A busy news day
I like the new shirt from the glimpse
we were offered on the OS before tonight's game with Welling. And a new sponsor Kent Reliance Building Society
or KRBS paying us over £100,000 for the 3-year deal. It was interesting to read that 30 English clubs are yet to secure sponsorship for the new campaign so credit to the club again. The deal I believe was done by ex-commercial director Steve Sutherland before he got made redundant. There is some irony in there somewhere.
Two things jump out at me about the KRBS deal, one is that with Charlton's record with shirt sponsors I would pull all of your money out now of "the most innovative building society in the country"
if you're a customer before they go tits up! And secondly how do you feel Mr Scally feels about his ground and shirt sponsor getting in bed with us bastards? Oh I can see the steam coming out of his caravan from here!
Also, in a busy day for the club website
, Parky announced that ZZ and his agent have decided that they will move on despite the offer of a new contract. Let's face it, I could ask Jessica Biel out for a date, but it's unlikely she would say yes. However I enjoyed watching ZZ play in a Charlton shirt, I loved his energy and intelligent play and without a doubt the team improved with him in it at the conclusion of last season. Good luck and thanks ZZ.
With Matt Holland weighing up his options, he's training with Colchester at the moment and Fortune and Randolph yet to sign new deals, we are looking very thin on the ground. Holland doesn't owe us anything and he may feel he can get more play time and more money somewhere else. Randolph meanwhile has read like we have Parky's supposed interest in other 'keepers. I suspect though that any plans, including the future's of Parkinson and Kinsella, who is working without a contract, will now be on hold until any takeover takes place unless sanctioned by the new owners.
