Holden’s agent

Dean Holden’s agent has been busy, and I don’t blame him.

Holden has said all the right things since being installed as the temporary manager of Charlton just before Christmas. His mates have all disappeared, but it does sound like he wants to grasp the opportunity to manage the club and stay.

It is a turnaround job, but possibly both parties have found someone to believe in, and belief has been in short supply in SE7 for some while.

Sandgaard appoints Peter Storrie as CEO

That wily old fox Thomas Sandgaard has been saying for years how he has NO need to appoint someone to provide senior leadership at The Valley, and manage the day to day running of the business. You know it’s not important to have someone experienced and knowledgeable to fill this role.

Hang on everyone. Thomas’ lips moved.

Another murky day of mystery, intrigue and disruption at Charlton.

It appears club staff have been told of the appointment of Peter Storrie as the new CEO. Storrie had a less than storied career at West Ham, Southend, Notts County and Portsmouth.

Once arrested for corruption alongside Harry Redknapp, and later cleared, he was also exculpated of tax invasion due to the sale of Addicks’ legend Amdy Faye. He took Pompey into administration and left citing personal abuse from supporters who blamed him for the club’s demise.

Charlton Athletic 1 Fleetwood Town 2

Painful to watch that, and we even had to suffer almost 20 minutes of injury time.

No one came out of that with any credit. Despite a week’s break they all looked knackered and more than anything the decision making all over the pitch was dreadful.

Methven deal off

Thomas Sandgaard said today that the sale of the football club to Charlie Methven and his consortium is off.

Sandgaard’s reasoning is that there were “some very specific terms that were very clear at the end of January and coming into February that they didn’t comply with.”

Methven’s group say that a price was always agreed at £8.5million for a 90 per cent stake in the football club and that a deposit (£850,000) was paid and banks funded. It is not thought that the EFL had yet given it’s approval.

In a nest of liars, who to believe?

More lies and BS. But, what now?

I was considering what my final thoughts were on the January transfer window following on from the speedy but worthy comments from Albury and Drinking.

It is noticeable that every player we released went to clubs below us, O’Connell to Wrexham being the oddity. They were replaced by players that have played at a higher level, ignoring whether they are anywhere near fit to play.

Is Kane able?

Following hot on the heels of the signing of Macauley Bonne, Coventry’s Todd Kane has signed on loan until the end of the season.

Kane and Dean Holden give their thoughts here, but also there is a bloke called Thomas Sandgaard, who appears from the abyss, and shares his broad footballing knowledge with us fans. How we have missed his opinion..

Methven and Sandgaard

Charlie Methven was seen at last night’s game at Oxford, probably wearing one of those half and half scarves.

This after it came to light yesterday thanks to investigative work by Rick and Dave, that Methven and his ‘group’ have signed a deal to purchase the club, not the real estate assets, from Thomas Sandgaard.

Oxford United 3 Charlton Athletic 1

Where do you start. Or put another way, where does it end?

That was shocking. A first 45 minutes up there with the worst I have ever seen. Slightly better 2nd half, but we are so fragile, well and useless, at the back that Oxford scored from their first real attack after the break and it was another straightforward loss.

What do we know?

Not for the first time, the festive season has us looking out for Charlton Breaking News!

So, what do we know? That something is cooking behind the scenes is without doubt, and it looks as if there are at least two interested parties. The appointments of Messers Rodwell, Scott and Warwick with Methven as a go-between are obviously one party, although it is unclear to where that money has come from because I don’t expect Sandgaard has contributed a cent.

Another day of intrigue and mystery

Where to begin….

As they say, there is a lot to unpack here.

Charlton owner Thomas Sandgaard today appointed four “experienced professionals in senior roles at the club.” (more)

Time is up for the Sandgaard’s

Time is being called on Thomas Sandgaard’s reign as Charlton’s owner. His support network diminishing rapidly as focus turns to Sandgaard and his family’s mismanagement of the football club and ill-treatment of it’s employees.

On Monday at 7pm UK time CAST are holding an online meeting with a goal of bringing the fanbase together to agree how supporters proceed from here. The Zoom call is open to all supporters and you can register here.

Ben Garner post mortem

Ben Garner strikes me as a reasonably smart bloke, he always carried an honest opinion post games, which was refreshing, but in recent weeks and even months the narrative had become a lot more barbed.

In front of the owner on Saturday he pretty much wrote his suicide note by playing a team and formation that issued a ‘what else am I meant to do’ plea.

30 year old memories

Happy 30th anniversary Back to The Valley Day.

We’ll ignore how the team did their very best to bury any memories of a wonderful time in our history on Saturday. A penny for the thoughts of those real Charlton legends including the peerless Roger and Heather Alwen who had to sit through that tosh.
