Bloody red card
"Understandably, asking fans to retain ticket stubs has caused some difficulties, and we are now able to better take advantage of the club's new database system."
in true Charltonese "the club is advising fans to hold on to any stubs for the time being."
What a load of balls. 18 months ago I applied and paid for the privilege of being an International member but nothing, cheque was cashed, emails were received, people left, people took over responsibilities, even the normally reliable Rick Everitt left a comment on here
but sure enough as Charlton are Charlton bugger all happened.
Then comes the Red Card. I applied, a lady called Sue Hubert takes time out of her busy day to email me to tell me I will receive a red card "in a couple of weeks."
That was January 3rd, almost one year ago.
I applied again at the beginning of the season. And er, nothing. You know what? I don't expect an awful lot being a Charlton fan for over 30 years of my life, but sometimes they make supporting them so fucking difficult.
I know full well that there are plenty others, particularly overseas Addicks, that the club blatently do not give a flying toss about, that have never received a Red Card.
So now what happens if I want to go to an away game, like Watford when I am next home? It appears I need to have a Red Card and one of my mates or family member has to have my membership number. Read my lips. I haven't got a card or a number.
Is it me or hidden away on the official site
, this story needs a bit more explaining doesn't it?
