A new International Supporters Club?
Back in the summer I enquired into joining the International Supporters Club and Ian Cartwright returned my request asking for my credit card details and wrote "membership forms are being printed."
Of course they took my credit card details to enable the club to give Kevin Lisbie a bonus.
Then in September I chased Ian again and was told that "we are currently working our way through 10,000 membership forms (not all International!), if you haven't got anything in say a couple of weeks please give me a shout."
Then in mid October I found out that Ian Cartwright had suddenly left the club. I wrote this
the same day.
"Is the club listening? Yes."
"With Ian's departure, Wendy Perfect and I requested that responsibility for the ISC pass to us in our Target 40,000 capacity, because we think we are best placed to support and develop it. It will take us a few weeks to get to grips with what has been promised and delivered to date. In the meantime, rest assured that the ISC is not being neglected - far from it."
Nothing happened except that I heard that the ISC was going to be rolled into the Red Card Platinum
scheme. On January 3rd I received an email from Sue Hubert telling me that I was to receive a red card "in a couple of weeks."
And since then silence until I heard on the grapevine that British Columbia blogger
friend Ken Jennings has taken up the mantle of an Addicks International Supporters Club and I believe is actually meeting club officials today in SE7.
I and others look forward to Ken's assessment of that meeting and if he could throw my red card out of the plane window as he passes over the midwest then that would be just dandy.
I am sure Ken would welcome any opinions you have on the validity of a new ISC. You can email him here
or leave comments below.
