    he effectively does that now anyway. He brings the players in and tells the coach what ones to play.

    Wilder would have to have a screw loose to consider 'managing' a team at our shambles of a club.

    What makes you think you know what's going on? All you've seen are the protests and are siding with them and their bullshit propaganda. Things aren't as bad as these anti Roland lunatics are projecting.

    Lamby is in the complete minority. 99.99% of our fans want him out and with good reason.

    Contrary to reports, he doesn't choose what players to buy and doesn't tell the manager who to play. Is it not the scouts fault for picking out crap players instead? At least he's spending money unlike the last owner who made us rely on freebies.

    The management changes have mostly been at the right time, Powell went as we were 23rd in the league at the time, which was cause for concern and something needed to be done. Why people can't see that I don't know. Luzon could have been given more time before being sacked in October. The only managerial disaster they made was to appoint Fraeye as caretaker, utterly useless and out of his depth.

    People aslo hate Roland as he's employed a CEO who they see as being unable to do her job. She said fans are customers and they have no ownership of the club. This is a correct statement imo. Why should fans feel a sense of ownership of a club when they don't have an shares within it? Secondly, yes we are customers. Everything which involves a monetary transaction means you're a customer, you can't argue against it. She also has a senseless song made up about how she's a slapper. Our moronic "fans" are stooping to a low low level, they'd fit in better supporting the c*nts down the road.

    I think people only hate them as they are foreign, hence the chants of "you Belgian wankers, get out of our club".

    Loyal fans will be there through thick and thin and back the team and whoever runs the club, but there's more to life than football.

    So does that mean I should suffer verbal and almost physical assualt at games as I don't agree with you lot? You've turned into a bunch of cretins.

    He sacked Powell because Powell wasn't happy with the fact random players were being brought into the club. Powell has gone on record saying people were turning up at training and he had no idea who they were and it turned out they were new players.

    He has since employed Riga (twice), Peeters, Luzon and Freaye. All managers from within his network and all managers with zero championship experience. He also employed a chief executive with no prior experience and has not been to a game himself for 18 months.

    Standard Liege, another club he used to own had constant protests by their fans during his ownership.

    I literally cannot fathom anyone who thinks this guy has done good at our club.

    I don't agree with fans turning on other fans at all. I do agree with the protests however.

    Is Lamby one of these fans who think that you've done well if you have 1 shot on target in a 4-0 defeat. He seems quite deluded to be honest.

    Shame what has happened to Charlton imo. Adamf1 is there any reports of fan boycotts next season and are many fans who are part of CARD pledging to not renew their season tickets as a result of the ownership situation? Boycotting is probably the strongest way to get Dutchatelet out of the club.

    The amount of managerial changes he has imposed on the club, the amount of managers they have hired without Football League experience and the constant turnover of players since he bought the club are strong indicators that Charlton can only restart as a club when Dutchatelet goes.

    But they are doing more harm than good now. It's turned into the SS or something now.

    Loads of people aren't renewing, which is good as we can finally get rid of them and their annoying protest stance throughout the games.

    Season tickets sales will dramatically decrease for next season. To be honest a lot of fans that had tickets for this season stopped going halfway through this season but as is with most clubs this does not get reflected in the announced attendance figures. I would guess that we will end up with around 5000 season ticket holders next year. The thing is we have ridicously cheap season tickets available (£175), yet still people won't renew. For the record I did not go to a single game this season.
