Meire ridiculed again
The club might not win naff all in the forthcoming future but they are way ahead in the league table of ridicule with ace striker Katrien Meire the leading scorer.
An eagle eyed supporter on Charlton Life found some public documents from Companies House that show that Meire had recently resigned as a director of Charlton Athletic Holdings. Cue classic Charlton conspiracy theories alongside glee at the thought that Meire was packing her bags.
What then followed was hilarious as Addicks wondered to next steps whilst amateur graphologists analysed Meire’s signature to make sure it wasn’t a fake. Turns out it was, as Addicks’ protest against the regime and in particular our incompetent CEO took a different turn.
The club, prompted by Meire I would think, suddenly rolled out that serious corner flag and announced that “This document is false and the club is investigating the matter as it is something we take seriously.” The Guardian picked up on it today to take this prank nationally, which probably wouldn’t have happened if the club hadn’t decided to comment.
Let’s put this into perspective. Thousands demonstrate outside her office. Nothing. 100’s of banners unveiled in the ground. Nothing. Thousands of fans staying away. Nothing. Bottom of the table. Nothing. 6 managers in 2 years. Oh hang on, every decision better than the last. Phew, reassuring.
This may be a good time for me to welcome the new Head of Communications Mel Baroni. The 26-year old was previously at M&C Saatchi Sport & Entertainment. I would say that she may not have made the best of starts.
