire.

Anyway you can decide for yourself as the video of the event is up on the Official You Tube site.

  1. I agree with your comments C.A., I cant say I like being taken for a mug either, new faces always have to earn trust, but what does get to me is Richard Murrays support for the new owner. Richard needs to remember his time as chairman of our club, and the ways in which he tried to be open with supporters and did his best to meet with them, quite the reverse whats on offer today.,

When you apply for a job n aint got it do yourn demand to know the names of who else applied, nah I didn’t think so either meself. Katrien n the board are doin a great job dahn our gaff n thass all there is to it.

    I don’t fully understand what our cheeky cockney is asaying but I have to say our Katrien appears to have grown a pair and she may turn out to be made of stronger stuff . She’s certainly got feisty and dealt with the whinging wankers…Maybe we should give her time to do her job..?

    Funny kind of nefarious plot that costs 20 mil up front and then 1/2 mill per month to service . I think you go way overboard with your cynasism . I like Katrien and think she has balls.

    I reckon the club did the interviews like speed dating CA…. Mind you I think Curbs’ England interview wasn’t far from that, if I remember his book correctly.

    Not sure if you heard the Mrs Luzon Twitter malarkey. She apparently had been tweeting/following Charlton a few weeks before he was appointed. Katrien muttered something about it being a fake account at the meeting but it looked mighty real to me. Either Mrs Luzon is a staunch Addick, who always stood on the right side of the Covered End, or Guy had an inkling he might get the job.

    All pretty peripheral to the main issues I suppose, but indicative.

    What did you make of the Trust meeting?
