It's Dowie, Reed & Robson
Iain Dowie was unveiled by Richard Murray as the man that will lead Charlton into a new era today. He will be supported by Les Reed and Mark Robson."I'd like to say how privileged I am to be here. This was emphasised further when I went to the training ground and saw the development going on there. There's fantastic things behind the scenes, the club is go-ahead and matches my ambition. I want a forward-thinking club that can progress."
Simon Jordan attempted to highjack the press conference by issuing a writ to Dowie on a misrepresentation charge. Dowie of course will have moved at least 7 miles further north so I don't know what all the fuss is about!
I love this comment by Richard Murray afterwards though: "I do know Simon has always been rather envious or jealous of Charlton Athletic because we've had probably the success he's been striving for with a wonderful stadium that we own. Maybe he ought to ring me some time."
More from me later.
