Rod Liddle was writing in the Sunday Times yesterday about the fate of Blackburn Rovers under their current owners, Venky's. He concluded the article, 'I remember, a few years back, a close mate of mine telling me in excited terms that his club were about to be taken over by a foreign owner with lots of money to splash around. Just watch us go! And indeed we did. The club was Charlton Athletic and the owner was Roland Duchatelet.'
Liddle reckons that 'Charlton look set for a long sojourn down below the waterline.' Liddle is, of course, a Millwall supporter, but, to be fair, he has backed CARD.
