The three B's
Despite brunch, baby stuff and the beach, yesterday was spent almost entirely attached to the internet, mostly Charlton Life
which has become like an online therapy centre for neurotic Addicks, like oneself.
I had brunch with an old friend after I spent a couple of hours searching around for any crumbs of comfort on the net after I woke, then we practiced strollers and car seats until we gave up, me citing heat exhaustion so I could go back to the internet. Around that time the players did put in a decent workout to beat 2nd tier Irish side Wexford Youths 3-0. For a proper report including the names of the two trialists that don't appear on cafc.co.uk

And then yesterday late afternoon with pregnant-other-half getting more agitated by my furious tapping on the keybooard, we went and sat on the beach and had a swim to cool down. My laptop was not the only thing that was hot here yesterday.
Mick Collins was the source of Saturday night's story in the Mail on Sunday
. Mick has impeccible sources but without any ratification from the club, then we are all left to speculate. What we can summise though is that the existing directors want as much returned on their investment, i.e have their loans wiped clean as much as possible, whereas the buyers want to get their trophy for as little as they can. So a stalement has ensued. There is plenty more to ruminate and be sure that is what bloggers and posters will continue to do but a thought for this morning.... can you imagine the friction at this time between Richard Murray and Peter Varney?
