My blogging this year has hardly been prolific but it would be remiss of me not to post on the last day of both the year and decade.
For us Addicks 2019 will be remembered mostly for promotion and that wonderful late May day at Wembley. It should have been even more notable with the completion of the takeover by ESI. However, the EFL have ensured that the odious Belgian holds on to the last vesitges of ownership like a tenacious bogey!
On the pitch the damage Duchatelet has brought upon our club becomes clearer by the day with an ever increasing injury list for an already depleted squad.
Lee Bowyer continues to do a remarkable job and it is for him as much as oursleves that one hopes the takeover completes, his contract is properly sorted and he is given the resources to take the club forward.
My fervent hope is that all matters will be complete within the few days and that appropriate investment follows. Then it certainly will be a happy new year!
May I wish you all a happy and prosperous new year!
I saw my first game back in the sixties when my dad took me along on a very wet and windy day. I recall having to turn my back to the pitch because of it.....shame you can't do that sometimes now !
I sit in the East Stand with my lads who both keep the faith.
I live 75 miles from the Valley having moved away from the area in 1984 but my heart has never left !
