Ex-Charlton director: 'Why Roland still has to go'

Celebration time: Jake Forster-Caskey mobbed after scoring at Bradford

Craig Norris is a former Valley Party candidate who subsequently served on the board of Charlton Athletic as an elected director for two years from 1995-1997, including working closely with current director Richard Murray. He was also chair of Charlton Athletic Supporters' Club.


In VOTV137, Norris argued that despite improvements on the pitch the present ownership still needs to be removed.

Charlton boss Karl Robinson has made the club's first public comment on this website's takeover story following Saturday's fine 1-0 win at Bradford City.


Asked about the prospect of a sale by reporter Louis Mendez after the game, the Addicks boss said: “As far as we know, no. If it happens, it’ll be happening behind my back as I’ve been told no. I got a phone call yesterday from somebody from the board, just to say there’s rumours going around.


"I’ve been told categorically that won’t be the case right now. I’ve been told, as you were. Hopefully people will respect my honesty and be as straight as they can with people.”


While we have no reason to doubt that Robinson is being straightforward, this website stands by its previous report that a potential deal, brokered by Everton director Keith Harris, is in the works. While its timing and completion cannot be guaranteed, by the nature of the process, the variety and position of our sources mean we remain confident of the report's reliability. It is much more than a rumour.
