Thursday's Q&A cancelled
Richard Murray and Derek Chappell have been given "no choice"
but to postpone this Thursday's question-and-answer evening at The Valley after receiving "extensive legal advice."
Murray said: "Our advisors have warned us it would not be appropriate to attend a public meeting, and the current situation means that we would have been unable to answer or contribute to many of the likely main points of discussion, which would have been wholly unsatisfactory. It might sound strange, but I hope fans take this as a positive thing, and of course we will rearrange the event the moment we are able to speak more freely."
The plot thickens, but can we take this as positive news about some potential investment or a takeover or is it just another illusion to deprave fans of answers? It also begs the question of why the Q&A was ever offered in the first place, particularly in the knowledge that this was going on behind the scenes?
Whatever the scenario, at least the silence has been broken even though this whole summer has been like playing with a huge CAFC jigsaw puzzle.... with plenty of bits missing.
