Better times around the corner?
As a mysterious for sale sign in Dutch appeared on a wall outside The Valley, the VOTV has disclosed that a secure data room was created within The Valley 2 weeks ago and has since been in use by an unknown female lawyer. Not Pinocchio.
Of course this is what one would expect at the outset of a due-diligence process or an external audit. Any potential and qualified buyer who has agreed to sign an NDA would need to have ready access to a whole range of financial data, and that is what I assume this lawyer is putting together. Word is also that a price has been agreed in principle.
Karl Robinson has been quick to suffocate any excitedness saying he has been assured that the club isn’t for sale! Of course Roland and Katrien would never lie would they. Don’t worry Karlos you will be the last to know, but like when Chris Loughlin showed up at Sparrows Lane.
However Ronnie Rosenthal, rumoured to involved broking a proposed deal, was in The Valley director’s box on Tuesday although when questioned old liar liar said that his wife was a personal friend. Such a good friend by all accounts that Rosenthal hadn’t been seen at The Valley before.
Sheffield United tomorrow, who under Chris Wilder march on their way to promotion. A per-requisite target of Charlton’s as well if you remember. Hopefully like the 2nd half on Tuesday we show some signs that better things on the pitch are around the corner. Off the pitch we live in hope that transformational things are also around the corner.
