Derek Chappell speaks
I have been critical on here
of Derek Chappell and the long spells of silence since he took the role of chairman in March. I wrote last night
of Richard Murray and how we shouldn't forget his feelings after Zabeel decided to walk away from their interest in buying the club, but I commented elsewhere that I felt the board, and namely Derek Chappell or Steve Waggott owed the fans, and of course fellow shareholders the decency of a response to what happened this week.
Well late today Chappell was interviewed on BBC Radio London and some of his comments were carried by the official site
and then tonight out of the blue, he joined Charlton Life
as a member and encouraged the fans to get behind the team tomorrow."We are at our best fighting back against the odds, we've done that for years"
I have to say it has the makings of a wind up, but I am assured it is really him. If that's the case, then kudos to him and I hope he is leading the directors box tomorrow in a rousing rendition of "We'll support you ever more."
