The bookies have made Charlton third favourites for promotion from League One next season: Promotion challengers
It all looks very unlikely to me. While my non-league club is making a series of good signings, all we are seeing is exits at The Valley. While I have confidence in Lee Bowyer, his hands are tied.
We just have to hope that there is a sudden breakthrough in the stalled takeover talks which seem to be beset by more than one issue. Perhaps then we will see Skippy and his friends bounding round the pitch before the start of the season.
There is a rumour circulating that the Australians don't have the cash and are prepared to let Roland retain ownership of The Valley and training ground. I would have thought that Muir and his associates are not short of the necessary readies, but who knows? I don't!
