Charlton fans prepare because this is going to be a big one. Roland Duchatelet will be interviewed by Jim White of Talk Sport and already the preview is stirring up the controversy that will not shock Charlton fans to hear what his seemingly deluded brain of his has to say, however it may shock the footballing world for what this man’s motives are and how he thinks is a correct way to run a club.
The 71-year-old has already stated in a sneak peek of the interview that “Charlton is not my life” well I’m sorry but if you are going to buy a football team you need to make it your main business otherwise it’s just going to fail like it already has and now that Roland is starting to admit to some of his mistakes, I feel it’s too little too late for the Belgian to get any respect from the fans after his disastrous and non-caring reign.
Roland has been to about two or maybe three Charlton games in his time and that is just not good enough. Football may be a real money orientated game nowadays, but you also need the passion to make a club run the way it should and that’s what we were lacking the entire time. The man had no interest in pumping money into the club he was only interested in what would come out of it, just take a look at the transfers. Lookman signed for Everton for around £11million and did we see any of that money injected into the club? Of course, we didn’t instead we got nothing for bringing up a player to that level and then just to be robbed of any comeback on it.
It’s time for Roland to go and it’s no secret he wants out too, we someone who is serious about taking us back to the big time and with this Australian consortium looking on taking us over our hopes can either be lifted or crushed once again.
Tune in to Talk Sport tomorrow morning from 10 to hear the full interview.
I would also like to take this opportunity to send my condolences to Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha’s family and friends and Leicester City. What a terrible tragedy and any club in the world would be lucky to have an owner who had the same amount of passion as he did. It’s always the good ones. RIP
