Farnell terminated by the club
I was awake way before the alarm this morning feeling restless. I avoid looking at the phone because I know that is the day starting. But, first glance of the phone and I’m leaping out of bed.
Solicitor Chris Farnell was terminated by Charlton today as ESI v1 wrestle control of the club back from Chris Farnell and Paul Elliott aka ESI v2. Both Farnell and Andrei Mihail were removed as directors of ESI on Friday.
I am sure we haven’t heard the last of Farnell, and he most definitely hasn’t heard the last from us, but he is now out of the club with no control or influence and we’d have to expect that the appeal against their failure to pass the EFL’s Owners’ and Directors’ Test (OADT) that ESI v2 were going to make is dead in the water.
Addicks’ activists have been busy getting ESI v1 back together to help us in our journey to save our club and put us on a stable footing. Nimer has been underground but Addicks in the Middle East have worked hard to get him back to the table with the other directors Marian Mihail and Claudia Florica.
Yesterday their commitment to back Bowyer and Gallen against Dave Jones saying they would not appoint the former Hartlepool United manager was a big step forward.
Now to quote Rick Everitt: “This is the first instalment of the ownership drama and they are the good guys in this episode, to be clear.”
Addicks had to deal with the devil and the devils spawn, Matt Southall. An enemies enemy is a friend and all that. Paul Elliott has only ever been a stooge, and is now a man without a job, albeit a fantasist’s one in the first place. His comeuppance is next.
This is a journey driven by Charlton fans to get rid of those trying to actively destroy our club, and those trying to take it for every penny. Again, who knows what creditors and debt ESI v2 have left behind. It’s going to be long rocky journey and this a big box of jigsaw pieces. And trust no one accept each other.
Time is not on our side but the fury and energy is. The ultimate goal is get the football club and it’s assets together and then those parties to the table to secure the future of our historic little club.
I don’t understand half of it, but for those that want to try to understand much of this, and you’ll need a degree in sports law and finance, then hop over to Charlton Life.
