It’s the hope that kills you
Struggled today after last night’s disappointment. Hopefully the players are thinking more positively but Sunday is going to need a top Charlton performance, one not just of steely determination and passion, but from somewhere we have to get goals. Pearce’s backside and an Amos big goal kick have provided our only goals in the last 4 games.
On the flip side, it was only a perfect strike from Nolan that broke our defensive stronghold, and Amos again looked confident in goal. We all know what it takes, and I am sure 1,500 noisy Addicks will provide tremendous backing on Sunday afternoon in Shropshire.
It is now apparent that Andrew Muir, his partner Gerard Murphy were both at the game last night with a couple of other unnamed Aussies. With them was Paul Elliott, long thought to be part of Muir’s consortium for new ownership of the club.
If you haven’t read it, then Rick has pieced it altogether here and expects that Muir (second left in the photo) will become chairman, Murphy (third left) chief executive and Elliott vice chairman once the deal is completed, although it could be inked as early as tomorrow.
The number one goal is to rid us of Roland Duchatelet, but still he haggles over retaining the freehold over some land at The Valley. This would require a change in the lease of the stadium and also require all seven of the former director group, which includes Richard Murray’s, agreement to have their outstanding bonds paid up. That doesn’t have appeared to have happened. Yet.
Rumours also tell of Duchatelet insisting on a promotion bonus and incredibly receiving a 10% fee on each of the young academy players sold on a go-forward basis that have been nurtured under his ownership. That has to be BS, please.
The goal on Sunday is to extend the season for one more game. That is borderline as it stands. Nonetheless the biggest goal of all is to get rid of Duchatelet and welcome the Aussies, who impressed those that saw them walking around The Valley last night wearing scarfs and talking warmly to supporters.
It is the hope that kills you.
