War on fans continues
Trying to catch up on Charlton stuff amongst this crazy world that we live in.
My good friend Dave at Drinking During the Game enunciates better than I could the next installment in Katrien Meire’s war on Charlton supporters. I mean, and you would know this, I have been uber critical of our CEO for I think every good reason, but she and her advisors, sycophants even, just can’t help themselves can they?
It’s as if she has laid out this punishment to any Addicks who don’t renew their season tickets! A number by the way that is being kept very close to the chest. It also undoes any work or future plans that the Target 20k group has.
How Meire and sidekick dipstick Tony Keohane keep coming up with these wacky ideas is both hilarious and thoroughly depressing. The slightest opportunity to save or make a pound, but without any logic, thought or collaboration with fans. Target 20k and the CAST have both spoken out against these latest ticket proposals.
At a critical point in time of the future of our club, the owner and his mouthpiece should be doing everything possible to bring in the causal supporters, whether they are a one time only tourist, a lapsed fan, or a blindly loyal supporter’s neighbour.
For me, I have a couple of good mates that are able to pop by the ticket office to pick up tickets for me for games or I myself grab a ticket before the game. I travel a long way to get to The Valley yet like many I will be penalized by these new policies.
For every positive step forward it is two back, and I am utterly convinced that these leopards cannot and will not change their spots.
