He does.

 

There have been conversations put it that way

 

I can't divulge but I can assure you that this forum is read by him, his people, his advisors, his son and others at the club.

And his legal team?

We did have one, by all accounts wasn’t that bad at her job either 

 

Everyone hated her because she was mean to some Charlton fans 


Personally don’t think she had the control. The CEO should be public facing, talking to the media, issuing statements on the club website, setting the identity of the club and supporting the manager with financing player deals, creating a culture that runs throughout the club in every single department.

 

All we ever heard from Katrien is she helped secure a Pop up store in Meadowhall. She left after just over a year in post.

Hmmm. When he took us over I said (probably in here) that we became at the mercy of an unknown and it would be a rollercoaster.

He started well, albeit with the potg prices ringing faint alarm bells. Pearson and Roeder, not people I was big fans of but at least with a knowledge of English football, seemed to be guiding him and we were looking good. Albeit with some odd defeats thrown in.

 

Second season, fletcher was expensive but kind of understandable. I admit to being delighted we signed Abdi. It was January 2017 when it began to go wrong: I honestly thought Rhodes was a daft signing when we could have addressed two other areas instead. If DC was genuinely swayed by fans wanting him then more fool him. I would love to know what caused CC to change his philosophy that season from high press, extra runners to a static approach.

 

Since then... who persuaded him to appoint Jos? Can only be someone with his ear like the poisonous guy with the king off Lord Of The Rings. Inexplicable signings... brief sanity with Bruce’s team who I suspect had the experience and confidence to do it their way.

 

Bullen strikes me as a loyal, if subservient employee. Monk... damaged goods who probably only took it as his reputation had been sullied.

 

In short.... DC is probably well intentioned but has made monumental mistakes. I recall him saying we were going to be financially aggressive, but then cutting adrift all his football advisors. At the time I could hear agents and advisory groups rubbing their hands in glee.

That's 99.9% how I see things, the only thing I differ on is I was chuffed to bits we signed Rhodes.

I also think FWIW that Paxo is a very dark subversive character who has made himself almost indispensable to Chansiri and not for the better.

I can't fault this post. 

 

We need some real leadership now. This is a crossroad's for us now and the smart decisions now will pay dividends in a couple of seasons.

 

Whether Monk is the man im not sure, im torn. No matter what he should have got better results with the squad he had. No question.

 

In Dejphon we trust!?

I can ... too not to

Anyway... apropos of nothing, here’s DC as a young man...

 

I couldn't see the likeness myself at first but the longer I looked at the photograph the more it began to make sense......:Chansiri:

Maybe named after a seedy, back street drinking establishment in Bangkok.

 

Kaz Bar

 

It's all falling into place now.

Can you ask him to sign Messi and Ronaldo too? Maybe get Klopp in an all as Nige’s Assistant? Ooooo and that Chelsea physio, she was well fit.

It's quite simple in my opinion. 

Chansiri has lost the plot and has to go taking Mr Paixo with him. 

New owners would need a complete clear out of football managerial staff.

A complete fresh start from the top with knowledgeable football people advising the owner/s. 

It's so obvious that DC will never take a "U" turn and admit he's got things wrong. 

SWFC is his club (in his mind) and he will continue to do what he THINKS is right even though everybody else KNOWS he's wrong. 

I honestly fear for the future of OUR club unless Chansiri sells up. 

Regardless of the result of the committee and points deduction unfortunately I do not believe that DC will initiate any changes for a realistic return OUR club to be a force in English football. We can hope and dream but realistically there is no chance under the current regime. 

He will have to take a huge loss to get rid but even in his blind faith it has to be better than continually chucking his money down the drain. 

He has failed in his task and needs to realise (but he won't) the job is too much for him. 

Admit defeat Mr Chansiri, sell up to somebody with money and knowledge and go back to Thailand and enjoy a stress free life. 

Thank you. 

 

P. S Somebody within the club told me last year that nobody dares disagree with him. He is surrounded by yes men. Those who did are no longer at the club.

So, Mr Chansiri - according to previous posters, you read Owlstalk. 
 

So, if you’re reading this, I would just like to ask you one simple question , please ?

 

Why is it that well respected and relatively successful managers such as Nigel Pearson and Chris Hughton are, apparently, not interested in coming here to work for you as managers at your football club ?
