“The club is extremely saddened by the situation which has led to supporters demonstrating ahead of, and during, the match against Middlesbrough on Sunday.
Every supporter has the right to voice their opinion and we are determined to do everything we can to work together with supporters to build our relationship with them and make sure they remain at the heart of this club. 

We would like to thank supporters for getting behind the team today as we picked up a valuable three points in our fight to stay in the Championship.” 

Pathetic, just words that have no foundation or substance to them at all.

The situation? Woo, hello? Situation. Blimey, that crept under the radar Katrien. Some people have said in this picture caught on Sky, that Meire looks smug. She looks absolutely terrified to me.

Clearly a press release more than a fan statement. No doubt made for the benefit of the media, because I imagine there were a lot of phone calls to field this evening.

Make a decision Meire. Make the right one, not like all the others before it. Resign.

  1. CEO? Enough is enough. She is not fooling anybody and not being honest with herself. She is out of her depth. What she doesn’t know about running a football club could fill a warehouse.

    Me thinks realisation has finally kicked in, and this is their way of starting the reconciliation process with us the fans (note fans), yes it might appear a tad weird but after months of nothing from the “Comm’s” team yesterday’s brilliant protesting events broadcasted across many media outlets has forced them to reconsider.

    There can be no reconciliation until Meire has gone; anything she says cannot be trusted as being the truth. Get her out and reverse the decline.

    Pathetic, well depends on your outlook I suppose Mr CA.
    To me, this statement doesn’t seem in the least provocative, in fact the opposite. Also don’t really see the crime in using the word “situation” to refer to a situation?, and weren’t all the protest stunts organised yesterday staged to coincide with the television coverage and therefore also for the benefit of the media?.

        Well Mr CA, that opposition lot are so entrenched they are always going to find evidence that the other side is lying whether true or not – a bit like Tony Blair and the WMD. Like Tony and Iraq, they appear to have a single mission to get a change in ownership but absolutely no idea what happens thereafter.
        Sadly (unless this imaginary billionaire philanthropist materialises) I think we can look forward to years and years in the doldrums.
        I’ll still be renewing my season ticket regardless of who is in charge – I just hope in future for a less negative toxic and divisive atmosphere at the ground so I can once again enjoy my Saturday outings to the Valley.

    I must admit to feeling sorry for those who just want to go and watch the game – virtually all of us would like to do this. But this is a civil war, brought about by the actions of the regime, who would take us to new depths if we didn’t kick back. At many clubs the atmosphere would be a lot more poisonous in a situation like this; it takes a lot for Addicks to get really nasty. But I think the battle on Sunday went extremely well for us – the club statement is a good sign of this, and I don’t for one minute think they will be sitting down for cosy chats soon.

    • You are absolutely right to make the point that it takes a lot to get Charlton fans to the pitch of frustration and anger that produces the sort of protests that are now routine at home matches and that the ‘situation’ would have boiled over long before now at many other football clubs. Thank goodness there is still a great independent spirit amongst a large proportion of Charlton supporters who refuse to just tamely accept the ineptitude of the owner and the incompetent and arrogant CEO. CAFC is in the grip of an owner who manifestly not only knows nothing about how to run a football club but hasn’t got the intelligence to hire someone who does, what choice is there but to protest and speak up if you care about the future of Charlton?

        Do you mean running a football club more like a business? Even during the “glory days” of the Premier League we were losing money. Sooner or later fiscal order has to brought about to sustain the club over the long term.

    • So a2c, with your blanket ‘thass juss wot I think’ you seem to be agreeing with JH that ‘we can look forward to years and years in the doldrums’ . Could be that that is what’s worrying the protesters as well.

  9. To be fair to Mr JH, I don’t think he thinks like you a2c, although you maybe uncomfortable bedfellows next season.
