The ability of Charlton fans to complain about anything is legendary. Complaints about some performances on the pitch are understandable, but I must say I was surprised to see some fans complaining on social media about the appointment of a top ranking lawyer to the Charlton board: https://londonnewsonline.co.uk/lawyer-leo-rifkind-appointed-as-charlton-athletic-director/
Rifkind works for Freshfields, one of the top London lawyers, and has extensive legal experience in the United States as well. With Roland still having a stake in the club and various sharks (shurely businessmen of the highest probity, ed) lurking in the background there is surely value in having a first class lawyer on tap.
Admittedly London lawyers don't come cheap, but presumably Thomas Sandgaard can (and has) footed the bill. I sometimes wonder whether I pay more to my lawyer or my dentist in a given year!
Desmond from Deal comments: 'If this smart**** lawyer is there to show Bowyer the door, he will be worth his weight in gold.'
