Sad. That's how I feel about our club. I resent that the board and in particular individuals I have long respected and admired have cheated me out of a proper and deserving explanation about what is going on behind the scenes at the club. As others have written and said I have nothing against Parkinson, but he clearly got the job because he was the cheapest option, and between the divisions in the boardroom and their bullshit anouncements, they have half-cocked the situation and with it duly accepted relegation to Division 3.
It pains me to read idiots like this
take the piss out of our once proud club. Friends of mine who support other teams now give me an apologetic look. It disgusts me that it has got to this. How once again we have been taken for idiots by people who used to call us one of their own. How fucking dare they. So they've put money into the club, some a lot more than others. Well they should have taken slightly more care of it then.
I sometimes think the tea lady and the kitmen they made redundant last season were the wrong people, they should have put them in charge.
What a mess. If Parkinson was the right man for the job, then give the bloody bloke the job 6 weeks ago. Forest acted in less than 5 days to remove Calderwood and replace him with easily the best Championship manager available. All the while our board were drawing up powerpoint slides for the 'Strategic Review.' I wonder if it includes a free season ticket offer for next season. Pull the other one, it's got baubles on.
I'm not going to get into the slanging of Parkinson because the self destruct button is pressed so far down that he needs our support. He'll get it I hope, but will he get it from those useless underperforming nobs that have pretended to wear our shirt this season. I hope so, because I don't hold out much hope for the transfer window.
Deon Burton, who can't even get into the first team, is now permanent. Whoppee-do. "January is a very important time for the club,"
Derek Chappell said. How many times have we heard that Delboy? We only sold our best players when we were good.
Being laughed at and supporting shite and cheering a corner I can somewhat abide. I have loved Charlton Athletic longer than I have loved most other things or people in my life. Love is not written down, or said, it is inside, in the heart. I feel cheated and am not dealing with it very well.
