I suspect the true winner in this spat will be the party who have the pot to piss in, if the guy who has allegedly resigned is the principal shareholder it would suggest that he is the money, thus as Jed discovered any amount of fan schmoozing and bombastic fan pleasing statements means jack shit if you do not have the pot.
Agreed, but it would seem that the board have made this move because they don't think he does have said pot. Hence the emphasis on the proof of funds, seems their position is that he came in, waved a picture of a pot around, everyone said "Oh, nice, what a lovely pot", they've been asking him for a couple of months for a closer look at the pot and it seems he can't or won't produce it.

Who knows*, suspect the real winners will ultimately be our learned friends...

Possibly a lesson for all football supporters in being careful what you wish for.

*Although you have got to be some sort of numb nuts to end up with someone being a majority shareholder in the company without putting cash in, assuming they are being entirely truthful!

True. Almost certainly more to this than meets the eye, a murky tale lurks beneath no doubt, it usually does

Apparently, a fella called McCarthy, who was instrumental in introducing Steve Dale to Bury, is also responsible for introducing said chairman to Charlton.

Football stinks.

Blame the virus to carry out a cutting restructure.... This will be happening all over and most just in football.
