Nimer fights back

What we do know of HE Tahnoon Nimer is that he is a little excitable, not polished, and with English not his first language, that voice note was a result of a man clearly fired up.

But who here is the fantasist, the liar, the trickster?

Southall issued another statement this morning saying they have accepted HE Tahnoon Numer’s resignation. That was followed by a much more thorough and detailed account from Nimer, which tells a very different story, and a fuller one that Southall is sharing.

Nimer says he has not resigned and lists a catalogue of complaints about Southall’s stewardship and mis-management, in particular with the EFL, who had placed a transfer embargo on the club, which throws light on our transfer activity. Nimer’s post makes it clear that he is seeking the removal of Southall, and until such time will suspend any financial contributions. However he will remain as a club director.

I would assume Nimer has Jonathan Heller in his corner, and Southall for all the nice coats and social graces is looking more like a chancer and a wannabe.

If this wasn’t the football club we love, we’d get the popcorn out. Who’s lying? And who moves next?

More importantly give us our fucking football club back.

    I go out for an hour, come back and the story has moved on several levels! I’ll read the Charlton Life thread if I find a spare four hours or so!

    My God. What is going on? This is like a Netflix series and making it imposible for me to do any work today.

    What a mess. I’m re-assured that TN – the money man – wants to stay at the club and I’m assuming here that Heller is his man on the board in the same way that Slater was on the board after the Jimenez takeover. Heller seems to be quite an experienced and senior operative in Tahnoon’s organisation so that is where his loyalties lie. I’ve also been doing a bit of research on MS and frankly he doesn’t have the greatest CV – lots of small scale start ups, a few are no longer extant and no obvious sign of success or where he could get serious funds from,so I presume he’s either a very minor investor or he’s just a suit with no actual clout. Presumably he blagged his way into this and then got found out – and the acquisition of expensive Range Rovers etc was the last straw.

    The “Transfer Embargo” is curious, this (via Tahnoon’s statement) is the first I’ve heard of it. TN is claiming that the manager (presumably he means MS here not Bow) has failed to keep the EFL up to date. It seems that two weeks ago we were about to sign a player but the EFL blocked this – subsequently our form has been poor suggesting that this has been rumbling on for some time.

    Next stage – this is going to be either expensively unwound in the courts unless MS is persuaded to step down.

  4. We have become such a soap opera. However this might just gel the playing staff together to focus on the next 9 games. If we go down this will end badly potentially in administration.
    Thanks for keeping on top of things – I find the fan sites too full of crazy and twitter hilarious but not informative.

    • Thanks Simon. I am stirring around a blog post of the same. Got to hope that Bow can create a siege mentality now….. got to cling on to something 😔

    What a depressing mess, who do we believe? Are they both at fault, but we have been kept in the dark for the last two months, no wonder the transfer window was a joke. It would be better if TN is the one in the right as he has the financies. Let’s hope the mess gets resolved quickly as CAFC must survive. I will resume buying EUROMILLIONS lottery tickets in the faint hope of winning big.
    I have met Chris Parkes and am aware of his sterling service for the club if he is in the TN camp I would tend to follow his lead.
