The failure of fans to get on side stopped Charlton winning promotion to the Premier League, claims Roland Duchatelet: I would have taken Charlton to top flight
Duchatelet seems to be blaming disgruntled ex-employees again whom he considered formed the core of protests in Belgium. They lost free entry to games and as a consequence, 'Some of those people were nasty and lied about many things.'
It will be interesting to see whether there is any response to this narrative from the Ramsgate direction.
Initial responses from fans on social media include 'The only place he would have taken us is League Two' and 'What utter bollocks, the man is batshit crazy, delusional and a total clown. You know where the door is, jog on.'
Blogger Hungry Ted tweeted, 'If you showed or demonstrated any semblance of ambition, desire and passion and an understanding of what Charlton means to fans on the pitch and within the community we’d have been right behind you.'
Another fan tweeted, 'Even if we remove all the emotion and focus only on the logic, none of the evidence supports Duchatelet’s rhetoric. Even if we forgive the early fundamental errors. He’s had FOUR YEARS to turn it round. We are playing a division lower with little sign of improvement.'
