The Former and controversial owner of Nottingham Forest could be our way out from Roland, but will he be any better?
After months and months of negotiations regarding the sale of Charlton, we look as though we have finally found our man in the form of Fawaz Al-Hasawi who was last at Nottingham Forest as chairman and owner alongside his cousin Omar Al-Hasawi and Hassan Saif. To say the least their stint at Forest was not what many fans had hoped for.
Al-Hasawi started his reign after lifelong supporter, Chairman and Owner Nigel Doughty sadly passed away on February 4th 2012 aged 54. The Kuwaiti’s reign at Forest consisted of a total of nine managers who walked in and out of the doors at the City Ground within just six years with names such as Alex McLeish(who was also interested in purchasing Charlton with the Australian consortium) Stuart Pearce and Dougie Freedman.
Does all this sound familiar to us Charlton fans?
After a disastrous reign at the Forest helm Al-Hasawi has admitted that he did make some mistakes in his time in Nottinghamshire, which I do respect him for because at least he can admit to his mistakes unlike someone we know.
Roland rambled on like he could take Charlton to the Premier League, but he never delivered on his promise in fact the way he ran the club it seemed like he wanted to take us down, we know that’s not the case but having a look at some of the players he brought in from his first season it really don’t look like a push for promotion, but really they looked like a team that had given up on football altogether.
No doubt it’s been a tough last few years for Charlton supporters and for it all to come to an end and finally have some positivity among the fans, media and of course the players would mean the world to us all.
Has this wealthy businessman got something to prove in English football? Us Charlton fans sure hope he does!
