What worries me about the comments on the previous post is that they come from a section of fans who, not long ago, would have thought Murray walked on water, but the longer this farce continues the more loyal fans are becoming disillusioned. This is not the fly by nights who only followed Charlton so they could watch the top Prem clubs, or the glory boys who have only been with Charlton since '97, its not the promiscuous supporters like Kelvin Mcenzie, this is, true supporters, supporters who were there when we last were in the third tier, who enjoyed the glory years but knew they would end. Charltons board cannot afford to lose their support. Players come and go, Managers come and go, Boards come and go, but most fans stay through thick and thin and it takes a lot to turn a Charlton fan against this board, but it is happening not through performances on the pitch, or even through the bad decisions which have been made ... no .. its the disrespect that this silence shows to the fans. We don't need to know what is going on, we don't need to know names but we should be told why there is such silence, because rumours grow and anticipation grows at the end of this something great may be declared, but if it isn't if its just a refinancing to enable us to limp on to the next step then we have a problem then expectations will not have been met and then the fans will leave in droves and the only premier league we will ever be thinking of will be the Blue Square Premier League.
