More rumours in advance of Q&A
More rumours persist on the world wide wind up tonight. Millwall's South London Press
have cranked the old handle with this: "And the South London Press understands that their takeover could be completed within the next couple of days - allowing them to be in control within two weeks."
The timing of this is actually very interesting because it is Thursday that Richard Murray and Derek Chappell host a question and answer session
for fans at The Valley. Probably not helped in anyway by my complete blithe attitude to all things Charlton at present, I expected the Q&A to be a complete waste of time. Yes fans will show up with good intentions to get answers to tough questions but will never be as prepared as their hosts and will end up going home full of Murray's charm and goodwill and Chappell's BS.
Danny at Charlton Life
has sent this letter
to Derek Chappell and Matt Wright to be considered before Thursday and I think this is an excellent starting point to a conversation that is long overdue after a bewildering silence. The club were looking for more numbers last week, which is shameful quite honestly, but for those that are going please don't be duped or outwitted. We all deserve more after a wretched time in the club's history.
Elsewhere today Josh Wright, who wasn't offered a new contract signed for Scunthorpe
. The youngster was clearly not in Parkinson's plans and I understand had a couple of offers on the table. I was impressed with Wright when I saw him play, although tabloid photos and stories of insolence didn't do him any favours. Nonetheless whose judgment would you back? Nigel Adkins or Phil Parkinson?
